Keys to reducing weeds

  • Identify first. Many difficult weeds require special actions or herbicide (weed killer). Some actions could make the situation worse.
  • Cover bare soil with desirable plants or 3 inches of mulch.
  • For lawns, apply water, fertilizer, and seed to maintain lush grass.
  • Don’t just buy “Weed Killer” and start spraying. Different products work on different weeds; some won’t kill a particular weed at all.
  • Prevent weeds from going to seed.
  • Take action on aggressive and invasive weeds that harm natural areas and take over neglected areas.
  • For information on controlling invasive weeds, contact your county Weed Control program. Find contact information here: https://www.oregon.gov/oda/programs/Weeds/Pages/CountyWeedPrograms.aspx
  • You can also contact “Ask extension”  https://extension.oregonstate.edu/ask-extension for guidance.
