It seems like as soon as you spot one weed, they begin to multiply by the hour until they become a huge problem. While getting rid of the weeds may seem like a daunting task, it will boost your turf’s health and make your landscape more appealing. The most effective way to get rid of weeds is to make sure your lawn is in a challenging environment for them to thrive. For example, grass that is low mowed, water-deprived, and compacted soil all promote the growth of weeds. So, avoiding these three issues is a great way to help keep the weeds away permanently.

Thoroughly examine your lawn.

Thoroughly examining your lawn will help you understand what type of weeds you have on your hands. There are certain treatments tailored to specific weeds, so you need to be sure of what you are dealing with before purchasing the right product.

Pre-emergent vs. post-emergent.

 In order to effectively treat the weeds, you need to know what stage the weeds are in to treat them appropriately. If the weeds are already growing and established, you will need to purchase a post-emergent treatment. If you are attempting to target them prior to the growing season, you should purchase a pre-emergent treatment.

Follow the instructions to properly kill the weeds. 

It’s essential to have a clear understanding of the directions before applying the treatment. Be sure to read the packaging thoroughly before starting in order to know how much of the product to apply and when to do it. Doing this will help ensure treatment is effective.

Maintain your lawn.

Be sure to follow a lawn maintenance schedule throughout the seasons. Taking care of your lawn will help keep it weed-free and looking beautiful.
