The dreaded HOA letter pokes its head out of your mailbox. You already know, but you read it anyway: “You’ve got weeds. Some of them exceed our three inch limit. They’ve got to go!” You get a sinking feeling. Ugh! I’m at odds with my HOA, and I’ve got to do something about those noxious weeds.
Dealing with weeds in Tucson can be tough. It’s not only time-consuming and back-breaking, but in this desert town, it’s scorching hot—especially after the monsoon rains! But there’s hope: if we understand what weeds are and how they grow, we can prevent them altogether.
WHAT ARE WEEDS?
In order to eliminate weeds, we must understand what they are. “Weed” is not a scientific classification. Rather, weeds can be thought of as “plants in the wrong place.” They are typically hearty plants that crop up where they are not intentionally sown. Additionally, a plant is regarded as a weed if it has no value in terms of food, nutrition or beautification.
There are different types of weeds including annual, bi-annual, and perennial. Annual weeds complete their life-cycle in one year, where bi-annuals take two. Perennial weeds return every year and produce long roots.
HOW, WHEN, AND WHERE DO WEEDS GROW?
In order to eliminate weeds, we must understand how they grow. First, their seeds are always present. At any given time, hundreds if not thousands of weed seeds lie dormant under your soil. You could say they “sleep” in your soil, waiting for the right conditions to germinate. Second, weeds are not particular about where they grow. You find weeds in hard soil, loose soil, wet soil, dry soil, sunny locations, shady locations and at other places not on this list. Third, we know your weeds will tend to sprout at about the same time each year.
HOW TO ELIMINATE YOUR WEEDS, SAVE YOUR BACK, KEEP YOUR COOL
Since we know when weeds begin to grow, we can stop them before they get started. With just two pre-emergent treatments per year, one in the Spring and one in the Fall, we can cut your weed growth by 80%. Then with monthly inspection and touch up applications of post-emergent herbicides, we control weeds that germinate after our primary applications. We keep your landscape constantly clear of all pesky, annoying, noxious weeds. Your yard looks wonderful all year long.
