The Negative Impacts of Weeds
How Weed Man Can Help
It doesn’t take a lawn care professional to tell you that weeds are detrimental to your turf. Not only are they an eye sore, but they also negatively impact the overall health of your lawn. While some weeds aren’t harmful, others are extremely aggressive and destructive. If control measures are not taken, certain species can overtake an entire yard in a very short period of time. There are also certain weeds that can be harmful if consumed by pets and/or children.
What Is a Weed?
Weeds are living plants that generally provide no value in terms of supplying food, nutrients, or visual appeal to your lawn’s structure. They spread very quickly and can be extremely difficult to eradicate without professional control measures. Weeds come in many different forms, varying greatly in terms of texture, color, height, and aggressiveness.
Why Are Weeds Bad for My Lawn?
When weeds invade your turf, they compete with healthy, desirable grasses for air, water, and nutrients. When fertilizer is applied, for example, weeds are often quickest to soak up the nutrients that would otherwise fuel your lawn’s growth. This results in the weakening of grass plants, making your lawn more prone to other issues, such as disease, insect infestation, and drought. Weeds also compete for space – spreading quickly and ultimately taking over what was once your green oasis.
