Call Scientific Plant Service for the best Baltimore broadleaf weed control!

Broadleaf weeds are unwanted, invasive plants with notable broad leaves. Many common lawn weeds like chickweed, clover, and dandelions belong to this group of plants. The wider leaves, netted veins, and occasional snowy flowers make these weeds stand out against your turf and can quickly disrupt your landscape. If you are concerned about weed growth, contact Scientific Plant Service for experienced Baltimore broadleaf weed control. Scientific Plant Service has provided dependable services to Baltimore property owners since 1957. In addition to weed control, we provide pest and animal management, deer repellant, aquatic care, aeration and seeding, tree and shrub care, and athletic field maintenance.

Contact Scientific Plant Service when you are ready to learn more about our high-quality weed control services. 

What Causes Weed Growth? 

Several variables can contribute to increased weed growth. For example, if your lawn does not receive enough nitrogen, it may become susceptible to invasive weeds. Furthermore, weeds thrive in properties consistently mowed too short (less than three inches). If you wish to check the nutrient levels in your lawn, arrange for a soil test to see whether extra nitrogen is required. Maintaining proper nutrient levels in the soil is one of the best ways to keep your lawn healthy and free from invasive weeds, pests, and diseases. 

Why Preventative Baltimore Broadleaf Weed Control Is Best

Broadleaf weeds are unwanted plants with wide leaves. They have characteristics that make them easily distinguishable but also make them stick out against your turf. As with all weeds, the best way to prevent weed growth is to take measures to keep them off your lawn in the first place. 

A pre-emergent herbicide application will keep broadleaf weed seeds from sprouting and establishing roots in your lawn. It is significantly easier to avoid weed growth than to manage it after it has occurred.

If you do not manage the weeds in your lawn, broadleaf weeds will continue to grow and spread over your yard. As weeds expand, they compete for nutrients with your turf. Therefore, your lawn may suffer more damage as broadleaf weeds develop and spread.

The 3-Step Weed and Feed System at Scientific Plant Service

Our 1-2-3 Weed and Feed System is an important aspect of our Baltimore broadleaf weed control services at Scientific Plant Service. Pre-emergent herbicides and fertilizers are used in this treatment to prevent weeds and promote healthy grass development. The three steps are as follows: 

  1. POLYON slow-release nitrogen fertilizer is applied. Pre-emergent weed management is used concurrently to prevent weeds from germinating. 
  2. Broadleaf weed growth peaks in late April. At that point, we return to apply further weed control. To protect your healthy grass, we only spray areas where weeds are active. 
  3. When the stress of summer is over, we inspect your lawn for weeds and apply a fall fertilizer to prepare your property for spring. 

This all-year preventive treatment can help keep broadleaf weeds at bay in your lovely Baltimore landscape. Scientific Plant Service ensures that broadleaf weeds will be controlled in your lawn for the entire season. If weeds emerge, please call our office so that we can eradicate the problem areas. When you are ready to take advantage of our complete Baltimore broadleaf weed control, contact Scientific Plant Service.
