Tips For Ending Weed Problems In Your Naperville Landscape
1. Weeds don’t like well fed lawns – If you can manage to have a healthy and thick lawn, it will help crowd out weeds, making it hard for them to grow. Adding nutrients and regular fertilizing helps grass grow and chokes out weeds.
2. Keep your grass tall – Besides having a thick lawn, if you allow it to grow a little more than normal, it will also help to reduce weeds. Taller grass helps to prevent weeds from getting enough sun. Keeping your grass a little longer, can also help to prevent lawn diseases, such as fungus, and can prevent some insects from breeding.
3. Strike early in spring – Naperville landscaping requires early weeding to prevent spreading later on. Early preparation will get you ahead of the curve, before the weeds’ seeds spread.
4. Aerate in the fall – Aerating your lawn (also known as lawn core aeration) go a long way towards improving your soil and lawn. The aeration process creates thousands of small holes in through your grass and into your soil; enabling your grass’ roots to spread and continue growing. We recommended you perform lawn aeration during fall because it enables your lawn to recover before the following spring and summer, looking better than ever before!
