As most homeowners already know, weeds can ruin the appearance and growth
of a healthy, beautiful lawn. While taking preventative measures can help
protect lawns from these pesky plants, many begin to show after the weeds
have already established their presence. As a result, homeowners should
take advantage of
post-emergence herbicide treatments in order to prevent the weeds from ruining a beautiful lawn.
Understanding How Post-Emergent Herbicide Treatments Work
Post-emergent products attack the weeds that have already risen above the
surface of a lawn. These products can control the growth of the existing
weeds. Because there are different types of weeds, it is important to
understand that there are different types of post-emergent weed control,
In most cases, these formulas are used on perennial weeds since they are
absorbed directly into the plants and move through the plants in order
to control the weeds.
· Contact Herbicides:
These types of formulas are used to control the parts of the plant that
are exposed. Most often, these are used on smaller weeds and annuals since
these types of weeds can be removed by the death of foliage alone.
· Selective Herbicides:
These types of herbicides are designed to target specific weeds in your lawn
· Non-Selective Herbicides:
These formulas are used for broader weed control for unmaintained areas.
