OrganicLawns has environmentally friendly weed treatment and control solutions that take weeds out at the root, leaving your yard fresh and lush.
OrganicLawns is proud to offer some of the best weed control products on the market. It’s critical to learn the difference between the two main weed-control treatments: pre-emergent and post-emergent.
Pre-emergent products stop certain weeds or grassy weeds from occurring, which essentially puts up an invisible barrier or shield that prevents weeds from growing at all.
Post-emergent products eliminate common weeds that have sprouted and need to be controlled upon visual inspection or seasonal timing.
We believe it is imperative to use an integrated pest management (IPM) strategy when controlling weeds in a lawn. If weeds are your main concern, then your lawn care program should not cut corners with weed control products. We only use premium control products that will curtail common Maryland weeds within a few hours of application and attack the weed’s root zone immediately. This ability prevents them from coming back.

There are various types of grass that are common in Maryland. These grass types include:
Our most popular type of grass in Maryland is easily turf type tall fescue. The reason is that in the various counties that we service such as Anne Arundel County, Baltimore County, and even Harford County they all have one thing in common. The entire state lies in what is termed as the transitional zone.
In layman’s terms, this simply means that we are in between cool season and warm-season zones. This can prove quite difficult to produce a healthy stand of grass because of the temperature variants. It’s a lot easier to produce your prototypical thick, lush green lawn if you live in a cool-season zone. The grass is much happier to produce desired results and has less stress in because the summers are much less harsh and the growing season produces more tolerant temperatures day to day
Bluegrass is also a very popular grass variety and many chose this type because it is very durable. Bluegrass is well known as a cool season grass and performs unbelievably in the northern states. It, however can easily handle our harsh cold winters and will respectively perform well in our hot summers also. There is something to be said about a beautiful Kentucky bluegrass lawn!
Ryegrass is also known as a cool season grass and has some incredible attributes. I love the fact that ryegrass germinates so very quickly. It can establish in as little as 3-5 days with proper growing conditions. This is one of my favorite types of grass due primarily to the fact that the growers have developed high quality cultivars of this grass that gives it improved disease resistance, drought resistance and also a darker and greener color.
Zoysia grass is very popular because of one wonderful quality. It stops weeds in their tracks! This grass naturally fends off weeds because of its thickness and growing quality’s. Once you have a stand of grass using zoysia grass there is very little maintenance needed to keep weeds far far away. It is considered a warm season style grass and traditionally is grown in the south. It actually performs very well in Maryland and has only one major flaw. It is entirely brown for half of the growing season. The reason it turns brown is because of dormancy and when the temperatures dip below optimum the grass shuts down and protects itself leaving the homeowner with a straw like front yard.
The various types of products to kill weeds are vast. We like to take a more long-term approach rather than choosing one product over another. What is actually best for the environment is a question we ask ourselves every day.
OrganicLawns is aware that if one truly understands why a weed is germinating in the first place perhaps you can stop it from happening. If you really take a minute to consider this then you’ll soon realize that Mother Nature will fight most of the battle for you.
Weeds thrive in areas in your lawn that are bare, have some moisture and also have a temperature that is conducive to germination.
If you take the time to plant a stand of grass that is so incredibly thick your problematic weed will in essence have no room to sprout in the first place. This is imperative when you analyze your lawn.
It’s very important to consider having those troubled areas assessed and fixed before the spring season is underway. Fill the bare area with thick, lush grass and your weed problems will be washed away.
If you have existing weeds in your turf it’s very important to raise your mowing height to a minimum of 4 inches for best practice and Mother Nature will again fight most of our battles for us. If all else fails use a product for post-emergent control that is productive and applied correctly.
