February Field Guide: 10 Ways to SUPERCHARGE Your Lawn!

In February, Texas lawns require some specific care to ensure they thrive throughout the year. Here are some recommended tasks for SUPERCHARGING your Texas lawn during February:

1. Weed Control: Early spring is an ideal time to start controlling weeds before they have a chance to take over. Apply pre-emergent herbicides to prevent weed seeds from germinating.

2. Fertilization: Apply a slow-release nitrogen fertilizer to promote healthy growth as your grass begins to come out of dormancy. Make sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions for application rates.

3. Aeration: If your soil is compacted, consider aerating your lawn. This process helps loosen the soil, allowing air, water, and nutrients to penetrate more effectively to the grass roots.

4. Overseeding: If you have warm-season grasses like Bermuda or Zoysia, overseeding with cool-season grasses like perennial ryegrass can help maintain a green lawn throughout the winter months. February is a good time to overseed before temperatures begin to rise.

5. Mowing: As temperatures begin to rise and grass starts to grow again, you may need to start mowing your lawn. Set your mower blade to the appropriate height for your grass type and avoid cutting more than one-third of the grass blade at a time.

6. Watering: Adjust your watering schedule based on the weather conditions. During cooler periods, your lawn may not need as much water, but make sure it receives enough to prevent it from drying out.

7. Soil Testing: Test your soil to determine its pH and nutrient levels. This information will help you make informed decisions about fertilizer applications and other soil amendments.

8. Disease Prevention: Keep an eye out for signs of lawn diseases such as brown patch or dollar spot. Proper maintenance practices, such as adequate watering and mowing, can help prevent these issues.

9. Edge and Trim: Define the borders of your lawn by edging along sidewalks, driveways, and landscaping beds. Trim any overgrown vegetation around these areas to give your lawn a tidy appearance.

10. General Cleanup: Remove any debris, such as fallen leaves or branches, from your lawn. This will prevent them from smothering the grass and allow for better air circulation.

By following these tips, you can help your Texas lawn thrive and SUPERCHARGE it for the upcoming growing season.
