Weeds are defined as any undesirable plant. When a weed enters your turf, it’s not only undesirable but also unsightly and causes a disturbance to the overall value of your landscape. Well maintained lawns in St. Louis are not only appealing, but have become virtually expected. That’s why it is important to choose the best St. Louis lawn weed control service provider to maintain your turf.

“Dowco has done a great job for my turf. I used their fertilization program one year then switched to somebody else. I came back to Dowco after unsatisfactory results. I did everything Dowco recommended including the renovation package - double aeration and over-seeding etc. in the fall. I could really tell a difference in the lawn from the end of last year to the end of this year! The way that the Dowco crews kept coming back out, checking, walking, and sprinkling the site with more grass seed was impressive. I was concerned that the drought we had in August would affect our lawn more than it did, but Dowco kept it looking perfect, thick, green, and beautiful. People who stop by my house compliment my lawn!”
In July, rainfall becomes scarce and the plants in your landscape will do their best to conserve energy and slow down growth. Many times during July we’re busy celebrating summer and often go out of town. Be sure to give your plants the special attention they need this month.
Water is the number one necessity for all living things. We as humans have the ability to find water for ourselves; we carry our water bottles around, stop at a drinking fountain or could even go stick our head in a stream if we needed to. Plants are not so lucky. They rely on Mother Nature to get the water to them.
