Spring is a time of rejuvenation for your lawn in Texas, and it will need several lawn care services to help it successfully start the growing season on the right foot. You should apply fertilizer treatments to your turf in early spring, mid-spring, and late spring. You'll also want to utilize humic acid throughout the spring to ensure your grass can easily absorb all the nutrients that these fertilizer treatments provide. Additionally, you should invest in post-emergent weed control treatments to eliminate any unwanted weeds on your lawn so they can't steal those vital resources from your grass. And finally, you should invest in an iron treatment in mid-to-late spring to help your grass grow green and strong.

Fertilizer Treatments Should Be Applied to Your Lawn in Early Spring, Mid-Spring & Late Spring

Your lawn needs plenty of essential nutrients to thrive, especially as the growing season gets underway. Because of this, you should supply your grass with fertilizer treatments in early spring, mid-spring, and late spring. Fertilizing at the beginning of spring helps your lawn recover from dormancy and kickstarts its new growth. Mid spring is another crucial time to administer a round of fertilizer to your lawn because it will replenish the nutrients that your turf has already used up from the last treatment.

And finally, you should apply one last round of fertilizer to your lawn toward the end of spring. Not only does it continue supplying much-needed nutrients to your grass, but it also prepares it for the summer heat. Summer is when your turf faces some of its toughest challenges, such as drought conditions and increased foot traffic. By fortifying it now, it has a better chance of surviving until fall arrives.

Most fertilizer treatments contain three main nutrients: nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium.

You should apply humic acid throughout the spring months to improve your lawn's nutrient uptake.

Humic acid promotes nutrient absorption by making them more available to plants. It improves the chemical composition of the soil, thereby allowing the roots of your grass to access and maximize these important resources. Using humic acid results in your fertilizer treatments being easier for your lawn to digest and yield better results.

Apply Post-Emergent Weed Control Throughout the Spring Months to Keep Weeds Off Your Lawn

Weeds are persistent plants that threaten to ruin the aesthetics and health of your lawn. They compete with your grass for sunlight, water, and vital nutrients, which can be detrimental during the spring. After all, it's just starting to come out of the winter season, so it'll need every advantage it can get to start the growing season off right and prepare for the upcoming summer. Fortunately, applying post-emergent weed control treatments throughout the spring months ensures that any existing weeds are eliminated so your grass doesn't have to fight with them for the nutrients it desperately needs.

Apply Iron Treatments To Your Lawn In Mid-To-Late Spring

An iron treatment applied to your lawn in mid-to-late spring can help keep your grass green during the summer months. That's because iron plays an important role in photosynthesis, which is what gives plants their vibrant color. When your grass has an adequate supply of iron, it can use the energy produced during photosynthesis to grow nice and strong.
