Don’t Let Your Yard Ruin Your Summer

Summer brings many wonderful things! No school, laying by the pool, and pulling weeds! Maybe not all parts of Arizona summers are all that great, but if you are like most people, you do NOT want to spend your free time this summer in the blazing hot sun on your hands and knees trying to get rid of those nasty weeds that always seem to come back no matter what you do.

Weeds are dormant plants that can wait months and sometimes even years before the right conditions bring them to life, and monsoons can be a part of those right conditions.

There are a couple of options when it comes to getting rid of the weeds.

  1. Organic Option- There is always the option to get outside on your hands and knees in the blazing hot sun and pull out all of the weeds by yourself. If this is your preferred option, make sure to pull all of the weeds in your yard. If there is just one weed left over, they can spread like crazy and the chance of them coming back is very high. Along the same lines, weeds re-grow quickly if the root is still in tact, so it is important when pulling them to make sure that you pull the entire root as well. If any part of the root still remains in the ground, the weed will start to grow back and you will have to keep pulling weeds all summer long.
  2. Chemical- If you are still wanting to get rid of the weeds yourself, there are many different brands of chemical spray that you can buy at your local hardware store. It is important to make sure that you buy the right kind of spray for the type of weeds and yard that you have in order to get the best results. If you listen to the radio, there have been ads going for years about Roundup and other related products causing health problems, cancer, and death. So if you choose to go that route, make sure you read the label and wear the proper PPE to protect your skin from absorbing overspray or exposing yourself from misuse.
  3. Weed Services- Green Machine offers Weed Treatment that entails a couple of steps that ensure your weed problem disappears.
  • Prep: Cut the weeds, using a weed whacker or mower, to ankle height or lower.
  • Treatment: We use a mixture of pre-emergent and post-emergent to take down weeds like an MMA prize fighter. Post-emergent kills any weeds that are already protruding through the ground. Pre-emergent soaks into the soil and prevents any weeds from growing for 3 months. With our powerful product combination, your weed issues will disappear, leaving your yard in pristine condition!
  • Maintenance: Weed treatments break down over time. So have your yard treated at least twice a year to keep it in great shape.

We know that weeds are a nuisance. Don’t fight it alone. Summer is a time to relax and not worry about the little things in life! Let Green Machine help make your life easier! Call for your free quote today! (480) 331-1009
