Weed Prevention for Utah Soil

lawn weedsHere at Stewart’s, we understand that it isn’t enough to simply kill the weeds that have invaded your lawn. Even when you kill current weed growth, you still have to worry about those seeds that come to your lawn by way of wind, shoes, birds, and more. Therefore, high quality, comprehensive lawn care takes future weed growth into account and includes measures that will stop that weed growth from the start.

Here is a look at how weed prevention works and how we at Stewart’s can help you prevent weed growth in your Utah lawn.

How weed prevention works

There are a variety of techniques that can work together to prevent weed growth in your lawn. First, you must cultivate strong, healthy grass and mow that grass properly. Strong, properly mowed grass prevents weed growth by shading the soil and keeping the sun and heat from reaching the weed seeds. In addition, you must apply pre-emergent weed killer to your lawn earlier on in the spring. This will stop weed seeds before they germinate. Finally, you must make it a regular practice to control weeds with effective weed control products any time they do sprout up in your lawn. With the right lawn care techniques, your need to apply weed control product will diminish over time.
