It’s Weed Season – Stay Ahead of Them with a Few Strategies

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Sunday, 26 July , 2015

Anyone in San Diego who manages a yard understands that as we move towards summer, our plants are in full bloom – flowers, bushes, trees and our lawns are all growing rapidly after months of stagnancy and slow growth. While this is always an exciting and rewarding time for people who want the exteriors of their properties to look their best, most of us also understand that this is the time of year when weeds tend to sprout and come on strong. Many of us take steps to get rid of them by getting down on our hands and knees to remove them, but we are soon discouraged to see just how quickly they return.

San Diego is a climate where weeds have the ability to simply keep coming throughout the summer months, as many of them thrive when the weather is warm and dry. This is only made worse when we get to the point where we need to start watering the rest of our plant life to keep it going, as this provides weeds with even more fuel to grow and to invade what may seem like every part of our lawn and yard. Too many of us simply throw up our hands and give up, waiting for the summer to pass until we attack our weed problems.

Fortunately, there are strategies that can be employed that will get on top of these weeds and keep them cornered until we can really attack them later in the year. The most obvious answer is to put in the time to pull the big weeds that have appeared, but many of us would also be well-served with some sprays that can be used to kill these weeds off. There are options available that will kill weeds without harming our grass or our other plants, and many of these products will attack the weeds at their roots so that they are limited in their ability to grow back.

Of course, there are still others who want a more permanent solution, and that’s where help from San Diego landscaping professionals comes into play. Hardscapes are structures that can add aesthetics and utility to our yards, and we can also rest assured that if they’re done right there will not be any more weeds growing in those areas. Hardscapes can be installed in just about every yard, and experienced professionals can build them in a custom manner to fit the yard and the style of the home that sits on the property.

If you are concerned about the growing weed problem in your yard, you should understand that you have options and that you can win this battle. You just need to take a bit of time to put together a strategy that will take care of this situation on a more long-term basis so that you’re not spending your weekends on your hands and knees for hours at a time pulling these pests out of the ground. If you’re ready to get this done, contact Juniper Landscape Company today.

    I have a side strip of yard which is on the street. The original landscaping was VERY high maintenance and not attractive. I was always out there cleaning up the leaf litter or be fined by the HOA. I hired Juniper Landscape Company. They came out and actually listened to what I wanted. They... Read More

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
