Hand pulling is the best method to eliminating weeds. Be sure to pull the entire weed, root and all. When fertilizing, read the instructions on the back of the bag for proper fertilizing techniques.
- Use a pre-emergent, such as Preen, in the spring to keep weeds from germinating.
- Do not allow your weeds to get out of control. This creates a headache for you later.
- Read the instructions before fertilizing.
- Do not fertilize after mid-August as it will push new, tender growth just before frost.
