Weed Control 8 Step Program

Weeds are one of the biggest complaints from homeowners wanting a beautiful lawn. With our relatively mild temperatures we are forced to deal with an assortment of weeds all year long. It often seems like certain weeds are nearly impossible to get rid of. Getting weeds under control requires a carefully timed and aggressive approach.

Common Broadleaf Lawn Weeds
We are inundated with all sorts of weeds in our region including tough-to-manage grassy weeds and an array of different broadleaf weeds. Some of the worst broadleaf weeds include:

  • Clover
  • Dandelion
  • Thistle
  • Henbit
  • Chickweed
  • Spurge
  • Crabgrass

The ideal approach to killing weeds like these is an annual lawn care plan that includes selective, liquid broadleaf weed control. While some weeds are easier to get under control than others, with a customized plan developed for your property, you’ll be on your way to a weed-free lawn. Ask about our annual weed abatement program that preempts annoying weeds before they take over. Our services are tailored to your specific type of grass, the season and area you live in.

If you have tried to take on weed control yourself, you probably experienced a lot of frustration. The broadleaf herbicide products available to consumers aren’t as effective as professional-grade products. Knowing when to apply and being able to identify the various types of weeds can also be challenging to the untrained eye.

Investing in professional weed control services can save you time and money in the long run. Not only will you get better control over your weeds, but you will also have more time to simply enjoy your lush and healthy lawn.

Weed control is offered as part of our comprehensive lawn care program that can help you grow a thicker and healthier lawn making it tough for weeds to invade. The healthier your lawn, the more likely it will be able to defend itself against weeds.

Our 8-step annual program includes a series of 2 pre-emergent treatments, 2 post-emergent treatments and 4 lawn fertilizations. What to expect:

  • January 15-March 31 Winter Fertilizer application to encourage healthy Spring growth.
  • January 16-April 1 Spring Pre-Emergent prevents weed seedlings and sprouts.
  • April 1-June 30 Spring Herbicide to kill weeds already sprouted and growing.
  • April 17-July 31 Spring Fertilizer application to keep lawn thick and healthy, making it harder for weeds to grow.
  • June 1-September 30 Summer Fertilizer application to boost your lawn’s growth during the hot weather.
  • July 17-October 16 Summer Pre-Emergent to prevent seasonal weed seedlings and sprouts.
  • September 18-November 20 Fall Herbicide to kill already spouted and growing weeds.
  • October 16-December 18 Fall Fertilizer to overwinter your lawn.

You can join our program anytime. Each treatment application will be billed after it has been completed. You do not need to pay for the year in advance.
