They say, April showers bring May flowers, but what we all know is they also bring lots of weeds. With the weather warming up and all of the spring showers you can expect your lawn to contain a fair amount of weeds unless it is well maintained.  There are things that can be done to prevent them from taking over your lawn.  Proper lawn care can lower the amount of weeds and help you maintain a beautiful lawn.  When your lawn is not doing well, it is prone to be overtaken by weeds.  Some things you can do to help are mowing to the proper height, applying the right amount of water and proper feeding.  Mowing to the proper height ensures that the grass stays healthy and allows it to shade the ground, keeping it cooler and making it much harder for the weeds to grow.  When watering the lawn, the trick is to water it deeply and intermittently.  It’s usually best to water the lawn early in the morning or in the evening depending on what part of the region you are located.  Feeding the lawn with the proper fertilizer and herbicide will help minimize the amount of weeds.  Using the correct herbicide depends on the type of weed and multiple herbicides may be needed to ensure a weed-free lawn.  Below is a list of common weeds that can be found in most lawns.

Common Types of Weeds

  • Chickweed
  • Common Purslane
  • Crabgrass
  • Dandelion
  • Ground Ivy
  • Prickly Lettuce
  • White or Dutch Clover
