Treating For Weeds In The Fall
November 17, 2017
As fall marches on and we soldier through another hurricane season, there's a lot of work to be done along the Treasure Coast. With the weather getting cooler and the rainy season winding down, fall is typically the time when you want to start looking at lawn repair and maintenance, a relatively small task that can make a big difference in the long run. From Vero Beach to Stuart we love to see the contrast of lush green lawns and sandy beaches, but we also know that those lawns take work. South Florida is home to some really nasty weeds, which if left unchecked can quickly overtake a lawn.
Fall applications can be effective because there is often less rain, allowing treatments more time to take effect before being diluted and washed away. For weeds, what you're really doing for your lawn is keeping out the competition. All plants compete for nutrients, and when fighting weed intrusion your task is twofold, to weaken the weeds' ability to grow and spread, and to strengthen your grass so that it can keep up. Preventative treatments, along with fertilization, can go a long way to keeping weeds off your lawn in the first place, and spot treatments generally work well at targeting weeds that have already arrived.
At Nozzle Nolen, we know how to take the fight to Treasure Coast weeds. Weed prevention is a long-term process, with regular assessment needed and preventative treatments often advised. Removal of weeds can be even trickier, as some grassy weeds are difficult to treat without hurting your turfgrass, and total elimination of weeds can take time if they've had a chance to spread and lay roots or grow tubers. We perform a thorough inspection to determine just what type of weeds your lawn is dealing with, and will take a systematic approach to eliminating the intruders while leaving your lawn free to grow and flourish. If you're up in Vero Beach and dollar weed is running rampant on your lawn, we can help you. Or if you see crabgrass running rampant in your neighborhood in Stuart or Jupiter, and you want to ensure it stays off your lawn, we've got you covered. Take full advantage of the fall weather this year, and consider helping your lawn to do the same. Give us a call today to learn more about our lawn care solutions.
