The best time to start using preventative measures for controlling winter weeds in your McDonough lawn is NOW!  Winter weeds begin to germinate around the same time that your warm season grasses transition into dormancy.  Pre – emergence herbicides are used to prevent winter weeds from germinating.  By not controlling winter weeds with the use of pre emergence herbicides, you put your lawn at risk for an unsightly invasion during spring green up.  If allowed to germinate, winter weeds will compete against your desired turf stand for sunlight, water and nutrients.  Once established they can be difficult to eradicate, making timing of the essence!  Common winter weeds in your McDonough lawn may include poa annua, henbit, chickweed, dandelions, and wild onions.
