Residential lawns can get out of hand fairly quickly if they’re not properly maintained. Weeds can grow out of control and consume nutrients intended for healthy grass. Poisonous plants such as poison ivy, poison sumac, and poison oak can creep into walkways and then be tracked into the home via pets and shoes. Shrubs and small trees can outgrow intended areas and provide protection to rodents and other unwanted guests. Certain Dallas lawn treatment companies can rehabilitate dehydrated and feral lawns back to proper health by either a proactive or reactive treatment program.
The proactive process can be pricier, but it involves a comprehensive treatment for the lawn. Preemptive and pre-emergent herbicides are sprayed across the entire lawn to prevent weeds from ever showing. The reactive process is less expensive than the proactive process and involves only spot-treating problem areas. When weeds crop up through healthy grass, the lawn care crew hand-sprays and isolates the area to control growth. Lawn treatment companies can also employ the process of aeration by extracting plugs of soil, which then allows root systems to grow and lets oxygen and water into the soil.
