Weed Control Services for Properties in the Louisville, KY & Jeffersonville, IN Areas
Enroll in our weed control program for year-round protection with pre-emergent and post-emergent treatments.
Weeds are a nuisance and, unfortunately, they always find a way to creep into your lawn. If weeds are left untouched, they will only spread and continue to steal water and nutrients from your grass and plants. It is important to take care of these pesky weeds not only for appearance reasons but for lawn health reasons as well.
Our weed control program tackles common weeds in the Louisville, KY and Jeffersonville, IN areas such as annual bluegrass and annual ryegrass. Enrolling in our program means getting 6 different applications of pre-emergent and post-emergent treatments to prevent new weeds and kill the ones that have already sprouted. No matter if your lawn has been completely taken over by weeds or if you just have a few here and there, our experts are up to the task.
Pre-Emergent VS Post-Emergent Weed Control
When most property owners think of weed control, they think of killing the weeds that they already see growing on their lawn. However, our program is so much more than that. We not only kill weeds but we also prevent them from growing in the first place.
Pre-Emergent Weed Control
Pre-emergent means that we are stopping the seed germination process in its tracks and preventing weeds from popping up through your soil. This treatment will stop cell division, thus preventing any root system from developing. We apply our pre-emergent applications in both the spring and the fall months. In the springtime, we are preventing summer weeds from growing. In the fall, we are preventing winter weeds from growing. Pre-emergent weed control is applied as a blanket treatment, hitting every spot on your lawn to give you ultimate protection.
Post-Emergent Weed Control
Post-emergent treatments are usually what people think of when they think of weed control. These applications are more of a spot-treatment style as opposed to a blanket treatment. We apply post-emergents throughout the summer months to kill any weeds that have slipped through our pre-emergent applications.
Our Weed Control Program Schedule
When you sign up for our weed control program, you will also receive fertilizer treatments to keep your lawn as healthy as can be all year long. Below is a breakdown of our treatment schedule:
Early Spring - Our first crew visit of the year is a crucial one. Spring is when your lawn is just waking up from winter dormancy and getting ready for the growing season. Our crew will apply pre-emergent weed control as well as a balanced, slow-release fertilizer to strengthen your grass at a cellular level.
Early Summer - Summertime is when our program starts to focus on post-emergent treatments. Our crew will do a sweep across your lawn to spot-treat any weeds that slipped through our previous pre-emergent applications. We will also add another dose of pre-emergent treatment for additional protection as well as another round of fertilizer.
Summer - Our crew will return to spot-treat any weeds that we see on your lawn with our post-emergent weed control. We will also add a low nitrogen fertilization treatment to give your lawn a needed boost of nutrients.
Early Fall - As the weather starts to cool down, our team will apply a fertilizer application to encourage healthy root development.
Fall - We will help your lawn start to prepare for the winter season with another round of balanced fertilizer to encourage more healthy root development.
Late Fall - Our last treatment of the year includes a winterizer treatment to strengthen your grass for its winter dormancy period. This will help it green up faster in the spring.
