Baton Rouge control service
Weed Control Service in Baton Rouge, LA
One of the more common complaints that residents have about their yards relates to weeds. Weeds are problematic for several reasons, and they create stress for residents almost throughout the entire year because of Baton Rouge's long growing season. Regardless of the type of weeds that have infiltrated your yard, you may be dismayed that the weeds sprout up at a faster rate than the grass grows. After taking the time to mow and trim your lawn, you may expect it to maintain a manicured look for up to a week or longer. However, some weeds can sprout up within days and may leave your lawn looking overgrown.
In addition to the aesthetic impact that weeds have on curb appeal, they are problematic for another significant reason. Regardless of whether perennial or annual weeds have infiltrated your yard, the plants' rapid growth rate often stresses your grass. Weeds prevent grass from taking in all of the sunlight, nutrients, and water that it needs. Because of this, the weeds will continue to grow and spread as your grass becomes weaker. Unless weed control steps are taken regularly, you will eventually have a yard full of weeds. This is not a problem that you can turn a blind eye to if you want to maintain a beautiful lawn.
In many areas of the country, weeds are problematic for only a few months each year. This is not the case in Baton Rouge. In this southern city, the high temperature during the short-lived winter season is in the 60s. Snow, ice, and freezing temperatures are uncommon. During most of the remaining months, daily highs are the 80s or 90s. More than that, Baton Rouge's location on the banks of the Mississippi River and slightly inland from the Gulf of Mexico means that humidity and regular rainfall are common. In fact, high humidity is problematic throughout most of the year, and average rainfall is approximately 60 inches annually. Your lawn may receive ample precipitation all year that allows the grass and the weeds to thrive.
Numerous weeds can take over your lawn and gardens. Common species in the Baton Rouge area are Florida Pusley, Crabgrass, Spotted Spurge, Dollar Weed and many others. One of the most effective ways to control weeds is by pulling them out individually by the roots. However, this is also one of the most labor-intensive and time-consuming weed control methods. Even when you have removed every weed in your yard, new seeds can make their way to your property via the wind, animals, and insects. This means that removing weeds by hand is a never-ending project.
Other Baton Rouge residents may turn to herbicide products available through stores. However, there are numerous products available, and they may have a different impact on your yard. For example, some products will kill all of the weeds as well as the grass. More than that, the chemicals may remain in the soil for weeks or more, and this makes it impossible to re-sod your yard during this period. Other herbicides are designed to kill specific types of weeds, and they may not meet your full weed control needs. Some people are concerned about the impact that the products will have on their yards. Others are concerned about the impact on the environment and their loved ones, and they do not feel confident when applying them.
Weed control in the lawn is only part of the project. Weeds must also be removed from your gardens, from the crevices in concrete and even from underneath a wooden deck. When weeds are permitted to grow in these areas, your home's exterior could take on a drab look. More than that, mature weeds will go to seed. Seeds can spread throughout the yard, and this can make it more challenging and time-consuming to keep the lawn weed-free.
With all of these factors in mind, you understandably want to find a better way to address your weed problem. You need a solution that produces thorough, fast results throughout your entire property today. You also need a solution that can easily be repeated as needed to address new growth before it becomes problematic.
Rather than spending time pulling weeds or trying to find the right products to apply to your yard, you would prefer to enjoy time off of work on your own terms. Baton Rouge has a relaxed, comfortable vibe that many residents love, and it also has an exceptional culture. It has been a melting pot throughout the last several hundred years, and the food, festivals, music, and more all express these blended cultures in unique ways. Special events, including professional soccer game matches, seasonal Mardi Gras events, the Bayou Country Superfest, and others, can only be enjoyed on specific dates.
Small venues host live musical performances with zydeco, jazz and other genres throughout the year, or you may watch a major performance at top spots like Swine Palace, Baton Rouge River Center and other venues. Outdoor recreation is popular with Baton Rouge residents year-round. In addition to fishing and boating on local waterways, attractions like the Baton Rouge Zoo, the local arboretum and other spots may entice you to leave weed control for another day.
