Types of Weeds

Below is a list of common types of weeds that may affect your property and when they tend to be in season:

  • Annual Bluegrass: Forms dense patches that can survive close mowing. Germination tends to occur in early spring and late summer.
  • Black Medic: Often appears from May through September in dry soil and high-phosphorus soil.

  • Common Chickweed: Thrives in shady, moist areas.
  • Clover: Often appears between May and September.
  • Crabgrass: Thrives from early spring throughout the summer
  • Curly Dock: Grows especially well when the area is suffering from hot and dry weather.
  • Dandelion: Often appear in early spring and continues to thrive through summer into fall.
  • Foxtail: Tends to germinate when soil temperatures reach 65 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Ground Ivy: Tends to grow in shady and poorly drained areas from April through June.
  • Mouse-Ear Chickweed: Tends to thrive in spring and early summer in poorly drained, shady spots.
  • Henbit: A winter annual weed that blooms in springtime.
  • Oxalis: Sometimes appears as a cumbersome creeping vine.
  • Purslane: Tends to grow well in hot, dry weather, spreading in a sprawling manner.

Treatments We Offer

At Midwest Lawn Co, we can help you with any aspect of weed control, including:

  • Prevention: Before and throughout the growing season, we strive to prevent weeds from springing up, which can also help desired plants to have continued growth.
  • Control: Some weeds will arise, which we will control as early and as effectively as possible. The treatment times for these weeds depends on the outside temperature. We strive to time our treatments to be as effective as possible.
  • Maintenance: Through the use of fertilizer, we can maintain positive growth in your lawn, especially during the hot summer months.
  • Seasonal Preparation: Later in the season, we will want to work to promote root development and prepare your property to stay healthy during the winter so it can come alive again in the spring.

Whether you need help with just one or all of these tasks, Midwest Lawn Co is standing by and ready to assist you.

Frequently Asked Questions

There are some common questions that our customers ask us about the process of maintaining their lawns. Below are some typical questions and answers.

How much will it cost to maintain my property?

Every property and every lawn is different. We will need more information before we can provide you with a quote for the amount it will take to properly service your property. We are pleased to offer free quotes for our services, so do not hesitate to reach out to us to learn more.

I am worried about chemicals used to treat weeds. Are your treatments safe?

The products we apply to treat weeds are used according to the requirements that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires. When used at the proper concentration, the products are considered to essentially be non-toxic. Typically, the treatments we use are available to consumers as well as professionals. Scientific studies have not shown that lawn care products cause diseases or other medical issues.

Why are multiple treatments necessary to kill weeds?

The weeds listed above tend to fall into two categories. One is broadleaf weeds, such as clover, henbit, and dandelion, that tend to grow in cooler temperatures. The other major category is grassy weeds, such as crabgrass, that grow in warmer temperatures. The different types of weeds require different chemicals that only work when the temperatures are correct to control the plants. Broadleaf weeds require cooler temperatures to see results, while warmer temperatures are necessary to control grassy weeds.

How long should I wait to water or cut the grass after a weed treatment?

After an application of weed killer, we recommend that you wait at least 24 hours before watering your grass. That said, an application should be given a chance to soak into the soil through watering or rain within a week of the application. After the application of product has been watered into the soil, your grass can be cut at any time.

When can I go back on my lawn after weeds have been treated?

When the application has dried, it is safe to use your lawn as usual.

What if it rains right after a weed control application?

Whether weed control products will work depends on several factors, including how soon it rained and for how long. If weeds on your property do not begin to die within seven to ten days of an application of weed control due to rain, please contact us.

Why does it look like an area of my lawn was burned by a weed control application?

It may appear as if the products used to treat weeds caused your grass to be burned. However, this is unlikely. What is more typical is that as more drastic temperature changes happen from cooler spring weather to warmer summer weather, a common disease known as leaf blight may occur. This can cause an appearance as if your grass was bleached out. Typically, leaf blight will resolve fairly quickly on its own. If you ever have questions about this or any other lawn disease, please call us so we can advise you about how to address the situation.

How long does it take for weeds to die after an application?

Most weeds will start to die within a week to ten days of the application of weed control. However, if you do not see weeds starting to wilt within this time frame, please contact us so that we can discuss the next steps.
