When to Spray for Weeds… Wait Just a Bit!

No one likes to look at weeds in their lawn, especially in the spring when the grass is turning green after a long winter’s sleep! Don’t panic when you see an abundance of weeds in your lawn at the beginning of spring. Chances are that the weeds you are looking at are “annual weeds”. Annuals weeds that grow this time of year do not grow back after a mowing. So, you can get rid of annual weeds with the first two or three mowing’s of the spring season and may not have to use pesticides early in the spring.

The best weed control is to treat for weeds before they appear with pre-emergence herbicides, (see our previous blog for application timings). However, for pesky “perennial-weeds” that survive the mower’s blades, a post emergence herbicide may need to be used.

Weeds that are persisting past Memorial Day are most likely a perennial variety and will need sprayed. If you have this issue, feel free to call me and I would be happy to suggest spray options or a good comprehensive treatment program to combat the weeds in your lawn!
