We Will Control Any Weed Problem

It can be challenging to identify the types of weeds in your yard. It’s essential to know the type of weed to determine the best control method for it. We break weeds down into three categories, including sedges, grasses, and broadleaf weeds. We can also classify them into their lifestyle, including annual, biennial, and perennial. Grassy weeds often blend in with your yard making it difficult to spot other grassy weeds and crabgrass. Broadleaf weeds are most often unwanted plant life in your yard, including ground ivy and dandelions. Sedge weeds typically have triangular stems with leaves that are arranged in groups of three, including purple nutsedge and green kyllinga. Some of the most common types of weeds we control include the following:

  • Chickweed
  • Clover
  • Foxtail
  • Wild violet
  • Spurge
  • Plantains
  • Crabgrass
  • Nutsedge
  • Dandelions
  • Ragweed
  • Thistle
  • Button Weed
  • Dallisgrass

What Are Pre-Emergent and Post-Emergent Treatments?

Lawn Pride of Athens, Florence, and Muscle Shoals offers pre-emergent and post-emergent weed control treatments. Pre-emergent weed control treatments eliminate weeds before their seedlings have the chance to germinate. Post-emergent treatments eradicate weeds that have started to grow. We use multiple types of pre-emergent and post-emergent weed treatments that match the types of weeds in your yard.

Weed Control Frequently Asked Questions

We understand weed control can be overwhelming. There is conflicting information about the best way to control weeds in your yard. The truth is that every lawn is unique and needs customized treatment plans. We consider the variety of weeds, your type of grass, and the geographic location to find the best treatment for you. Our service professionals will help you better understand weed control and what it can do for you by answering some frequently asked questions about weed control.

How Fast Does Weed Control Work?

The length it takes to eliminate the weeds in your yard depends on the variety and type of weeds. We use a specially formulated broadleaf treatment that can kill weeds within 10 days. It often takes multiple applications to eliminate clovers and ground ivy. Our pre-emergent weed control treatments should work without you ever noticing a weed growing in your yard.

Do I Need to Stay Off My Grass After Weed Control Treatment?

We recommend staying off your grass for at least 30 minutes after weed control services. Our weed control treatments are applied according to EPA regulations and are safe, but they can still irritate your skin and are harmful if ingested. The sun breaks down the treatments since they are designed to bond with the foliage. The treatments should break down in about 30 minutes.

What Else Can I Do to Fight Weeds?

Our service professionals are happy to help you better understand weed control. We recommend basic lawn maintenance services to boost the health of your grass and stop weeds in their path. It’s important to give your roots nutrition with routine fertilization treatments. Seeding and aeration are excellent ways to eliminate space for weeds to germinate, so they cannot take over your yard. We offer the 7-Application Program to bundle these lawn maintenance services into a comprehensive lawn care package for optimal lawn health.
