Did you know that fall is one of the most critical seasons for the health and vitality of your lawn? Without proper care and maintenance now, your lawn may not be able to rally and become the thick, lush yard you look forward to each spring and summer.
By neglecting fall weed control, your lawn may awaken from its winter dormancy choked with weeds and severely malnourished. Custom Lawn is breaking down the details, right now:
How Fall Weed Control Will Help Your Yard Next Spring
You probably thought the weeds would just die off with the arrival of freezing temperatures, but that’s a common misconception. Weeds may look dead, but like the grass plants themselves, they’re just entering a period of dormancy for the winter, preparing to rebound in the spring. In the meantime, they’ll steal valuable nutrients from your lawn this winter.
Common Kansas City Weeds to Combat This Fall
Common weeds in the Midwest include dandelions, sedge, yellow wood sorrel, chickweed and henbit. Unless you kill these weeds in the fall, they’ll take over your yard, robbing it of much-needed nutrients and moisture. Do this NOW, not in the spring when they’ve already taken hold and damaged your lawn beyond repair.
