Can I Do It Myself?
The occasional weed in your yard requires little more than digging it out of the ground. However, a yard overrun with weeds, especially hard to get rid of weeds such as Creeping Charlie, may require more than an afternoon of hand weeding or a quick spray of a store bought weed killer. There are caveats to using herbicides which you may not know that could have lasting negative effects on other plants in your yard.
There are a few things you may not have known about weeds and weed control:
- Most herbicides used for weed control in lawns are designed to kill broadleaf plants. Your trees and shrubs are broadleaf plants.
- Lawn companies that promise 100% weed control achieve this by coating your entire yard with herbicides multiple times a year. While a 90-95% weed-free lawn is a healthier and more achievable standard for your lawn.
- The best way to control weeds is to maintain a healthy, dense turf. This is done through improving the soil condition, applying quality granular fertilizer, and employing proper lawn mowing and lawn watering practices.
- Weeds are symptomatic of deeper problems within the lawn and soil.
