How do you stop weeds from growing back

For instance, if you are dealing with Monkey Grass, we have a specialized control product to address that. If you have Nutsedge creeping into your plant beds from the lawn, we can mix up a specialized product to handle that. Our technicians are trained to know what products to use, where to apply them, and when to apply them—as all of these details matter. Keep in mind that because different seasons produce different weeds, it’s important that products are rotated based on season, too.

In fact, many homeowners assume that there’s nothing more they can do to address weeds other than mulching their beds and hand-pulling any of the weeds that break through. While it’s certainly true that mulching will help suppress weeds, there are always those persistent ones that continue to emerge.

It’s really a win all around. You get to take back your time while also having the best-looking plant beds in your neighborhood. It’s a wise choice that will pay off in more ways than one.

Enhancing the Health of Your Flower Beds

Of course, you might be wondering what kills weeds but not plants in your flower beds? You may be worried about harming the plants that you love. Rest assured, at Master Lawn, we are utilizing specialized products, customized to your landscape beds and their specific needs.

That means in addition to answering the question of how to prevent weeds in flower beds, this program will also enhance the overall health of the plants within those beds. The introduction of these microorganisms (like beneficial fungi and bacteria) will assist your plants in their ability to digest nutrients in the soil.

How to Stop Weeds from Growing in Mulch

At Master Lawn, our Landscaping Weed & Feed program includes a rotation of pre-emergent and post-emergent products in addition to the use of organic, pro-biotic soil additives in order to help improve your plants’ color, vigor, and root health.

An effective approach to weed control in plant beds includes an ongoing rotation of pre-emergent products. Pre-emergent weed controls are ones that prevent weeds in the first place by inhibiting their seeds from germinating. In many cases, these products will take care of a large majority of your weeds. However, post-emergent controls can also be used to address any breakthrough that occurs.

How do you stop weeds from growing back

A weed is technically just a plant in the wrong place. It could be an unwanted seedling from another plant, or something more pernicious and invasive that you really want to eradicate. However, while you’ll never be able to completely stop weeds from popping up, there are ways to ensure they have less places to grow.

Bare patches of soil will quickly be colonised by both annual and perennial weeds, so a well-stocked border is less likely to support a thriving population of these pesky plants. If you have gaps in your borders, plug them by planting ground covering plants.

About weeds

Most weeds are easy to eradicate if spotted early enough and can be controlled without the use of chemicals.

Annual weed seeds can survive for years in the soil, waiting for the perfect conditions to grow. They germinate at lower temperatures than most garden plants and can grow and set seed very quickly. It’s important to recognise them at the seedling stage, so you can eliminate them without accidentally removing your flower or vegetable seedlings.
