Why Control Weeds in Your Lawn?
At Lawn Doctor of Boston, we know that when weeds get out of control, they do more than take away from your lawn’s beauty. They also suck up key nutrients and water, weakening your lawn in the process. When this happens, weeds spread, causing more damage throughout your lawn and landscape. That’s why it’s so important to get them under control quickly. But first, you have to know the types of weeds you’re dealing with.
In the U.S., there are generally two weed types that invade lawns: broadleaf and grassy. Broadleaf weeds are easy to spot with their wider leaves and include dandelion, wild violet, and clover. Grassy weeds, such as crabgrass, can be harder to recognize since they look like actual grass. Not only that, but they thrive under the same conditions as your lawn. That means when you properly care for your lawn, it can also create favorable conditions for these weeds as well.
Both broadleaf and grassy weeds can also have varying lifespans. Annuals weeds, which typically get tracked into your lawn in seed form by birds or the wind, can grow multiple times in one year. Perennials, on the other hand, come back year after year and can be more challenging to control because they establish strong roots in your lawn.
On top of that, weeds can be either cool-season or warm-season varieties. This indicates the time of the year they like to grow in. When you’re treating your lawn, it’s important to take growing season into account for your efforts to be as effective as possible.
