01 Jul July is a Great Time for Preventative Weed Control
Now that summer is here, it’s time to turn your attention to weed control. Though there were below-freezing temperatures in Tucson this winter, those days are firmly behind us now! Warmer temperatures and Monsoon rain bring weeds back to life here in the desert. Prevention is the key to controlling weed growth, and is something your Tucson Commercial Landscape maintenance company can assist you with. Pre-emergent spray can help you stop weeds before they even start. Read on to learn more.
What Is Pre-Emergent Spray?
As the name suggests, pre-emergent spray is used to kill seeds of weeds before they even emerge. The climate in the Southwest is very inviting to a variety of weed species, which can cause irritating allergic symptoms as well as an eyesore in your landscaping. As the weather keeps getting warmer, seeds begin to germinate and poke their heads out of the ground. Pre-emergent spray contains an herbicide that creates a barrier around the seed, preventing it from ever sprouting. This barrier seals off the seed. Pre-Emergent is safe to use around your existing plants as it only stops germination of seeds. July is a great month to spray Pre-emergent, as our summer rains will help to soak the pre-emergent into the ground
The Benefits of Pre-Emergent Spray
You lead a busy life, and there are probably many things you’d rather do than spend your free time pulling weeds out of your garden. Pre-emergent spray solves that problem before it even starts, decreasing the time you have to spend doing landscape maintenance. Your Tucson landscapers can use a pre-emergent spray so you avoid having to see unsightly and sometimes hazardous weeds take over your custom landscape. Many types of weeds are notoriously hard to get rid of, with roots that extend deep below the surface. Pre-emergent spray prevents these from growing, and may minimize your weed growth in coming seasons as well.
