Anyone who lives in Arizona understands the joys of dealing with weeds – almost any time of year. In fact, some homeowners enjoy weeds all year round. Many homeowners armed with their weed killer spray spend their weekends applying post emerge herbicide to get their yard back. Other homeowners decide to spend their weekends on hands and knees for their weed control by yanking the unwanted visitors from the ground, only to have to repeat this action every other week. I just pulled them!!, is what a husband may be telling his wife when she lets him know that the weeds have returned. One of the things that I have learned is when homeowners pull their own weeds they typically have more weed issues due to dropping seeds from the existing weed as it leaves your yard. Frustrating? Yep!!
In the Phoenix area, I recommend a pre-emergent herbicide to be utilized annually which will help greatly in your struggles for yard superiority. A pre-emergent herbicide is not a weed killer, however it is applied to the soil under the rock cover and helps prevent seeds from germinating. Applying the pre-emergent correctly is absolutely a necessity and following label directions will ensure you get the best results possible.
So you have used a pre-emergent herbicide and now you no longer have the need for post-emergent herbicides, right? Not likely. You should notice a significant reduction in the amount of those weed killer sprays you have to go out and buy however, over time with a consistent weed management program consisting of a pre-emergent herbicide once a year and routine maintenance about every other month with post-emergent herbicides, your frustrations of unwanted guests popping up in your yard will start to become a thing in the past.
