We usually don’t think about those yellow blooms until they erupt across the landscape in the spring.   But thinking ahead will help control dandelions and other broadleaf weeds before they get a chance to grow next season.

Treat Dandelions Fall

Treating your lawn with a broadleaf herbicide in September and October works for a couple of reasons.

  • It will kill established weeds as well as any seedlings that have come up over the summer.
  • As the dandelions prepare for winter, they start to store nutrients in the roots as a reserve.  So by applying herbicide now, the dandelion will be pulling it deep into the root system.

If you only have a few weeds to tackle, consider a spot treatment.   Over use of herbicides is ineffective and can kill ornamental plants.
