PRE-EMERGENT WEED CONTROL
Here at Ultra Lawn, we understand how important it is to have an appealing lawn. We also understand that a lot goes into this such as fertilization, weed control, bush pruning, etc. One of the easiest ways to ensure you have a lush green lawn is to use some sort of pre-emergent weed control.
What are Pre-Emergent Herbicides?
Pre-emergent herbicides are chemicals that prevent unwanted weeds in your yard. They don’t prevent the germination of the seed, but it makes it so that the seed will not sprout.
Application timing is one of the biggest determining factors of weed prevention success. If the weed is already visible, pre-emergent weed control substances will not work. These herbicides are to prevent the growth, not kill it during the growth.
When to Apply Pre-Emergent Herbicides?
Early Spring and Fall are the most effective times of the year to apply a pre-emergent weed control. This is because most weeds sprout during Spring and Fall. The timing of your herbicide application is dependent on the type of weed growing in your yard. That’s why it’s important to contact professionals like Ultra Lawn to help you identify what types of weeds you’re dealing with.
Spring applications are used to prevent summer annual weeds. Summer annual weeds are both grassy and broad-leaf types.
Fall applications are designed to prevent Winter annual weeds. These weeds germinate during the Fall, and timing is very important to successfully preventing winter annual weeds from spreading.
