Weed Control FAQs
How does weed control work?
Weed control treatments vary depending on the type of weeds in your lawn, and on how long they have been growing. Pre-emergent weed control applications are used to prevent the growth of new weeds, while post-emergent weed control applications are used to eliminate weeds that have already taken root and grown in your lawn. Weed control products inhibit the growth of weeds by preventing photosynthesis and root formation from taking place.
How much does it cost for weed control?
The cost of weed control services varies based on a number of factors including the size of your lawn, the time of year (spring, summer, year-round, etc.), the type of treatment needed, and more.

What is preventative weed control?
Preventative weed control refers to the application of pre-emergent weed control treatments to your lawn to prevent new weed growth. Pre-emergent weed control products, when properly applied, create a barrier on the ground surface that hampers the growth of weeds once their roots come into contact. Preventative weed control is most effective when applied in the spring, before new seeds have had the chance to germinate and take root.
Why is weed control important?
Weed control plays an important role in facilitating a healthy, beautiful lawn, as weeds compete with their surrounding plants for light, water, nutrients, and other resources. This competition can hamper the growth of grasses and other desirable plants.
How long does it take for weed control to work?
The time it takes for weed control to work can vary depending on the type of weeds in question. Weed control treatments can kill many common weeds in as little as one to two weeks, while other weeds can require multiple treatments, and therefore take months before being fully eliminated.
When is the best time to apply weed control?
Spring and fall are the optimal times of year to apply weed control treatments, though they can be used year-round. Preventative weed control treatments in the spring stop weeds in their tracks before they’ve had the chance to take root. Applying weed control treatments in the fall, on the other hand, attacks weeds when they are in their most vulnerable state, focusing on storing energy in their roots rather than on top-growth.
