The exterior of your property is the first thing that visitors and guests see—so making a good impression on them is important, right? If your lawn is riddled with weeds and looks unsightly, then that’s probably not going to help much with that good impression.

Weeds can plague your yard and soil to the point of killing off plants and grass as they choke them out and steal valuable resources like light and air. Read for reasons why you should use weed control and the benefits of a regular weed control treatment schedule in Buffalo, Lancaster, East Amherst, and surrounding areas in New York.


Getting Rid of Weeds Gives Back Valuable Nutrients, Light, & Air to Your Trees, Plants, & Grass

Weeds tend to grow much more quickly than landscape plants, trees, and grass. This means your plants lose the race to needed nutrients like potassium, nitrogen, and phosphorus as well as light, air, and water as the weeds grow and choke them out.

Losing these nutrients makes your plants weaker and more susceptible to diseases and insect infestations. Weeds can also leave an imbalance of nutrients in the soil which can affect the growth of your trees, plants, and grass.

Weeds can spread quickly through their seeds, meaning they can quickly overtake an entire yard.


Keeping Weeds Out of Your Yard Benefits Your Children & Household Pets

Removing weeds from your yard can help to create a safer outdoor environment for your family, friends, and guests, as well as your pets. Common weeds like clover can attract bees, which can sting your children and pets. Likewise, other flowering weeds can also attract pollinators.

Some weeds are actually poisonous, so if your household pet gets into your yard and eats them, it can cause symptoms like digestive issues, rashes, and more. Children can also be harmed by these poisonous weeds and so it’s best to work with a trained professional like Buffalo Lawn & Landscape to ensure that your yard is free from these weed-related dangers.

If you suspect you have any poisonous weeds in your yard, do not touch them. Many can cause severe rashes and a trained professional needs to apply the right treatment to kill them.
