If you desire to have a great-looking lawn then you must get rid of all the invasive weeds that are growing alongside the grass. This way, all you will have, is a plain field of evenly cut grass, which looks neat, tidy, and beautiful. Nevertheless, taking care of the weed is much harder than it may seem.
Weeds such as crabgrass and clover are likely to disrupt the overall look of your law. Not to mention, they also consume the nutrition from the soil, resulting in the grass wilting and dying. This is why weeding or removal of weeds is an important part of lawn maintenance.
Different Weed Control Methods
Controlling weeds encompass many different kinds of methods. You can get rid of them using chemical products, and physically pluck them out. Also, you can also find methods that circle cultural and biological weed control procedures. Most people like to resort to chemical products that you can find at any store.
Applying this product involves using a pump sprayer or any other type of spray. Once you settle on your favorable weed killer product, you can move on to the spraying process. Use a spray that provides you a fine spread and mist for your chemical. This helps you distribute the chemical application evenly across your whole lawn.
Another important thing to take into account is that you have to spray the weeds only once. Over spraying the weeds is not advisable as it can result in killing the grass alongside the weeds. This is why you must only apply a fine layer of the chemical solution to the weeds.
After spraying the lawn, read the product label to find out about the toxicity of the solution, so that you can have a better idea of when you can allow your pets and children to enter the lawn. Before you can safely enter the lawn, make sure that the chemical solution has dried off.
What to Expect
Once you have sprayed the solution, you might have to wait for about a week or so and observe the weed conditions of the lawn. In the best-case scenario, you will find that the weed in the lawn is starting to turn white. This whitening means that they are dying, and once they do, the grass will start to fill up the dry patches on your lawn.
