Why are there so many weeds in my lawn?
Weeds are simply an indicator that the plant you desire, turf grass, is struggling or has died. This creates space and opportunity for other plants such as dandelions, clover and plantain to get established. Simply trying to kill the weeds without doing anything to re-establish a thick healthy lawn will mean a constant battle with your lawn. An effective approach is to ensure your lawn is receiving a full season of properly timed applications and treatments including fertilizer, aeration, over-seeding and proper mowing. A thick healthy lawn will have fewer problems with weeds!
