Pre-emergent herbicides are chemicals that prevent the germinating weeds from establishing in the lawn. These herbicides control weeds by inhibiting cell division in the young root system. The failure of the root system to develop results in the death of the young seedling weed shortly after germination. When applied pre-emergent with make a layer of protection. When susceptible weeds germinate in the treated area , they contact the herbicide and stop. Affected weeds die shortly thereafter. Pre-Emergent will not control established weeds. And for the efficacy of Pre-M will improve if the application is followed by ½ inch of water . If Pre-M is not activated by water, erratic weed control may result.
Post Emergent - Broadleaf Weeds
Broadleaf weeds are generally the easiest to identify of all the weeds. They have leaves that are broad, and are generally produced in pairs or multiples, have wide, flat leaves situated on a stem. Example of broadleaf weeds are Dandelion, Clover, Chickweed, Spurge, Wild Violet...
Post-Emergent - Broadleaf weed control strategy calls for herbicides to be applied after the weeds are visible and actively growing.
Post Emergent - Grass Weed Control
Annual grassy weeds are grassy weeds that germinate from seed, grow vegetatively, produce seed and die within a 12 month period. Crabgrasses are the most common annual grassy weeds in most lawns. If preventive or pre-emergent control strategies fail to satisfactorily control the establishment of grassy weeds, you will need a post emergent strategy. Herbicides that kill the grassy weeds after they germinates and begin to grow. These annual grassy weeds are usually lighter green in color, have wider leaf blades and possess more spreading growth habits than the cultured turf grasses. This application is most effective on young, actively growing weeds at air temperatures above 70*F. Example of grassy weeds are: Dallisgrass, sandbur, bahiagrass, nutsedge...
Bermuda Grass may be temporarily discolored by this application. A second application 2 weeks apart may be necessary for good control.
Fertilizers are chemical compounds given to plants to promote growth; they are usually applied either through the soil, for uptake by plant roots, or by foliar feeding, for uptake through leaves. These chemical compounds leave lawns, gardens, and soils looking beautiful. They give different essential nutrients that encourage plant growth. They typically provide, in varying proportions, the three major plant nutrients are: Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium - N-P-K.
Nitrogen(N): Promotes vigorous leaf and stem growth to improve the overall quality of the turf and give the turf dark green color.
Phosphorous(P): Influences early root development and growth. Encourages plant establishment.
Potassium(K): It guards against diseases and aids in drought protection and cold tolerance.
