Weeds can be in the eye of the beholder at times, but for the most can choke plants and make concrete cracks look overgrown and unattractive. Many people just pull them up, but you can also help prevent them if you take the smart approach of addressing the problems before they start. ProActive Landscaping is happy to teach you how to identify common types of grass, how to treat them and when’s the best time to do so.
The Usual Suspects
The two main types are appropriately named as grass and broadleaf weeds. Large crabgrass is typically found in gardens or landscape areas and has tiny hairs covering it and a light green color. Smooth crabgrass is typically found in turf with no hairs (but still light green in color.) Goose grass has white stems while barnyard grass has red stems. Broadleaf weeds will have spread-out veins whereas foxtail grass has spiky leaves.
Weeds are typically something you want to stop before they start, and the best way to do that is to have a properly maintained space. Landscaping services can help you pick the right type of grass for your yard if you’re seeding, and then perform proper upkeep through fertilizer, mowing and watering. There are a lot of different factors which keep lawns beautiful, and the lawn care experts in Broken Arrow know them all inside and out.
When to Treat
If you have weeds already, you’ll need to pull them up. Once you identify them, you can pick out a weed control product that you can place on your lawn before the weeds come back. Early spring, fall or winter can all be times to treat, depending on your geographical location and climate.
