Top 4 Lawn Products for North Texas

A little work now means fewer weeds later

It’s time to treat your lawn. Again. Yes, I know it feels like you just did that back in the spring, maybe even gave it a bit of fertilizer in mid-summer, but now fall is approaching, so prep your spreader and go forth!

Why? Because a little work now means fewer weeds later. Come winter, bright green, cool-season weeds stick out like a sore thumb on a lawn of dormant turf grass, as do those warmer season weeds that begin sprouting a month or more before your lawn wakes up next spring.

What to do? We recommend an application of any of the following 4 products according to label directions. They’ll prevent weeds from popping up, and/or help your lawn recover from the heat and stress of summer.
