One of the preventative lawn care treatments that we provide to our customers in the Treasure Valley is fall pre-emergent weed control. Applying a fall pre-emergent is a great way to prevent pesky weeds from appearing in your lawn in the spring.
There are many variety of weeds that germinate in the fall, survive the winter, and actively grow in spring. Which means that the only preventive means of ridding your turf of invasive weeds such as henbit, annual bluegrass, chickweed, corn speedwell and lawn burrweed (or spurweed), thistle, dandelion, and clover is the application of a fall pre-emergent.
Pre-emergent herbicides stop weeds before they sprout by prohibiting weed seeds from germinating. The timing of a pre-emergent application in the late summer, early fall is critical because once weeds appear in your lawn, it is too late.
As Benjamin Franklin once said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” At Organic Solutions! Inc., we are experts in preventing problem weeds before they appear in your lawn. If you would like to get the full benefit of a fall pre-emergent, contact us today to get on the schedule.
