Common Weed Control Mistakes

Weed control is essential for maintaining a healthy lawn. But even the most diligent homeowners can make mistakes that allow weeds to take over. Here are some of the most common weed control mistakes and how to avoid them, and if you’re looking for an Atlanta lawn care company to keep your lawn looking its best, contact Simply Green Lawn Care.

Not Mowing Enough

Mowing your lawn on a regular basis is one of the best ways to keep weeds at bay. But if you’re not mowing often enough, weeds will have a chance to take over. Aim to mow your lawn at least once a week, and more often if necessary.

Not Mowing High Enough

When you do mow, be sure to set the blade high enough. If you cut your grass too short, it will be more susceptible to damage and weeds. The ideal height for most lawn grasses is 3-4 inches.

Not Watering Deeply or Infrequently

Deep, infrequent watering is the best way to water your lawn. If you water too often or not deeply enough, your lawn will be more susceptible to weeds. Water your lawn deeply and less often to encourage deep rooting.

lawn aeration

Not Fertilizing or Aerating

Fertilizing your lawn is important for maintaining a healthy lawn that can compete with weeds. Be sure to fertilize at least once a year, and more often if necessary. You should also aerate your lawn. Aerating your lawn helps improve drainage and allows nutrients and water to reach the roots of your grass.

Have used Simply Green for over a year now for weed control & fertilization. Their service & products have helped improve the appearance & health of my grass in this short time. Taffari has been the technician the last few visits and he is great - super knowledgeable & able to answer my questions. On the last visit Taffari had the service manager reach out on a concern and it was addressed & resolved the same day.
