Lawn Health Tip – How to Get Rid of Spurge Weed in Your Lawn

In today’s video, we want to tell you about spurge, a fast-growing weed we see in late summer here in North Texas. Spurge tends to pop up after summer rain when we also have high temperatures and humidity. Spurge is a tough weed because it grows low to the ground and spreads fast! If you are not on top of it, it can spread through your lawn before you realize you have a severe problem.

The good news is that it is not that difficult of a weed to treat. You can get rid of it pretty quickly, with your most significant challenge being you can’t prevent it, only treat it once it has come up on your lawn.

If you have a lawn health, landscape, or sprinkler question or concern give us a call us at 972-495-6990 or email Info@VillageGreen-Inc.com.

How Do You Get Rid of Nutsedge in your North Texas Lawn?

Nutsedge is a weed we see a lot of in the summer months in North Texas. It is a dark-green leafed weed that looks a lot like grass that is sticking straight up. But nutsedge isn’t a grass even though it is usually mistaken for a grassy weed. If you look closely at or feel nutsedge, you’ll notice the leaf isn’t flat, and it is triangular – that’s what makes it different from a grassy weed (they have flat-bladed leaves.) Another annoying trait of nutsedge is that it grows remarkably fast once cut (which drives homeowners nuts!) Another reason nutsedge often goes unchecked is that homeowners do not understand that it is not a grassy weed and try to treat it with a grassy weed product which will not work.

So how do you get rid of nutsedge? The truth is there isn’t a product that kills it. And trying to pull it up by the roots is not a good idea because nutsedge has nuts attached to the roots. You can pull up the first one, but if you don’t get the second one, and in our North Texas clay soil, you rarely get the second one, you will end up splitting it, resulting in even more nutsedge.

The best tip is to go with a product that will stunt it (hopefully for the season.) You can learn more about these products in today’s video.

If you are tired of messing with nutsedge and other weeds, check out our affordable lawn health plans, or better yet, call 972-495-6990 or email Info@VillageGreen-Inc.com for a complimentary lawn consultation.

Landscape Tip: Use Black Stained Mulch to Create a Landscape that Pops!

Today we wanted to show you a new product we’re using in our landscapes, black stained mulch. It is a fine shredded hardwood, organic mulch that still breaks down and provides good nutrients back into the soil. The reason we like to use it is that the black color really makes our landscapes pop! It makes the plants stand out and creates a unique look to our landscapes.
