Weed Management in Lawns

Managing weeds in a lawn can be a hassle for any homeowner. There are several things you can do to prevent them from taking hold in your turf.

Turf density is a big factor in preventing weeds naturally. Many weed seeds require sunlight in order to germinate. If your lawn is thinning or struggling to fill in, a core aeration and over-seeding would be perfect. Once the new seed is established, it will help shade out the soil and prevent weed seed germination.

If weeds have already gotten a foothold on your lawn, we can apply a post-emergent herbicide to control them. Some common varieties of weeds that we can control are:

  • Ground Ivy (often called Creeping Charlie)
  • Black Medic
  • Plantain
  • Burdock
  • Chickweed
  • Clover
  • Dandelion
  • Field Bindweed
  • Hawkweed
  • Henbit
  • Mallow
  • Mouseear Chickweed
  • Mustard
  • Oxalis
  • Pineappleweed
  • Poison Ivy & Oak
  • Knotweed
  • Purslane
  • Sheep Sorrel
  • Spurge
  • Thistle
  • Wild Carrot
  • Wild Garlic
  • Wild Strawberry
  • Yarrow
  • And so many more!

Here at Keyman, we use environmentally responsible applications of our products and understand the need to be conscious about their use. Weed control is applied on a minimized basis using a “spot spraying” technique. We apply an effective liquid herbicide in areas where weeds have emerged. This ensures the most minimized exposure to people, pets and other wildlife while still giving you a beautiful lawn. All of our technicians are state certified and licensed professionals.
