Spring Lawn Maintenance, Tips for Weeding McHenry County Real Estate

May 28, 2011

As spring arrives, it brings a multitude of wonderful things: Fresh spring showers, budding flowers and warm weather are just some of the benefits of the season. However, spring also brings with it a seemingly never-ending supply of weeds. If you find that weeds are taking over the lawn of your McHenry County real estate, follow the simple tips below to get your yard looking beautiful.

Catch the weeds early: Weeds are easier to remove when they are young. Removing weeds early on also helps to prevent them from spreading.

Water your lawn before weeding, or weed right after rain: You’ll find that weeds will pull out easier in wet soil.

Pull weeds out at the root: Otherwise, the weed will grow back.

Use a weed preventer: Although it won’t kill existing weeds, a weed preventer will help reduce the chance of future weeds taking root in your mulch beds and yard.

Be careful with weed killers: Weeding can be a frustrating and tedious process that can drive you to trying any means necessary to get rid of the growth. However, weed killers may kill the plants you actually want to keep.

Now that you’re excited about getting out and removing some weeds, all you need is a lawn. We offer Williams Bay new homes at Bailey Estates, Poplar Grove homes at The Trails of Dawson Creek, McHenry real estate at Liberty Trails and Richmond new homes at The Trails of Pheasant Ridge, so you’re sure to find the Gerstad Builders home to suit your needs.
