Weed Control

Common turf weeds

Bert McCarty, Turf and Weed Control Specialist

The best defense against weeds is a dense, vigorously growing turf.  By adapting the right grass to the site and following correct cultural management, including proper fertilization, mowing, and irrigation, weeds will not be able to compete as well as with the turf.  Before deciding to use any herbicide, diagnose first why the turf is thin and weeds are invading.  Correct the basic problem of unhealthy turf before using any herbicide.  HERBICIDES ARE NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR  SOUND CULTURAL PRACTICES.
