Treating Your Dallas Lawn Now To Prevent Weeds Later
February 15, 2021 - Lawn Care
In other parts of the country, weeds are only a seasonal issue. But the warm weather of Dallas is a blessing and a curse. While it means you'll have a mild winter, the climate also means you will experience year-round weeds. All year long, you can expect to fight to maintain a green and healthy lawn. Weeds might keep your lawn green, but they don't make your lawn look its best. All of the local weeds have a tendency to take over quickly, which can make your grass uneven and non-uniform. No matter how hard you work to keep your lawn well-maintained, weeds will try to ruin your efforts. They're relentless and never seem to stop. But there are ways in which you can keep weeds from taking over your lawn. By treating your lawn today, you can keep weeds away tomorrow and in the upcoming days.
The Local Weeds
There are three types of weeds in the Dallas area- broadleaf, grass-like, and sedge weeds. In the cool temperatures, broadleaf weeds take root. They start to seed when the weather warms up in the spring. Grass-like weeds also tend to root when the cold weather comes around. However, sedges thrive in the heat. They tend to be a problem all year long. Weeds tend to explode in the spring. The warmer weather causes them to grow quickly and spread quickly. For that reason, treating weeds in the fall and spring is essential.
Why You Should Treat In The Fall And Spring
As the cooler weather approaches, treating weeds may be the last thing on your mind. With the cooler weather, why should you worry about weeds taking over? In reality, the fall is the perfect time to treat weeds in Dallas.
When you apply a weed killer in the fall, you can kill off the weeds that like to sprout in the cool weather. Although the weeds won't explode until the warm weather comes, they will be spending the winter getting ready to invade your lawn. By treating weeds in the fall, you can stop the problem before it's uncontrollable. As important as it is to treat weeds in the fall, it's equally important to treat your lawn in the spring. Doing so will ensure that no weeds upset the balance of your manicured lawn. Before the warm weather fully arrives, you can stop weeds with a pre-emergent weed treatment. It allows you to prevent weeds rather than fight them. Without a fall application, your attempts at eliminating weeds in the spring may not be successful. Typically, weed killers that work on grassy weeds also destroy your grass. You might not be able to get rid of your spring weeds without ruining your lawn. Fortunately, you can use our services to fight weeds before they take over.
