R & O's Top 8 Early Spring Lawncare Tips


  1. To prevent crabgrass & grassburs, apply pre-emergent now before weed seeds germinate (“emerge”). Do this ASAP, ideally before mid-late March as germination peaks. Earlier applications generally have best results.

  2. Scalp your lawn to remove winter-killed stubble & common broadleafed weeds, like henbit (scalloped leaves with purple flowers).

  3. Remove winter damage from shrubs, vines & groundcovers to clean them up before new growth starts.

  4. Remove & replace plantings that were killed or damaged beyond repair in the cold North Texas winter.

  5. Prune & reshape spring-flowering shrubs & vines immediately after blooming to correct erratic growth & keep them tidy.

  6. Fertilize flowerbeds, groundcover beds, & lawns with high-nitrogen fertilizer to provide nutrients to fuel the burst of spring growth.

  7. Apply broadleafed weedkiller spray to control non-grassy weeds like clover, dandelions, & chickweed.

  8. Aerate lawns to allow water & fertilizer to penetrate built-up thatch into soil. Read our blog for more information on the aeration process.
