How Our Team Controls Different Types of Weeds in York Area Lawns
There is a long list of different weed varieties, and addressing each of them is the key to effective lawn weed control. Here is a closer look at the different types of weeds, as well as a brief overview of how our technicians at Lawn Doctor of Southeast York-Spring Grove address them:
Broadleaf Weeds vs. Grassy Weeds
Broadleaf weeds and grassy weeds are the two main categories of weeds that pop up in the York area, and their different characteristics require designated treatments to maximize results. Broadleaf weeds like dandelion and clover often have bulky, flowering plants that are resilient to many cookie-cutter lawn weed control treatments. At Lawn Doctor of Southeast York-Spring Grove, we make short work of these pesky weeds without harming your grass or soil with our advanced broadleaf weed control treatments.
Grassy weeds, including ryegrass and crabgrass, are most often characterized by their underground stems, which can make them a challenge to fully remove. Our team uses cutting-edge pre-emergent weed control treatments to target the stems of grassy weeds, completely eradicating the plants and keeping them from regenerating later on in the year.
Annual Weeds vs. Perennial Weeds
Different weeds not only have a different physical composition, but also different germination schedules. Annual weeds are usually brought in by birds or animals and, although they can sprout many times in a single season, have a lifespan limited to about a year. On the other hand, perennial weeds can develop dense root networks and keep appearing season-after-season. During your free lawn evaluation, we’ll take note of the different weeds in your yard to ensure complete protection and a weed-free lawn through the seasons.
