For most of us, weeds aren’t really a problem during the colder months. Sure, you’ve got a few winter annuals popping up on your roadside, but your grass is dormant and the winter weeds will disappear when the heat comes back.
Grass along a roadside.Your real problem is what lies beneath the surface. You can’t see spring and summer broadleafs, but it’s only a matter of time. By April, weeds will have made a solid foothold into your turf and created a strong competition for your Bermuda. Not only will this affect the aesthetics of your roadside, but over time, can decrease the efficiency of water runoff and drainage. Instead of waiting for your weed problem to make an appearance, why not attack it while it’s still in it’s vulnerable dormancy?
Edko’s Preemergent treatment is a selective herbicide application that targets not only your existing winter weeds but attacks the summer annuals and perennials at the root while they’re still hibernating. And, as always, Edko uses brand name products such as Bayer™ Perspective®, which boasts long-term suppression of many invasive broadleaf species.
This treatment combined with selective herbicide treatments mid-year should keep your roadsides clean and maintenance efficient, making your turf almost as pretty as your budget.
