Now that the warmer weather is here and the plants are springing to life, it’s time to consider weed control options for your pastures and lawns. Weeds are breaking through the soil and depriving your true grass of sunlight & nutrients. There are a few options to keep weeds under control in your lawn and pastures.
Weed Management Options:
- Remove weeds by hand
- Use organics like corn gluten meal, pre or post herbicide
- Use synthetic herbicides
- Leave weeds alone & continue to mow over
Annual & Perennial Weeds
Perennial weeds, “the reoccurring weed”, should be dug up completely since they can lay dormant and return the following spring from a root that survived the winter. Annual weeds cultivate from seeds from the previous growing season and only have one life cycle, therefore a pre or post herbicide is best to prevent their development. Best way to keep your lawn looking green is to not let these weeds take control in the first place. Use pre-emergent herbicide early spring and it will protect your lawn all summer. If you prefer organics, corn gluten meal is perfect BEFORE the weeds emerge. If you missed early spring, any 2-4-D product will help you control those pesky weeds from taking control of your green & lush lawn.
