Broadleaf weeds are a common lawn weed and while they are usually easy to control, they are more often a symptom of other problems with the lawn or soil. Our trained staff can identify those conditions whether it is an imbalance in the pH levels, soil compaction, low nitrogen levels or just poor drainage. Here are some of the more common lawn weeds found in North Texas.
Chickweed— an annual broadleaf weed that germinates during the fall, grows during the winter, produces seed and then dies by early summer. Gro Lawn can control this weed with a pre-emergence weed control applied in early fall.
Clover— a perennial broadleaf weed that usually sprouts in the fall. Established patches can be controlled with a post-emergence broadleaf weed control spray. May be applied any time during the active growing season.
Dandelions— a broadleaf weed that flowers from early spring through summer. Established plants can be controlled with a post-emergent weed control that can be applied any time during the active growing season.
