When to Apply Pre-Emergent in North Texas & Dallas?

Question: When is the best time to apply pre-emergent to your lawn grass in the Dallas and North Texas areas?

Answer: If you do not overseed with winter ryegrass, then pre-emergent should be applied twice per year in north Texas.  You should apply it from August 7- September 7 to stop ugly winter weeds like poa annua (annual bluegrass), dandelions, chickweed, etc. 

The second time to apply pre-emergent in north Texas is in the month of February. This weed control application is primarily made to stop crabgrass, goosegrass, dallasgrass and some other broadleaf weeds. 

It is also important to mix up the brand of pre-emergent you use every couple of years. Weeds can become immune to "medicine" just like viruses and bacteria can in humans. That does not mean you need to stop using your favorite pre-emergent forever, just rotate something else in every few years.
