Your landscape beds are focal points, and keeping them healthy and well-maintained will enhance your property's curb appeal in Texas. However, weeds can be a big problem for your landscape beds and will gladly steal nutrients from your plants for themselves; not to mention, they're also an eyesore and will drag down the overall aesthetic of your landscape beds. So, you can deal with them in three ways: hand-pulling them, using pre-emergent weed control treatments, and applying post-emergents. Continue reading to learn more about the different ways to handle weeds in your landscape beds so that you can keep them healthy and weed-free year after year!

1. You Can Hand-Pull the Weeds in Your Landscape Beds

Not only are weeds an eyesore, but they're also a nuisance for your plants, so it's understandable to want to rip them out. Fortunately, you can deal with the weeds in your landscape beds by hand-pulling them, but you'll need to do so correctly. To do this, you'll have to remove the entire weed, including its roots and all other parts, to ensure it doesn't have a chance to spread and resurface. This method of weed removal is the better option if there aren't many weeds populating your landscape beds.

2. You Can Use Pre-Emergent Weed Control Treatments to Prevent Weeds From Growing in Your Landscape Beds

The most effective method of weed control is prevention, and pre-emergent weed control treatments will do just that. Using pre-emergents is a great way to stop weeds from sprouting and growing in your landscape beds, as it acts as a barrier between them and the surface. However, timing is crucial with these treatments; you'll need to apply them before the weeds pass a certain point in their life cycle to ensure they're effective. Once they do, pre-emergents will no longer work on them.

Professionals will always know the best time to apply pre-emergent weed control treatments to get ahead of weeds before they surface in your landscape beds.

3. You Can Apply Post-Emergent Weed Control Treatments to Eliminate Weed Growth in Your Landscape Beds

Another way you can deal with weeds in your landscape beds is with post-emergent weed control treatments. You can apply these treatments directly to the surfaced weed growth, which will absorb into its roots below and eliminate the weed stealing space and nutrients away from your plants. But wait, there's more - post-emergents will catch those persistent weeds that have already passed a certain growth point and weren't affected by pre-emergents. Because of this, it's best to use both of these treatments together to yield the best results and keep your landscape beds weed-free!
