Keeping your lawn looking great is an important part of maintaining your home’s curb appeal, and a big part of that upkeep is fighting incoming weeds.

How Our Technicians Control Different Types of Weeds in Stow Area Lawns
The list of different species of weeds is incredibly long. However, to accurately sum up a few key points, weeds can be designated into two distinct groups: grassy weeds and broadleaf weeds. Here is a little more on these groups and a closer look at how our team at Lawn Doctor of Strongsville-Stow treats them:
Grassy Weeds vs. Broadleaf Weeds
Grassy weeds are often characterized by their likeness to the turf covering your lawn, as well as their ability to grow in similar conditions. Many homeowners don’t notice these weeds until they’ve already developed established stem systems, which can make them hard to remove. At Lawn Doctor of Strongsville-Stow, we target these stems with our pre-emergent lawn weed control treatments to completely eradicate grassy weeds and prevent them from regenerating later on in the season.
Broadleaf weeds, including dandelion and chickweed, are known for their bulky and resilient composition. Getting these plants out of your lawn can require heavy-duty products, and many of these products can harm your lawn if not applied with the utmost accuracy. With our cutting-edge broadleaf control treatments, we remove these weeds without putting the health of your lawn’s grass and other plants at risk.
Perennial vs. Annual Germination
Keeping up with weeds’ germination schedules can be a challenge in and of itself. Annual weeds can sprout multiple times throughout a single year, and perennial weeds can develop complex root networks that keep them coming back through multiple years. During your lawn evaluation, we’ll develop the treatment schedule to address your lawn’s distinct weed populations, whether it contains perennial weeds, annual weeds, or both.
