    5 Reasons to Pretreat Your Lawn


    When you wake up in the morning and go out back for your cup of coffee, are you happy with the way your lawn looks? Maybe you’re mostly happy with it, but you know it could be better. Do you want a lawn that can host barbecues and playdates for the kids? We’re here to tell you how to make your lawn the coolest place in Marietta and how to keep it that way.

          1. Attack the weeds before it’s too late. Procrastination can be the most fun thing to do, but it generally gets us into trouble. We miss deadlines. That little problem starts to get a lot bigger. That’s why you have to attack weeds before they even start to show. If they start to show, chances are that it’s already too late. At that point, they’re probably already choking off and killing the plants and types of grass that you do want.
          2. Do the research. Knowing what you’re up against is half the battle. It’ll help you plan your attack method. You should also research the stuff you want to keep. Learning how to nourish those plants, while making sure you’re not killing them, is of utmost importance.
          3. Choose your herbicide carefully. This goes hand-in-hand with the research element. Decide what type of grass you have/want to have and what type of weeds (poa, crabgrass, etc.) you need to get rid of.
          4. Get rid of the pests, too. Pests can do as much, if not more, damage than weeds. Take care of both, or you could end up trying to play catch-up after the fact.
          5. Hire a professional to manage your lawn care. We know you want to go out there yourself after reading this. It may be very tempting to go get one of those fancy squirt guns, but the fact is that you won’t hit all of the poa and crabgrass that has infested your yard. A professional knows it exactly how to kill the stuff you don’t want, while allowing the stuff you do want to thrive.

    So, there you have it; these are the 5 reasons you need to attack your weed problem before crabgrass and poa take over your lawn. Barbecue season is just around the corner. Make your backyard a fun place to hang out with friends and family. If that’s not quite your speed, do it for yourself. Take the necessary steps to enjoy the view when you walk out back for that first cup of coffee in the morning.
