The Trick To Keeping Your San Diego Lawn Weed-Free

If you have a yard to take care of, there's probably one problem that you're tired of dealing with again and again- weeds. Whether you have a large lawn or tend a small garden, weeds are a never-ending issue. These invasive plants take over your landscaping quickly, so if you ignore them for just a couple of weeks, they grow back in full force. Weeding is challenging as you likely have many other things going on in your life. 

But, while weed control is difficult to do on your own, there are ways to prevent weed problems. Find out how the lawn care professionals at Habitat Protection can help keep your yard weed-free and get some weed prevention tips in this guide.

Common Weeds That Plague San Diego Lawns

There are so many weeds in San Diego that grow and overtake gardens and grass; it would be impossible to list them all here. However, there are a few more common varieties to know about, such as dandelions, ragweed, thistle, broadleaf dock, barbed goatgrass, and devil's thorn.

Some of these varieties are invasive but not a big deal, while others are noxious. Some of the particularly troublesome weeds in the area include various kinds of thistles and various grasses. These plants are a concern as they aren't native to the area and can damage ecosystems. 

How Weeds Damage Your Lawn

While weeds sometimes have long-term impacts on native plants, they also have short-term impacts on your lawn. The most apparent effect of a weed problem is just how these plants look; you might not like how various weeds pop up and ruin your carefully constructed landscaping. Many kinds of weeds, such as dandelions, pop up in the grass and destroy the green, lush look. 

Along with being ugly, weeds also damage your yard in ways you might not see. Plants need enough nitrogen, potassium, and other nutrients in the soil to thrive. If there are many weeds around, they'll use the nutrients and make it harder for your plants to grow. A weed infestation can lead to withering and dying plants. Over time, you might have to replace your plants, change your landscaping, or even plant new grass. 

Factors That Create Weeds In Your Lawn

Almost any San Diego yard can have weeds, but certain factors make your yard more likely to have ample weed growth. If you don't treat your yard with fertilizer for weed control treatments, problems may arise. Also, the following can cause weed issues:

  • Overwatering your lawn
  • Mowing too closely
  • Excess heat and sun
  • Compacted soil

Compacted soil is a yard problem when the soil gets compressed too tightly. This process makes it difficult for grass to get enough nutrients, but you can fix soil compaction using core aeration services. 

Along with core aeration, it's always wise to obtain lawn care services from the professionals at Habitat Protection. We provide comprehensive weed control options.
