Most property owners in Georgia cringe at the sight of weeds! These unsightly plants can not only drag down the curb appeal of your property, but they can also steal nutrients, space, and resources from your beautiful bermudagrass lawn. So, we don't blame you for wanting to get rid of them! However, there are many intricacies that go into properly applying a weed control treatment to your bermudagrass lawn. For one, different types of grasses require different schedules. Bermudagrass, in particular, is a warm-season grass and needs about seven rounds of weed control treatments. If you're looking to keep your lawn weed-free, you'll need to apply weed control treatments in the late winter, spring, summer, and fall. Keep reading to learn more about when you should apply weed control treatments to your bermudagrass lawn.

Apply weed control treatments during late winter.

In the late winter, you should apply both pre-emergent and post-emergent weed control treatments to your lawn. The pre-emergent treatment works by coating the soil and preventing new weeds from sprouting through your soil. The post-emergent treatment targets weeds that are already on your lawn. These treatments will help protect your bermudagrass lawn from losing nutrients, space, and resources to pesky weeds!

Common weeds in northern Georgia include dandelions, crabgrass, clover, and more.

Apply weed control during both early and late spring.

During spring, weed seeds will be ready to start sprouting in your bermudagrass lawn. To fortify your turf, you should apply a round of both pre-emergent and post-emergent treatment early in the springtime. The pre-emergent treatment will prevent new weeds from sprouting on your lawn and the post-emergent treatment will take care of any that already have. Then, you should follow up with another post-emergent treatment later in the spring to eliminate any existing weeds.

In the summer, you should apply two rounds of weed control to your lawn.

During summertime, it's important to apply two rounds of weed control to your bermudagrass lawn to address seasonal changes and potential weed outbreaks. In the early summer, you should apply a post-emergent treatment to spot-treat any weeds on your lawn.

Then, in the late summer, you should apply both a pre-emergent and post-emergent treatment to both prevent and eliminate weeds. By staying on top of your bermudagrass lawn's weed control schedule, you can help your turf grow healthy and strong.

You should apply weed control treatments to your lawn twice in the fall.

In the fall, you should be vigilant with weed control to ensure these pesky plants aren't on your lawn once winter arrives. You'll want to start the fall season off with both a pre-emergent and post-emergent treatment to prevent weeds from growing and to eliminate any that did.

Then, right before winter, you will want to apply the final weed control treatment of the year: a post-emergent application. This can help ensure no weeds remain in your bermudagrass lawn when it goes dormant in wintertime.
