Here in the Tyler, TX, area, weeds can be a big problem for property owners. If these invasive plants invade your turf, they will not only drag down the curb appeal of your property, but also steal nutrients from your grass, making it weaker while the weeds grow stronger. If you want to achieve a weed-free lawn throughout the year, you need to utilize both pre- and post-emergent weed control treatments.
Pre-emergent treatments are designed to prevent newly germinated weeds from sprouting through the soil, while post-emergent treatments eliminate existing weeds. You should apply pre-emergent treatments in the late winter and fall to get a jump-start on controlling weeds, and you should apply post-emergent treatments throughout the rest of the year to tackle any existing weeds. Continue reading this blog to learn more about why you need to use both pre- and post-emergent weed control treatments throughout the year.
Pre-emergent weed control treatments are designed to stop weeds from sprouting.
When it comes to weed control, the best offense is a good defense. And that's exactly what pre-emergent weed control is for. This type of weed control treatment is designed to stop weeds from sprouting. When pre-emergent weed control is applied to the surface of a lawn, it creates a barrier on the soil that weeds can't penetrate. When a weed seed germinates under the soil, it will start to grow upwards. But if a pre-emergent weed control treatment was applied, the weed will be unable to sprout through the soil, and it will die underground, never seeing the light of day. This type of treatment needs to be applied at the right time because if a weed was already past a certain point in its life cycle when the treatment was applied, it won't stop that weed.
Post-emergent weed control treatments are effective at eliminating existing weeds.
While pre-emergent weed control treatments are very effective, they don't eliminate existing weeds or weeds that were already past a certain point in their life cycle when the treatment was applied. That's where post-emergent weed control treatments come in. These types of treatments are applied directly to existing weeds, and they will work their way down to the root system of the weeds and kill them.
A lot of post-emergent weed control treatments are effective at eliminating buttonweed, crabgrass, dollarweed, and more!
When should pre- and post-emergent weed control treatments be applied?
To achieve a weed-free lawn throughout the year, you'll want to use both pre- and post-emergent weed control treatments. When it comes to pre-emergent treatments, you should apply one treatment in the late winter, sometime between mid-January and mid-February. This will help to prevent spring weeds from taking over your lawn. You should also apply another pre-emergent treatment in the fall, sometime between September and mid-October. This treatment will help prevent winter weeds from sprouting on your lawn. While these treatments will be very helpful in controlling the weed population on your lawn, it's inevitable that weeds will still make their way onto your turf. To combat these weeds, you should apply multiple post-emergent treatments to your lawn throughout the rest of the year.
