Combating Spokane Weeds
There are three different types of weeds that grow commonly in Washington. These are bushy weeds, grassy weeds, and broadleaf weeds. For the most part, all of these weeds can be found year round which makes them incredibly hard to get rid of. The best way to ensure that they do not come back is to physically remove them and then replace the holes with new sod. Broadleaf weeds will grow during the warm season in areas that are moist and wet. This makes Washington the ideal location for them to grow. They will form in thick patches and are very easy to identify as they have very large leaves. Regardless of what kind of weeds you have in your lawn, we know how to get rid of them and you can learn just that below.
How To Tackle Weed Maintenance
Promote Healthy Growth of Your Lawn
The best way to ensure that weeds do not grow in your yard is by tending to your lawn so that the turf stays healthy and thriving. When your grass is doing well, this means that weeds will not have the space they need to grow and take over your lawn.
Know Your Grass
Since there are many different species of grass, you need to be familiar with what kind you have so that you can properly care for it and defend it against weeds. When you know what sorts of weeds like to take over your specific type of grass, you can know better how to prevent that from happening.
Practice Maintenance Properly
Most people think that maintaining a lawn is easy, but this simply isn’t the case. You need to learn the basics of lawn maintenance to ensure that your lawn will grow and that you will have an absence of weeds. Some of the most important practices are knowing how much water your lawn needs, when you should fertilize your lawn, and how short you should cut your grass. When you do all of these things the right way, you will be setting your lawn up for success and avoiding weeds all at the same time.
It is important that you also wash your trimmer or mower every time you use them in an area that was infested with weeds. If you do not, you stand the chance to contaminate the rest of your lawn the next time you use these devices. You should also consider composting or disposing of the clippings in your lawn that contain weeds.
Don’t Use Toxic Weed Killers
There are many different types of weed killers on the market, many of which are toxic and pose a serious threat to both pets and children. On the other hand, there are many weed killers that are safe to use on your lawn that will ensure a weed-free lawn and that won’t harm you or any member in your family.
