Weed Control in a Drought – Landscaping & Lawn Care

Your lawn and flowers are struggling during this drought. So why are the weeds flourishing? It’s because weeds generally have longer tap roots than grass and ornamental plants, and they can reach further into the ground to soak up moisture and nutrients that your grass and flowers just can’t reach. There are plenty of herbicides you can spray on the weeds to eliminate them, but if you prefer not to load up your lawn with chemicals, try pouring boiling water on the weeds. This is a very effective way to kill them. If you need to eliminate weeds in a large area, cover it with several layers of newspaper or a sheet of black plastic for several weeks. Lack of sunlight and oxygen will kill the weeds. Whatever method you use, make sure the root is completely dead before pulling the weed out or it’ll come right back. If you have further questions, call us at Blass Residential Services. We can do that!
