I'm still learning so if you can offer any advice, I'd appreciate it.
I have a lawn care chemical company that takes care of my sodded
areas, but he said it would be too expensive for me to use his service
for the rest of my sparcely grassed yard. He just sprays fertilizer
or pre-emergent or what ever is needed every 4 - 6 weeks. Anyone got
a recommendation for what I can buy for the other 1/2 acre I'd like to
limit weed growth this year.
Also, is there a program I might follow throughout the year.
I live in Atlanta, GA.
There's an old addage that goes something like this: Any spot of dirt
will grow something - it will either be something you want or
something you don't want.
The moral being quit fighting what you don't want and plant what you
want. Quit spending money on herbicides and plant grass!
Did it ever occur to you that I have planted grass? Aerated and
seeded last fall. This yard has been a work in progress for 2 years
and it's been aerated and seeded yearly. Now I'd like to prevent
weeds from coming in.
Thanks so much for your helpful comments.
Red has a valid point. You stated that you have a yard area that is
sparsely populated with grass. That's an open invitation to weeds.
The most important aspect of weed control is having grass that is
thick and dense, so most weeds can't get established in the first
place. Then you can use a pre-emergent in Spring to prevent
crabgrass and do some spot weed control as needed. If you don't have
decent turf established, you're going to be constantly battling weeds
and when the weeds are taken care of, then you'll be looking at bare
