Explore Jonathan Green Weed Control & Prevention Products

To avoid a weed infestation, it’s important to quickly deal with any weeds that pop up. Using a weed control product will help to eliminate broadleaf and grassy weeds from creeping into your yard. With a plethora of options available, however, it can be confusing to know which one is right for you.


Jonathan Green offers a wide variety of weed control and weed prevention products to help kill existing broadleaf weeds and prevent grassy weeds. Our premium herbicides are specially formulated to kill over 200+ types of lawn weeds. To help you tackle your weed problem, read below for information about different types of lawn weeds and the specific type of product you’ll need to keep your lawn weed-free.


Why Weed Control Is Important

When weeds invade your lawn, they’re competing for the same nutrients, air, and water that your grass needs to thrive. Weeds are often the first to soak up nutrients from fertilizer, meaning your lawn’s growth isn’t fueled as much as it should be. Put simply, without proper weed control, your grass plants are competing with weeds to survive in your yard. This will make your lawn more prone to issues like disease, insect infestation, and drought.


Just like if humans don’t get enough sleep, water, and vitamins, their immune system is weakened- the same goes for grass plants. If weeds are soaking up all the nutrients your grass needs, then it will struggle. However, if you put down a weed preventer, your grass will not need to compete for resources.


Types of Lawn Weeds

There are two types of lawn weeds: broadleaf weeds and grassy weeds. Most types of weed controls target either broadleaf weeds OR grassy weeds, not both at the same time so it’s important to identify the type of lawn weed you have prior to selecting a weed control for optimal results.


Broadleaf Weeds

Broadleaf weeds are distinguishable by their deep taproots and pronounced flowers once they reach maturity. Some common examples of broadleaf weeds include dandelions, chickweed, and clover.


Grassy Weeds

Grassy weeds are slightly more difficult to spot, as they look like and often blend in with the rest of your lawn. They are identifiable by their thick, unsightly leaves and rounded stems, with alternating leaf blades on each side. Some common examples of grassy weeds include crabgrass, poa annua, and goosegrass.


Types of Weed Controls

Aside from being categorized into broadleaf and grassy weed controls, weed killers are also formulated to offer either pre or post-emergent control of lawn weeds. Pre-emergent weed controls work underground to prevent weeds from growing and overtaking your lawn. Post-emergent weed controls kill weeds that have already grown above ground to prevent them from going to seed, taking over your lawn, and becoming a recurring problem.


Pre-emergent Weed Control

Pre-emergent weed controls provide preventative treatment for most lawn weeds. If you want to get ahead of a weed problem in your lawn, this may be the right treatment for you.


The magic of how pre-emergent weed control works begins in the lawn’s soil. Most pre-emergent weed controls create a barrier at or just below the surface of the soil to prevent weed seeds from germinating and growing into a full-blown problem.


Pre-emergents work best with grassy weeds, such as crabgrass, as its plants produce seeds that lay dormant in the fall until they germinate in spring when most people find them in their lawns. Because crabgrass is harder to treat when it’s reached maturity (past the third leaf stage), it’s best to apply a pre-emergent in early spring to prevent the weed seeds from germinating.


Where most pre-emergents only work to prevent weed seeds from germinating, Jonathan Green Veri-Green Crabgrass Preventer plus Lawn Fertilizer offers both pre AND post-emergent control of crabgrass up to the three-leaf stage. It has fewer harmful ingredients than other crabgrass preventers and includes fertilizer to promote an early spring green-up.


Post-emergent Weed Control

Post-emergent weed controls work to kill lawn weeds that have already germinated and grown above ground. They serve as damage control, by coming in and attacking established weeds at the root to ensure they won’t grow back.


Post-emergent weed control proves to be most effective on weeds that are actively growing. Dandelions, for example, are broadleaf weeds that most people find actively growing in their lawns in early spring. While you can hand-pull small infestations, using post-emergent weed control, like Jonathan Green Veri-Green Weed & Feed or Jonathan Green Lawn Weed Control ensures you kill the weed and eliminate its root.


Some post-emergent weed controls are also coupled with fertilizer to provide a deep greening to your lawn while controlling weeds. Jonathan Green Weed & Feed includes fertilizer to gently feed the lawn while controlling over 250+ broadleaf weeds! This can save you both time and money, by offering the convenience of two treatments in one easy-to-use product.


Natural Weed Control

Natural weed control is an eco-friendly alternative to controlling weeds in your lawn. Most natural weed controls are composed of non-chemical ingredients, such as corn gluten, which hinders root formation, killing the new weeds soon after they germinate.


Natural weed controls may require a bit of patience in comparison to synthetic weed controls, as they may take more than one application to control severe lawn weed infestations. Even so, using natural weed prevention products is ultimately beneficial for your lawn, family, and the environment!


Jonathan Green Corn Gluten Weed Preventer is specially formulated with patented corn gluten technology to provide pre-emergent control of both broadleaf and grassy weeds, while gently feeding the lawn. This eco-friendly, double-action weed control product is also gentle enough to use in flower gardens and planting beds. It is safe to apply around kids and pets and is our only weed control that will prevent both broadleaf and grassy weeds.
