Your landscape beds are focal points on your property in Texas, but unsightly weeds can drag down their curb appeal and steal much-needed nutrients from your plants. Fortunately, there are ways to keep pesky weeds from overrunning them, such as installing mulch. A mulch ground cover can prevent them from growing, and if any have already surfaced, you can either use an herbicide treatment or hand-pull them. However, signing up for a professional landscape bed weed control service is the best way to ensure they stay weed-free all year.

Installing mulch is a highly effective method of keeping weeds out of your landscape beds. This ground cover is spread over the surface, smothering and blocking weeds from accessing sunlight and other resources they need to grow. It can also prevent weed seeds blown into them from reaching the soil, ensuring they never get the chance to grow in the first place! That way, they stay out of your landscape beds, and your plants can access everything they need to thrive without competing with weeds.

Mulch offers numerous benefits, including regulating soil temperature, retaining moisture, and protecting the roots of your plants from harsh weather elements.

Use an Herbicide Treatment or Hand-Pull Weeds in Your Landscape Beds

If there is existing weed growth in your landscape beds, you'll want to eliminate them as soon as possible. One of the methods of doing that is by using an herbicide treatment. You'll want to administer this treatment directly to the weed so it can sink into the soil and kill it at its roots. You can also pull them by hand so they don't continue to drag down the curb appeal of your landscape beds and steal nutrients and space from your plants. However, if you opt for this removal method, you'll want to ensure you pull up the entire growth, including its roots, so it doesn't have a chance to regrow.
