Common Weeds Every Gardener Should Know

Post By Hugo Iriarte

Your plants are in the soil. You’ve got all the right gardening tools. You’re well on your way to creating the perfect garden.

But one of the biggest challenges for any gardener is combating weeds. If you’re not familiar with the different types of weeds, it could make weed control a challenge.

We thought we’d outline some of the most common types of weeds. We’ve also thrown in a few suggestions on how to eliminate them from your yard.


Ah, beautiful, innocent dandelions. You almost feel bad about plucking them from your yard. But if you don’t get rid of them, they’ll take over your yard and become a big distraction. Dandelions, if they’re around long enough, dry out and become the familiar white puff that you used to make a wish as a kid.

Dandelions can be reduced through regular lawn maintenance. Mow your lawn regularly to prevent mature dandelions from distributing their seeds. Composting and removing dandelions by hand can also help with reduction.




    You’d recognize these low-growing tuffs anywhere! Crabgrass grows best in dry conditions, so expect it to show up in the spring and summer. All you need to do to treat crabgrass is to maintain your lawn. Mulching, hoeing and mowing your lawn can keep crabgrass from flowering and producing seeds.


    Chickweed is one tough cookie. Without competition, one chickweed plant can produce around 800 seeds. If you want to combat chickweed, find ways to prevent it from flowering. You’ve only got a short time to tackle chickweed, so keep an eye out. Through heavy mulching, you can block sunlight from reaching the plant, keeping chickweed at bay.

    It’s time to bring out your inner garden guru and show your backyard who’s boss. Need a nontoxic weed control product to combat the weeds on your lawn? We’ve got the perfect product.
