How We Control Different Lawn Weed Varieties

Different weed varieties require different treatment approaches. Here is a closer look at the two main varieties of weeds and our strategy in keeping your lawn clear of them:

Broadleaf Weeds

Broadleaf weeds are generally easy to spot due to their characteristically large leaves, but they can also be tricky to deal with. To most effectively put an end to broadleaf weed invasions, we apply post-emergent treatments that will eradicate weeds that have already sprouted and keep new ones from popping up. Some of the most common broadleaf weed varieties include:

  • Chickweed
  • Red Sorrel
  • Dandelion
  • White Clover

Grassy Weeds

While broadleaf weeds are treated more easily with post-emergent products, grassy weeds are best treated with pre-emergent products to prevent them from breaching the surface in the first place. Here are just a few of the many grassy weed varieties to watch out for:

  • Goosegrass
  • Crabgrass
  • Nimblewill
  • Orchardgrass
