When should weed treatment be used?
The weather determines the use of weed killers. For example, you don't want to use a commercial product in windy weather. This can destroy other plants that you don't want to damage.
You also want to make sure that there is no rain in the forecast for 48 hours. Otherwise, the solution will be washed away before being able to do what it is supposed to do to kill weeds. Following the directions on the bottle of the product you purchased is the best way to avoid potential problems during the application phase of weed treatment.
Some weeds are common in winter. The use of a so-called pre-emergent prevents the seeds from sprouting and ripening. This is a precautionary step that will reduce the number of weeds that occur in colder weather.
Why use weed treatment?
There are many reasons why you should use weed treatments. Some weed species spread quickly and take over gardens, lawns and even cracks on sidewalks. If the annoying plants are not successfully treated, you can no longer get rid of them. The chances of you having a healthy lawn or vegetable plants that are growing optimally are significantly reduced.
You want to use weed treatment to reduce the time you spend pulling weeds. It prevents you from wasting your time growing flowers and plants that weed suffocates and displaces. It also increases the attractiveness of your property when it is weed-free. So all of these reasons are good for taking action and applying treatment.
