Landscaping and lawn care are important to residential and commercial property owners in Arizona. Weeds can not only ruin the hard work and aesthetics of your lawn but can also do damage to the landscaping, plants and even structures on your property.
Common Weed Damage
Weeds common to the area include dandelions, bull thistle, goosegrass, ragweed, and white clover. These plants and other varieties invade landscaping, lawns, gardens and farms and compete for sunlight, water and nutrients in the soil. They often overpower existing agriculture or crops leading to weak plants, susceptible to disease or decay.
As for lawns, weeds can overtake healthy grass and can take the nutrients out of the soil. The weed patches can be unsightly and frustrating to deal with.
Weeds can also impact crop yield. Large populations of weeds can diminish the quantity and quality of crops produced in farms or gardens.
Certain types of weeds can actually bring direct harm to humans with rashes or bad allergic reactions, among these are well known weeds poison ivy and poison oak.
DIY Weed Control
Although there are many options available, do-it-yourself weed control methods can be time-consuming, expensive or unhealthy.
Many prefer to use sprays and fertilizers found at home improvement stores to kill and prevent weeds but unfortunately these may be associated with serious health conditions. Other natural home remedies may be safer but aren’t always the most effective. Depending on the size of the property, some may choose to manually remove weeds. This can be incredibly time consuming and does not help to prevent them in the future. For the most efficient and effective solution, call in a professional weed control service.
