How do weeds get in my yard?

Weed seeds can be transported by wind, water, animals, soil amendments, or even poor quality grass seed. Once they’re in your property, the weeds will spread around. Even if you think they are gone for good, they can grow back again. This is because weeds can remain dormant in a lawn for up to several years before they begin to grow. The seeds need to reach the soil's surface and get proper sunlight and moisture before they can germinate.

The health of your lawn can be greatly impacted by the weeds on your property, so how you choose to control them is very important. You’re best equipped to fight weed invasion when you can identify common weeds and know the correct way to treat that specific type. Give us a call if you’re unsure about the weeds on your property. We’d be happy to help.

What kinds of weeds are growing on my lawn?

There are three main classifications of weeds, which all grow differently depending on your type of lawn grass:

  • Annuals grow and produce seeds, then die within a single year. Some annuals may survive a second year in warmer climates. Annual weeds are the easiest to kill.
  • Biennials live for two years. First year is vegetative development and the second year is flowering and seed development.
  • Perennials live from season to season and produce seeds annually.

Which weed control methods work best?

Weed control stops weeds from reaching a mature stage of growth when they could be harmful to your lawn or garden. It is done using manual techniques including soil cultivation, applying mulch, and herbicidal spray. The following are the most commonly used methods for weed control.

Weed control by hand

Manually removing unwanted weeds by hand or with lawn care tools is the most selective and environmentally friendly way to control weeds on your property. Here are some tips to keep in mind when using this method:

  • It is exponentially easier to remove them after a good rainfall.
  • Attack a weed as soon as it appears on your lawn.
  • Pull from the base, lifting out as much root as possible.
  • For larger weeds with extensive roots such as thistles or dandelions, use a garden fork, spike or slim trowel.

Weed control and prevention by herbicides

Manual weed removal isn't a practical method for large areas or places that are truly overgrown with weeds. For these situations the best approach may be to use herbicides. When applied correctly, herbicides are extremely effective at combating weed invasion and eliminating weeds. There are two types of herbicides:

  • Systemic herbicides enter the plant through the roots and leaves and treat the inside of the plant.
  • Contact herbicides kill from the outside and work their way in. By attacking the exposed parts of the plant, contact herbicides kill the weed by blocking the plant’s photosynthesis process.

Within these two categories, weed control herbicides may also be selective or nonselective:

  • Selective herbicides only kill some plants. These products remove weeds without killing the lawn around where the weeds grow.
  • Nonselective herbicides kill any and all plants they come into contact with. These are best used when preparing to establish a new lawn.

Herbicides are either pre-emergent or post-emergent and the timing of application is crucial.

  • Pre-emergent herbicides are designed for application before the targeted weed germinates. They are an effective preventative method for controlling weeds. Pre-emergent herbicides establish a chemical barrier that doesn't kill established plants. They are best used as a preventative measure. The protective barrier breaks down in six to eight weeks, so proper timing is needed for the herbicide to be effective. It is best to apply it early in the season. Caution is needed during application because pre-emergents may harm some garden plants and turf grasses.
  • Post-emergent herbicides attack weeds that are already growing. All contact weed killers are post-emergents. It is best to apply post-emergents later in the growing season, after weeds have begun to grow but before they seed.

Organic weed control

Organic weed control is safer for both family and pets. If you have children and pets that play on the lawn, then they are likely to come in contact with weed-killing chemicals. Dogs and cats chew grass and plants, and ingesting dangerous compounds can have long-term consequences. Some chemical herbicides can cause cancer.

A main ingredient in many chemical based herbicides is glyphosate. Glyphosate can cause many problems in the environment. This chemical weed control accumulates in the soil. Being around it for an extended time can result in cancer and even genetic mutations.

Problems can occur when these chemicals get into the groundwater. The herbicides seep into the soil and, eventually, get into the groundwater. The groundwater then flows to rivers, streams, and even into water reservoirs that we use for drinking and household use. Because of this, many customers opt for biosafe weed control.

Organic compounds used to kill weeds don't use this chemical, making them safer for your family and the environment. And you can enjoy your yard immediately after a weed control spray application. Organic treatments are also a good option when controlling weeds in your flower beds.

Another organic, non toxic option is weed control fabric. This is commonly used around the base of shrubs and trees. Weed control fabric prevents weed seeds buried in the soil beneath from sprouting. It also limits the need to use harmful herbicides for weed control.

How can I tell what type of weeds I have?

The best weed control for lawns depends on the type of weed that is growing. The following are the three most common weed types:

  • Broadleaf weeds
    • The leaves on this weed are broad and flat (not grassy or needle-like).
    • Examples include dandelion, clover, ground ivy (creeping Charlie), oxalis, chickweed, dollarweed, henbit, plantain, and thistle.
  • Grassy weeds
    • This weed resembles grass in the way it looks and grows, one leaf at a time. Leaves look like grass blades.
    • Examples include crabgrass, foxtail, annual bluegrass, and quackgrass.
  • Sedge weeds
    • This weed is generally taller than grass and has a triangular stem with leaves arranged in groups of three.
    • Examples include nutsedge, green kyllinga and purple nutsedge.
