Weed Management

Weeds can simply be defined as unwanted plants or plants growing out-of-place. The proper identification and some understanding of how and why weeds are present in a lawn are important in selecting the best control strategy. Knowledge of whether or not weeds were previously present in a particular area will also help the homeowner prepare for control procedures in the future. Weed control should be a carefully planned and coordinated program instead of a hit-or-miss operation.
