Sometimes the simplest lawn care tips can make an amateur landscaper’s life much easier. For example, did you know that some species of weeds have such deep root systems that the weeds will always grow back after you pull them out? While a gardener might yank the visible part out of the ground, the plant remains alive under the ground. Some people end up pulling the same exact plants out over and over again, which can be very time consuming and aggravating.
There are several lawn care tips on how to control weed growth. Some weeds, for example, can germinate at any time during the growing season. If you mow and till these types of weeds, you might end up spreading the seeds throughout the yard, worsening your weed problem.
Mowing the lawn regularly not only improves the appearance of a yard and but also is very healthy for the grass. You should not allow the grass to grow more than 50 percent higher than the level at which you plan to mow it. For example, if you mow the lawn down to two inches tall, do not allow it to grow beyond three inches high.
Here at Crabgrass Alert, we suggest our Agralawn Crabgrass Killer to combat unwanted crabgrass, chickweed, and other weeds. Whenever you apply this herbicide, be sure to activate the powder by following the instructions on the bottle. Another helpful tip is to check the weather before using Agralawn.
