Weeds should be kept off your lawn because they not only drag down the curb appeal of your property, but they can also steal nutrients and other resources from your grass, making it weaker while the weeds grow stronger. To keep your property weed-free throughout the year, you'll need to invest in weed control treatments and apply them at the appropriate times when they will be the most effective. If you have fescue grass in Georgia, the ideal weed control schedule includes a combination of pre-emergent and post-emergent weed control treatments in the winter, spring, summer, and fall seasons. These weed control treatments will help make sure your lawn is free of pesky weeds throughout the year!
Apply pre- and post-emergent weed control to your fescue grass in the late winter.
If you have fescue grass, you'll want to apply both pre- and post-emergent weed control treatments to your lawn in the late winter. A pre-emergent treatment will ensure no new weeds will be able to sprout through the soil for the rest of the winter. Applying post-emergent weed control in the late winter will get rid of any weeds already present, so you won't have to worry about a lawn covered in weeds come spring.
Use both pre-and post-emergent weed control in the spring.
Spring is the season of growth not only for your fescue grass and flowers, but for weeds too! To get a head start on weed prevention, you should apply pre-emergent weed control treatments in the early spring. These treatments work by forming a barrier on your soil that weeds cannot penetrate. This means that the weeds will not be able to sprout through the soil, and you will never see them. You should also apply a post-emergent treatment in the early spring to eliminate any existing weeds on your property. You should apply another round of post-emergent weed control to your lawn in the late spring to tackle any weeds that have popped up since the last treatment.
Apply both pre- and post-emergent weed control treatments in the summer.
During the hot summers in Georgia, fescue grass can struggle, which makes it susceptible to weed growth. Because of this, you will want to inspect your lawn in the early summer for any weeds. If you see any weeds on your lawn, a post-emergent treatment should be applied to eradicate them. During the late summer, a pre-emergent treatment should be applied to block any new weeds from sprouting. Before summer ends, you should apply another round of post-emergent weed control to get rid of any existing weeds.
Pre-emergent weed control treatments are great at protecting against common weeds like dandelions, crabgrass, and clovers.
Pre- and post-emergent weed control treatments applied in the fall will help prepare your fescue grass for the winter.
It is essential to keep your lawn weed-free during the fall season so that your grass can absorb all of the nutrients and resources it requires to survive the winter season. In the early fall, you should apply both pre- and post-emergent weed control treatments to ensure new weeds are not able to reach the surface and eliminate any existing weeds in your fescue grass. Later in the fall, you should apply another round of post-emergent weed control to eliminate any existing weeds on your property.
