Buffalo Lawn and Landscape offers weed control for your lawn. Here is a rundown of common weeds you’ll find in your yard.
Dandelion. This undervalued plant becomes a weed when it sprouts up in the middle of your lawn. It is, however, a very valuable food sources for early bees foraging for their first spring mean. Time your weed control of dandelions to correspond with other flowers blooming so that bees have other food sources.
Chickweed. Chickweed is a seasonal ground covering weed that grows in a net-like pattern over bare spots and well, anywhere it can take root. Birds love to eat it so leave some in a back corner if you like but get it out of your flower beds or it will take over.
Nightshade. Nightshade is a family of plants that include potatoes and eggplant, but the type that grows in your garden is not only not edible, it’s poisonous. The unripe berries are extremely toxic but even touching the leaves can be dangerous so if you see this in your yard, use gloves to pull it out be the root and dispose of it carefully.
Broadleaf Plantain. While plantain is of historic and medicinal significance since it was medieval monks to heal wounds, the colloquial definition of a weed is that any plant that grows where you don’t want it is a weed, so plantain coming up in the middle of a lawn is a weed.
