A lush lawn requires products, patience and a bit of planning. The payoff for those who invest their time and resources into this effort will be something the entire neighborhood is envious of. Boise landscaping companies who provide a weed care package to customers are often praised for the work they do and one look at front yards across the regions of Idaho that Diamond Lawns serves should tell the story. Below, we’ll outline some of the steps required to achieve that crabgrass and weed-free lawn and how professional landscaping companies can help homeowners get the job done.
Timing is Everything: You’ve surely heard that phrase before and it still rings true in the world of lawn care. That’s because pre-emergent herbicide, which is incredibly effective at killing weeds before the seeds can grow, must be applied before the seed germinates. According to Garden-Counselor-Lawn-Care.com, “the chemical must be situated in place prior to the weed seed starting to germinate … If you miss the opportunity, these products will do nothing.” The sheer variety of weeds that call Idaho home, and the different times of the year in which they sprout, means it may be best to call on Idaho lawn care companies to correctly apply pre-emergent. What’s more, there may be bi-annual applications required so that the best possible results are achieved. If you’ve got questions about soil temperature, lackluster results after a DIY attempt or other seasonal concerns, consult landscaping companies like Diamond Lawns for advice.
Feeling Crabby: Nothing puts a damper on all your hard work like having patches of “crabgrass” scarring your lawn. There’s quite a bit of confusion surrounding this problem, too, because crabgrass is a weed that thrives in moisture and sunlight. It’s possible to use pre-emergents, as part of a weed care package, to take care of crabgrass before it takes hold in your hard. Some Idaho lawn care experts, like those at Diamond Lawns, will add that the roots of crabgrass can stretch several feet, making removal a stressful whack-a-mole project for homeowners. To save time, money and patience, experts at Diamond Lawns will deploy their pre-emergent program so that crabgrass is targeted throughout the spring and summer months.
There’s no reason to settle for a sub-par lawn when Idaho lawn care companies can make short work of seasonal weeds and crab grass. To learn more about your options, contact us at your earliest convenience by calling
