One of the primary goals of lawn care is to defend against potential weed infestation. Weeds move in and propagate, stealing resources and nutrients meant for your grass. One singular dandelion weed can produce up to 15,000 seeds, so it is easy to see how weeds can spread, expanding rapidly and taking over your lawn in no time at all.
The best defense in combating weed infestation is to grow a thick and healthy lawn. By growing a dense, healthful lawn, it stuffs out the room that weeds need to move in and take root. As part of a regular lawn maintenance plan, it is important to make sure you are fertilizing regularly while maintaining an appropriate amount of water in the soil. Dry soil can it make it easier for weeds to take root. Lastly, by keeping a higher level of grass, you can help weeds from reaching the weed seedlings.
If you begin to see weed stems creeping into your yard, it is important to be proactive in ridding yourself of them as soon as possible. Hand weeding a lawn when the weeds are still in their beginning phases and haven’t begun to seed can be an efficient way of stopping lawn weeds.
