Did you know that weed seeds can lay dormant in the soil for up to 10 years and germinate when the conditions become favorable? All they need is the right amount of sunlight and moisture.
Although we apply pre-emergent herbicides to halt the germination of weed seeds, unfortunately, some weeds are not affected by our pre-emergent. That means some unique service visits may become necessary. We must apply a post-emergent for these difficult weeds after they have germinated.
One of the best pre-emergents is a thick, green, healthy turf! When your yard is very thick, it will prevent sunlight from reaching the weed seeds in the soil and often prevent weed seed germination.
Sometimes, we wait a few extra days to mow your grass and start seeing weed seeds. When you cut it, what happens to those weed seeds? They spread more weeds! One seed head at the top of one weed stalk can produce hundreds of seeds. Multiply the number of those weeds you can see, and your yard will be full of weeds pretty soon! An effective weed control service is required to tackle this situation.
