Now is the time!
Here’s the skinny…while we’re not calling an end to winter – the weed seeds on your property are saying it right now. The weather is unusually warm and this means all of us in the Truckee Meadows need to step up our weed control programs considerably.
Lawn maintenance requires attentive weed control.
The most effective way to control weeds is to apply pre-emergent herbicide early in the year to prevent unwanted growth from appearing. Call our helpful weed-pros to schedule your treatments this week – before the seeds on your property germinate.

Timing Weed Control
Pre-emergent herbicides only work if they are applied to your lawn before the weed’s growth period. Weeds are persistent and crafty, and managing them really is a matter of outwitting, outplaying them, and outlasting them. They come back every season, twice a year. According to garden experts across the U.S., pre-emergent fertilizers should be applied so that they activate before seasonal weeds make an appearance.
