Broadleaf weeds – Dicots; characterized by having relatively wide leaves of various shapes.












Bulbous and creeping weeds  – Bulbous weeds primarily reproduce by small bulbs formed around the parent bulb. Bulbs are renewed each year. Example is onion grass or star of bethlehem. Creeping weeds grow by way of vines or lateral stems. Example is ground ivy. These weeds must be controlled after they emerge by applying herbicides. They are difficult to control and may require several applications.


Tubors – Similar to the reproduction of the bulb. Weeds like yellow nutsedge spread by multiplying tubors, rhizomes and some produce viable seeds. Very difficult to control.      
















¨ Unless you walk your entire lawn on a weekly basis and spray or mechanically remove weeds, you will almost never achieve a “weed free” lawn as advertised by many lawn care providers or product manufacturers. There are varying degrees of weed infestation. Some lawns need blanket spraying of herbicides to kill weeds. Other lawns are healthy enough to just need spot spraying of unwanted weeds. The ultimate goal is to create a lawn thick enough to not allow weeds to grow in the first place.


¨ We use an assortment of different herbicides to treat specific weeds for maximum control. There is no “natural” way to eradicate weeds except to have such a thick lawn that no weeds have room to grow. When comparing weeds and turf-grass, weeds are the stronger species. So, it is necessary to eliminate weeds before introducing new grass seed. Sowing new seed amongst a weed infested lawn is a recipe for failure.
