Weeds can be tough to control, especially in spring. And that’s why many homeowners in the Carolina area call LawnAmerica and depend upon us to help control weeds. Weeds that are growing now are mainly winter annual weeds, which germinate way back in fall and into early spring. They are hard to control now since they are going to flower and at the end of their normal life cycle. Post-emergent weed sprays are usually effective, but they are not perfect. There are things a homeowner can do to help with controlling existing weeds.
- Mow the weeds and lawn about 7 days after a treatment.
- Make sure to water in the pre-emergent applied to prevent summer weeds such as crabgrass.
- Be patient, as it takes time for weeds to die, especially in cool weather.
- Call LawnAmerica for free service calls if needed to spot-treat persisting weeds.
