Stopping weeds from expanding and getting rid of weeds from your yard is a normal full time job for any homeowner who wants a good looking lawn. These steps should help you manage the weeds and overtime you should see them just disappear but don’t be surprised if you see them again next year.
The best way to get rid of weeds is to stop them before they grow. This requires the application of a pre-emergence which will act as a poison to the seeds of weeds while not impacting the growth of your grass. If you have weeds that grow in early spring, middle summer or late in the fall you should apply the right pre-emergent at the right time to ensure it does the most for you.
The final step is the use of herbicides. Most garden and hardware stores now contain a spray that can be purchased to kill off any unwanted weeds in your yard or walkways. This is a poison so therefore requires more care then the other three methods I mentioned. Be sure to find one that will not hard the grass you are working so hard to defend but only goes after the specific types of weeds in your yard.
