Weeds With Purple Flowers
If you are perfectionist on your beautiful lawn, some purple colored weeds embedded in the grass will definitely make you annoying. Actually, controlling these weeds seems to be impossible because they are hiding in the lawn too deeply to be removed. Also, they are spreading so quickly and you must come up with a way to keep them under control to keep your lawn tidy and clean.
There are a number of purple-flowered weeds which can invade your lawn. The violet is one of the famous flowering weeds which are not easy to get rid of. They have heart-like leaves and can spread rapidly if left unattended. Purple deadnettle is another common weed species which can bloom purple flowers. They are self-seeding plants can do not grow very high which make it difficult to remove them easily. Another type of weed, Purple nutsedge, will produce purple seeds instead of blossom.
If you decide to remove these weeds manually, you need to do the job before the seeding dates. The ideal time to do the actual job is in a day when the soil is damp and moist. The removed weeds should be thrown into the bins quickly instead of leaving them in the lawn to avoid the further seeding. You should protect your hands by wearing some protective gloves because some weeds have sharp edges on their leaves.
Another way to control the spread of weed is to use some chemical weedkillers. For a large area of lawn, removing the weed manually will be a hard job. Some herbicide can save you a lot of time. However, you should read the instructions carefully from the label of the wrap. Misuse of herbicide may cause your lawn to be killed instantly. If necessary, herbicide should be used for more than once to get the best result. When applying herbicide to your lawn, you still need to wear protective gloves, glasses and clothes to protect your skin and eyes.
