Weeds are invasive and can quickly spread throughout a lawn, depriving grass and other plants of sunlight, water, and nutrients from the soil. It’s often challenging to eliminate weeds once they take over. However, all is not lost. We can restore the look and health of your lawn with professional weed control services.

Liquid Weed Control Application

Weeds reproduce quickly, with many varieties spreading thousands of seeds during a single growing season. Without prompt action, these invasive plants can take over your yard and prevent grasses and other plants from receiving adequate nutrients, moisture, and sunlight.

Weed control is the best way to combat this issue. There are two types of weed control: liquid and granular. Liquid weed control is a blend of concentrated herbicide and water, while the granular variety resembles fertilizer pellets with a herbicide coating.

We prefer to use liquid weed control treatments because:

  • It provides a uniform application. When we mix the herbicide in water, we can evenly spray your entire lawn with the solution to ensure that every section of the lawn receives the right amount of weed control.
  • It reaches plant roots easily. Herbicides work by absorbing into the plant's foliage and down into its root system. Because liquid weed control sticks to leaves, the roots will receive the treatment faster than dry granular pellets.

Pre-Emergent and Post-Emergent Applications

Ridding a lawn of weeds takes work, but it is possible with post-emergent weed treatments. These applications effectively eliminate existing mature weeds. Depending on the number of weeds present in your yard, you may need several treatments to eradicate unwanted plants.

Pre-emergent weed control prevents weeds from erupting through the soil. Our lawn care professionals can apply a pre-emergent treatment in March or April that creates a herbicide barrier a few inches beneath the surface. Weed seeds will grow during the growing season, but they will die once they reach the barrier.

The result of both treatments is a beautiful, weed-free lawn.
