• Care For Trees In The Fall


    This is my favorite time of year.  The leaves trade their green coats for yellow, orange and red ones. This is also the most important time of year to fertilize your trees and shrubs and show them some extra love! 

    First let’s talk TIMING

    Just like bears need extra food before hibernation, this is the best time of year to feed your trees and shrubs.   From now until the first leaf and flower bloom next spring, your trees and shrubs will be absorbing every last bit of nutrients and phosphates that they can get a hold of.  These nutrients are needed to produce the brightest colors, strongest branches, and strongest trunks possible. Without this supply of organic nutrients, your trees and shrubs will NOT give you their full potential, and they will be more susceptible to disease and insect infestation throughout the spring and summer months. Irish Green’s Organic Root and Soil Drench is exactly what your Trees and Shrubs need this time of year.



    Specifically, what is in Irish Green’s Root and Soil Drench?

    Our root and soil drench is a compost tea based product that contains many naturally occurring, LIVING microorganisms.  In addition: Kelp, Yucca,  Humic Fulvic and Amino Acids, and many more.

    FUN FACT: Because of all these living microorganisms and probiotics (think yogurt) in our product, we keep the organic base of our program in a giant refrigerator! 


    Why is Irish Green’s Tree & Shrub Root and Soil Drench (Fertilizer) the Best in the OKC metro?

    Our Fall Root and Soil Drench is all organic.  Our application is jam packed with live organics and probiotics that assist in keeping your soil balanced to provide:

    • Better Uptake of Water and Nutrients  
    • Better Survival through Seasonal Conditions 
    • Bigger, Healthier Plants and Foliage Provide a Beautiful Landscape 

    To sum it up, Irish Green Lawn Care’s Root and Soil Drench is exactly what your trees and shrubs need and applied at the best time of year -- Fall! A little TLC in the fall = a beautiful landscape in the spring and summer. 



    If you love crape mytrles (as we do) and have any on your property, we HIGHLY recommend a Dormant Oil treatment for your crapemyrtles in approximately January.  The dormant oil application is recommended to control crape myrtle bark scale, which is spreading through the OKC metro like wildfire.  If you have any questions regarding Crape Myrtle Bark Scale or would like to get on the schedule for this treatment, please email Shar at smclaughlin@irishgreenlawncare.com  (Tale-tell signs of Crape Myrtle Bark Scale: black soot and small white felt-like spots) 


    On a Personal Note

    When my husband (and business partner) first started using the Root and Soil Drench on our own trees and shrubs, we were really amazed with how much larger and greener everything was. (And are still amazed every Spring/Summer).  It is like my landscape went up a level.  My trees were noticeably a darker green.  My flowering trees and bushes were noticeably more healthy and beautiful than they had ever been before.  Hands down, this is our FAVORITE tree and shrub fertilizer.  - Shar McLaughlin

  • Fall Overseeding


    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. 



    • 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!




    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.
