Our weed control services are part of our fertilization package offered to residents in Lewis Center, Delaware, Powell, and Galena,OH.
Broadleaf weeds are tackled by our pre-emergent and post-emergent weed control treatments, which are typically administered between spring and fall.
There are invasive weed species all around the areas of Lewis Center, Delaware, Powell, and Galena, OH that creep into your lawn and cause both aesthetic and physical problems for the grass of your property. Getting a handle on weeds before they get out of control is important for the health of your grass.
We offer pre-emergent for Crabgrass and post-emergent weed control treatments to tackle a variety of broadleaf weeds. Our weed control treatments are part of our packaged fertilization applications and performed throughout the course of the year, between spring and fall.
Pre-Emergent & Post-Emergent Herbicides & Why They Are Used
Spring is the best time for preventative weed control. During this time, before the temperatures in your soil warm up too much, we apply pre-emergent weed control. Pre-emergent herbicides are intended to be used prior to weed growth. They kill the seed before germination can happen, which prevents the weeds from growing.
We apply Post-emergent weed control throughout the rest of your fertilization applications as needed. Post-emergent herbicides are intended for weeds that have already germinated and need to be killed and contained. The reason we use pre-emergent and post-emergent weed control applications is that pre-emergent preventative weed control only lasts around 8-12 weeks. From that point forward, your post-emergent herbicides will keep any emerging weeds under control.
Regular fertilization applications also help keep weeds at bay! By continually thickening and strengthening your lawn with fertilizer, the grassroots crowd together and allow little room for weeds to germinate and grow.

Other common weed species that can be found across Ohio include Black Medic, Oxalis, Buckhorn Plantain, and Wild Violet
The Effect Weeds Have on Your Grass & Landscaping Plants
Weeds are aggressive and invasive plants that inhibit the ability of your grass or landscaping plants to grow properly. When weeds take over, they rob your soil of nutrients and water. They also absorb those nutrients much faster than your grass does.
When weeds are allowed to grow, they can take over an area quickly and make it difficult for that area to recover. Additionally, some weed species are toxic and pollute the air by releasing noxious gasses.
The bottom line...you want to get the weeds off your property or stop them from growing, before they have a chance to spread. You do not want the eyesore of weeds sprouting and taking over your lawn!
