Spring has finally begun in Winona, MN – just in time for summer! That means lawns have finally emerged from their snowy prisons. The grass is greening in full force, which is great news for lawn care. But along with that grass may come a few unwelcomed weeds. Luckily, the weed control and lawn care services experts with Maier Tree and Lawn have the tools and know-how to keep your grass weed-free this spring so your lawn can flourish.
Though many "weeds" are simply local native types of vegetation, they can look messy, steal nutrients from healthy grass, and overtake a lawn when left unattended. Generally speaking, the word weed refers to any plant that grows where it isn't wanted. Weeds are highly aggressive plants that are very interested in taking over as much of your lawn as they like. Because of this, weed control is an important part of any effective lawn care service. Leaving them to their own devices can cause trouble not only for your own lawn, but for the entire local ecosystem in your neighborhood.
Part of the lawn care process is deciding when, how, and how much to practice weed control. Too many chemicals, powders, and sprays can result in a patchy, damaged lawn. Too little too late, however, can trigger a nasty weed infestation. Making this judgment call on proper lawn care and weed control can be difficult for new and experienced homeowners. Weed control can be erratic and inconsistent, which is why a professional touch always comes in handy.
Weed control, when done by lawn care professionals, can often be bundled with other forms of lawn care to maximize the effectiveness of the weed control solution. A trained lawn care professional may also be able to assist with fertilizing, aeration, and seeding along with the weed control process. This way, each aspect of lawn care has a chance to do its job properly.
