If you've had to deal with weeds overtaking your property in the past, you know just how much of a problem they can be. Weeds are not only unattractive and can drag down your curb appeal, but they also steal nutrients and resources from grass and plants. The two main ways to deal with weeds are by using pre-emergent and post-emergent weed control treatments. Pre-emergent weed control treatments are designed to prevent weeds from sprouting and post-emergent weed control is designed to eliminate existing weeds. In our area of Indiana, the best way to deal with weeds is to apply a pre-emergent treatment in the spring before many of them have the chance to sprout. You'll also want to use post-emergent treatments throughout the rest of the growing season any time you notice weeds on your lawn. To achieve a weed-free lawn, you'll want to utilize both of these treatment options.
Apply a pre-emergent weed control treatment in the spring.
Spring is known as the season of growth, and that doesn't just include flowers and plants, but weeds as well. To get ahead of weeds, you'll want to apply a pre-emergent weed control treatment in early spring. This treatment will create a barrier on your lawn that is designed to prevent newly germinated weed seeds from sprouting through the soil, so you won't even have to see them. The timing of this treatment is crucial because if you apply it too late in the spring when weeds have already started to sprout, it will be ineffective. Pre-emergent weed control only works in the early spring, so if you waited too long, it will be a waste of money to apply it and you'll need to deal with the weeds using post-emergent treatments.
Apply post-emergent weed control treatments any time that you notice weeds on your lawn.
When it comes to weeds that are currently on your lawn, the best way to deal with them is through post-emergent weed control treatments. These treatments are applied directly to existing weeds and they should eliminate the weeds in just a couple of weeks. Because weeds tend to grow throughout the spring, summer, and fall seasons, you'll need to be on the lookout for them throughout most of the year. You can apply these treatments any time that you notice weeds on your lawn, and you'll likely need to apply post-emergent treatments in every season but winter to achieve a weed-free lawn.
Weed control treatments are effective at eliminating a variety of different weeds including crabgrass, dandelions, clover, chickweed, and more!
For best results, you should use both pre-emergent and post-emergent weed control treatments.
Because weeds can be such a problem here in the Elkhart, IN area, you'll want to tackle them using both pre-emergent and post-emergent weed control treatments. While pre-emergent treatments are effective at preventing a majority of weeds, they can't stop them all and some weeds will manage to slip past them. That's where post-emergent treatments come in. For the rest of the year, you will want to utilize post-emergent treatments to get rid of any weeds that sprout up on your property so you can achieve a weed-free lawn.
