Spring has Sprung at Lawns of Dallas!

Home / Commercial / Spring has Sprung at Lawns of Dallas!
I think it’s safe to say 2021 started off with a bang! With the Winter storm behind us, many of our clients are forced to do something with their landscaping. Should you remove plant material that appears to be dead, or continue to wait it out and give them a few more weeks? The answer is likely, both – and highly dependent upon which plant variety. If you need a second opinion, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us (214)357-6522
When in doubt, do the scratch test. Scratch the surface of a stem, and if you see green – the plant is likely not dead. If you see brown, the plant needs to be replaced. Check out our Instagram @LawnsOfDallas for a tutorial on the scratch test. Watch video here!
