Did you know one of the best times to attack those pesky perennial weeds is in the fall? It’s true! Georgia is home to multiple species of perennial weeds (i.e. Bluegrass, Bermuda, and Dandelions) that, when left alone, can steal essential nutrients from your lawn, and cause significant damage.
Perennial weeds will steal those nutrients from your grass, and store them in their root systems. This ensures survival through the winter months, and they will get a head start on growth come springtime. The longer these weeds live, the stronger they get and the harder it becomes to get rid of them.
By taking action in the fall, you are attacking the weeds when they are most vulnerable. One of the best ways to combat the perennials root system is to spray a post-emergent herbicide when the weeds are taking in other nutrients. This will lead to elimination, prevention, and ultimately the protection of your lawn and gardens.
Also, by eliminating weeds in the fall it will help promote a healthy springtime lawn. Conversely, a healthy springtime lawn will help prevent weeds from returning. A thick, lush, healthy lawn is one of the best defenses against weeds because it prevents the weeds from getting sunlight, and it gives them no room to germinate.
