As a homeowner, it can be challenging to keep up with all the areas of home maintenance. For instance, many homeowners may underestimate the value of lawn service' however, ensuring that your lawn is healthy not only adds to your curb appeal but also can improve both your quality of life and your home's value. There are a variety of things to consider when caring for and maintaining a healthy lawn, including pest control and weed control.
Why bother with pest control?
Lawn diseases and your yard
Weeds and pests on your lawn
Another contributor to lawn damage is the presence of invasive weed species. Common weeds found across North America include Crabgrass, Creeping Charlie, Canada Thistle, Dandelion, and Plantains. Some of these plants were originally introduced as a source of livestock feed but over time have spread out of control. Others such as the dandelion may have been used at one time as folk medicine. No matter the original intent for these plants being introduced, they generally exert a negative effect when it comes to your lawn and garden.
Lawns are constantly under threat, not just from weeds and diseases, but also with the presence of lawn damaging insects and their larvae. In some cases, the primary damage may come in the form of these insects eating away at grass or the leaves of shrubs. Alternatively, grub worms or insect larvae may be present at the root level, destroying the vital nutritional support system of your grasses and plants.
Treat early for a healthy lawn
Considering how quickly pest and weed populations can multiply, being proactive in preventing and treating these conditions is crucial.

For example, as lawn conditions deteriorate, certain species may look elsewhere for food or shelter—including your home.
