Weed Control and Prevention

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. We use a lawn treatment approach that targets only the spots of your lawn that require weed control.

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.

SavATree’s Lawn Weed Control Schedule

  • Pre-emergent Weed Control

    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 most weeds already growing in your lawn.

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