Prevention Tips for Keeping Your Home Weed-Free After Monsoon Rains

Avoid manual weed control

As the scorching summer approaches in Tucson and Green Valley, so does the anticipation of the monsoon season. While these rains bring much-needed relief from the heat, they also pave the way for an unwelcome guest: weeds. The months leading up to monsoon season are critical for homeowners to take proactive measures to prevent weed growth following the summer storms.

1. Early Prevention: Start early by implementing preventive measures before the monsoon season hits. This includes clearing out existing weeds and applying pre-emergent product to inhibit weed seed germination.

2. Proper Irrigation Techniques: Adjust irrigation systems to prevent oversaturation of soil, which can encourage weed growth. Drip irrigation or soaker hoses help target water directly to plants and minimize moisture in weed-prone areas.

3. Regular Maintenance: Regularly walk around your property to spot and remove any emerging weeds before they establish roots and begin to flower. This includes hand-pulling weeds or the use of a professional post-emergent application service.

4. Stay Vigilant: Weed control is an ongoing process, especially in Southern Arizona’s climate. Stay vigilant throughout the summer months and promptly address any weed outbreaks to prevent them from spreading.

5. Utilize Weed Control Services: Consider enlisting the expertise of professional weed control services like Bill’s Home Service.
