THE BENEFITS Of PRE-EMERGENT WEED CONTROL
- The weed is eliminated permanently, because the seed is allowed to germinate, and the young tender sprout is killed. A PreEmergent is activated in the top layer of soil, where the weed seeds sprout, and by design it stops the plant from growing. This is one key advantage over just putting down new soil or mulch to bury the seeds. Weed seeds remain viable many years, waiting for a chance to pop up. Pre-emergents break the cycle of constant regrowth of new weeds.
- It can remain effective in the soil for several weeks up to several months, depending on the ingredient used and the concentration of it. This benefit comes right at the time when there are so many other gardening tasks to which you want or need to give your attention.
- This will limit the amount of weeds in your turf and allow us to focus our second treatment on the broad leaf weed control treatment.
- Each successive season the need to spray a post- emergent weed killer is lessened and perhaps gone for good. The ideal status of completely eliminating weeds would also require that you take other measures to get your lawn healthy, thick and strong, and able to out-compete any challengers. In many yards, due to outside infestations, the need to continue with this herbicide will continue. Yet the advantage will be yours.
