Yes, most of us have a love/hate relationship with weeds. And at this time of the year, as our grass turns a beautiful shade of green, many of us are seeing yellow...dandelions. If you have learned to love the bright yellow "flower" that pops up out of nowhere, then you are probably taking in the beauty of it as it readily takes over your lawn. For those who see it as a weed, you are wondering "Where did my lush green grass go?"
Weeds can be a tough one to deal with. Not everyone can spend hours in their gardens or on their lawns pulling out every weed that has decided to call that area home. The difficult part can be the process and how to go about it. With children and family pets taking to the yard to enjoy the outdoors, you want to be aware of what you use in your lawn and gardens. I went searching for articles that tackle the weed situation in the safest manner possible.
I came across a couple of interesting articles. The first one looks at homemade remedies for eliminating weeds.
The 2nd bit of information that I also came across is a YouTube video from the Old Farmer's Almanac. The focus is on your garden and stopping the weeds before they even get a chance to go there.
So I hope this gives you a few ideas on how to tackle the weeds. But if you appreciate weeds for the beautiful wonders of nature they are, then just sit back and enjoy the variety that it brings to your property. If you've come to a point where the maintenance of it all has just become too much and you think it may be time to downsize, give me a call and we can sift through the market together, making sure to by-pass the "weeds" in order to find you the property that suits your needs.
