Weeds popping up in landscape beds is a common occurrence here in Michigan. At first, they may seem innocuous, but there are several reasons you should remove them from your landscape beds as soon as you come across them. For one, weeds bring down the curb appeal of your landscape beds. But that’s not all, weeds will weaken your other plants by stealing nutrients from them. If left alone, weeds will continue to grow and spread, and they could even make their way out onto your lawn, making them even harder to deal with. By immediately removing weeds from your landscape beds, you can keep your beds looking nice and prevent weeds from stealing nutrients from your grass and plants.

Weeds bring down the curb appeal of your landscape beds.

Weeds are invasive plants that can take over your landscape beds with ease. They won’t match the aesthetic or vision you have for your landscape beds, clashing with the plants already there. Weeds will bring down your curb appeal because they make your landscape beds look visually unappealing and messy if they aren't promptly removed. By removing weeds before they get out of hand, you can keep your landscape beds looking neat and orderly.

Weeds will steal the nutrients that your plants need to thrive.

Weeds, when they aren’t removed from your landscape beds, are detrimental to the health of your plants. They steal nutrients from the surrounding plants, which unfortunately will affect how the plants look because they need nutrients to thrive. Depriving your plants of essential nutrients will also make them weaker and more susceptible to various diseases and pests. Even if you try to revive your plants with fertilizer, you’ll end up feeding the weeds the nutrients reserved for your plants. This is why you need to remove weeds when you see them—to ensure your plants are the ones getting the nutrients they need to grow strong and healthy.

Weeds will spread from your landscape beds out onto your lawn.

If weeds aren’t removed from your landscape beds, then they can even spread out onto your lawn. And once they start infesting your lawn, they can bring down its curb appeal as more weeds start germinating. Weeds will also steal the nutrients you intended to give your grass, which will make your lawn weaker and more susceptible to diseases, pests, and environmental stressors. When all things are said and done, you’ll find yourself with weeds scattered across your landscape beds and lawn, which means more time and effort devoted to removing them. You should aim to remove weeds from your landscape beds before they spread onto your lawn. You’ll end up saving yourself a lot of time and frustration if you nip the problem in the bud and get rid of weeds as you come across them!

If you notice weeds infesting your lawn, ask your local lawn care provider about a fertilization and weed control treatment!
