The spring season symbolizes the start of new growth for your lawn in Texas, which applies to weeds, too! Because of this, you don't want to skip out on weed control in the spring. Weeds are ugly, invasive plants that can take over your turf and drag down its curb appeal by making it look messy and unkempt. Not only that, but they can also steal vital nutrients and resources from your grass, making it weaker and ill-prepared for the growing season. Fortunately, you can avoid these problems with pre- and post-emergent weed control. While pre-emergents will help you get ahead of weeds before they surface, post-emergents will eliminate any existing growth. That way, your lawn stays weed-free and is set up for success in the spring.
Weeds can take over your lawn and drag down its curb appeal.
Your lawn is at the forefront of your property, meaning it's one of the first things passersby will notice, so you want it to look pristine and beautiful. Unfortunately, the opposite happens when weeds take over, which is what will happen if you skip out on weed control in the spring! These invasive plants have ugly heads that clash against the uniformity of your grass, dragging down its curb appeal by making it look messy and unkempt. Rather than watching as your once appealing lawn becomes overrun by weeds, you should invest in weed control in the spring so that it enters the new growing season in great shape.
Weeds can steal nutrients and other resources from your grass.
Another reason skipping out on weed control in the spring would be a big mistake is that weeds can steal vital nutrients and other resources from your grass. Your grass needs that nourishment to help emerge from winter dormancy and start the spring season on the right foot. However, weeds will take any opportunity to persist, thus leaving your lawn with less of everything it needs. As a result, it can become weaker and more susceptible to stress. By investing in weed control treatments, you can ensure it can maximize the nutrients, sunlight, and water it receives so that it stays healthy.
Use Pre- & Post-Emergent Weed Control in the Spring
The best way to keep your lawn weed-free in the spring is with pre- and post-emergent weed control. Pre-emergent treatments help prevent newly germinated weeds from sprouting through the soil by creating a barrier they can't penetrate. Meanwhile, post-emergents target any weeds that have already surfaced, eliminating them so they don't continue to cause problems. Using both treatments during the spring will allow you to cover both ends of the weed growth cycle and yield optimal results, specifically a lawn free of pesky weeds!
In addition to weed control in the spring, you'll also want to apply fertilizer treatments to give your lawn the nutrients it needs to thrive.
