The dreaded dandelion, easy to identify but sometimes frustrating to get under control. It is mid-April and the dandelions have already started to seed out here in Northern Colorado! The warm spring has been great for the dandelions and they are out earlier this year. One dandelion flower can produce 150-200 seeds and one plant averages 10 flowers per season, meaning 15,000 seeds per plant per season! They are also perennials and have a very long taproot. If you do not pull the entire root out or kill it entirely, it can come back from the base.

Our hybrid lawn fertilization program includes weed control for dandelions. It will create a healthy strong lawn that will begin to naturally suppress weeds over time. We also offer weed control for your rock and mulch beds so you don’t have to wage the battle of the dreaded dandelion. Learn more about EcoTurf at www.myecoturf.com.
