Weed, Insect and Disease Control
The best defense against weed infestation is maintaining a dense, vigorous, high-quality turf. While implementing cultural practices to maximize turfgrass quality (proper mowing, fertility, pest management, etc.) will reduce the likelihood of weed infestations, herbicide applications are often required for complete control.
