Why Weed Control Matters if You Want a Healthy Lawn
Weeds don’t need much to grow; just a little space, some key nutrients and direct light. And once they get established, they can quickly spread, damaging your lawn in the process. That’s why, at Lawn Doctor of Orange County NY, we always recommend having a lawn weed control plan in place – so you can stop weeds before they have a chance to develop. But first, for any efforts to be effective, you need to know which weeds you’re up against.
Generally, in the U.S., weeds are either broadleaf or grassy. Broadleaf weeds have a wider, flat leaf and include purslane, chickweed, henbit and clover. Some, like dandelion and wild violet, even flower. Grassy weeds tend to resemble grass, with the most common being crabgrass. They also grow under the same conditions as grass. That means any lawn care you deliver could also be benefiting grassy weeds, as well.
In addition to being broadleaf or grassy, weeds can be annual or perennial. Weeds that are annual are typically tracked into lawns as seeds by birds or the wind. They can grow in several times over the duration of one year. Perennials, conversely, typically last throughout many seasons. And if you don’t treat them, they can become more difficult to control as they spread and establish themselves in your lawn.
Weeds can also grow in during different seasons. For instance, cool-season weeds grow best in the cooler temperatures of fall through spring. Warm-season weeds instead develop during spring and summer.
