Secrets of a weed killer: Keep your yard weed-free this summer
Locate resources for weed killer in Atlanta
By Kelly Sundstrom
As warm weather approaches, so do the weeds in your freshly manicured yard. At first, you might try to pull them out, one by one. But eventually, you look up to see that you have a long way to go before all the weeds are gone. Save yourself the backache by hiring a landscaping professional in the Atlanta area to do the work for you. Landscapers can use the best weed killer on the market to clear away weeds without harming the rest of your lawn.
Types of weed killers
There are different types of herbicides that your landscaper can apply. Before you hire someone, ask them what they typically use. You might worry about spraying herbicide all over your lawn, especially if you have young children and pets that run around the yard. Your landscaping professional should be able to tell you what kind of weed killer they use and whether or not it's safe for your family.
Will it cost a fortune?
Many people avoid calling a landscaper because they think that it will cost them an arm and a leg. Not true! In fact, you might even notice that many of your neighbors already use one. Ask if they treat by the square footage, and how often you will need to retreat in order to keep the weeds away. If you only need to have a landscaper come out once a month using top-of-the-line weed killer, it may end up saving you more money than if you have your yard treated once a week using lower-grade products.
Not just for weeds
If you decide to hire landscaping pros, consider having them give your lawn a face-lift while you are treating the weeds. Landscapers can beautify your yard by clearing away undergrowth, laying down mulch, placing boulders and stones and planting decorative foliage and flora. Ask your Atlanta landscaper to come out and evaluate your yard.
