Whether you think of weeds like Ella Wheeler Wilcox did when she said, “A weed is but an unloved flower,” or lament them as Doug Larson did when he said, “A weed is a plant that has mastered every survival skill except for learning how to grow in rows,” the truth of the matter is you don’t want them in your lush, green lawn.

Weed Control

It might be tempting to let weeds enjoy themselves unrestricted since from the street a sea of green looks the same. However, if you forego weed control, they will spread and become even stronger, making their eradication more challenging. The weeds will kill off the grass and many are far from being comfortable underfoot, so your children may not appreciate it if you let them get out of hand.

It is important to go with professional weed control so that you do not use the wrong herbicides for the type of weeds you have or apply it incorrectly. Without the appropriate knowledge and experience, you could kill healthy plants and grasses doing more harm to your lawn than good. It is also important to have a plan in place that continually eliminates weeds before they can germinate and spread. If you go with a professional, you also avoid the need to store excess chemicals, which should be handled carefully to avoid accidental poisoning.
