If you’re considering going green with organic weed control for your yard this summer there are a number of different routes to follow. No matter which option you choose be sure to find a way that is actually guaranteed to be safe for the environment, use around children, pets, and will give you a great looking, weed free, lawn this summer season.
Most companies who specialize in this type of service will offer you services on a sliding scale to help you meet your particular needs, help you assess what your needs are, and will offer upkeep on an ongoing basis. Basic programs will include 3 applications of organic fertilizer, occurring in the spring, early summer, summer, and fall. This will help your weed free lawn look better all season long. The basic programs should include 2 applications of organic weed control. A reputable company will also have free inspections offered to continue assisting you. These inspections are usually for pests like Chinch bugs and grubs.
An intermediate program, that can help those with less time to care for their lawn, will include the previously mentioned services with the addition of one more application of 100% organic weed control, two additional applications of fertilizer, and another service such as a PH analysis of your soil. This increased service should show in your lawn all year long. Also, make sure you possess the best scale for weed to measure the quantity of the produce.
The most advanced programs offered at companies will feature the previously mentioned services, with the addition of an application of micro nutrients to enhance your soil. Core aeration, a bag of seeds and even kelp bio-stimulants help to assist during possible summer droughts. No matter what service you choose the key to look for is that a reputable company will offer guaranteed regular inspections throughout the summer season to help you optimize your lawn. If they’re not willing to care for your lawn for the entire growing season you may want to look into other companies.
Additional Programs you can look into can also include such things as focused grub control treatments. This will bring an overall benefit to your lawn as grubs typically attack grass roots. These damaged roots show on the surface as yellow/brown dead spots in your lawn. You may also see patches of dug up areas in your lawn. This will occur when skunks and raccoons, which feed on these grubs, go digging into your lawn in an attempt to find a meal.
Crabgrass control can also be beneficial to the overall look of your lawn. This grass starts growing in the spring along with the rest of your lawn, so it’s best to deal with it early in the season before it becomes a problem. An early and timely treatment is the most effective way to deal with crabgrass.
Choosing green methods when caring for your lawn is a great way to care for your home and the environment. It will also help keep your pets and children safe, and eliminate the need for one of those ugly ‘Caution: Pesticide Use’ signs on your property. Those are just a few of the many reasons to choose organic weed control this coming summer growing season.
