Landscape Bed Weed Control
Are you tired of spending every weekend breaking your back in the hot sun, only to have all of the weeds you pulled come right back the next weekend? Weeds are frustrating, persistent, and ruin your beautiful landscaping when they rear their ugly heads. Even worse, using the wrong product to fight weeds can end up doing more damage to your plants. The professional lawn specialists at Lawn Masters can help you put a stop to the endless battle. Never pull a weed again!
How the Program Works
Through our Landscape Bed Weed Control program, your landscape is protected from weeds throughout the year. It begins in early spring when we apply a liquid pre-emergent to prevent weeds from coming through. This treatment doesn’t hurt plants and gives a more uniform coverage under and up close to plants when compared to a granular pre-emergent. During this first visit of the year, we will also get rid of any sneaky weeds that have already appeared.
6-8 weeks later, our lawn specialists will make another visit to make sure the weeds are under control and apply a spray to the weeds that get rid of them, but won’t harm your plants nearby. Then we will visit again in another 6 to 8 weeks to check in. We will continue to spray to treat any weeds that pop up, especially because different weeds appear at different times of the year.
At the end of summer, around September, we will come back one final time for the year to apply another round of pre-emergent and get rid of any lingering weeds to get your plants ready for cold weather again. If you notice any weeds appearing in between visits, our lawn technicians will come and take care of the problem at no extra charge to you.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is this treatment safe for my family and my pets?
Yes, our weed control treatments are safe. The health and safety of our customers is very important to us. Our products are made for residential use and our lawn specialists are licensed by the state of Indiana and fully trained on how to properly mix and apply these professional products. Some other companies use agricultural grade products, which may be cheaper, but are not safe to use in residential areas. When you choose Lawn Masters, you can trust that you are getting professionals who care about the safety of you and your family.
How long do I need to wait after treatment before it is safe to touch the plants again?
The treatment takes no longer than 30 minutes to dry. After it’s dry, it’s safe for you and your pets to touch again!
What if it rains right after you do the treatment?
As long as treatment has dried on the leaf of the plant, it will stick. It only takes 30 minutes to dry. If our technicians see that it’s going to rain soon, we add a special product into the spray to help the treatment stay on better if it rains. If you see weeds coming up between treatments, our technicians will come by to take care of the problem and reapply if necessary at no extra cost to you.
Do I need to be home when you come to do treatment?
No, we can take care of the weeds while you’re at work or out for the day. You don’t need to be at home.
Help! My landscape beds have been completely taken over by weeds. Is this the right option?
Don’t worry, we can help! It’s easy for weeds to sneak up on you, and before you know, they’re out of control. Our lawn specialists will clear out the infestation, using spray as much as possible because it is more effective at getting the whole weed than pulling, then get you set up on the weed control program to prevent the weeds from coming back.
I thought I could handle the weeding by myself, but it’s getting overwhelming. Is it too late to start this program?
We can start the weed control program at any point during the year, but it’s ideal to start in early spring (around March 1st). This allows us to be most effective at controlling and preventing the spread of weeds. If you need to start in the middle of the year, it’s no problem. Many of our customers start in the middle of the year, then continue the program so they have year-round coverage.
