Kill Weeds, Not Lawns with Pre-Emergent and Post-Emergent Herbicides

Weeds are an unfortunate yet unavoidable yard occupant that sprout up without fail. With a proper lawn care routine, effective products, and consistent upkeep, you can rid of these pesky plants once and for all.

Pre-emergent and post-emergent herbicides have contrasting roles but ultimately work well together to effectively kill weeds and prevent future germination while saving your lawn.

Reinders carries an extensive inventory of reliable herbicides from some of the industry’s top-performing brands like BayerPBI-GordonBASFNufarmDow Agro, and Quali-Pro. With suitable weed control, you can uphold your landscaping’s integrity with attractive beauty and beneficial health.

How Pre-Emergent Herbicides Work Alongside Post-Emergent Herbicides to Ensure Weed-Free Lawns

Herbicides destroy unwanted plants and vegetation. The chemical formulations of herbicides do an excellent job of killing and preventing stubborn weeds without causing further damage or harm to the rest of your lawn or turf. There are two main types of herbicides to consider when searching for the right kind of weed control and prevention based on your needs.

Types of Herbicides

  • Selective Herbicides- Kills specific types of weeds while ensuring other plants remain unharmed.
  • Non-Selective Herbicides- Kills almost any plant, making it easy to clear areas for new gardens and planting.

The main types of herbicides can be broken down further into two categories of safe, effective weed control: pre-emergent herbicides and post-emergent herbicides.

It’s helpful to distinguish between the two to better understand how they work together to kill unwanted weeds and prevent them from returning year after year.

  • Pre-Emergent Herbicides- By practicing pre-emergent weed control, you can prevent weeds from sprouting and popping up from underneath the ground. This particular herbicide kills weeds before the seed sprouts as temperatures begin to warm in early spring.
  • Post-Emergent Herbicides- A post-emergent herbicide kills weeds that have already sprouted.  This version of post-emergent weed control ensures that pesky plants will not spread and invade the rest of your grass. Spread a post-emergent anytime between the spring and fall months.

By exploring the various types of herbicides available to achieve a beautiful, weed-free lawn, you can make a well-informed choice to prevent harm and injury to other existing plants in your garden or landscape.

Other Label Terms to Understand

Contact (topical)- Weed killers that only kill the part of the plant that the herbicide touches, which is the exterior part above the ground.

Systemic- This herbicide absorbs into the plant, killing off the entire root system and all.

Liquid- Liquid pre-emergent or post-emergent weed killers require mixing with water and distributing it with sprayers to evenly coat areas with the concentrated mixture.

Granular- Solid granules of herbicides require a spreader and additional watering to allow the particles to spread and release into the soil.

After identifying the exact herbicide your business needs for proper pre-emergent or post-emergent weed control, it’s time to get shopping!
