With our professional weed control, Lawn Doctor of Scranton/Wilkes-Barre offers reliable solutions to this common lawn care issue. Invasive plants can do far more than damage the aesthetic beauty of your lawn. When weeds grow in your yard, they steal sunlight, nutrients, and moisture from your lawn ecosystem. With our expert service, we can protect your lawn from this issue and keep your grass healthy, beautiful, and full of the right nutrients.

Our Trusted Weed Control Options in Wilkes-Barre

We offer solutions to stop current and future weed growth around your yard. Our weed control includes:

  • Pre-emergent herbicide treatments. This is our proven method for stopping weeds in their early stages.
  • Post-emergent herbicide treatments. For those with weeds already taking over their lawn, we can apply our post-emergent treatment and clear up the issue.

DIY Weed Prevention with Our Expert Guidance

Weed prevention is an ongoing process, so we encourage every homeowner to develop good habits to reduce weeds in between our professional treatments. Here are our tips:

  • Mow once per week. A weekly mowing session will help to create a less hospitable environment for invasive plants. We suggest trimming your grass by about 1/3 each time you mow your lawn.
  • Monitor for soil compaction. Lawns that experience significant foot traffic often suffer from soil compaction. When your soil becomes too dense for air and water to pass through, this can create poor conditions throughout the ecosystem, which can lead to increased weed growth. To determine if your lawn is suffering from soil compaction, use a screwdriver to poke a hole in your soil. If the soil is firm and tough to penetrate, you need to call us to book a core aeration treatment.
