Dealing with Dandelions Cumming, GA
blooming dandelions

When dandelions pop up in your yard, it can be a cheerful sign of spring color compared to the recent lackluster months of your winter landscape. However, dandelions don’t always retain their warm welcome. Many homeowners find that dandelions are too persistent and stubborn. At Pannone’s Lawn Pros & Landscaping, we can help you with dandelion management and/or removal so that you can keep a purely green lawn this season.

Facts About Dandelions

Whether you appreciate dandelions or consider them your lawn enemy, it is important to get to know them. Here are some facts about this persistent yet common plant so that you can better understand what you are dealing with:

  • Dandelions, also known as Taraxacum officinale, are perennial plants.
  • They draw nutrients from the soil through a single taproot.
  • They belong to the sunflower family.
  • New seedlings can germinate in less than an inch of earth.
  • Each dandelion flower head produces between 150-200 seeds and can spread quickly.
  • Dandelions have an important role within their ecosystems.
  • Like many so-called weeds, dandelions are actually an herb.
  • The entire plant is edible.
  • Dandelion has been used to reduce inflammation, promote heart health, and balance blood sugar.

Removing Dandelions Without Chemicals

Not everyone is willing to apply chemicals or herbicides in their yard to remove dandelion plants. Fortunately, dandelions can be eradicated from your yard organically, or by pulling them by hand. Pulling dandelions is an effective way to clear your lawn, but it does require some hard work and dedication.

It is best to wait for the soil to be soft and damp, such as after a rain. A weeding tool can be used to loosen the dirt around the taproot. It is important to gently pull the dandelion and remove as much of the taproot as you can to prevent regrowth. If you have bare spots in your lawn, consider planting new grass to prevent the further spread of dandelions.

What our clients say about us

Katherine M.

Would give 10 stars if I could. Pannone Landscaping exceeded our expectations and was such a pleasure to work with! Brad set reasonable expectations for the timing of the work (leveling, drainage system, fire pit, and sodding), and was the best priced quote with quality material and labor. We cannot speak highly enough of Brad and his crew, from their professionalism to expert advice to skilled work! Our yard went from ugly mud pit to lush golf course. Looking forward to working with Pannone and his team again!

Alex D.

Brad and his team did a wonderful job for us! Our backyard was overgrown and a mess after we moved in. Brad helped us come up with a plan to turn it around that would work for our family. He was quick to respond, reasonable priced, and our yard looks fantastic. We’ve gotten so many compliments. Hope to work with him again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone that needs some landscaping help!

Ashley W.

We had the best experience working with Pannone's Lawn Pros & Landscaping! Brad guided us on every aspect of our exterior renovation from hardscapes to the annual color. He worked to find exactly what we were looking for even when items were difficult to find. We greatly appreciate his responsiveness, honest guidance and professionalism throughout the entire project. Thank you Brad!!
