Property Projects That Will Make Your Shrine Shine

Home improvement projects are a great way to increase the eye appeal of your property, and even to increase its value. But this doesn't mean that you have to invest in costly remodeling projects or new constructions. A simple paint job (using the right colors) and some landscaping projects are just a couple of effective ways to make your home shine. As a property manager, I understand first hand what it takes to set a home apart from the neighboring crowd – so I started this blog in hopes that I can inspire others to plan their own fun projects in and around their homes. Let this site be your guide to a new and improved palace!

Tips To Use Your Yard And Landscaping Herbicide

As soon as the weather begins to warm up, your lawn and perennial plants will begin to sprout from out of the soil but so will the weeds. Here are some herbicide recommendations for you to most effectively treat your yard and landscaping to get rid of weeds.

Select the Right Type of Herbicide

There are several different types of weed-killer herbicides that you can choose to use in your yard to control and eliminate weeds. The type of weed you are trying to eliminate and where it is growing will help you choose the right weed killer. 

If you are treating an entire area of weeds that is growing in one continuous patch of soil, you can use a non-selective systemic weed killer. This type of herbicide will kill any vegetation growth, whether it is dandelions, morning glory, yellow nutsedge, or crabgrass, and it will kill the entire plant down to the roots. Be careful that you don't spray this type of weed killer onto the soil if you plan to plant vegetation in the area because it will prevent growth for the season. 

You may sometimes need to treat an area of weed growth that is growing within your existing lawn or flower beds. You will need to treat this type of weed growth with a careful and steady hand so you don't spray the weed killer on surrounding vegetation. If you have weeds growing in your lawn, be sure to use a broadleaf herbicide that will only treat non-grass vegetation

Apply the Treatment Effectively

There are several ways you can apply a treatment of non-selective and selective herbicides. Look for a spray herbicide that you can use in a pump sprayer to direct it onto specific and individual weeds. Spray the herbicide on the surfaces of the weed, but don't overuse the herbicide. If you use more herbicide that is needed to cover the weed, you are only wasting the excess that drips onto the surrounding soil.

If you use a granular herbicide, be sure the weeds are wet so the product will stick onto the leaves and stem to be most effective. Also, give the herbicide time to work and begin killing the weed. Some weeds will begin to die within a few hours but some can take several days to begin dying. Wait a few days before you reapply the herbicide if you need to follow up with a second treatment for large and mature weeds.
