Here in Oregon, weeds can be a big problem for property owners. If these invasive plants take over your lawn, they can drag down the overall curb appeal of your property and steal nutrients and other resources from your grass. If you're looking for a way to permanently keep weeds off of your lawn, you'll want to invest in pre-emergent weed control treatments. These types of treatments are designed to prevent weeds from sprouting on your lawn in the first place. You should apply these types of treatments to your lawn at least once in the spring and once in the fall, but you can go the extra mile for your lawn by applying a treatment in the summer too! However, it's important to stay consistent with pre-emergent weed control treatments to achieve a relatively weed-free lawn!
The best way to achieve a weed-free lawn is by investing in pre-emergent weed control treatments.
If you're looking to permanently keep weeds off of your lawn, you'll want to invest in pre-emergent weed control treatments. These types of treatments are applied to your lawn, and they will create a barrier in the soil. When weeds germinate underneath the soil, they will grow upwards and come into contact with the barrier, which they will not be able to penetrate, causing them to die underground. Because this type of treatment will prevent weeds from sprouting, they help you maintain a weed-free lawn because they never get the chance to infest it in the first place!
To help your lawn thrive, you should schedule fertilization treatments in conjunction with pre-emergent weed control treatments.
How often should you apply pre-emergent weed control treatments to your lawn?
Now that you know that pre-emergent weed control treatments can help you permanently keep weeds off of your lawn, the next thing that you'll need to know is how often these treatments should be applied. To start the year off, you'll want to apply a pre-emergent weed control treatment to your lawn in the spring to prevent weeds from popping up. You'll also want to apply another treatment in the fall to get ahead of any winter weeds. While the spring and fall are the two most important times of the year to apply pre-emergent weed control treatments here in Oregon, you can go the extra mile for your lawn by applying an additional treatment in the summer.
To permanently achieve a weed-free lawn, you need to stay consistent with pre-emergent weed control treatments.
While pre-emergent weed control treatments can provide short-term protection from weeds, you can help to permanently keep them off of your lawn by staying consistent with these treatments for years. If you apply these weed control treatments to your lawn in at least the spring and fall every year, for a minimum of 2 years, you can expect your lawn to be relatively weed free! However, if you get complacent and stop investing in these treatments, it's likely that weeds will start popping back up on your lawn again!
