Yard Work Tips: Weeding
Weeds are a gardeners’ biggest nightmare. These pesky little plants can suffocate your flowers and spread like, well, like weeds. These invaders are often so pervasive that it seems the only place to find a green lawn free of blemishes is in home magazines and championship golf courses. However, creating a weed-free yard is not impossible. Here are three ways you can weed out those intruders and cultivate a luscious and healthy green lawn at home.
Crowd ‘em Out
The first step to killing weeds is simply by crowding them out. Most yard weeds will grow where they can find space and sunlight. If you grow a healthy lawn, you will naturally crowd out weeds and prevent them from springing up in the first place.
Get Your Hands Dirty
Sometimes you have to get your hands dirty when dealing with weeds. Don’t be afraid to clip them down, and even dig them out. Just be careful not to disrupt the soil too much as this can shed light on previously dormant weed seeds, giving rise to a new generation of weeds in your lawn.
If nothing else works, you can resort to herbicides. Be careful to use an herbicide that will not harm your other plants and lawn while still effectively targeting your weeds.
