Spring is finally here, and so are the stubborn weeds. One day your lawn is clear, and the next you spot those yellow flowers everywhere. The time it takes to clear them out can be back breaking or unhealthy with the wrong products. Here are some key reasons why weeds should not be welcome on your lawn and why weed control is so important:
Ruins Curb Appeal
If you’re looking to sell your home or show off one of the best lawns on the block, weeds will ruin the appearance of a well-maintained, lush lawn. Additionally, they grow quickly and are stubborn to remove if a homeowner just chooses to ignore a small section. After just one windy day, for example, those seeds from the dandelions will spread across your whole yard.
Stunts Lawn Growth
Weeds will compete with your grass for the water, nutrients, space, and sun, and often come out on top since their roots go deeper and they are larger plants in general. Plus, if they reach your garden, they can do the same in there and harm your flowers, veggies, fruits, or whatever you have growing.
Damages Lawn Equipment
Weeds are tougher and larger than grass, so your lawn mower may not cut through them as easily. In some cases, mowing over a large amount of growth can even cause the blades to jam, which could cause mechanical wear and tear if it’s left running for too long.
