Jan 16, 2023Weed Control

Ignoring winter pre-emergent weed control sets you up for a spring and summer filled with extra work. On top of the tending you’ll be doing in the garden, you’ll have to spend a good chunk of time managing weeds during the heavy growth season so they don’t overtake your yard. Invest in pre-emergent treatments now, and you’ll be able to spend your summer enjoying the great outdoors, as well as your beautiful yard.

Put An End To Annual Weeds Before They Start Growing

Seeing weeds in the yard isn’t just a nuisance. At first, you may consider them an occasional annoyance, but sooner than later you’ll see more of them and less of the green, lush lawn you’re after. Weeds are fast-growing plants capable of choking out your grass by absorbing the water and nutrients meant for your grass root system. The weeds will grow plentifully, and your grass will begin to struggle. Soon, the yard will be covered with brown, withered grass with rich, green weeds speckling your lawn.

There are a few ways to stop this progression. First, you can spot treat your lawn whenever you see a weed. Dig it out or spray it with pesticide. Unfortunately, weeds may need to grow for months before you can tell the difference between your grass and invasive growth. By then, you could have whole sections of yard needing treatment.

What if you learned about specialized products meant to stop the spread of pre-emergent weeds, preventing them from growing? Winter pre-emergent weed control solutions attack seeds before they’re active, and they’re safe for your lawn; so, you can apply them to the whole yard without causing damage.

Finding The Best Winter Pre-Emergent Weed Control Treatments For Your Lawn

When it comes to preventing weeds, consumers don’t always know the best products to look for or where to buy them. Garden centers tend to have solutions that are more powerful than those sold in box stores. Read labels carefully so you know they’re appropriate for the types of weeds you’re dealing with, as well as the species of grass in your yard.

The lawn care pros recommend products containing the following:

  • Benefin
  • Bensulide
  • Oryzalin
  • Pendimethalin
  • Dithiopyr
  • Pro Diamine

Professional winter pre-emergent weed control solutions provide you with powerful anti-weed agents that aren’t available for sale to the public. Trained technicians have the proper equipment and techniques needed to use stronger products. Think Green Lawn Care will recommend the perfect products for your landscaping needs, and we’ll take care of the application too.

Timing Winter Pre-Emergent Weed Control Treatments

When it comes to weed control, timing is everything. Waiting until after seeds germinate will make your job tougher than it has to be. Winter pre-emergent weed control treatments will have to be applied before the ground temperatures rise past 50 degrees. In Georgia, this often happens by March 1st; so, don’t delay.
