Virginia Buttonweed in Acworth, Ga

Proper cultural practices can help minimize virginia buttonweed in the lawn. Watering deeply at 1 inch per week can help promote a deep root system of your lawn which can help the turf grass better compete with Virginia Buttonweed and many other problem weeds in your lawn in Acworth, Ga.  Frequent mowing would also be very helpful in minimizing this and other weeds in the lawn.  We recommend mowing within the recommended height for your turf type, and be sure to never remove more than 1/3 of the grass blade at a time with each mowing. Mowing your lawn every 2 weeks is a common mistake we see many of our customers make who are on lawn care programs in Acworth, Ga.   Use care when mowing so that you are not scalping areas of the lawn. These scalped areas of the lawn will be more prone to future weed infestations. Keeping a thick, healthy lawn will be the key to keeping weeds to a minimum.

There are many products out there for post emergent control of Virginia Buttonweed that have proven to keep buttonweed minimized by 80 to 90 percent.
