Weed Control

It is often said that an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. Anyone who has experienced any illness can agree with such a sentiment. When it comes to landscaping and planned beds, the same can be said for controlling all unwelcome intruders – especially weeds. To many, weeds are a nuisance that disturb the aesthetics of a planted bed full of flowers, trees and plants within their fertilized soil. However, weeds are just as harmful to the health of the plant life as they are the aesthetics of the landscaped bed – weeds rob the plant life of necessary nutrients offered by the soil, rain and sun.

The Necessity of Weed Control in Landscaped Beds

In order to enjoy an aesthetically pleasing and healthy planted bed, it is necessary to keep all
landscaping projects free of weeds. Regardless of how healthy a bed may be when it is first planted, weeds will eventually find their way into the mix if proper landscape and lawn maintenance isn’t offered. There are several ways to combat emerging weeds, both before and after they have germinated, offering an effective prevention as well as an effective and efficient cure.

Pre-Emergent Weed Control in Landscaped Beds

Pre-emergent weed control is an excellent way to prevent various weeds from taking hold to the detriment of the health of a landscaped bed. The process is often done as part of a seasonal fertilization by adding an herbicide to prevent weeds from
developing beyond their stage of a seed. When done effectively by skilled horticulturists and landscaping professionals, pre-emergent weed control will help to offer better overall health to all landscaped beds, as well as a consistent aesthetic look that is free from additional and unwelcome plant life.

Post-Emergent Weed Control in Landscaped Beds

Though it is best to prevent weeds from ever emerging in a landscaped bed, it is necessary to remove them in an effective and efficient manner when they reach a mature state. Due to the soft soils in many planted beds, hand pulling of weeds
combined with a pre-emergent herbicide may do the trick, however, what lies beneath the surface is often worse than the few weeds that may pop up into a bedding scheme. The best thing to do is to contact a professional for the proper post-emergent
process, which may include a mix of safe herbicides to kill the weeds at the root level, as well as general landscape bed maintenance, including hand-pulling.
