Weeds…they will pop up in your lawn, garden and landscape beds, resulting in a less than desirable situation.

Do you have any of these at your home or business? Our team of lawn care experts will help you get your weeds controlled or eliminated.

Broadleaf Plantain – Will come back year after year and most commonly found in your lawn, driveway or even your garden.

Clover – one of the most common perennial weeds, and often a favorite for our kids and furry friends. An “indicator weed,” clover will come up in lawns lacking in fertility. You need to ask yourself this one question: Do you feel lucky?

Crabgrass – another very common weed that pops up in thin or bare spots in the lawn and along the edges of your landscape beds.

Curly Dock – This can be a large plant if left to its own devices and is easily identified by its curly leaves.

Dandelions – every child’s favorite “flower.” Avoid the temptation of blowing the seeds around your lawn.

Knotweed – “Knotweed grows in compacted areas, like along driveways or even in the middle of a school’s football field,” said Tim Dimmitt, Turf & Tree Manager. “Control is difficult and it can overtake your property like nothing else.”

Purslane – a very common plant and weed, it can be a challenge to control.

If you have a hard time getting rid of it, eat it! According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, purslane is said to be a natural remedy for insomnia. We don’t recommend eating it, but you can if you want to.

Spotted Spurge – Easily identifiable by the spots on the leaves. This weed will quickly invade sidewalks and landscape beds if left untreated.

“This one is a summer annual and each plant can produce thousands of seeds each summer for next year’s crop,” said Turf & Tree Director, Shaun Henry.

We specialize in commercial and residential lawn care services. We will come out and take a look for free and work with you to come up with a treatment plan to “lock up” those bad weeds for good!
