Weeds are present on just about every lawn, you will occasionally see the weed free lawn, but that doesn’t make them any less frustrating to deal with. What’s frustrating is spending time treating weeds, just to see new ones pop up after the weeds you treated go away.
If you’re like many homeowners, you’re probably wondering the best time of year to treat weeds in your lawn.

Soil pH is one of the most important factors of growing a healthy lawn in North Carolina, but too often, homeowners don’t understand the condition of their soil or how to improve it.
Clay soil is prevalent in the Raleigh area, and it tends to be acidic. When soil is in the acidic range, grass plants struggle to absorb the nutrients that are necessary for a healthy lawn. By adding soil amendments, such as lime, you can, over time, raise the soil’s pH to a more favorable level that creates a healthier lawn.
