Common Weed Prevention
A healthy lawn is naturally preventative to weed growth because the thick root system helps kill unwanted weeds before they can grow.
A strong root system developed through proper fertilization and adequate watering dramatically limit the frequency of weed development.
The best way to prevent weeds is to nurture a healthy lawn and treat the lawn before weeds grow.
That is why Green Bee’s eight-step lawn care program offers pre-emergent treatment for prevention and uses a selective weed control for sprouts that can effectively kill weeds without damaging existing turf.
Many types of weeds can grow in the Houston climate, and each one can wreak havoc on your lawn if not adequately removed.
Green Bee safely targets all of the common Texas lawn weeds, including dandelions, clover, ground ivy, crabgrass, quackgrass, creeping Charlie, thistle, henbit, nutsedge, wild violets, spurge, chickweed, Kentucky tall fescue, plantain (Plantago major), wood sorrel, spotted surge, prostrate, knotweed, purslane, and foxtail.
We use a mild yet efficient herbicide to impact weeds within 24 hours. Over the next 7-10 days, weeds will begin to wither and die. If you attempt to remove weeds yourself, you may find yourself in a constant cycle of pulling out weeds only to discover they grew back and spread.
Using products like Roundup will kill weeds and kill all the grass around them, leaving dead, brown patches all over your lawn. Our selective herbicides are safe for grass but tough on weeds to maintain the beauty of strong, healthy grass and remove weeds effectively.
