Lawn weeds can invade even the smallest openings in the grass. Prime targets are lawns that are thin or have bare spots. The first step to controlling weeds is to have your lawn evaluated by your Giroud Lawn Care professional. Giroud Lawn Care technicians are PA Certified and trained to identify weeds and take action.

Of all the weeds, Nutsedge is considered one of the world’s worst.  Nutsedge Control requires a series of special treatments over a few seasons.   Unfortunately, there are also several other aggressive weeds like: Crabgrass, Nimblewill, Stiltgrass, Dallisgrass and Bermuda Grass. Left untreated, all of these weeds quickly spread.

The best defense against a weed invasion is having a thick and healthy lawn. Then, weeds don’t have an opportunity to take hold and thrive. The solution is a comprehensive lawn program that develops lawn density while safely utilizing properly timed herbicide applications to control crabgrass and weed infestations. Superior density may be achieved with regular fertilization, core aeration, topdressing, and seeding with an appropriate seed blend. In time, herbicide usage may be reduced as the lawn thickens.

Weed infestations increase in hot weather and control usually requires one or a series of treatments with a herbicide. However, herbicides should not be used in the heat of summer or during periods of drought. Using herbicides in hot, dry conditions kills off good grass along with the weeds. Weeds can be treated with the return of cooler temperatures and moisture.

Giroud also offers a 100% natural organic treatment program. This program concentrates on building healthy soil and plants. This is achieved with organic fertilization, organic soil conditioners, core aeration, seeding and compost topdressing.  As the lawn’s health and density improves, many weeds will be crowded out. Giroud also offers weed and grass control for flower and shrub beds and non-landscaped areas such as driveways and patios.
