If you have allergies, spring time is one of the worst seasons for you. The germination of dandelions, clovers, juniper, piñon, and cedar trees can create havoc for your sinuses. Without fail, springtime winds and warm temperatures will hit the southwest region soon.
Aside from allergies, weed control is one of the biggest frustrations of keeping a lawn. In the Albuquerque area, most lawns are comprised of turf, cacti, or xeriscape, perfect for weeds and pests to make themselves comfortable.
Timing is crucial when it comes to spring weed control. The sooner its addressed, the better. Weed control should be part of any lawn care program. Thanks to southwestern winds, some weeds can travel more than 100 miles in a single setting. In addition, one dandelion plant is comprised of 15,000 seeds, which can survive six years in the soil—creating 15,000 more seeds when it germinates according to The Old House Magazine.
Tips for Getting Rid of Weeds:
- Crowd out weeds
- Water grass deeply
- Mow higher
- Stop them when they’re seeds
- Call a professional
Most conventional lawn care programs require an application of pre-emergent herbicide or synthetic herbicides to prevent the weed seeds from germinating or treat chronic existing weed problems. Ignoring the problem can lead to infestation and ultimately cost you more money in the long-run.
