A common weed to see in the lawn in Acworth, Ga in mid to late spring is Fireweed. Fireweed is a quick growing weed that may seem like a huge threat at first because it can pop up in a short amount
of time and in great numbers, However this is a very easy to eliminate weed. As a part of our Acworth, Ga lawn care program we monitor and treat as needed for Fireweed as well as other broadleaf type of weeds. Unfortunately Fireweed is one of those weeds that the the Pre-Emergent applications applied in Fall and early spring normally will not usually prevent, due to the fact that Fireweed is able to grow above the pre-emergent barrier and in the thatch layer. To help minimize Fireweed in the lawn we recommend mowing weekly during the growing season. Fireweed is unable to root well in lawns.. Between regular weekly mowings and summer heat this weed is a short lived problem. The summer heat usually will burn it out pretty quick. For our current Acworth, Ga Lawn Care customers we monitor and treat for Fireweed and other broadleaf weeds with each visit.
