The Best Form of Weed Control is a Beautiful Lawn

Weed control for your lawn can be more complicated that you might think. Weeds are any plants that are growing where you don’t want them in your yard. These are any plants other than your chosen species of turf grass. Weed control is not easy. There are many types of weeds with different types of reproductive cycles. The best method of weed control is to have a healthy, dense turf in your yard. When grass grows thick, rays of sunlight can’t reach the soil and weed seeds cannot germinate and get established.

Here are some common types of weeds you may discover in your lawn:

Weeds that complete their life cycle in one season (called annuals) can be stopped if you can interrupt their ability to make seeds. Other plants (biennials or perennials) require more than one season to complete their life cycle, and it can be more challenging to rid yourself of these types of weeds.

If you are not sure what type of grass might be best for your lawn, consult with a lawn care professional. Some grass needs full sun to thrive, while other types can do well in partial shade. There aren’t any types of grass that do well in full shade, so if you have areas like this, you may have to consider alternate groundcover to get rid of weeds.
