Pulling weeds to permanently remove them will make yard cleanup a cinch in the future!
Weeds are a pain. They spring up unwanted, making yard cleanup a hassle. That’s not even the worst thing about them, though. Where weeds get really annoying is their resilience. Even as your wanted plants need extra care, weeds thrive. Just when you think you’re rid of them, they poke through the ground. Are you ready to permanently get rid of these pesky plants? It’s time to give your yard cleanup a little elbow grease. Here are three reasons weeds should be pulled by hand.
- You get the entire weed. Weeds aren’t just magically re-appearing in your yard. When we see weeds coming back, even after a dedicated yard owner has tried to spray or pull them, it’s because root pieces have been left in the soil. With time, those pieces become a full-grown problem all over again. This is especially true of perennial weeds.Knowing how deep you need to dig to get the whole root can be challenging. Root sizes vary from plant to plant. Bringing in a lawn care professional can save you time and hassle.
- You protect your other plants. When you hand pull weeds, you minimize disturbance to your existing landscaping. Even if you’re careful when spraying weed killers, any movement in the air can carry fine particles to nearby plantlife. When you hand pull, you ensure that the rest of your yard – all the plants you actually do want – won’t get damaged.
- You get instant results. Weed sprays take time to work. That means you spend days looking at all those annoying weeds while you wait for it to do its job. As the weeds shrivel up, they go from headache to eyesore. Suddenly, your yard is filled with brown. Instead of waiting for chemical killers to work, you can hand pull and get instant results. As soon as the pulling is complete, your yard is restored to its full glory.
- You choose the environmentally-friendly option. Most weed killing chemicals aren’t environmentally friendly. Spraying that harsh solution all over your yard isn’t great for the earth, nor is it great for your family. Hand pulling weeds minimizes your environmental impact and keeps your yard free from chemicals that can harm kids and pets.
When you put the work in and remove weeds by hand, you get immediate, permanent results. No more waiting for a spray to work, praying it didn’t get on your nearby plantlife. No more frustration as you see that weed sprout reappear. Sometimes the simplest solution really is the best.
Now, we know this isn’t the best news. Very few of us enjoy time in the dirt hunting down root remains. That’s where a dedicated lawn care team can come in.
