Lawn Fertilization & Weed Control

  • Fall 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.

  • Oh Fall….. Kids Go Back To School, Temps Drop, & Time to Overseed Fescue Lawns

     

     As temperatures drop to an enjoyable level in Central Oklahoma, it is such a perfect time of year to enjoy our green spaces and overseed with fescue.  Sept 22 is officially the first day  of Fall and approximately the same time we start our overseedings with fescue for shade areas.  In Central Oklahoma, approximately Sept 10  through Oct 15 is the best time to overseed (rest depends on Mother Nature). Because of this time restraint,  we offer this  service only to our existing customers.  Mother Nature could open this window a little earlier this year, so it would be very helpful if you can let us know by Sept 1 if you would like to get on this schedule.

     Fescue grass is a popular choice in Oklahoma  for shady areas (sides of house, under trees)  where Bermuda grass won't grow.  Fescue is my favorite grass in my yard because the  blades are wide and the grass stays green all year.  (This is also my favorite spot to take  pictures of our grandchildren).

     

    Already have some fescue?

    We recommend a fescue "touch-up" overseeding EVERY FALL to keep it lush and bare-foot ready.  As fescue grows in clumps, rather than vining-out like Bermuda grass, it does not "spread" like Bermuda.  Additionally fescue is a cool season grass, so our  100 degree temps is tough on fescue, and even with the most reliable irrigation schedule, some fescue will die out each summer. 

     

    Do you have bare areas with sparse or no grass at all due to excessive shade?

    You have two choices. To lay sod or overseed?  Overseeding is much less expensive but will require you to water it morning and night every day for about 3 weeks or it will not germinate.  When we overseed, we aerate, distribute seed, and apply starter fertilizer so our premium seed has the best chance of sprouting.
