Southern lawns, especially in Texas, don’t often face the sub-zero temperatures and climate conditions necessary to kill off and prevent any chances of weed growth. In fact, fall and winter weed control is just as important for your lawn care regimen as spring and summer weed control, however, winter is one of the most commonly neglected seasons for weed treatment.
Getting a jump-start with pre-emergent winter weed control and additional broadleaf weed management solutions is imperative because Austin and the surrounding Texas areas have unique climate conditions that allow for the growth of winter weeds, also known as broadleaf weeds, which reproduce or germinate during the late fall and early winter, creating a mess of weeds that lie dormant around your Austin property. This provides quite an unwanted surprise when spring comes around, and your lawn becomes filled with dandelions, ragweed, thistles, clover, bluegrass, and other invasive weeds.
Types of Winter Weeds
Magic Pest and Lawn’s weed control and lawn care experts have both the knowledge and industry-leading weed killer products and treatments to help you identify and control winter weeds on your Austin property. Here are some common broadleaf weeds we prevent and control:
Dandelions are one of the most common types of weeds, and some of the most difficult to prevent and treat. Winter is a great time for pre-emergent herbicides to prevent dandelions from taking over your lawn in the warmer months. It is best to begin dandelion control before the yellow flowers turn to seed and spread like wildfire across your lawn.
Texas is home to over 10 types of thistle, which is why our weed management teams have become experts in thistle control for your Austin lawns. Thistles can grow very large and quickly overpower your lawns and gardens. We customize your thistle control treatments depending on the type of thistle, the prevalence of the infestation, and the stage of growth of the thistle plants. Thistle control can be competed by manual removal of the weed, herbicides, or specialized weed sprays.
Killing clover in the lawn is important to some people because these small round pink or white flowers can attract bees, which is a danger for those with bee allergies. There are many methods of clover control, such as keeping your lawn thick and nourished—clover thrives in under-fed lawns—however, if you are constantly battling clover weeds, it may be time to consult Magic Pest and Lawn for the most appropriate and effective method of clover control.
Common chickweed is a resilient winter annual weed that can even grow in below-freezing temperatures. Often found under shaded areas on the sides of your home or under trees, it’s important to prevent and treat chickweed (and its similar cousin, henbit) in the early stages of growth in the late winter/early spring while the plants are young. we perform chickweed control by digging it out or using our low-toxicity weed killer treatments. The longer you wait for chickweed control, the more resilient these weeds become, making them increasingly tougher to kill.
Annual Bluegrass Control
Annual bluegrass control is known to be particularly tricky and often requires professional weed. Annual bluegrass is incredibly fast-growing (sometimes up to 15 inches tall if left unattended), and spreads quickly, leaving large, unsightly bare spots on your lawn when it dies. If you have a problem with annual bluegrass, consulting our licensed lawn care experts on the type of targeted post-emergent herbicide treatments to use is important because annual bluegrass control treatments can depend on the type of grass you grow on your lawn.
Ragweed control is incredibly important especially in residential areas, because many people have highly developed allergies to ragweed. Ragweed grows in heavy, uncrowded soil that may have low fertility. A ragweed plant can create more than 60,000 seeds if it reaches maturity, so it is important to enlist professional ragweed control services at the first sign of ragweed. Some types of ragweed have built a resistance to common weed killers, but Magic Pest and Lawn utilizes special ragweed control methods to treat even the toughest ragweed plants.
