Residing or owning a business in Pensacola, Florida, is like being on a staycation every day. Located along the gulf coast, we have picturesque scenery, a lingering ocean breeze, and saltwater in the air. Like any climate, we, too, have our lawn problems, including different diseases, insects, and weeds.
Weeds can pose a serious threat to the health of your lawn. At Lawn Master, we understand how important the appearance of your lawn is and don’t want to see your healthy grass overrun and damaged by weeds. There are three main categories of weeds that most commonly affect our Pensacola lawns.
Grassy weeds have leaves that are long and thin and similar to a blade of grass. Some of the most common types that reside in Pensacola are:
Broadleaf weeds typically have wide leaves with the main vein in the center that leads to smaller veins that branch out. They are pretty easy to identify in your Pensacola lawn and often contain flowers. A few of the most common we see are:
• Virginia buttonweed
Sedges often look like grass at first glance due to their long, thin leaf blades. However, they are usually thicker and have an extensive root system containing tubers which aid in reproducing new plants. The two sedge species we see here in Pensacola are:
• Yellow nutsedge
• Purple nutsedge
The overabundance of weeds is a sure-fire indicator that other problems are affecting your lawn. The best defense to combating weeds is to keep your lawn as healthy and strong as possible.
