You’re probably seeing masses of purple flowers (henbit) everywhere and lots of dandelions. These are broadleaf weeds, and the application we are currently applying contains a post-emergent weed control to take care of the ones present in your lawn. Also included is the second pre-emergent for crabgrass. (Unfortunately, there is no pre-emergent for broadleaf weeds.)
Please remember that after we spray your lawn for weeds, they won’t just disappear! With the cool night temperatures, they may not even turn brown. They will have stopped growing, though, and once you mow the lawn, they will be gone.
Many people mow on a schedule, like once per week. But the grass needs mowed when it needs mowed. If it looks like it’s getting high or you can see weeds going to seed, mow it. Mowing frequently is a great deterrent to weeds, and it encourages your bermuda to grow sideways and spread out, giving you a thick, lush lawn.
NOTE: Mowing and watering properly can make a huge difference in how good your lawn looks! Mother Nature has your back on the watering for a while, so be sure to hold up your side with the mowing!
