All There Is to Know About Commercial Weed Control

Marta Vicente

First impressions in business matter, and commercial landscaping is where it all starts. Besides general lawn care and mowing, there's more you can do when it comes to commercial landscaping and maintenance. Weeds, for instance, can wreak havoc on your commercial lawn. They can easily destroy the beautiful natural grass on the lawn, affecting your lawn's overall kerb appeal and appearance. Therefore, it's crucial to protect your lawn through effective weed control techniques and procedures. However, commercial weed management comes in many forms, and knowing a thing or two about what it entails is the perfect way to get started. Here are crucial things you need to know about controlling weeds in your commercial property.

Ground Covers Are Essential

Ground covers are an effective way to prevent weeds before they start. These perennial and low-lying plants spread across sections of the ground, suppressing weeds from growing. They eliminate the much-needed sunlight for the weed seeds to germinate.

Understand Herbicide Options

Herbicides are among the most effective chemical options for treating weeds. However, not all herbicides work the same way. And it's imperative to know how each herbicide works. Total vegetation herbicides are among the common types you will find. They are designed to kill all kinds of plants, ideal if your lawn is infested with different weed types.

What's more, they sterilise the ground. A similar option to total vegetation herbicides is nonselective herbicides. While they work the same as their total vegetation counterparts, they are ideal for spot weed treatments.

Pre-emergent and post-emergent herbicides are the other types of weed control herbicides you will find in the markets. As the name implies, the herbicides help control weed at different stages of their growth. Pre-emergent herbicides prevent weed seeds from sprouting. They are among the ideal weed control methods that prevent weeds before they even start. On the other hand, post-emergent herbicides will come in handy after weeds appear. It's crucial to pay extra attention when applying herbicides. For instance, some herbicides may be harmful to your other desirable plants or grass. Therefore, do not schedule your weed application on windy days where the herbicide is more likely to be blown to your other plants.

Nurture Your Grass

Keeping your grass well nurtured can also help keep weeds at bay. Using fertiliser is one practical way to supplement and nurture your grass. By using fertiliser, you encourage the lush and thick growth of your grass. Healthy grass is less susceptible to weeds as it leaves little space for weed growth.
