What is a weed?

A weed is a plant growing in an area that we don’t want it to. In our case, a weed is any other than plant that is not a grass plant. 

Where do they come from?

Weeds can grow from seeds which land on your lawn. Seeds can end up on your lawn via many different ways such as through the wind or from passing birds.

Weeds can also creep in to your lawn from surrounding flower beds.

Why are they a problem?

Apart from being unsightly, weeds are generally much hardier than grass plants. They can survivie for much longer during periods of drought, and will constantly compete for space and nutrients.

How does Green Man Lawn Care control weeds?

At each seasonal lawn care treatment, our local lawn experts will identify which weeds are present and use the appropriate application to control them.

Can Green Man Lawn Care rid my lawn of weeds completely?

At each treatment, your local lawn expert will be able to control a large portion of weeds present in your lawn at the time of application. Some weeds are hardier than others and require multiple applications before they are under control. Some require a different type of application completely.

As we are unable to prevent new weeds growing in your lawn following each application, you should always expect weeds to grow in between treatments.
