Fertilization is essential to beautiful, healthy lawns. It promotes new leaf and root growth, helps grass recover from pests and foot traffic, lessens and controls weeds, and helps replenish lost nutrients. Without fertilization, weeds thrive in sun-damaged, dry, patchy areas and if left untreated, can overtake the lawn. Ideally, fertilization should be applied by a professional as inexperience can lead to burning or destroying a once healthy lawn. The best products are only available to licensed professionals like GreenTex Landscaping.
The GreenTex Tried and True Annual 7-Step Fertilization/Weed-Control Plan
for North Texas Lawns.
With our 7-Step Program, a thick, healthy, green, weed-free lawn can be achieved, but it doesn’t happen over-night, and when it does, that’s no time to stop treatments. Applications are spaced 5-7 weeks apart and run concurrently, year-after-year as follows:
- Early Spring, Round 1 : Liquid application of a pre-emergent herbicide is applied to help control broadleaf weeds in various shapes and sizes.
- Spring, Round 2: A liquid application of a post-emergent herbicide is used to help control grassy weeds such as dallisgrass, crabgrass, and nutsedge.
- Summer Applications, Rounds 3-6 : Applications of granular slow release fertilizers are used to start the greening up process for the summer to come.
- Late Fall, Round 7: An application of liquid pre-emergent is used to continue the weed control into the winter.
Did you know:
Weeds compete with grass and desirable plants for water, nutrients and sunlight? With thick, healthy grass, weeds will be choked out and won’t have a place to establish themselves in your lawn. While it’s true that a few weeds can be pulled up by hand, because of their deep tap roots, many will grow right back.
Most weeds fall into one of two categories: annual or perennial.
- Annual weeds complete their life cycle in only one season. However, they produce seeds at the end of the growing season to ensure future weed populations. Pre-emergent herbicides are the best defense to inhibit their germination.
- Perennial weeds will survive for many growing seasons once established in the landscape. They reproduce through seeds and underground structures. The most effective way to deal with perennial weeds is with post-emergent herbicides.
Most weeds also breakdown into either broadleaf or grassy categories.
- Broadleaf weeds are seen in many shapes and sizes, and like the name implies, they are generally more wide than the narrower and longer
- Grassy weeds that you see in your lawn. As a general rule, most grassy weed herbicides will not control broadleaf weeds and vice versa.
- Nutsedge is a unique weed in that it is neither broadleaf nor grassy. It falls under the category of a sedge. Sedges are difficult to control as they form underground nutlets containing food reserves for their survival. Treatments provide control of the shoots and leaves above ground, but sedges may require multiple applications due to their ability to regenerate from below the ground.
