As a homeowner, you have a long list of tasks that need to be completed each season. It’s not unusual to find that one or more of these tasks are pushed to the side when spring rolls around and the to-do list grows. When deciding which tasks are more important than others when it comes to lawn care, it can be easy to neglect weed control and tackle other lawn projects. We’re here to convince you that weed control in your lawn is an essential part of taking care of your home. Here are a few reasons why:
1. Weed problems decrease your home’s curb appeal.
Having weeds in your lawn can create an unattractive first impression of your home. Weeds create a messy look, and distract from the landscaping and lawn work you have done to your home. Don’t let all of your hard work go to waste. Taking care of the weeds in your lawn will allow the beauty of your lawn and home to stand out!
2. Weeds are time-consuming to correct.
If you develop a weed problem, it can be costly and time-consuming to correct on your own. Weeds need to be dealt with immediately, or you run the risk of the problem multiplying and spreading to your entire lawn. Although local home improvement stores carry weed killers, these might not be the best option for your lawn. When improperly treated, weeds can cause even bigger issues for your grass. The best way to treat weeds is to be proactive and schedule regular lawn care services to make sure your lawn stays weed free all season long. At Advanced Lawn Solutions, we have both preventative and reactive weed control services to keep your lawn healthy.
3. Weeds lead to a thinning lawn.
When weeds compete with your grass for resources, it leads to the grass thinning out. When grass thins, the roots that hold soil in place also thin, which can lead to erosion. Erosion in your lawn can cause bumpy, uneven surfaces that are both unsightly and dangerous. Eroding lawns can also lead to sediment being washed down the gutter into our streams and ponds, polluting our community’s natural resources. Do your part for your family and your community and take care of your weed problems this spring.
These are just a few of the reasons that we believe weed control should be at the top of your home’s to-do list this season. For more information about weed control and lawn services, contact us today!
