How to remove weeds from your Lawn

Ugh, weeds! Those dandelions, crabgrass patches, and clumps of clover that appear out of nowhere are the scourge of homeowners everywhere. It's not fair, after all the work you put into your lawn. The best way to prevent weeds is to grow a thick and healthy lawn, but they may still pop up. Fortunately, there are several simple steps you can take to control the weeds in your yard.

Here are a few other tips for preventing weeds:

  • Feed regularly. Proper lawn care is the best medicine. When your lawn is stressed out, it has a higher chance of being taken over by weeds. Feeding your lawn regularly every 6 to 8 weeks during the growing season with a lawn fertilizer which helps your lawn stay thick and lush, making it less welcoming to weeds by leaving little space for them to grow. You can also give your lawn a boost by aerating or dethatching as needed.

  • Mow higher. Weed seeds, like all plants, require sunlight to sprout. The next time you mow, raise your mower height. Mowing at a taller height, usually one of the two highest settings on your mower, helps the grass grow tall and thick to shade the soil, so weed seeds are less able to sprout and grow.

  • Water deeply. Watering deeply and infrequently helps your lawn grow deeper roots so it can better compete with weeds. Frequent, shallow waterings encourage shallow root growth. This makes the grass more likely to suffer during periods of heat and drought, causing thin and bare spots that weeds will take advantage of. When your lawn develops deep roots, it can grow thicker to help crowd out weeds.
