What Time Of Year Is Best For Weeding Your Garden?
Most experts agree that you shouldn't weed and feed your lawn in midsummer and instead suggest spring as the ideal time to eliminate weeds without killing your grass.
Applying a pre-emergent herbicide in the early spring helps to control these unwanted plants before they start to appear. If you wait until autumn, weeds may become stronger.
Not only will the herbicide take care of common broadleaf weeds, like dandelions, but it will prevent weeds from overtaking cool-season grasses, such as ryegrass and fescue.
Weeds begin to germinate when temperatures reach 50 degrees Fahrenheit for at least five straight days, so you will want to employ the application before this weather forecast.
Be sure to follow the directions on the herbicide, such as watering it into the soil. If you wait too long, it
will not work, as it cannot take out the weeds once they’re growing.
