Spring is upon us already here in Fort Wayne, and with it comes blossoming flowers and green leaves once more. It also means that those little yellow dandelions are going to start growing and trying to ruin your otherwise perfect lawn and flowerbeds. Don’t let wild growth take over your otherwise pristine yard. Make sure you have a plan in place to fight back against the dandelions of the world with a perennial broadleaf weed control strategy from Signature Lawn Services.

We’ll take a look at the current state of your lawn and how far along the dandelion growth is. After we’ve gotten a status check completed, we’ll then apply a selective broadleaf weed control to your lawn after the dandelions have germinated and are actively growing. This will interrupt their growth cycle and put a stop to their invasion for the time being.

After the treatment has been applied to your lawn, you’re going to want to take steps to ward off further dandelion incursions. This means you’ll want to promote a healthy, dense grass growth by mowing a little taller than you might be accustomed to (3” to 3.5” from the ground). Making sure that you water your lawn about 1” per week is also a good idea. This is assuming that it didn’t rain that week, of course. This thick turf will help to prevent weeds such as dandelions from popping up due to limiting the available space for them to grow.
