Spot spray broadleaf weeds.
Broadleaf weeds are a common problem in lawns during the winter months. Weeds like dandelions, thistles and chickweed are likely to show up in the garden.The best time to spot treat broadleaf weeds is after the first frost. You can treat the weeds with a spot treatment, but keep in mind that you shouldn’t mix broadleaf weed killers with other weed killers.
Use mulch in your flower beds.
Mulch is a great way to prevent weeds from popping up in your flower beds. Mulch is organic material that can be used in gardens to cover the ground. Any type of mulch will work, as long as it’s a porous material that will allow water to pass through and keep the soil moist. In addition to preventing weeds from sprouting up, mulch also keeps your flowers looking fresher longer. This is because it provides a layer of protection between the soil and the sun. Mulch can also help reduce moisture levels in the soil which in turn, will prevent the emergence of weeds.
Use pre-emergent weed control to stop weeds before they start.
In the winter it’s a good idea to put down pre-emergent weed control if you have any concerns about weeds developing in your lawn. Weed killers that are pre-emergent will kill the weeds before they have a chance to spread their seeds. If you wait until the weeds have grown and established, you are fighting an uphill battle.
With winter weed control, your lawn will look healthy and green all year long. Legacy Lawn Care can help you with winter weed control to keep your lawn looking great all year long.
