What are Weeds?
 a wild plant growing where it is not wanted and in competition with cultivated plants
Why Do We Have Weeds? Weeds are usually a good sign of poor soil quality. Weeds are plants that let you know when weather, soil, light or other lawn maintenance programs are wrong. Dry, wet and compacted soils all encourage weed growth, where as grass struggles in these conditions. If left unchecked, weeds will start seeding, spreading and multiplying throughout your lawn. Conventional Weed Control For the past few decades, home owners have relied on commercial herbicides and pesticides. Unfortunately, these products have destroyed more than just the weeds and pests. Herbicides, pesticides and synthetic fertilizers have depleted our soils of crucial beneficial microorganisms, thus leaving our properties more susceptible to disease, drought stress, as well as pest and weed infestation, all of which are obvious signs of unbalanced soils. Conventional lawn care companies are now faced with many new problems, like weed control. Many new products on the market today have not been proven to as effective as conventional herbicides once were. Plant It Earth has never used herbicides in our programs. Our proven all-natural programs will provide your lawn with all the essential nutrients and life needed to promote proper plant function and vigorous root growth. When our programs are in place, your lawn will naturally out compete weeds for nutrients, thus choking out unwanted weeds. Plant It Earth’s Natural Weed Control Natural weed control is actually quite easy and inexpensive. All you need is healthy soil, healthy grass, and proper lawn maintenance. Our programs help create healthy balanced soil in your lawn, using high quality all natural nutrients and organics. By slowly introducing a balance of beneficial soil organisms, along with quality organics and nutrients, your lawn will naturally take care of itself. Healthy well established lawns will naturally choke out any invasive weeds. Typically, conventional lawn care programs focus on the top growth(blade) of your grass, generally not the root system, and very rarely, if at all, the soil. The fact is, by focusing on the soil health and structure, we can easily achieve more established, healthier root systems than we ever thought possible. Organic lawn care encourages healthy, deep root systems, which in turn, creates a healthier, greener, thicker, more resilient lawn. In time, your property will, in fact, be more drought, disease, pest and weed tolerant.

Types of Weeds There are generally three types of common weed plants in regards to their growing characteristics. These include: Annual weeds germinate and spread by seed, having an average lifespan of one year. Biennial weeds complete their life cycle in two years, germinating and forming rosettes their first year and producing flowers and seeds their second year. Perennial weeds return every year and normally produce long tap roots and are the most difficult to control.

Proper Lawn Care Is The Best Medicine When your lawn is stressed, it's ripe for takeover by weeds. A few simple steps can protect it. Deep Watering: Watering deeply and infrequently helps your lawn compete by encouraging deeper root growth. Set your lawn mower higher: Mowing at the proper height, usually one of the 2 highest setting on your mower, helps the grass grow thick to shade weed seeds, so it's harder for them to grow. Proper Feeding: Feeding at regularly, like every 6-8 weeks during the growing season with Eco TEA, helps your lawn thicken up and fill in bare spots, making them less welcoming to weeds. Over Seeding Over seeding is not just a good way to establish more grass, it's actually one the best natural ways to control and prevent weeds from invading your lawn. To have a virtually weed free lawn, we encourage hand weeding, as it provides the quickest and longest lasting results. Pull weeds before they go to seed, or spot treat them with water and vinegar. Watering or moistening the soil makes pulling weeds a lot easier. Sometimes pulling weeds by hand can leave bare spots, so be sure to apply grass seed in these spots. Weed Prevention Annual grassy weeds, like crabgrass, can be prevented in the spring so they don't become a problem in the summer. Reduce weed growth by eliminating open space Adding mulch will prevent light from getting to weed seeds and prevents growth. Manual control of common weed plants can be accomplished through hand pulling, hoeing or digging. Natural weed control Generally, invasive weeds are well worth the trouble of removal. However, some weeds can actually be quite attractive in the garden, so why not consider allowing them to stay. This more natural weed control method results in a lush native environment when given their own designated spot. Some of these ‘good weeds’ include: Joe-pye weed – tall stems of vanilla-scented rose-colored flower Chicory – brilliant blue flowers Hawkweed – daisy-like blooms on fuzzy stems Queen Anne’s lace – lacy white, umbrella-shaped flower heads Of course, which weed goes and which weed stays depends on the individual gardener, and some weeds look nice and help to reverse the dwindling bee population.
