Maintaining a pristine landscape is crucial when it comes to your business establishing a strong presence in the community. The last thing you need is for your sidewalk, plant beds, and lawn to be overrun with ugly weeds and make your property look unkempt. Not only are weeds a massive eyesore, but they are also quite harmful to the health of your landscape, which makes weed control incredibly important. In this article, we discuss the ways in which weeds can impact your commercial landscape and what you can do about it. Continue reading to learn more.
They Cut off Plant Food Supply
When weeds emerge from the ground, they compete with surrounding plants for resources. Just as with every other plant, shrub, or tree, weeds need water, nutrients, and sunlight to thrive, and they will hog those resources in order to do so.
Without the nutrients plants need to survive, they become more susceptible to disease. The lack of resources combined with the heightened risk of disease puts your landscape in serious danger once weeds emerge.
They Take Up Space
In addition to hogging precious resources, weeds take up space in your flower beds and lawn, which prevents your plants from growing and reaching their full potential. If the problem gets out of control, weeds can form a blanket that takes up entire areas on a landscape, seriously impeding the growth of any other plants.
They Spread Quickly
Once weeds are established on a property, they can reproduce very quickly. In fact, some weeds are known to spread thousands of seeds, which enable them to invade an entire landscape in a short amount of time.
They Carry Pathogens
Weeds often carry or host plant pathogens, which can significantly increase the risk of plants becoming infected. Once plants and trees fall prey to disease, it can be nearly impossible to save them.
