Weed management in landscape plantings is often made difficult by the complexity of a variety of plantings, including a mix of annual and perennial ornamentals. The great diversity of ornamental grass species, soil types, slopes, and mulches creates the need for a variety of weed management options. There are also considerations regarding public concern about the use of chemicals to control weeds and their effect on water quality if the herbicide moves offsite through runoff. The choice of a specific weed management program depends on the weeds present and the types of turf or ornamentals planted in the area. Due to all of these factors, weeds in landscape plantings are usually controlled by a combination of non-chemical and chemical methods.
Weeds thrive when your lawn is week. They can grow in soil that is too dry or too wet, in thin areas, or in underfed grass. If you keep your lawn healthy with the proper annual treatments, then weeds will have a more difficult time growing.
Our team of dedicated experts and professional spraying equipment provide the necessary tools to take care of your lawn’s needs to stay on a healthy track.
Broadleaf plantain is a perennial weed that tends to appear in poor, thin lawns with compacted soil. It is quite drought tolerant, but thrives in overwatered soil. Plants can grow in shady or sunny conditions. Hand-pulling is probably the best option to control broadleaf plantain. A post-emergent, broadleaf herbicide provides effective kill on large populations.
Prickly lettuce is an annual weed that thrives in cool seasons of the year. It’s a winter weed. Plants typically appear in disturbed soil, but they also invade thin lawns with irrigated, nutrient-rich soil. Leaves have prickles along their undersides, and plants can be uncomfortable for bare feet. Prickly lettuce spreads by wind-borne seeds, much like a dandelion. Long tap roots make hand-pulling a challenge.
