Get Rid Of Your Weeds This Spring

Winter is on it’s way out and all of your dead grass will soon be thriving again. To ensure crabgrass and other annual grass weeds do not establish themselves in your lawn, preventative care and control programs must be implemented.

Killingsworth has already begun applying pre-emergent herbicides and fertilizer to lawns all across the Charlotte Metro area. Pre-emergent herbicides are chemicals that prevent germinating weeds from becoming prominent in the lawn. They control annual grass weeds by inhibiting cell division in the young root system, leading to failure of the root system development and essentially resulting in the death of the young seedling weed shortly after germination.

It’s better to prevent the weeds before germination as they are much harder to control once they’ve established themselves. For best results, contact Killingsworth’s lawn care professionals about our Lawn Care Packages to help you maintain a beautiful lawn year round. We all know weed-free lawns are the BEST lawns!
