WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO GET RID OF WEEDS PERMANENTLY?

Weeds aren’t considered nuisances, but they are plants, just like grass, flowers, or shrubs. If we allow them to grow, they will be just as prolific as our favorite herbs.

YARD MAINTENANCE: HOW TO RID A LAWN FULL OF WEEDS

Here are four lawn care Conway SC steps to stop weeds from overturning your turf.

To identify the weeds in your lawn, you should examine it. Because treatments are designed to target specific weeds you will need to identify the problem before purchasing products.

You should choose a treatment that is appropriate for both the type and stage of the weeds. Pre-emergents are required if you want to target weeds before they grow. A post-emergent is recommended for established weeds.

Follow the instructions carefully to kill the weeds. To be safe, you should read the bag at least three more times.

To keep your lawn weed free, you should follow a regular lawn maintenance program.

  • Seed your lawn in the fall and aerate as needed
  • Before winter, give your turf one final mow and fertilization treatment.
  • Pre-emergent is a great way to start the spring. You can also hand pick any lingering plants.
  • Regularly mow your lawn in spring and summer. Be sure to not remove more than one third of the grass at once.

CAN I GET RID OF WEEDS IN A LAWN NATURALLY?

Yes. It may take longer and more effort. It is an easy way to eliminate weeds by spraying vinegar directly on them. It kills the weeds and dries the leaves.

Pick vinegar with more than 5 percent of acetic acid. You can find vinegar with 10-20 percent acetic acid at a local home improvement store rather than the supermarket.

USDA research has shown that spraying this can kill between 80 and 100 percent of top-growing weeds.

This works best when there are only a few weeds in the lawn. You should use a safer, more effective herbicide for larger areas.
