Welcome back Dandelions!

Now that dandelion season is in full force, it’s hard to not notice the bright yellow flowers popping up everywhere. The burst of warm weather we have experienced has them out with a vengeance, and they are keeping us very busy as our technicians work tirelessly from early morning until the evening to get all of our customer’s weeds under control.

One of the worst things you can do if you have dandelions is to pull them out yourself. This will more than likely leave even the smallest piece of root in the ground, which can cause two or more dandelions to pop up from that one you removed! That’s why with Fiesta, we target-spray the them and kill the entire plant, down to the roots.

If you don’t have the Fusion program as a part of your lawn services with us, this is the time to start! We hit those weeds with back to back applications within about 5 weeks of each visit to really get those dandelions and other broad-leaf weeds under control early only, giving you that beautiful, weed free lawn you’re dreaming of. Another great benefit is that you do get free weed touch ups in-between applications if need be, so long as the weather is permitting.

What does “weather permitting” mean, exactly? The weather is a huge influence on many of the services we preform, and sometimes it’s not always in our favour. In the case of weed control, for example, it means that if we see it is going to rain the day we have to postpone the weed application for the next day in which there isn’t a great risk of rain in the forecast.  Heat can also play a role. For example, if we are going through a long, dry spell with higher than normal temperatures this can make the weed control ineffective until the weather cools back down. When it gets too hot/dry, the weeds form a protective barrier on their leaves, making our product unable to penetrate into the plant properly to kill it.
