Weeds - The Terrible Problem & How To Remove Them From Your Yard! January 29 2016
Weeds, the ugly problem that keep popping up and don't go away. They make even the beautifulest yard look flawed with their presence. They take over the growth of delicate green shoots and usually bring stickers to your yard as well. There are several ways to rid them of your yard forever but the method depends on your budget, type of weed and labor you use.
First examine the types of weeds that are in your yard. If there are only a few, pulling them by hand may be your best option. It keeps the area free of chemicals and is the least expensive -- but most labor-intensive -- manner of eliminating unwelcome lawn plants. To keep the weeds from returning, grasp at the base of the plant with gloved hands and pull out by the roots or pop them out with a small hand-held dandelion weeder. Dispose of the weeds in trash bags and place in the garbage for pick-up -- DON'T leave the weeds in the area, because they may spread seeds.
Keeping your lawn lush and healthy deters the growth of weeds, because the strong grass growth overcomes small weeds attempting to come up. Mow high and often; decapitating unwanted plants will eventually cause them to weaken and die over time. Mowing also removes the heads of plants and prevents them from growing and spreading their seeds.
