Stop Crabgrass before It Starts with Pre-emergent Weed Control
Cardinal Lawn Care: Taking Care of Lawns in Imperial, MO Since 2010
Have the forsythia bushes blossomed in your Imperial, MO neighborhood? If so, it’s time to apply pre-emergent weed control to stop crabgrass before it germinates.
Crabgrass is an annual, grassy weed. If left untreated, it can take over your lawn, choke out healthy lawn grass and make your yard look messy.
You can stop crabgrass before it germinates when Cardinal Lawn Care applies pre-emergent weed control.
In this blog, you’ll learn about pre-emergent weed control, its purpose and why you need your Imperial, MO lawn care service to apply it in early spring.
Pre-emergent Weed Control
It’s important to stop crabgrass before it germinates because…
- It makes your lawn look neglected
- It crowds out lawn grass
- It could take over your lawn.
When a lawn care technician applies pre-emergent weed control to your Imperial, MO property, the pre-emergent barricades crabgrass seeds from germinating above the soil line. In other words, the pre-emergent stops crabgrass seeds in their tracks.
Pre-emergent weed control doesn’t work on crabgrass or other annual weeds once they germinated. It also doesn’t stop other types of weeds, like dandelions that are broadleaf weeds.
The Secret to Less Lawn Weeds
There will be times when a weed or two will sneak into your Imperial lawn. But you can prevent a major weed invasion when your lawn is healthy.
What’s the secret to a healthy lawn?
A healthy lawn starts with healthy soil. Your Imperial lawn care company measures the health of your soil by taking plugs of it throughout your property to test them for missing nutrients and pH.
Your lawn care company also provides different lawn treatment plans throughout the season to encourage healthy yard grass. These treatment plans include
- Fertilizer treatments
- Weed control applications.
When you commit to a regular lawn care plan, you’ll have a healthy lawn that crowds out weeds.
