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.

    You used to sell 7-2-2 fertilizer that contained guano. I tried the “replacement”, and it’s not anywhere near as good of a fertilizer. Also, the 7-2-2 had an added benefit – once you put that on your plants, the rabbits wouldn’t touch them. We were the only house around with pretty flowers. Can we get our hands on the old, good fertilizer? Thanks.
