Creating An Inviting Yard

I have always been one of those people who loves to create a warm, inviting atmosphere for others, which is why I started looking at landscaping design in the first place. It was incredible to me to see how much of a difference I was able to make by adding a few new plants, and after that first project, I wanted to help other people. I started volunteering to help friends and neighbors do their landscaping, and after a few months, I had developed quite a following. This blog is all about creating a warm, inviting yard through smart landscaping and an eye for detail.

The Best Solutions to Deal With Weed Problems in Your Newly Renovated Landscaping

by Addison Washington

If you have recently invested in renovating your landscaping, you want to prevent problems like weeds from taking over. Therefore, you may need good weed control solutions to help deal with problems before they start. The following weed control options are some of the best solutions to prevent problems in newly renovated landscaping:

Overseeding Lawns for Weed-Resistance

The type of grass, groundcover, and plants you have in your landscaping can affect weed growth. Therefore, you need to look for solutions that will suffocate the weeds and allow healthy plants. Today, there are specially formulated seed mixtures that include hybrid species that are more tolerant to issues with droughts and weeds. Overseeding can help to create a dense turf that doesn't allow the weeds to become established.

Installing Weed Barrier Mats In Flower Beds

There are also weed barrier systems that can be installed to control the problems with invasive plants from taking over your yard. These are textile materials that can be installed beneath flower beds, grass, and ground covers like gravel. They create a barrier to prevent weeds from rooting in your landscaping. If you are doing projects like gravel flower beds or other coverings, the weed barrier mat is essential to keep invasive plants from becoming established in these areas.

Applying Specially Formulated Weed Spray Treatments

The specially formulated weed treatments are also available to target certain types of weeds. These treatments are used to kill the weeds without affecting grass in your lawn or other plants in your landscaping. Talk with a weed control service about using these specially formulated weed control treatments in your landscaping. These are the best solutions to prevent the weeds from becoming established in your landscaping.

Removing Weeds by Hand or With Mechanical Equipment

The surest way to remove weeds is to pick them by hand. Today, there are also mechanical tools that can make it easier to remove weeds and their roots. Therefore, you may want to try using weed pullers when doing manual maintenance to your landscaping. A weed control service can also help by using dethatching equipment before applying treatments to the turfs in your landscaping. Dethatching lawns will ensure the roots of weeds get treated when a spray is applied to the turf.

The problems with weeds need to be treated early before they spread and take over your landscaping. Contact a weed control service to get help with these solutions to prevent weeds from taking over your landscaping.
