Crabgrass is one of the most frequent and troublesome weeds that plague yards in Cherry Hill, NJ. Weeds are resilient and persistent plants. They seem to be stronger and more adaptable than any other plant that you’ll ever attempt to grow. They spring up in the cracks of sidewalks, driveways, patios, and your yard where they spread and thrive, crowding out your grass.
At Elements Lawn & Pest, we know that fighting weeds is an uphill battle.
Preventing weeds from popping up, eliminating established weeds, and preventing them from coming back.
Most weeds in Cherry Hill have a life-cycle of just one year. They sprout from seeds in the spring, grow during the summer, then die in the winter after dispersing their own seeds across your yard. These seeds can lay dormant in your yard for years, ensuring a steady supply of weeds for years to come.
When you sign up for our lawn care program you won’t have to worry about weeds germinating in the spring. The very first step of our six-step program is to apply a pre-emergent weed control in early spring that prevents seeds from sprouting. This will allow your grass to grow thick and lush without having to compete for light, water, and nutrients with the early weeds.
While pre-emergent weed control will prevent weeds from sprouting in the spring, it eventually wears off. Seeds that drift into your yard on the wind, or by other means, can still take root if given the chance. Luckily, with Elements Lawn & Pest, we treat your Cherry Hill lawn with targeted spot weed control to make sure weeds can’t crowd out your grass. We don’t just do it once, we make regular trips throughout the summer to spot treat your yard as needed. This, in combination with our organic-based fertilizer treatment, will keep your lawn healthy and weed free throughout the spring and summer.
The secret to preventing weeds is maintaining a healthy lawn. That’s right, when your grass is thick and healthy it can actually prevent weeds. Weeds, like crabgrass, need plenty of sunlight and warm soil to germinate. If your grass is thick and lush, it will prevent sunlight from reaching the soil, denying the seed what it needs to grow. The secret to achieving a healthy lawn is lawn service from Elements Lawn & Pest. With our comprehensive lawn care program you will see a noticeable difference in the health and quality of your turf and, as a result, less weeds.
