Act now to prevent weeds


CALEDONIA, Mich. (WOOD) Now that the snow has finally melted away, it’s easy to see the shape of our yards and gardens after the long, cold winter. But it’s not too early to start thinking about weed control. The experts at Harder and Warner Landscaping and Garden Center say you need to act early to keep weeds from germinating. They say to wait until temperatures are in the 50s for a few days in a row, then put down some pre-emergent. That should keep a majority of the weeds from germinating.

The cold, snowy winter won’t likely have an impact on the amount of weeds in your yard and garden. The weeds will still germinate, but they will sprout later and all at the same time when it gets warm.

Harder and Warner is located at 6464 Broadmoor SE in Caledonia, just south of the M-6 interchange.
