Our Top Weed Removal Tips

June 7th, 2019
Spring has fully sprung, so you’ve likely taken care of much of this season’s landscaping and gardening preparations. With everything prepped, planted, and protected, it’s time to focus on managing your landscape. This includes keeping your eyes out for pesky weeds and maintaining the health of your garden and landscaping. Even with proper weed management in the planting stages of landscaping, you’ll want to keep on top of weed removal to ensure your plants grow healthy and look great all season long. Here are some of our top weed removal tips to keep in mind. Pulling Weeds With all the innovation that has gone into the world of landscaping, one method of weed management has been tried and true since the early days of horticulture: hand pulling. Even after careful preparation and maintenance, you’ll need to spend some time bent down in the garden pulling weeds from the ground. This time-consuming method of preventing weeds from seeding is a dreaded chore for some, but it’s a sure way to minimize weeds spreading across your landscape. Cultivation A less labor-intensive way of preventing weeds from spreading among your plants is cultivation. Regularly using a hoe to remove weeds from your plantings is a tried-and-true method of weed removal. Plus, if you cultivate before the weeds have set seed, you can expect far fewer annual weeds to sprout in your lawn and garden. Heating If you struggle with stubborn weeds in open areas, heating may be a great weed removal method for you. Using flaming or infrared units, you can apply heat to young weeds in order to kill them in large numbers before they have a chance to spread. The best part is that heating goes fairly quickly--you only need to apply heat for two to five seconds to effectively eliminate weeds. Trimming Mowing and trimming are also great methods of weed removal. Mowing below the area where weeds flower will cut off the head and prevent the weeds from seeding. However, for weeds with lower heads, or older weeds that have already seeded, you’ll want to trim them. This has the added benefit of making annual weeds far less noticeable among your garden plantings.
