Weed Control Services in Milwaukee County’s North Shore
Wisconsin Lawn Care Rids Your Yard of Invasive Weeds
Weeds in your lawn or landscape are not only unsightly, but dangerous for your yard. Unmanaged weeds take up space in the soil and absorb nutrients meant for your grass or plants. As weeds are left untreated, they spread like wildfire throughout your landscape. Your once beautiful yard will quickly become an unsightly mess.
Luckily, Superior Outdoor Services provides exceptional lawn care services in Milwaukee and Ozaukee Counties. We can provide regular weed control services to keep your yard from being overrun.
Most Common Types of Weeds in Southeastern Wisconsin
There are a wide variety of weed types found in Wisconsin yards. They can be split up into three main categories:
Annual weeds grow fully within one year or less. There are two types of annual weeds: summer-annual and winter-annual. The summer-annual weeds pose a threat to plants or crops planted in the spring, while winter-annual weeds are a threat to plants or crops planted in the fall.
These weeds are spread by seed. Typically, the seed is brought in by birds or animals. Sometimes they spread through self-seeding.
Regular weeding will help you keep the spreading of annual weeds under control.
|Wild Buckwheat||Cocklebur||Ladysthumb Smartweed||Common Lambsquarters|
|Wild Radish||Smooth Pigweed||Redroot Pigweed||Purslane|
|Wild Mustard||Horseweed||Shepherds Purse||Field Pennycress|
|Velvetleaf||Jimson Weed||Prickly Lettuce||Smallflower Galinsoga|
|Bur Cucumber||Common Ragweed|
Biennial weeds are typically not as much of a problem as annual weeds. Since these weeds take two years to grow, they are usually taken care of during cultivation. If you plant a lot of perennial crops, you may have some issues with biennial weeds.
|Burdock||Musk Thistle||Plumeless Thistle||Bull Thistle|
Perennial weeds are much more difficult to remove than annual or biennial weeds. These weeds take hold in your lawn and grow deep roots. They can continue growing even if just the roots are left in the ground. You need to have the entire weed taken out to keep it from spreading. These weeds also last much longer than other types and can keep growing back year after year if not taken care of properly.
|Horsetail||Curly Dock||White Cockle||Yellow Rocket|
|Hoary Alyssum||Leafy Spurge||Hemp Dogbane||Common Milkweed|
|Field Bindweed||Hedge Bindweed||Horsenettle||Canada Thistle|
|Perennial Sow Thistle||Dandelion|
