Spring Into Weed Control For A Great Start
To The Growing Season!

weed control for a beautiful lawnAs soon as the weather warms up in spring we're all eager to get outside and enjoy the world turning green again. While you're out there enjoying the new season, why not get a head start on keeping the yard looking great and spring into weed control? It really doesn't take very much effort, and there's a way to do it without making your yard off limits for days. By using corn gluten meal, you'll have a preemergent herbicide that kills weeds before they show up, and it is organic.

Why so early in the growing season? Spring is a time for rebirth, but not just for your perennials, shrubs, trees, and lawn; it's also the time for things that are not so nice to grow. Crabgrass and dandelions start growing like crazy, too! Hitting them right away with weed control and stopping them before they grow up means a lot less pulling out by hand for you later.

What does it do? Corn gluten meal dries up the root as it emerges from the seed, killing the plant before it shows. It's so good at this you'll want to be sure not to plant any seeds of your own for 60 days before and after applying! At the same time, healthy fully-grown plants are not hurt by this, rather they are helped. With a nitrogen content of 9%, corn gluten meal is a true weed and feed that will nurture your yard with fertilizer for 3 months. This saves you the chore of feeding separately.

Simply apply the amount on the package directions and water in. Other than not planting seeds, the only other thing to avoid is poking holes in the ground. This herbicide works like a blanket of protection, and any new holes will be a spot that's unprotected. The last thing you want to do is provide a welcoming space for airborne weed seeds.

How safe is it to use? This is a food by-product that is organic. There is no danger in using this, unlike with chemical herbicides. Apply, and you can immediately start enjoying your yard, not watching it from a distance. In fact, corn gluten meal is not just used for weed control, but it's also used in pet food and animal feed.

All in all, there is a simple way to stop weeds before they start by using this product to dry up the new weeds, feed your established plants, and doing it all without poisonous chemicals. You don't miss any time enjoying the outdoors waiting for the chemicals to be "safe" enough to walk on your property. While you're enjoying the new life spring brings, give yourself a chance to enjoy your weed-free yard all year long by springing into weed control with corn gluten meal.
