It is pretty safe to say that just about everyone would rather have a beautiful lush green lawn full of grass and pretty plants instead of ugly weeds. While aesthetics is important for curb appeal, there is another reason to keep your Phoenix lawn looking beautiful and free from weeds. Weeds are a huge attraction for pests.

Phoenix pest control companies will tell you that if pests are attracted to your weeds then there is a big chance that they will eventually enter your home. Keeping you home free from pests starts with implementing Phoenix weed control tips in your yard.

Tip number one for Phoenix weed control is to water your grass on a regular basis. Your lawn should consist of weed free, healthy turf no matter the species. If, however, your lawn is already full of weeds you might want to have weed control services performed in the turf to remove all the broad leaf weeds like dandelions, bur clover, thistle and all the thorny species of broadleaf plants that love to invade our warm season turf grasses.

Some unwanted grasses might be able to be controlled as well, but unwanted broad leaf weed in turf is actually fairly easy to control. This will help you avoid needing to reseed or replant your yard to bring it to a beautiful and pristine look. Pulling the weeds will generally only encourage more weed growth by breaking the root systems and generating new growth from those points in the rhizomes.

Tip number two is to fertilize. To keep weeds from growing you should fertilize on a regular basis. This task will also strengthen your turf and suffocate the broadleaf weed out of the healthy patch of grass.

Tip number three is for removing weeds. If weeds show up in your yard many do it yourselfers will purchase a weed killer spray. There are many options for sprays. So read the labels and instructions carefully and choose one that will fit within your lifestyle and that you can use safely around children and pets. Better yet, call a professional when dealing with herbicides and pesticides – we are trained, it’s our job to protect people, pets and property!

Tip number four is also for removing weeds. If you have some stubborn weeds, you can pull them out by hand. But, it is vital to make sure that you pull them out by their roots. Leaving the roots will not help, but only hinder your efforts as the weed comes back again.

Tip number five is to make sure that the weeds do not flower. You need to make sure that you remove the weeds before they flower. If you let them flower, the flowers will then turn to seed, and wha la – more weeds are surely going to propagate when all the new seeds they hit the soil.

Tip number six is to watch your neighbor’s yard. If they are not caring for their yard and it is always overtaken by weeds then you should put up a solid fence. A solid fence will reduce the chances of their weeds also taking over your yard despite your best efforts. This is always a tough situation, and sometimes having a weed control company can help, because we tend to knock on the neighbors doors and ask them if they would like a weed treatment too! This way you don’t have to be upset or embarrassed to speak to the neighbors about their nasty weeds.

As many of you know, at least those of you that live in a HOA, the home owners association will definitely be speaking with them, sending nasty-grams, and even possibly an assessment or fine! Ouch.
