Although we have been around for forty years, we use the latest technology, techniques, and processes to provide optimal, environmentally friendly service. 

Now that you know a little about us, keep reading to gain the information you need to start the journey towards a fantastic, green lawn. 

Why Spring Pre-Emergent Treatments Matter

You cannot have a lush lawn when weeds pothole the landscape. The secret to your lawn care dreams begins with preventing weeds from sprouting. Pre-emergents create a barrier in the dirt that prevents weeds, especially annual weeds, from growing into new plants. Stopping weeds before they develop into plants is necessary because they compete for water, nutrients, and sunlight with the surrounding grass.  

Depending on the situation, Addison Green Lawn professional lawn care technicians apply liquid or granular pre and post-emergent weed controls in the spring to prevent dandelions, thistle, henbit, and other crabgrass and broadleaf weeds. Our product not only prevents weeds from developing, but it also stimulates the grass to "green up." 

Understanding The Dallas Climate

We live in a humid subtropical conducive to warm weather grasses. These grasses (e.g., Bermuda grass, zoysia grass, St. Augustine grass, and some variations of warm-season fescue) go dormant and turn brown during our short winter but thrive in our Texas heat. 

To maintain a lush green lawn in our Dallas climate, we recommend the following:

  • Applying a pre-emergent in the spring

  • Fertilizing in the late spring

  • Aerating the yard

  • Watering 

  • Mowing the lawn at a higher setting.

Our warm, humid can burn up a yard quickly, so you need to take precautions to foster grass growth while eliminating the weeds. When an Addison Green Lawn technician inspects your property for spring lawn care, we can provide additional tips to combat our Dallas climate. 

DIY Vs. Professional Application

Do-it-yourself lawn care is possible for some but impracticable for most people. Achieving and maintaining a satisfying lawn requires learning about the grass types in your yard and understanding and identifying pest threats, time, and flexibility. Most people don't have the time or patience necessary to achieve what they visualize in their minds. 

Professional lawn care has these benefits:

  • Expertise

  • Time savings

  • Consistency

  • Reliability

When you partner with Addison Green Lawn for affordable lawn care, you work with a company with four decades of lawn care experience. You have trained and experienced lawn care technicians managing your lawn care needs. We know the weed types invading yards in your area and the grass types in your yard, and we can create a strategic plan utilizing the correct products to achieve your desired results. 

With Spring Pre-Emergent Treatments, Timing Is Everything

Timing is crucial for effective pre-emergent treatments. Our warm, humid weather requires pre-emergent application in the early spring (e.g., February to early March) to prevent crabgrass, goosegrass, and spurge from germinating.
