Weeds are opportunistic and persistent, stealing whatever space they can on your lawn in Texas to steal nutrients away for themselves. When they show their ugly heads, you'll want to remove them as soon as possible to keep them under control, and there are two ways you can do this - hand-pulling or spraying. Hand-pulling can prove time-consuming and tedious, as you need to manually remove them and ensure you get the entire root, too. Meanwhile, spraying weed control treatments is faster and yields effective results. Another option is to sign up for a professional weed control program to make your life easier and still boast a healthy, weed-free lawn!

Hand-pulling weeds on your lawn is time-consuming and labor-intensive.

Hand-pulling is the most traditional method of removing weeds on your lawn, but it can be more work than it's worth. While it can be effective, it's time-consuming, tedious, and labor-intensive. After all, you have to pull up weeds from the ground manually and ensure you remove the entire root so that it doesn't regrow or spread even more. Additionally, it can prove challenging to utilize this method long-term, especially if you have a large area to tackle.

Spraying weed control treatments is a faster and more effective weed removal method.

Another method of removing weeds on your lawn is to spray weed control treatments. Spraying allows you to eliminate weeds over a large area quicker, plus it's more effective and yields the best results. There are two types of herbicides you can use: pre-emergent and post-emergent.

Pre-emergent weed control treatments create a barrier that prevents pesky weeds from sprouting above the surface in the first place. However, you'll want to apply them at the right time, as they're only effective on those at a certain point in their growth cycle. On the other hand, post-emergents eliminate existing growth on your lawn, which you'll apply directly to it so it seeps into the soil and kills it at its roots. When you utilize both treatments, you can tackle weeds from both ends of their growth cycle and keep your turf weed-free all year!

Some common weeds in Texas include nutsedge, crabgrass, and poa annua.
