Even though we consider weeds a nuisance, they’re plants just like grass, flowers or shrubs. That means they’ll grow just as thick and rampant as our favourite herbs if we let them. So, the best way to get rid of weeds is to make your lawn an environment where it’s difficult for them to thrive. Low-mowed grass, compacted soil and water-deprived turf all encourage weeds. Reversing these problems and maintaining a healthy lawn is the best way to permanently say goodbye to weeds.
