Weeds are very inconvenient and invasive plants that have a way of dodging certain preventative measures. Some weeds miraculously can survive pre-emergent solutions, which means that you will still have weed growth on your lawn. Obviously, you don’t want weeds growing on your lawn. For one, weeds are ugly plants, and they can jeopardize the health of the other, more desirable plants in your yard. So, how do you get rid of them once and for all?
We know! Post-emergent herbicide is the solution!
Post-emergent herbicides are used to kill weeds after they have germinated and sprouted from the ground. These specialized herbicides must be used as the plant is actively growing and not simply green. Once applied, the solution effectively kills the plant at the root, keeping it from growing any more. This method is a great way to kill off your weeds and ensure that the extraction process goes more smoothly. Sometimes, weeds can be well rooted and require excessive tugging or implementing a weed removing machine. By killing the plant with herbicide, this weakens the roots, which simplifies the extraction process.
The Benefits of Post-Emergent
The weed is eliminated permanently
Whenever you apply herbicide to a plant, you will be able to kill it. Very rarely will weeds be able to survive both pre- and post- emergent solutions. With post-emergent solutions, you will tend to be able to kill the plant once and for all.
Easier Weed Management
As stated above, killing that plant will allow you to easily pull it from the ground. So, no more wriggling it out of the ground and possibly hurting yourself. Call a professional to expertly remove your lawn’s weeds.
Use Now, Use Less Later
Post-emergent solution is much like pre-emergent solution, in that if you use it now, you won’t have to use as much later. Weeds will eventually “get the message” that they are not welcomed on your lawn. As your use the herbicide the seeds will either die away or lie dormant. So, this is a huge benefit to using post-emergent herbicide now, rather than later.
