The number one reason why homeowners hire professional companies like Genie Green to take care of their lawns, is weed control. Because of this, we work hard to eliminate weeds from your lawn. Modern technology has allowed us to use chemical weed controls that differentiate between grasses and broadleaf weeds. The best time of the year to apply weed control is in the spring and the fall. During the summer, chemical weed controls are not very effective because of the summer heat. In order to conserve water, plants close their pores allowing less moisture to escape. Since most weed controls enter the plants through the plant’s pores, it is more difficult to get the weed control into the plant when it is hot. It is for this reason that we hand spray individual weeds with weed control during the summer months.
Below is a listing of common weeds in the Salt Lake Valley with links to more information about each weed. Additionally, feel free to ask our employees any questions you have about weeds. As we develop our website, we will provide our own information and pictures about weeds. Until that time, we will provide links to other free websites about individual weeds.
