Don’t Let Weeds Steal Your Sunshine: Lawn Pre-Emergence Tips for a Lush Yard

Spring is in the air, and that means it’s prime time to get your lawn ready for the growing season. But before you focus on fertilizing and mowing, there’s an important step you shouldn’t forget: having Majestic apply a pre-emergent herbicide.

A pre-emergent herbicide is a weed control product that prevents weed seeds from germinating in the first place. This can save you a lot of time and effort down the line, as it’s much easier to prevent weeds than to control them once they’ve established themselves.

Here are some key tips about using pre-emergent herbicides effectively:

Know the timing: The timing of your pre-emergent application is crucial. You want to apply it before the weed seeds germinate, but not too early that it breaks down in the soil before it has a chance to work. The ideal time to apply a pre-emergent herbicide depends on your location and the type of weeds you’re trying to control. In general, it’s best to apply it in early spring, just after your grass has started growing. Contact Majestic to see when is the best time.

Safety first: Pre-emergent herbicides can be harmful if not used properly. We recommend keeping children and pets away from the treated area until it is dry.

Other tips: Keep in mind that pre-emergent herbicides won’t control existing weeds. If you already have weeds in your lawn, you’ll need to use a post-emergent herbicide to control them. Contact us for help today.

With a little planning and effort, we can help you have a weed-free lawn that you can enjoy all summer long. So don’t wait, have Majestic apply a pre-emergent herbicide today and give your lawn a fighting chance against weeds!
