Naturally Weed Free Lawn

Chemical weed killers have their place, but their negative effects on the surrounding environment need to be considered. Chemicals in popular weed killers can kill other plants if not applied correctly, can filter through to the water system with rain runoff, kill helpful pollinators or disrupt the natural food chain.

Experts like those at Gregory Landscape Services know how to properly use these types of powerful chemical agents and can recommend when and where they should be used.

There are ways you can naturally discourage weeds from taking over your lawn. By focusing on growing a lush, healthy lawn you will naturally begin to have less and less weeds. Adjusting your expectations to having a healthy lawn instead of a “perfect” lawn is a great start to moving to a more natural solution.

Healthy lawns crowd out weeds by competing for soil nutrients, water and sunlight. The healthier your lawn, the fewer weeds you will see.

To encourage a healthy lawn take the following steps:
– Water longer and less frequently, encouraging deeper root growth
– Mow high. Taller grass at 3-4 inches creates a shade where weeds cannot germinate
– Aerate and overseed your lawn in the fall to promote new growth

In some cases, organic treatments such as corn gluten can be used as a pre-emergent, stopping weeds before they sprout.

The knowledgeable team at Gregory Landscape Services can evaluate your soil and see where improvements can be made to help your lawn grow and look its best. A healthy lawn is your best defense against weeds.
