Weed Control & Suppression – Pre-Emergent & Post-Emergent Treatments

Weed Controlled LawnThe first step in weed control is to first understand why weeds are present. Appearance of broad leaf weeds in your lawn is an indication that there are chemical, biological and/or cultural (physical) imbalances in the soil. Soil compaction, pH that is too high or too low, and nutrient deficiencies are some of the conditions inviting unwanted weeds. Address those conditions and weeds will often go away.

Initially and when needed, through core aeration and over-seeding, we strive to crowd out weeds by growing thick, healthy grass.  When weeds comprise more than 25-30% of the yard, especially in transitioning lawns, Organic Plant Care has both pre- and post-emergent herbicide treatments available to suppress weeds to a manageable level.

Treatments available:

  • Pre-Emergent Weed Suppression:  Organic corn gluten application in early spring to maintained lawn area to suppress crabgrass, Stilt-grass and broadleaf weed seed germination.
  • Post-Emergent Weed Suppression:  Horticultural vinegar herbicide application when weeds are actively growing for non-selective control of broadleaf weeds and undesirable weed grasses.

We have proven results: lush, dense lawns that are beautiful, safe & organic!
