Nothing sticks out like an eyesore than a lawn overrun with weeds in an otherwise immaculate yard. If you happen to be an avid gardener or an enthusiast, having some moderate knowledge of weeds and how to control them would be very beneficial. On the other hand, it would also be wise to have the contact number of a good lawn care professional, just in case you decide to let the experts handle it for you.
Some weeds can be much more difficult to eradicate and control than others. For example, field bindweed (also known as morning glory) is one of the more difficult weeds to control and may require multiple treatments. Other weeds such as dandelions can be much easier to control. There are many different types of products on the market to control weeds. For example, an ester-based weed control product works best in cooler temperatures (spring & fall). While amine-based products work best in warmer temperatures (summer). Some weed control products kill everything, including the grass. You also need to make sure that the active ingredient in the product you are using will work on the type of lawn weed you are trying to eradicate.
Suffice it to say that if you are contemplating hiring a professional lawn care company, you won’t regret it. Sometimes it is nice to sit back, breathe a sigh of relief and let the experts handle it – making sure your lawn is getting the proper care and attention that it truly deserves.
