Your lawn requires many services to keep it healthy and growing correctly. Without these services, the grass will not reach optimal conditions. Proper fertilization is key to making sure your grass and landscape plants are strong enough to fight off disease and insects.

Another service that is necessary for the health of your lawn is weed control. When weeds are allowed to grow, they can quickly take over. Here are some other reasons why your lawn in Noblesville, Carmel, Westfield, and nearby areas in Indiana requires weed control applications.

Using Pre-emergent Weed Control Helps Kill Weeds Before They Grow & Take Over

Dandelions are growing in this yard in Carmel, IN.

If your lawn hasn’t been treated for weeds before, then there will be many types growing there. In our area of Indiana, we have common weeds such as dandelions, chickweed, crabgrass, broadleafs, henbit, spurge, and more. A pre-emergent treatment attacks them before they start to grow. Our herbicides are also created to specifically kill weeds, which keeps your plants and grass safe.

Applying weed control along with a routine fertilizer treatment gives your lawn everything it needs to thrive.

Killing Weeds Gives Back Nutrients Such as Light, Air, & Water to Your Plants & Grass

Weeds grow much more quickly than your grass and landscape plants do, meaning they suck up the nutrients from your soil and gain access to sunlight and water before your grass does. The key nutrients in soil that your plants need are potassium, nitrogen, and phosphorus. When weeds take those instead, it causes your plants to weaken. Weaker plants are not easily able to fight off common plant diseases or insect infestations.

Letting weeds stay in your yard also creates a nutrient imbalance in your soil. Since weeds grow so quickly, they often take more of one nutrient over another. When that happens, it affects all the grass and plants growing on your property.

Weed Control Saves Time & Protects the Investment Made in Your Landscaping & Lawn

This landscaped lawn in Westfield uses routine weed control treatments.

As a homeowner or business owner, you’ve made a big investment in your lawn and landscaping throughout the years. Applying weed control helps to protect that investment, as weeds can choke out those plants and grass. Regular weed control treatments also save you time—with these treatments, you’re not out in your yard on the weekends, hand pulling weeds from landscape beds. This gives you more time to spend with friends and family while knowing your plants are safe.

Getting Rid of Weeds Helps Eliminate Potential Dangers

Some weeds are poisonous and if your dogs or cats eat them, it can cause health issues that result in a costly vet bill, such as indigestion, vomiting, rashes, and more. Flowering weeds also attract bees and wasps and if you or your kids like to go barefoot in the grass, they may get stung.
