If a weed grows in the forest, but no one is around to see it; is it still a weed? The answer is a surprising, no! Undesirable plants found in fields, gardens, lawns, and parks are recognized as weeds, but outside of these environments, they are simply considered vegetation.

For the people of San Antonio, however, weeds are a common problem. Weeds, such as dandelions, are perennial and have strong food reserves; they grow faster and spread further than their annual counterparts.

San Antonio residents struggle with a number of different weeds including:

  • Bermuda Grass
  • Bindweed
  • Broadleaf Plantain
  • Burdock
  • Creeping Charlie
  • Dandelions
  • Japanese Knotweed
  • Milk Thistle
  • Poison Ivy
  • Ragweed
  • Sumac
  • Wood Sorrel

Fortunately, these unwanted plants can be controlled. They can be ploughed, cutting the root weed, or killed using powerful herbicides. Ploughing eliminates weeds but leaves other plants unharmed. Weeds can also be burned, or ground coverings can be implemented, creating a harsh environment known as a “weed mat.” This option is optimal, because it prevents weeds from growing in the first place.

Unfortunately, yard owners often struggle with dandelions and other weeds for years before calling experienced professionals to take care of business. As a result, many are frustrated over a lackluster yard full of unwanted plant life – but not customers of Bob Jenkins.

Local residents know that weeds are a problem, and they want to prevent them. Weeds have little or no value, grow rapidly, and compete with other plants for space, light, water, and nutrients. Some are poisonous and contaminating; others host pests and diseases. There are a number of reasons why San Antonio customers contact Bob Jenkins professionals for weed control, and they are satisfied with the results every time.
