Achieving an equally healthy and weed-free lawn in Florida means fertilization and weed control should always go hand in hand! Fertilizer provides the nutrients your grass needs to grow strong and healthy, but without weed control, that nourishment will also go to any existing weeds; this leads to them becoming bigger and your turf becoming weaker. On the other hand, if you only apply weed control without fertilization, you'll have a weed-free lawn, but it may lack precious nutrients that keep it in good shape; this can cause it to turn brown and become more susceptible to other issues, like diseases and insects. By combining these two lawn care services, you can ensure it maximizes the fertilizer applications without having to compete with pesky weeds!

What happens if you fertilize your lawn without weed control?

Fertilization is essential for providing all the nutrients your lawn needs to bolster healthy, strong, vibrant growth. However, the same goes for weeds. When you fertilize without using weed control, the nutrients won't just go to your grass but also any existing weeds. As a result, they'll become bigger and stronger while your turf becomes weaker since it isn't getting the most out of the fertilizer applications and has to focus its energy on fighting these pesky nutrient thieves.

Some common weeds in Florida include crabgrass, spurge, clover, nutsedge, and doveweed.

What happens if you use weed control without fertilization?

Weed control is another vital lawn care service that helps manage the weed population on your lawn. While it's highly beneficial, it doesn't provide any nourishment the way fertilizers do. So, when you apply weed control without fertilization, you'll have a weed-free lawn, but it may lack precious nutrients that keep it healthy and pristine. Without them, it can become weaker, turn brown, and have trouble staving off other stressors, such as diseases and insects.

Always Pair Fertilization & Weed Control Together for a Healthy, Weed-Free Lawn

If you want to boast an equally healthy and weed-free lawn, pairing fertilization and weed control together is the way to achieve it! Utilizing both will ensure your grass can maximize the nutrients from the fertilizer applications, and there won't be any competition with pesky weeds. Not only will this keep it at its healthiest, but it also boosts its visual appeal! After all, a well-nourished lawn is bright and green, and there are no weeds to make it look messy. When you combine fertilization and weed control, you can rest easy knowing your turf will have everything it needs to flourish throughout the year.
