Overcoming Lawn Care Weed Problems

World Of Lawn CareLawn care weed problems can unfortunately happen at any time of the year to even the most diligent of homeowners and professional landscapers. Many individuals who try to proactively treat weeds end up with lawn damage, an increased number of weeds, and even toxic residue that contaminates their grass and surrounding vegetation.

Chemical weed killers, also known as herbicides, are frequently recommended by landscaping product retailers to kill crabgrass, clover, dandelions, and other common types of weeds. However, these products are also potentially toxic and dangerous to children and pets.

Instead of dousing your lawn with toxic chemicals, there are less harmful alternatives now available. Natural lawn care weed control is a safer alternative that doesn’t harm the environment and can actually help improve the overall quality of your turf. Corn gluten is one of the most common natural weed killers, and it is highly effective. It also adds vital nitrogen to the soil, giving your lawn the ability to naturally fight off weed and insect infestations. There are also other natural vinegar-based weed killers that will rid your lawn of weeds without harming the soil’s earthworms or your pets and children.

Free seasonal remindersOf course, the best defense against weeds is to maintain a healthy lawn. This involves proper watering, mowing, and occasional fertilization and aeration. As well, it’s always helpful to start with healthy soil and the right variety of grass.

While a lush, green lawn is the main goal, a random dandelion or clover is not necessarily a bad thing, and in fact, sometimes just pulling weeds when you see them is easier and certainly much safer than spraying toxic herbicides on them.
