Weed Control Services Designed for You
Lawn Pride: The Leading Name in Weed Killing Services
As homeowners encourage the healthy growth of their grass, they often create an ideal environment for weeds too. Fighting weeds can feel like a never-ending battle. Pulling them by hand is time-consuming and might not solve the problem. On the other hand, you must use the right herbicide for the weed invasion you are combatting. Otherwise, you could damage your yard or fail to see results. The most reliable weed control method is to call the pros. Lawn Pride offers expert weed control services. Our highly trained specialists can identify the weeds in your yard and create an effective treatment plan. Learn more about our weed control services.
We Can Handle Any Weed Problem
What type of weeds do you have in your yard? Most homeowners can spot weeds, but it is difficult for the average person to identify the specific type of weed. This is important because different types of weeds require different weed control methods. There are two main categories of weeds: broadleaf weeds and grassy weeds. Broadleaf weeds come in many forms, including unwanted plant life like dandelions and ground ivy. Grassy weeds tend to blend in with your lawn. That’s why it can be difficult to spot crabgrass and other grassy weeds. Our lawn care and weed control team is equipped to fight any type of weed. Some of the most common weeds found in homeowner’s yards include the following.
- Wild violet
- Ground ivy
- Barnyard grass
- Coarse fescue
Preemergent and Post-Emergent Treatments
To effectively control the weeds in your lawn requires a two-pronged approach. We must prevent weeds before they begin to take hold, and we must kill the weeds that have already begun to show. Lawn Pride’s weed control services implement preemergent and post-emergent weed control methods for your lawn. Preemergent treatments prevent weeds from growing in the first place, killing them before their seedlings ever germinate. Post-emergent treatments (often called weed killers) stop weeds that are already above ground. We have various types of preemergent and post-emergent weed treatments that we may use, depending on the type of weeds in your yard.
Frequently Asked Questions About Weed Control
The world of weed control can be confusing for the average homeowner. If you do some preliminary research, you may even find seemingly contradictory information. Every lawn is different based on the type of grass, geographic location, and variety of weed encroachment. The most reliable way to get information about your weeds is to speak to an experienced lawn care expert from Lawn Pride. Below are the answers to a few of the most frequently asked questions about our weed control services.
How Long Will It Take for My Weeds to Die?
It will depend on the type and variety of weeds in your yard. Our specially formulated broadleaf treatments can kill weeds within 10 days. Some weeds, like clovers and ground ivy, will take several applications, though. If preemergent weed-killing services work as planned, you will never even notice those weeds in the first place.
How Long Do I Need to Stay Off the Grass After a Treatment?
A minimum of 30 minutes, but it is a good idea to wait longer if possible. While all our weed control treatments are EPA registered and applied according to EPA regulations, they can be harmful if ingested and can irritate the skin. The products are designed to bond with the foliage, and only the sun can break them down. That typically takes about 30 minutes. After that, you are free to let pets and children resume outside fun.
What Other Lawn Care Services Help Fight Weeds?
Some basic lawn maintenance techniques can improve the health of your grass and diminish the emergence of weeds. Keeping your roots well-fed with regular fertilization treatments is one such method. Aeration and seeding can also leave less room for weeds to germinate and take over your yard. Lawn Pride has special programs, like our 7-Application Program, that bundle all these services into one ultimate lawn care package.
