Weeds are really just one type of plant that we have decided shouldn't be growing in one particular place. Wild orchids growing in Hawaii are considered weeds. It's just your point of view as to what makes a weed a weed. Some weed-type plants are invasive and fast growing. Their growth habit overtakes our cultivated turf plants, depriving them of food and water. Other weeds are extremely noxious and cause problems for people if they get close them.
In the lawn, the most common weeds are just a nuisance. Most don't cause skin reactions or breathing difficulties, they just don't look good. What they're also telling us is that the lawn isn't as healthy as it should be.
The best way to prevent weeds is by maintaining a thick, healthy lawn. One Call takes the right steps, at the right time, to prevent lawn-destroyers like crabgrass and dandelions from gaining a foothold in your lawn.
Only One Call takes a 99.3% chemical-free approach to weeds with its proprietary blend of weed controller. Now you can feel more at ease while combating over 100 different weeds in a single application.
No other lawn service is as tough on crabgrass. In fact, we attack the crabgrass problem before it starts. We treat early in the spring and then again in early summer. This proactive approach effectively eliminates the crabgrass headache early in the season.
Our improved formulation is completely non staining and offers season long (120 - 160 days) control of crabgrass, goosegrass, oxalis, spurge, Poa annua and many other important turf weed species, plus it provides outstanding safety on turf and landscape ornamentals with no solvent odor.
Broadleaf weeds are generally the easiest to identify of all the weeds. They have leaves that are broad, and are generally produced in pairs or multiples, have wide, flat leaves situated on a stem. Broadleaf weeds are distinctive from grasses and sedges. Broadleaf leaves may be simple (having one leaflet, like dandelion) or compound (having more than one leaflet, like clover).
One Call's balanced fertilization with Dimension Ultra Weed Control takes care of many weeds before they become a problem. We also spot treat throughout the growing season to keep weeds from becoming a problem, and keeping your lawn beautiful and weed-free without the work and worry of doing it yourself.
