Ways To Control Lawn Weeds

Flowering Weeds

Early spring is the time to add the hormone type weed killers which work on the "root" of the weeds.

Why do you want to get rid of weeds when you can just mow them down? Because weeds steal plant nutrients that you are feeding to the grass and compete for the root and growing space needed especially for the creeping grasses.

Some weeds while being mown back simply adapt to growing more spread out than up and compete for more room in that manner. Mowing a "weedy" grass the texture usually will appear uneven and choppy. Weeds seed out every year and the seeds are just waiting for their chance to germinate and the product must be in the ground before the full development of the plant for the best success before you see the weeds. "Yes Virginia" you can still apply weed killers after you see the weeds but some of them will have already seeded for the next year so early prevention may save money in the long run and the extra time.

Weeds Are Just Normal Plants

Weeds are just regular plants who are out of place. What is a weed for one person or crop area, is considered a valuable plant to another person. For instance, Johnson grass is considered a hard to kill weed, but some farms actually plant it for its foraging value. Some weeds are pretty like the flowerings weeds in the picture above.

Controlling Weeds Naturally - With Your Lawn Mower

In some grasses, especially the warm season grasses... Over time as your lawn grows and spreads out - the grass itself can choke out the weeds. You can assist with this by keeping your lawn area mowed regular and at the correct mowing height. Mowing too low or too high can result in more weed growth in your lawn.

Mowing at the proper height is one of the best weed control practices you can use, especially good for the environment if you use a reel mower. Hand pulling of weeds or pulling using a crabgrass / weed removal tool is also a natural control method. This works well for weeds such as crabgrass are so persistent in growth, it is hard to kill once the seed germinate. --- you have to break the seeding cycle to reduce the problem of crabgrass. Plus weather is a big factor. I've seen grass areas with no crabgrass one year and lots another.

Steps To Reduce Weeds In Your Lawn

Weeds can be controlled much better before you plant your grass... but for existing lawns a couple of things can help to reduce weed problems.

  1. Correct mowing... The right height for your grass helps to shade weeds out of existence.

  2. Mowing frequency.... By mowing both often and regular, you remove the flowing seed parts of many weeds thus making it harder for them to seed their next crop.

  3. Soils play a factor in weed control - Dry, wet and compacted soils all encourage weed growth because your grass usually struggles under these conditions. A weakened turf grass allows for the weeds to grow.

  4. Soil fertility is also a factor. Weeds love poor, under-fertilized soils. While Turfgrasses require a certain amount of nutrients for best growth.

  5. Practicing good lawn maintenance practices is the best weed control policy you can undertake.
