What are Dandelions?
Dandelions are a type of weed that looks like a flower. Its yellow petals may look pretty in a wild field but others argue it’s a huge nuisance to maintaining a healthy lawn. Dandelions are known for growing in the later months of spring or early summer. These weeds can be relentless and even grow on the healthiest grass. Picking out a few dandelion weeds by hand may seem easy, but over time the problem still persists.
Why are Dandelions Bad for Your Lawn?
Dandelions are notorious for their recovery and speed at which they spread and take over your lawn. In other words, it only takes one to conquer your lawn due to its fluffy and floating seeds. It’s a type of weed that will continue to grow and multiply faster the longer you wait to kill them. Dandelions will push out grass and other plants, as well as drain water and nutrients away from surrounding plants. This can cause weakening root growth and may lead to brown patches.
