Houston Lawn Weed Control: Weeds that Sprout in the Fall
Wondering which weeds prefer growing in the cooler temperatures of the fall? These weeds can pop up throughout the autumn season and then survive over the winter by falling into a semi-dormant state. As the weather warms up in early spring, they’ll be ready to take over your lawn. Since they grow slowly during the winter season, you may not even notice they’re there. Plus, they tend to die back during the summer. However, before doing so they flower and then seed, meaning you’ll still have plenty of weeds to deal with come fall.
Prevent these weeds before they take hold of your lawn with our lawn control services at Lawn Doctor of West Houston. We take preventative measures with our professional treatments, including the use of pre-emergent products.
Here are just a few of the plants you’ll want to watch out for this fall:
- Henbit. Henbit is a broadleaf weed with flowers that have a pinkish-purple hue.
- Common chickweed. This flowering weed with white petals has a tendency to creep its way through your yard and can even be short enough that your lawn mower won’t clip it.
- Hairy bittercress. Also with white flowers, this plant germinates in the spring as well as the fall.
- Corn speedwall. You’ll spy this weed by its tiny, light blue flowers. It most often occurs in lawns with sparse turf.
