When hiring TML to wage war on weeds in your lawn, you’re bringing in not just well trained technicians but veterans with a lifetime of experience. We know what we’re up against. With that knowledge, we use various selective herbicides at various times of the year to address the full range of problem weeds. Obviously, the main challenge is to eliminate these weeds without damaging your lawn.
Because we have to go easy on your desirable turf, the toughest weeds have to be treated multiple times to eradicate them altogether. Think of it like a boxing match where it may take many rounds to take down a venerable contender. That’s the case when it comes to Ground Ivy (also called Creeping Charlie) and especially Wild Violets. So you don’t have unrealistic expectations for a quick solution for these worst weeds, I want you to know it can take years to effectively rid your lawn of these intruders. It’s especially difficult when they grow in full sun and dense turf. Both wild violets and ground ivy are more responsive to treatment when in bloom in the spring and fall. Also a stronger chemical formulation can be used at these times when it’s cooler. Effective treatment is primarily a matter of consistently taking advantage of these opportunities over multiple seasons.
Take courage, TML has a proven track record of winning the battle with the worst weeds for everyone who stays with our program for the long haul.
