7 Best Weed Control Practices for Your Business Lawn 

A professional landscaper removes weeds from a lawn with the best weed control practices.

Every commercial and residential property owner struggles with weeds encroaching on their property. Like it or not, weeds often grow prolifically and, without proper prevention and property maintenance, can become an unsightly problem. Thus, it is important to use a professional landscaping service to provide proper property care and weed control practices. 

About Weeds 

A weed is generally described as any plant that has no discernable value and is unwanted or grows in an undesired place. There are about 8,000 species of plants worldwide that are classified as weeds. Weeds are opportunistic plants, meaning they grow when favorable conditions include temperatures and moisture levels, and they can grow almost anywhere. They can grow in bare or thin turf areas, sidewalks, driveways, and cracks in the road. During active growth periods, they can produce thousands of seeds per plant and disperse them all around the area. 

There are broadleaf and grassy weeds, annuals, winter annuals, summer annuals, biennials, and perennials.  

Utilizing good weed control practices is important because weeds spread easily, crowing out other vegetation. They rob other plants of nutrients, and some weeds can irritate the skin, aggravate allergies, and harbor insects and diseases.

Why it is Important to Have a Well-Kept Commercial Property 

Good weed control practices and other professional landscaping actions help provide a commercial enterprise with good curb appeal, creating an attractive and brand-enhancing impression for employees, visitors, and potential customers. A well-kept commercial property increases the property’s value and helps to increase sales. It contributes to enhanced productivity for employees. Good landscaping is good for the environment, improving air quality, reducing noise pollution, and contributing to lower energy bills. It helps to control erosion. Landscaping can be used to create a natural safety barrier around a property. 

7 Best Weed Control Practices for Your Commercial Property 

Use these weed control practices for your commercial property: 

  1. Mowing should be done regularly using a high blade setting. It is important to keep lawns dense to crowd out weeds and prevent weed growth. 
  2. Watering should be done deeply and infrequently. 
  3. Core aerate about every other year. 
  4. Fertilize regularly. 
  5. Apply pre-emergent herbicides to prevent weeds from germinating in the first place.
