This time of the year weeds like crabgrass and nutsedge may be popping up in your lawn (see pictures below). We treat both of these weeds during the 3rd WeedZero application (which is the application we’re currently applying). 

Although being on our WeedZero Program over time can significantly decrease the weeds in your lawn, another factor that affects weed growth is the thickness of your grass. A thin lawn with bare spots can be an incredibly hard lawn in which to control weeds. Where bare spots are present is where weeds will grow. 

Do you know what helps prevent weeds? A lawn with healthy strands of turfgrass (also known as a full lawn). If you’re struggling with a thin lawn, a fall seeding can give you a beautiful, thick lawn that is less prone to weeds. Schendel recommends a fall seeding at least every 2 years. 

Our fall seeding slots fill up quickly, so if you aren’t already signed up for a fall seeding and would like one this year, please let us know as soon as you can. 

Lastly, proper watering plays an important role in the health of your lawn. Check out our recent blog on tips for summer watering.

In conclusion, there are many factors that can impact effective weed control such as the thickness of your lawn and proper watering. It’s important to consider these factors when trying to gain control of the weeds in your lawn.
