Lawn Fertilization & Weed Control

  • Time For Overseeding!

    Do you have shady areas in your lawn with little or no grass?  Overseeding with fescue in the fall is a great solution.

         

     

    Info About Bermuda Grass:

    • The most popular grass in Oklahoma for sunny areas is Bermuda
    • But Bermuda grass does NOT grow well in shady areas (under trees or sides shaded by the house)
    • SOLUTION: fescue grass is popular in Oklahoma for shady areas of the lawn

     

    Do you already have some fescue?

     Fescue grass does NOT spread like Bermuda and if it dies it will not come back the next season like Bermuda.  It is normal for some fescue to die each summer due to our intense Oklahoma heat, which is ”the why” we recommend a “touch-up” fall fescue overseeding each year.

     

    Fescue in the Winter

    In the winter, fescue will stay green all winter but the growth will slow down tremendously.  We normally don’t need to do much to the fescue in the winter, except we will water it occasionally if we get a few nice 50-60 degree days. 

     

     

    FUN FESCUE FACTS

    • It stays green all winter!
    • The blades of grass are wide, which adds to its beauty. 
    • My fescue is my favorite place to take pictures of my grand babies and pets!

     

     

     

    Recommendations: 

     

    If you already have fescue, Irish Green recommends that you have a touch-up overseeding done every fall.  Since fescue is a cool season grass and Oklahoma has really hot summers, fescue needs to be overseeded every fall to keep it lush, healthy, and less weeds.    

     

    COST= $65 per 1,000 sq feet. 

     

    If your shady areas (under trees and near house) have mostly bald areas with no grass, the first time, we will aerate, overseed, and put down starter fertilizer/organics.  Then the only trick is it cannot dry out. These areas will need to be watered 10-15 minutes in morning and evening for about 2-3 weeks (until fescue is a couple inches tall). Cost=$150 per 1,000 sq feet.

     

    As fescue is a cool season grass, we recommend overseedings to be done between Sept 15 – Oct 15th.   

     

    If you have any additional questions or would like to get a quote or scheduled for the overseeding program, please contact us through email or give us a call.

  • Grub Worms- The Ultimate Grass Eating Champions!

     

     

    If you live in Oklahoma, chances are you have seen or heard of grub worms. They are thick, white worms that have small yellow heads and live in the soil.  

     

    •  Everyone has grubs in their lawn, even after a grub preventative treatment has been applied.  If I went out to my lawn right now and dug a small hole in the soil, I would probably find a few grubs. The problem begins when the grub population gets too large. The grubs eat too many roots of the grass which causes the grass to lose its ability to reach the nutrients in the soil, and in the end, causes the grass to die.

     

    • A lawn with grub damage often has large areas where the grass has died, and when the grub damage is severe you can pick the grass up like a blanket off of the ground. (See picture.)  Also when you step on the area that has grub damage, it may feel soft and squishy.

     

    • Lastly, if your grub population becomes too large in the summer, grub damage to your lawn can be seen into late summer, often becoming most severe as late as the fall and early next spring.  (These grubs can be quite aggravating if you have spent all summer caring for your lawn.)

     

     

                 

     

     

     

     Irish Green Lawn Care has a Preventative Grub Treatment that we HIGHLY recommend to all of our customers. Unfortunately you won't know you have a grub problem until you see the damage, and by then the damage is already done. So yes, we recommend that ALL OUR CUSTOMERS get a grub preventative one time, each year.

     

    Our grub preventative application needs to be applied once a year, in June/early July.  The treatment is twice the price of your lawn application and it is very effective. An added bonus, if you often have issues with moles, gophers, skunks digging in your lawn, these critters are going after the grubs in your lawn.  If you do a grub preventative treatment each year, your lawn will look less tasty and the critters will move on.

     

     If you have any questions or would like to get on the schedule for a  Preventative Grub Treatment please contact our office.  The best "window of time" for this preventative treatment is running out.  We highly recommended it is applied with your Round 3 treatment or in June/July.
