It is time to work on “summer weeds”

Due to our warm winter, “summer weeds” are already starting to appear. You may have noticed many plants already budding out ahead of their normal schedule. 

Right now, dormant weed seeds in your lawn are waiting to grow. Thanks to the ways weeds have evolved, they’ll germinate and start growing before your grass does!

Crabgrass

In Mississippi and Tennessee, Crabgrass is our number one summer weed, typically germinating in mid-March. That’s why it’s important to consider an application of pre-emergent now.

Pre-emergent

Pre-emergents don’t kill established plants or weeds, they prevent summer weeds from growing. Pre-emergents form the backbone of most weed control systems. But pre-emerge isn’t the “end all be all” solution. The Lawn360 Program at Lawn and Pest Solutions takes care of pre-emerge, post-emerge, lawn fertilization, spot-treating, and more.

Timing is everything

If you are applying a quality, professional grade pre-emergent, there is a window of opportunity. We have entered that window of opportunity. Now is to the time to apply the products to achieve the desired results.

Now is also the time to apply treatment to rid your lawn of existing “summer weeds.” Look for dandelions, onions, goosegrass, dove weed, and dallisgrass to pop up and handle them swiftly!

DIY or maybe not.

Controlling weeds is a matter of timing and applying the right amount of the right treatment. Everyone has experienced some sort of DIY fail. For some, the DIY project we took on ended up costing more money and causing more frustration.

When is the time to spray for summer weeds?

Is it time for you to head to then local home improvement store and buy all of your chemicals? Is it time to do research and figure out all of the recipes for your mixes? Is it time to rummage around in your shed and find that old sprayer? Is it time to spray for summer weeds?

Yes. And no.

It is time to call Lawn and Pest Solutions and let the experts do the spraying. Timing is everything. It IS time to spray for summer weeds before they emerge. Weeds like goosegrass, doveweed and dallisgrass are beginning to germinate a few inches down in the warming soil. You don’t have to watch very far into the video links to those weeds to feel overwhelmed about doing it yourself.

Now is the time, and timing is everything.  

Our licensed lawn technicians apply split applications of pre-emergent (weed preventer) to give your lawn the best results. Now is NOT the time for fertilizer, it’s too early! However, our lawn techs DO know when the time is right.

What are you waiting for?

The correct product at the correct rate at the correct time is what you get with a professional. Many of us have learned our lesson with DIY projects. Whether it’s getting orange hair from a box of blonde at the discount store or burning a spot in our lawn with a “not quite right” mixture of fertilizer or weed spray. 

Putting a large investment like your lawn and landscape into the hands of a professional is a wise thing to do. If you like mixing up chemicals and spraying them yourself, you’ve got to know there is more than a little chance of not getting it quite right. Don’t risk it this spring with your lawn. Give us a call at Lawn and Pest Solutions and let the folks who know what they are doing handle this job for you. Our technicians cover Mississippi and Tennessee and can handle your lawn issues like the professionals that they are.
