TIPS FOR SPRING WEED CONTROL
Focus on Your Grass
When your grass is healthy, it’s hard for weeds to rear their ugly heads. If you have a lot of weeds in your yard already, it might be an indication that your soil needs more nutrients added. Weeds thrive in poor-nutrient soil. Impeccable Landscapes near Spokane recommends that you invest in some great lawn fertilizer before the spring fully hits, and then continue treatments every six weeks during the growing season.
Weeds have a hard time growing in mulch. Obviously, this is for parts of your lawn where you don’t want grass. However, if you lay down mulch (usually about two inches will do the trick), weeds find it very difficult to take root. You can instead try rocks, but because of the inherent construction of rocks, weeds usually can find an opening in the holes and cracks they leave.
Mow Your Lawn Higher
Weeds love the sun. Thus, if you create more shade, they tend not to thrive. You can do this easily by raising the height that you mow your grass in the spring. This allows your grass to grow taller and thicker, which throws more shade on your lawn, thus helping to prevent weed growth.
When you water consistently and for longer periods of time, water has time to soak into the earth. This causes your grass to grow deeper roots to reach the water. Weeds will become crowded, and it will be harder for them to grow properly. Shallow, quick spurts of watering causes your lawn to have shallow roots, which can lead to a quick death if a heat wave or drought comes.
