Determining Tolerance level for weedsweed2

Weeds in your landscape are nothing less than an eye sore; however, it is practically impossible to remove them entirely, as they flourish repeatedly even in hostile conditions. Therefore, it is advisable that you determine the degree or threshold of your tolerance level with respect to weeds. Once you decide what would be your tolerance level, you can come up to next the step: action plan.

Basic methods of weed control: 

  • Manual Pulling
    Manually pulling, the oldest way to remove undesirables is still in practice. Many gardeners stick to this method when the surface is not large. The process involves removing or pulling weeds out of the ground by hand. In this method, you need to make sure that the roots are also pulled out; otherwise, they will re-sprout, and will bloom with same vigor. Unearthing weeds eventually weakens and kills them; however, it needs persistence effort.
  • Application of weed killer or herbicides
    It is the easiest and the most effective method, which involves spraying herbicide, a toxic chemical to destroy unwanted vegetation, on weeds. Whether they are at sprouting stage or already grown up into herb. The taller weeds that are sprayed will eventually turn brown and are required to be pulled out. However, whatever the stage is herbicide will make sure that you get rid of them.

What you need to Know before using a Product
The first thing that you need to know is the effectiveness of a weed killer on a specific weed. Before applying any weed killer, read the label, pay attention to safety precautions and pollinator information.

There are two types of weed killer: selective weed killers and Non-selective weed killers

  • Selective weed killers work only on certain types of weeds. For example, for lawn care, a product is available that is used specifically for dandelions; it will kill dandelions only, leaving all other weeds intact.
  • Non-selective weed killers eradicate green plant, irrespective of the species or family. Therefore, it is more of absolute killer, which kills without any preference. These products will kill both the weeds and the grass.

When you are using herbicides, makes sure that you use them when weeds are not matured or are young. The earlier weeds are controlled, the better.
