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