3 Reasons to Invest in Weed Control
If you’ve invested time and money into your landscape, it is important to protect its condition and appearance. Unfortunately, weeds can be one of the strongest and most stubborn threats to your landscape. Therefore, beyond general lawn services (like mowing, trimming and fertilizing), it is important to include weed control in your overall landscape maintenance.
Weeds are pesky plant growths that need to be controlled and removed. If not, weeds can take over your yard and kill the landscape you’ve worked so hard to create and maintain.
#1 Weeds Starve Your Plants and Shrubs
Weeds have a tendency to grow and spread quickly. As they do so, they absorb a large amount of nutrients from the soil and starve your existing plants of the nutrients they need to thrive.
#2 Weeds Lead to Other Landscape Issues
Since weeds can “hog” the nutritional content of the soil, they contribute to an overall soil imbalance. Over time, plants become more weak and vulnerable to disease, pest infestation, and drought.
#3 Weeds Can Be Dangerous to Your Family
There are weeds that grow in Georgia that can not only harm your landscape but pose danger to your kids and pets too! Pokeweed is an example of a toxic weed that if ingested, can cause serious health ramifications ranging from fever and weakness to stomach issues and liver failure. Effective weed control can reduce or eliminate this risk so that your family can enjoy your landscape without fear.
