It's that time of year in Texas (and everywhere else north of the equator). Spring is springing, grass is growing, and weeds are taunting. As a homeowner with a sizeable yard on both an incline and a corner, but whose knowledge of intricate lawn management is low, my attunement to Abilene area nurseries is high.

Below you'll find a variety of Abilene greenhouses, nurseries, and garden centers, with myriad offerings of plants, pots, seeds, and know-how. Whether you're looking for sustenance to grow in your garden, flora to pretty up the flower beds, or a way to take down the dandelions and their weedy counterparts, these companies in the Big Country are in the business of helping green the scene of Abilene.

Before making a trip to the nursery however, here are some basic ways to prep your yard for springtime growth:

Rake

Clearing out old leaves and such allows fresh air and sunlight to work it's natural magic on plants.

Mow

Trimming the grass regularly encourages healthy growth.

Seed

Look for grass seed appropriate to Texas climate and distribute on bare patches in the yard.

Water

If you want a green lawn, you'll have to let it drink.
