Professional Weed Control Services in Oklahoma

Weed Control

Oklahoma is a temperate state with an average temperature of 60 degrees. This means mild nights and warm daylight hours for most of the year, allowing weeds to take root quickly and spread rapidly in almost any season. Even in locations where the winter cold freezes the ground, it takes only a few weeks of warmer weather for weeds to gain a foothold and flourish.


TurfWorks is a locally-owned lawn care company, and we know what it takes to navigate a weedy Oklahoma lawn. Strategies that work in other parts of the country just aren’t going to cut it here, where lawns, soil, and grass within the same region of the state can vary widely. That’s why TurfWorks focuses on creating weed control plans tailored to your unique residential or commercial property. We’re fully licensed and insured, and controlling weeds is just one of the comprehensive lawn care services we’re proud to offer.

What Goes into Weed Control?

Weed control is more complicated than just pulling out the plants that you don’t like. The reason that a lawn or garden is overtaken with weeds usually comes down to soil deficiency, such as a need for more nutrients or improper coverage. The best weed control services will identify what’s lacking in your landscape and create solutions that are specifically tailored to those shortcomings rather than opting for a one-size-fits-all, cookie-cutter approach.


In Oklahoma, specific knowledge of the most common types of weeds that plague your yard is vital to ensuring that your weed control is actually effective. Sticker/goat heads are one of the most common problems, and many families spend thousands of dollars trying to control them using DIY methods instead of asking the pros for help.


Other types of weeds that Oklahoma residents have to contend with each year include:

  • Bull nettles
  • Bluegrass
  • Ragweed
  • Dandelions
  • Chickweed
  • Pigweed
  • Yarrow
  • Vetch
  • Prickly lettuce
  • Henbit
  • Curly dock
  • Crabgrass
  • Black medic
  • Nutsedge
  • Dallisgrass


Each yard is its own ecosystem, which means each lawn can have a mix of weeds that’s vastly different from the one next to it. Not only can an expert lawn company like TurfWorks can help you identify which weeds you’re dealing with, but we have effective solutions to combat them. We combine a comprehensive slow-release fertilizer–designed to feed your turf–with pre-emergent weed control and post-emergent control to take care of broadleaf and grassy weeds, and we include guaranteed control of the most problematic weeds like nutgrass at no additional charge.

Weed Control DIY vs. Professional Services

When people think of weed control, the first image that comes to mind might be someone on their hands and knees with gardening gloves, painstakingly removing weeds one by one. While this will work to a certain degree, weed pulling and other DIY methods take a lot of work, expose you to harmful chemicals, and they may not even target the real “root” of your weed issue. This is where professional weed control services come in.


Weed control experts like TurfWorks have the equipment and expertise to get rid of weeds and make sure they stay gone better than most DIY methods. Many homeowners don’t have access to tools like aerators, for example, that can help break up compacted soil and support healthy grass that crowds out troublesome weeds. DIYers also don’t usually know what type of grass they have or which beneficial bugs and plants are keeping their landscape in good health, which makes it difficult to tackle weed control without simply causing more harm. 


TurfWorks, however, takes these and many other factors into account when determining how to implement an effective, permanent solution to your weed problem. 


TurfWorks offers professional weed control services like:

  • Spot spraying
  • Full-yard spraying
  • Fertilizing
  • Pest control
  • Personalized strategies based on grass type
  • Post-emergent weed removal
  • Pre-emergent inhibitor application

It can be difficult to know where to start when it comes to tackling weeds. Here are some common questions we receive from homeowners and businesses wanting a healthier, improved lawn.


What can a professional lawn care company do for my lawn?


At Turf Works, our team of professionals can handle everything from leaf removal to flower bed remodels at a fraction of the price of other companies. The advantage of having a professional landscaper on your side is that you can receive all of your landscape needs from the same trusted company; you don’t need one to handle the weeds while another maintains your irrigation system, causing different contractors to start stepping on each other’s toes and interfering with each other’s work. Instead, a single reputable company like TurfWorks can handle it all to create a synergistic space that is healthy and thriving. Call today to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation and find out how we can improve your residential or commercial landscape.


Can weed control be done without chemicals?


The most common weed killers rely on herbicides and chemicals that inhibit the growth of these nuisance plants. However, not every family or business wants to or is able to utilize these formulas. You may not want children or pets exposed to chemical pesticides, or your business might be conscientious of the environment and want to opt for more natural solutions that preserve desirable wildlife, such as bees and butterflies.


Weed control is about more than herbicides, and TurfWorks can help you explore the many options for solving your weed problem. Perhaps your ground needs fertilizer so that robust grass can grow and crowd out weeds like crabgrass. Maybe you can change the way or frequency in which you mow grass to cut down on the germination of weeds. No matter what your needs are, the experts at TurfWorks can determine what would work best in your landscape.


Natural options for controlling weeds include:

  • Cultivating competitors to crowd out weeds
  • Utilizing ground covers to prevent germination
  • Encouraging natural grazers to eat weeds
  • Introducing beneficial insects that feast on weeds


Will weeds stay gone?


Weeds don’t need to be a regular part of your lawn. Some variants are perennial, and getting rid of them will require careful, strategic planning to prevent them from taking root year after year. Others are annual, and stopping their pollination is sufficient to eliminate them from your yard. Working with a lawn care expert like TurfWorks is the best way to make sure that weeds stay gone for good, because they can tackle more than the weeds–they can address the reasons why weeds are appearing in the first place, and once weeds no longer have ideal conditions, they’ll stop growing. 


Weed control treatment will begin to work gradually, with the first changes noticeable within a few weeks of starting treatment. The best results are seen after continued use, as weeds begin to weaken and decrease in number and density. Regular, routine, and repetitive weed control also improves the health of the lawn, keeping your grass from competing with intrusive weeds and resulting in a greener, more lush landscape.
