Weeds growing in the lawn or garden come with a headache to people as they can entirely spoil the aesthetics of the home. On a further note, it is quite hard to control as well, especially the ones growing in the rambling green area of the property. So, instead of just suffering from a weed-infected property, the wiser decision to make is to apply effective weed and termite control treatments.
However, there are certain tips of consideration before applying such kinds of treatments and an overview of the same is given.
Applying in the Right Time
Weed killers in general, are highly efficient when weeds actively growing, which is usually in between the time period of March-September. It is so because, in that particular time span, the solution gets more space or area surface to get absorbed. On a further note, it is not so advisable for using weed killers in drought conditions, when such weeds are not growing actively. On dry days, it is ideal to water the surface regularly before applying the weed killer.
Applying in the Right Area
Make use of weed killers in silent weather conditions for avoiding spray drifting on the desirable plants. While making use of such sprays near plants one wants to keep, it is ideal to use a big piece of card for protecting the surrounding plants. One can also cut the bottom and top of a big soft drink container for forming a cylinder over the weeds and thereby spraying down the weed control treatment to encircled weeds only.
Using Weed Killers with a Biodegradable Formula
In case, one wants to replant the area after clearing the weeds, it is best to use weed killers containing a biodegradable formula, which breaks down into simpler natural materials present in the soil. Another area of usage is for clearing the vegetable patches before sowing or planting.
Choosing the Best Formulation
It is ideal to use the best size and formulation for applying in the affected area. Make usage of such formulations that are convenient and simple, which do not need to measure or mix it further. For a larger area surface, the concentrated formulations, which come in pre-measured soluble packets, are certainly an easy, clean and economical solution after applying it with a sprayer or watering can.
