Weed Problems In A Newly Landscaped Arizona Yards

Landscaping Install Weed Problems

A newly landscaped yard or even a small area of a yard newly landscaped creates many challenges in weed control. Digging holes and trenches brings weed seeds to the surface where they thrive. Often seeds are broadleaf weeds and grasses are brought in with new dirt, rock, and plants. Soon you could have problems that you never had before.

The solution to keeping your new yard looking nice after making such a big investment is easy. Once all landscaping is finished and all gravel and plants are in place, the LAST thing to be done is to spray the yard with a chemical to prevent weed growth. It is sprayed on the entire area and once watered in will prevent those new seeds from germinating.

There is no reason to be concerned about your new plants or cactus. Pre-emergent will not harm them and if we do apply a weed kill we do not come near your new plants.

Spurge – A Common Arizona Summer Weed Problem

Spurge is a low-lying “creepy crawly” weed that is common in the summer and early fall and is a real nuisance. It thrives in areas where there is excess water draining from plants or tree wells or in areas of a yard where water does not drain or run off. If left untreated it spreads and the sticky leaves make it difficult to pull.

Our pre-emergent (weed prevention chemical) applied to infected areas annually work well to stop the growth and spread of this weed. Once watered in our chemical prevents this from returning. It is also advisable to keep water contained to plant and tree wells.

Existing spurge is also easily killed with a strong post-emergent (weed kill) herbicide. Once it is brown and dry removal is easy.
