Weeds are a nuisance year-round in Texas, which includes during the fall. Because of this, investing in weed control is worth it! Without them, these pesky plants will steal vital nutrients and resources from your grass, hindering its health and making it ill-prepared for the winter. Weeds also drag down your lawn's curb appeal, so utilizing post-emergent weed control treatments in the fall will ensure it can absorb everything it needs to survive dormancy and look neat and pristine. Additionally, if you leave weeds on your lawn in the fall and throughout winter, you'll still be stuck dealing with them come spring. Rather than having more to tackle at the start of the new growing season, it's best to get a handle on them ahead of time.
Existing weeds in the fall will steal nutrients from your grass, hindering its health before winter.
One of the biggest reasons why investing in weed control in the fall is worth it is that weeds will steal vital nutrients and resources from your grass. When this happens, they hinder its health and weaken it before winter; this is the last thing your lawn needs, as this season is already challenging, so without the proper resources, it becomes more susceptible to issues during the winter.
Because of this, you'll want to utilize post-emergent weed control treatments. These treatments are applied directly onto any existing growth, where it'll then seep into the soil and kill it at its roots. By eliminating weeds in the fall, you can ensure your lawn can absorb everything it needs to build up its strength before dormancy.
Weeds drag down your lawn's curb appeal.
Another reason to invest in weed control in the fall is because weeds are unsightly plants that can quickly drag down your lawn's curb appeal. After all, their ugly heads disturb the uniformity of your grass, making it look messy and unkempt. However, weed control treatments will target them so your turf stays weed-free and looks its best as it transitions into winter.
If you leave weeds on your lawn in the fall, you'll have to deal with them in the spring.
If you leave weeds on your lawn in the fall and throughout the winter, you'll still be stuck dealing with them come spring. Not only that, it may also lead to an even higher population, which isn't the best way for your grass to start the new growing season and leaves more work for you. For that reason, weed control is a worthwhile investment! Eliminating any existing growth in the fall is highly beneficial for limiting the number that pops up again in the spring and giving your lawn a good start to the growing season.
