To maintain a pristine lawn free from weeds, taking a proactive approach is key. By applying pre-emergent herbicides, you can effectively prevent weed seeds from germinating and spoiling the appearance of your lawn. Act preemptively to keep those unsightly weeds at bay and preserve the beauty of your outdoor space.

Pre-emergent herbicides effectively hinder the division of seed cells, halting the growth of weeds in their tracks. By depriving weed seeds of vital nutrients and establishing a chemical barrier in the upper layer of soil, these herbicides prevent the emergence of weeds and impede root development. This powerful action ensures that weeds are unable to thrive and compete with desired plants.

Pre-emergent herbicides can be selective or non-selective.

  • Selective herbicides specifically target certain weeds, making them suitable for use in areas with other plants and grasses. If your yard is predominantly occupied by a single type of weed or a few types, consider using a pre-emergent herbicide that can prevent the growth of those specific weeds. 
  • Non-selective herbicides have the power to eliminate everything in their path, including weeds, plants, and grasses. Therefore, we advise exercising caution and precision when applying such herbicides. Homeowners typically opt for non-selective herbicides when targeting specific areas like driveways.
