Weed Seeds

Lawn weeds are the No. 1 thing that’s not on any homeowner’s wish list. No one wants to endure the battle of the annual bluegrass or the invasion of creeping Charlie. Weeds find their way into your yard through many means. Wind, birds, your lawnmower and even your feet can ferry weed seeds. The soil itself contains weed seeds, many of which remain viable for over 50 years. The question isn’t if you’ll have weeds to deal with, but rather when weeds will appear.
