The Battle Against Weeds in Commercial Lawn Care – Weed Control

Nothing quite detracts from a beautiful commercial landscape than a bunch of weeds popping up. It can give the appearance that you don’t care about your property and that it’s not well-tended to. The frustrating thing about most weeds is that they can spread like wildfire. If not addressed, what may have started as a few weeds here and there can quickly start to take over your commercial property. This hurts the overall look and appeal of your landscape.

Fortunately, there are solutions. You just want to be sure that you’re working with a company that is employing a multi-faceted approach to tackling weeds.

Weed Control Starts with a Lush Lawn

Most people think of weed control solely in terms of applying herbicides and knocking back weed growth. That’s obviously an important piece of the puzzle—but it’s not all of it. The truth is, the best defense against weeds on your commercial property begins with a thick, lush turf. A well-fertilized lawn will naturally crowd out weeds that try to invade.

So, how do you get a carpet-like lawn?

The answer to thicker grass is a comprehensive lawn care program that will give your lawn everything that it needs to thrive. At Bluegrass, we are backed by the support of Weed Man, an international lawn care expert that has a proven track record (and a proven process) for providing superior results.

In addition to a lawn care program that includes regular fertilization, having your commercial lawn aerated annually will also make a world of difference. Lawn aeration and overseeding can help fill in any bare patches on your lawn, which is where opportunistic weeds often try to creep in.

Keeping your lawn regularly aerated has other benefits as well. In fact, it will also improve the results of your fertilization process. By breaking up the hard, clay-like soil, fertilizer products will be able to reach further into the ground, making them much more effective. This is true for weed control products, too.

Incorporating a Weed Control Strategy

There’s no doubt that weed control products are also important in terms of getting rid of weeds on your commercial property. Because we partner with Weed Man, we have access to some of the very best products and treatment plans out there. There are many reasons why other companies fail to get weeds fully under control. One of the big ones is the fact that they don’t use targeted and specialized treatment approaches—they just put the same product down for every weed they come into contact with.

At Bluegrass, we employ a program that has it all—crabgrass control, broadleaf weed control, nutsedge treatment, and solutions for any other weed that your property may be battling.

Our timing is also key. After all, with successful weed control, timing really is everything—particularly when it comes to the use of pre-emergents, which are a lawn care product that will eliminate weeds in their earliest stage of growth. Pre-emergents are your first line of defense against troublesome weeds—but only when used properly. They have a limited window for when they’ll be effective.

Of course, post-emergents are also important as they’ll handle any breakthrough that occurs. A successful weed control plan will include spraying multiple times throughout the year in order to fully target all potential weeds. Once-and-done just isn’t enough to truly get tough weeds under control.
