- Broadleaf Weeds
- Broadleaf weeds include a large variety of plant pests that are distinctly not grass-like. Weeds like chickweed, dandelions, ragweed, clover, hawkweed, oxalis, etc. are guaranteed to be kept under control with Second Nature’s lawn care programs. These weeds are usually great at out-competing turf grasses for resources because they grow faster and are generally more resilient to environmental stress.
- Wild Violets
- Wild violets are a difficult-to-control broadleaf weed that doesn’t really react to many different control measures that can be used effectively on other types of weeds. They prefer shady areas, but can grow almost anywhere and tend to flourish once they’ve taken hold.
- Second Nature can control wild violets using similar methods to nutsedge control. Repeat paid treatments every 2-3 weeks for 1-3 months can usually eliminate wild violet infestations (except in extreme cases), but if given a chance they can bounce back from near death easily so it is important to stay right on top of them when trying to eliminate them.
- “Difficult-to-Control” Grassy Weeds
- Nutsedge or “nut grass”
- Nutsedge is a highly invasive, fast growing, resilient weed that has spread to over 90 countries. There are several varieties of nutsedge, and they are all difficult to control.
- Nutsedge sprouts underground tubers that connect existing nutsedge plants and even spawn new ones.
- Second Nature can help control nutsedge infestations and limit spread, but it is very difficult to completely eradicate. Usually paid treatments every 2-3 weeks are needed for 1-3 months in order to eliminate nutsedge in your lawn. Even after complete elimination, some nutsedge will likely appear next year due to the underground network of tubers.
