After a beautiful spring and a warm, muggy summer, many residents of Tulsa are ready to stop caring for their home’s lawn and landscaping. However, it’s precisely at this time of year that the first steps towards a beautiful lawn for the future need to take place.

Most importantly, you don’t want to let the incredible time, resources, and monetary investment that you have invested in your lawn go to waste. Starting all over again next spring when grass sprouts and the weather becomes more temperate requires a lot more effort than nurturing and caring for your lawn through the fall and winter.

That’s where Lawnovations come in. At Lawnovations, we provide everything your outdoor space needs from lawn care to lighting to landscaping and pest control. If it can help to make your grass greener and your outdoor space more attractive, then we can help.

We’ve put our two-plus decades of experience keeping Tulsa’s lawns beautiful to work for countless families, and today, we’re going to share a blog that highlights some of the tips that can help you get the most out of your lawn by investing a bit of time during the off-season. But, if you don’t have the time, energy, or desire to handle these tasks yourself, don’t worry. Lawnovations is just a call away, and we can do everything you need to ensure a lush, green, weed-free lawn in the year to come. Get in touch today.

Manage Your Weeds

Weeds thrive in the summer heat of Oklahoma. If you’re not consistent about pulling weeds in your yard and treating for them effectively, you can find yourself overwhelmed by the amount of work you’ll have to do. Worse yet, weeds are excellent at stealing the moisture and nutrients that your lawn needs to stay healthy in the autumn. Don’t neglect this crucial part of fall lawn care at your home, even during the cooler fall months when it is easy to assume they will die off on their own.

Fertilize Your Lawn

Fertilizing your lawn in the fall is the best way to make sure that your grass has the nutrients it needs to re-establish itself successfully come spring. When shopping for fertilizer, make sure to talk to your local lawn and garden store about the kind of grass that you have growing in your yard. Some varieties are more particular than others, and we don’t want you wasting your time and money. Lawnovations is known for its affordable and effective lawn fertilizer services. If you’d like the pros to help you with handling this or any other lawn care service, then we are the right lawn fertilizer company for you.

Topdress Your Lawn

Topdressing your lawn with compost is an excellent way to give it a shot in the arm and see a fairly quick “green-up” on spots that have been struggling. Make sure to evenly distribute the compost across the areas that need it most, and don’t lay it on too thick.

Continue to Water If Warm, Dry Weeks Turn Up

Continuing to water your lawn can be an important part of keeping your grass green, healthy, and ready to shine come spring. The days are a little shorter, and the temperatures can get below freezing, but if there are warmer weeks that are free of rain or melting snow, you’ll still want to provide a small amount of water for your dormant grass. If you rely on an automatic watering system, you’ll want to remember to adjust it — both to avoid frozen irrigation piping and overhydrating your lawn.
