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 we start to see 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 this times the number of those weeds you can see, and pretty soon, your yard is full of weeds!
