Simple Weed Prevention (pt.1)

Weeds are a bane to a good lawn.  You spend all this time perfecting your turf and then an annoying little weed pops up to take away precious nutrients away from your grass.  Not only are they unsightly in many cases, they also can end up harming their surroundings.

We’re going to start with the best and most obvious advice that is really the genesis of this lawn issue.

Keep it healthy!

A healthy lawn is going to best compete with weeds.  Essentially what you want to do is outgrown and outsmart the competing weeds.  You can do this pretty simply by ensuring you are following proper watering techniques.  Aeration with some great topsoil will be beneficial as well.  Talk to us about how to keep your lawn healthy!

Eliminate

Walk on over and yank that weed up!  Do your best to pull the root up as well.  You want to nip it in the bud before you see too much growth.  Other practices can involve much more complex activity from you.  Using a winged weeder can help when there are more than just a few weeds.  A garden hoe could do the trick as well!  But what about when you get to the point where you think chemicals might work?
