How to Get Control of Your Lawn: Weed Control

Controlling weeds is high on every homeowner’s to-do list, and it may be easier than you think. Practicing proper mowing, watering, and fertilizing will actually prevent a lot of weed problems because healthy lawns leave little room for weeds.

Here are a couple of tips when dealing with weeds in your yard:

Grassy weeds (such as crabgrass) are controlled with pre-emergent herbicides applied in early spring like a blooming forsythia bush.

Broadleaf weeds (like dandelions) are controlled with a contact herbicide (either granular or liquid) in early spring, but for the best result, use it in fall after they have germinated but are still small.
