I thought this was a great time to discuss a few things that are pertinent this time of year in regards to your home environment and weed control. As you can see the weeds are really popping and during the day you are seeing that steady 'yellow' color on your drive to work or in your lawn.
Over the next 4-6 weeks will be the best time to start your weed control for the season. One of the questions I consistently get asked every spring is, "Can you guys control creeping charlie and violets? We can never get that under control ourselves or using a service."
Well, let me give you some good news, they are manageable to control! These tougher weeds grow with rhizomes (learn more here) that make it difficult to control. However, the right approach is using the right products. Proper fertilization with a very slow release fertilizer and continuing to spot treat the plants throughout the entire course of the season should suppress these difficult weeds quite well. For example, at Weed Man we are able to guarantee control of 85%+ of creeping charlie and violets and 99%+ of the rest of the weeds by the end of the first season.
