Broadleaf weeds are plants that have broad leaves and can be quite difficult to control. Some common types of weed include dandelions, plantain, ground ivy, clover, and thistle. Not only do they spread quickly but some produce seeds that grow new plants once it blooms! This is why weeding your lawn should be an ongoing process and not just a one-time project.


Weeds are tough to control since they can grow back so quickly! However, here are some tips for controlling weed growth in your lawn that will help you stay safe while still getting the job done right!

  • Pull weeds by hand whenever possible. This is a great way to remove weed growth without using any chemicals or sprays that could harm the environment and your family!
  • Use mulch as another form of weed control in areas where removing them would be difficult such as flower beds, around trees, and under decks. Mulching helps prevent sunlight from reaching weed seeds and can prevent them from growing at all!
  • Use a weeding tool to cut the roots of weeds that are too difficult to remove by hand. Look for one with multiple blades or serrated edges so it cuts through tough weeds easily.
  • Prevent toxic weeds in your lawn before they start! Be sure to keep your lawn well-watered and mow your lawn regularly to help prevent weeds from growing.


Grass weeds are plants that have grass-like leaves but can be just as tough to control! These types of weed include annual bluegrass, goosegrass, crabgrass, and ryegrass. Annuals are cool season grasses that grow in the spring and can be controlled by applying pre-emergent weed control to your lawn. Warm season grass weeds like crabgrass, goosegrass, Bahia are best treated with post-emergent herbicides!


There are several ways in eliminating weeds in your lawn. Here are some of the most effective methods for controlling weeds!

  • Use a pre-emergent weed killer during the springtime when cool season grass weeds grow. These types of chemicals work by preventing seeds from ever germinating and can prevent annuals like bluegrass, crabgrass, goosegrass, and other weeds from growing at all!
  • Applying post-emergent organic weed control to your lawn during the summer will help kill any weeds that may be starting to grow. Look for one with active ingredients like glyphosate or glufosinate so it kills any type of weed quickly and effectively! Be sure to read instructions carefully before use and always use as directed!
  • In addition to keeping your lawn well-watered, mow it regularly. This will help prevent any weed seeds from germinating and growing new weeds in the first place. Also, avoid over-fertilizing since this can trigger more weed growth instead of grass!

Keeping a healthy lawn with good soil is one way to control weeds. Try to keep your lawn as healthy as possible and it will stay weed-free!
