Weeding

It is important to protect your beautiful new trees and landscaping from the harmful effects of weeds. 

In fact, did you know that one single weed is capable of producing as many as 250,000 seeds? These seeds can survive for a year or can lie in wait for decades. An empty patch of land will quickly become filled with weeds if they are not pulled as soon as they begin sprouting.  Other weed types even have seeds that can come to your lawn by air or can even be brought to a new location by your shoes. As such, you will want to be on top of the very first weeds you encounter. Once you see one, we suggest spraying to kill the weed to the root. Simply pulling can leave roots in the ground which means weeds will just come up again. A landscaping expert at Root’s Nurseries can help you create a weed fighting regimen for your specific lawn.
