Weed Control and Weed Prevention Services

An important component of any lawn care program is weed control. Quality weed control starts with an inspection of your turf in order to spot unwanted growth early on. SavaLawn, the lawn care division of SavATree, uses a lawn treatment approach that targets only the spots of your lawn that require weed control.

SavATree Weed Control and Prevention.

Our lawn treatment specialists utilize two treatment options for weed control: pre-emergence weed control treatments and post-emergence treatments. Your lawn specialist will develop a program that addresses your personal preferences and integrates carefully targeted treatments for weeds such as crabgrass and other problems in your lawn.

SavaLawn's Weed Control Treatments

  • Pre-emergent Weed Control

    Pre-emergent weed control is a component of any lawn care program.

    Pre-emergent weed control management aims to prevent young seedlings from sprouting up in your lawn at the start of the season. Our lawn care specialist uses carefully timed treatments, before germination, to keep your lawn weed-free without injuring your established turf.

  • Post-emergent Weed Control

    Post-emergent weed control addresses weeds already growing in your lawn.

    Your SavaLawn specialist may combine both treatments to provide maximum weed control in your lawn.

Types of Grass Most At Risk

Some types of grass are higher risk for weed problems.

Types of grass that may be at a higher risk and should receive preventative weed control services are: crabgrass, foxtail, goosegrass, buckhorn, chickweed, clover, dandelion, hawkweed, henbit, and plantain. In order to help you develop turf that is naturally more competitive against disease, insects and weeds, your lawn service specialist may recommend that you incorporate a balance of specially formulated nutrients and slow-release fertilizers into your lawn service program.
