Pre-Emergent Now, And Prevent Weeds Later
You may not see them now, but those weeds you try to avoid are looming in the distance. Just when you thought crab grass was a thing of the past, it will rear its ugly head in the spring and summer. Pre-emergent is essential to preventing these eyesores. It stops the weeds from growing before it spreads. We are gearing up at Simply Green Lawn Care for these pesky annual weeds. How does it all work though?
- The herbicide enters the plant through the root, and works its way from the outside-in to prevent the weed from growing successfully.
- It will not kill established plants. This is the beauty of pre-emergent, while it infiltrates crab grass before it starts growing, it will not kill your lawn!
- Timing is key when using pre-emergent. If the annual weed has already established itself, pre-emergent will not help. It is key to hit the weed before it has a chance to grow. Now, in late January and early February is a perfect time to begin with treatments.
- If it is mid to late spring, and the weeds have had time to grow, post-emergent will need to be used. This process is a little more difficult especially if the weeds have spread throughout your lawn. Post-emergent is a non-selective herbicide, unlike pre-emergent, which is selective. Non-selective means that it will kill all established plants instead of just the weed, and should be used more cautiously.

Hello, I didn't catch my service techs name today, but wanted to let you know what a great job he did today, please pass this along. His service was wonderful and he was very polite, I truly appreciate it. Keep up the good work! And thank you!
I have been with these guys for one whole season. 99.9% of the weeds are gone. The grass has never been so green. They have lived up to their name.
My lawn looks awesome and I have had neighbors walking their dogs tell me the same! Thanks Simply Green!
Simply Green always does an excellent job and are very customer oriented. The technicians are more knowledgeable than those of other companies I have tried.
Please let your staff that serviced my lawn aeration and fertilization yesterday know that they did an EXCELLENT JOB! My lawn is doing better than it ever has. And because of them and the rest of the techs that come out to my house, I'll remain a loyal customer of Simply Green. Great job!
I just had another comment this morning on how good our fescue lawn looks, which happens several times a week. I walked out in our back yard this AM and couldn't believe it was the same yard as what I dealt with last year. We have a good lawn maintenance crew that takes care of mowing and edging, and we have a good company that takes care of weeding, feeding, and shrubbery & trees. I enjoy telling friends and neighbors about your service. Thank you and keep up the good work!
Happened to be home and Ben was treating the yard. He took meticulous care in the treatment. Please convey my thanks to him.
