Our applicators have been noticing a lot of weeds in the edges of our client's lawns during this fertilizer, moss and weed control round. Almost without exception, these weeds are invading via the bordering flowerbeds in the client's landscape.

The most commonly noted are bittercriss, a small, long stalked, or branching stalk weed with small, white flower heads and oxalis, a green or purple 'clover' that produces a yellow flower and seed pods later in the season. Both of these nuisance weeds are very invasive, producing massive amounts of seeds. Pulling them by hand is counterproductive, as the roots will break off, producing multiple new plants.
 
Untreated flowerbed weeds will continue to produce new seeds, invading the lawn between applications. We cannot keep weeds out of your lawn if you do not keep your flowerbeds weed free.
 
To break this cycle it is important for residents to by proactive in treating their beds for weeds. Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Round Up, generally works fairly well. But it is important to be actively addressing the problem, spot spraying regularly to achieve good control. Some weeds aren't well controlled with this product.
