For those who haven’t left your lawns dormant have you seen a bigger number of weeds this year than past? The amount of thistleweed I’ve seen has been crazy and I’m starting to see other things as well despite the lawn service coming and spraying things.

I use a lawn service for weeds and the. I supplement with an herbicide spray. But I have noticed more weeds than normal. Crab grass was aggressive. But I have a special sauce for that.

We have a pond behind our house and there is a tall grass buffer between lawns and water. The thistle went ridonculous this summer. I never noticed it before and this year they were thick.

I think next spring I’m going to look into some lawn service. The house we bought was a rental since 2009, so there has been some neglect. The inside is actually pretty kept up. Some odds and ends here and there. And most of those are just things we want change, not from neglect. The lawn is a different story and I want to do some landscaping before I call a lawn care co. Along with calling the city of Lakeville and getting the ok to do some stuff.
