There is nothing as aggravating as mowing your yard, edging it nicely, pruning your trees and then waking up the very next morning to see dandelions all over the lawn. Dandelions are a very common weed. They don’t go away without a fight. Dandelions can grow several inches overnight and seem to spread as quickly as rabbits breed.
Other common threats to lawns are things like crabgrass or parasites that get started, like grub worms. Keeping up with a lawn is, frankly, a lot of serious work. Firstly, maintaining a lawn is done during the hottest months of the year. Not everyone is overly tolerant of heat. If you live in a humid climate, the summer heat can be brutal. Getting outside, spreading seed, lawn feed, fertilizers, bug treatment, and everything else that goes along with creating a perfect lawn is impossible for some people.
If you have pets, it is essential that you plant hearty types of grass, plants that aren’t poisonous, and resilient. Lawn weed control can be essential for you so that your beloved pets are not exposed to something that could make them violently ill, or worse.
Calling in experts to handle your lawn care isn’t a shameful thing. Some people who were raised in the bygone era might feel that it is frivolous to hire someone to take care of the lawn. People today have far less time than they used to. There are also a lot more issues with weeds and lawn care than were even known twenty or thirty years ago. As all things do, weed control technology has changed. The types of chemicals that are used have changed completely; some things due to new environmental regulations.
It isn’t enough to just want your lawn to be lovely and for your home to have curb appeal, it can have an impact on the value of your home. The way your lawn is maintained can also determine just how well you and your neighbors will get along with each other. No one wants to live next to a yard that is full of unsightly weeds.
Some home owners’ associations (HOAs)will fine you if you do not take care of weeds in your yard, as well as keeping your lawn mowed on a regular basis. Some lawn care companies will spray for weeds and do your regular lawn maintenance, such as mowing and picking up leaves and clippings. Other companies specialize in one or the other. If you have grubs in your lawn, you aren’t going to have nice grass. You’ll need to call pest control help. If you have weeds, like ragweed or dandelions, trying to sprout up all over the place, then you will need to call a company that specializes in spraying for weeds.
There are plenty of companies who specialize in weed control and you will probably find that the cost isn’t bad in comparison to purchasing chemicals and trying to do the job yourself. In fact, when you aren’t sure what chemical will work on which weeds, you may find that you can save money by going to a professional service.
