How We Control Weeds

Our company offers a weed control program that is specially formulated to make sure that your lawn looks its very best the whole year. Our weed control program involves 7 applications throughout the year, using a combination of both liquid and granular applications.

In our 7 step program, we first apply liquid applications of pre-emergent herbicides and post-emergent herbicides in the spring. This helps to prevent crabgrass from germinating and also helps to get rid of any broadleaf weeds that have already started growing in your lawn.

Throughout the summer months we will use a granular fertilization to ensure that your lawn is growing strong and healthy. We will also treat your lawn during this time for any weeds that appear.

Once the fall arrives, our lawn care program varies according to the type of turf that you have in your yard. For fescue grass, our weed control service continues with the granular fertilization and liquid herbicides for weed control until winter comes. For warm season lawns such as Bermuda and Zoysia, we will prepare your lawn for the winter when the grass will be dormant.

In addition to weed control, we also offer the following services to help keep your lawn fresh and at its best all year long: shrub care services, tree care services, and seeding services.

Pre-Emergent Herbicides

Pre-emergent herbicides are applied to your lawn prior to the germination of crabgrass and some broadleaf weeds. Pre-emergent herbicides inhibit the growth of very young seedlings and weed seeds that are just beginning to germinate. The best time to apply pre-emergent herbicides is in the spring, before weed seeds begin to grow.

Post-Emergent Herbicides

Post-emergent herbicides target weeds that are already growing in your lawn. Weeds absorb the post-emergent herbicide through their leaves and within days begin to wilt and die.  Regular applications of post-emergent are important because if your weeds continue to grow unchecked, they will mature and create more seeds, multiplying your weed problem.
