With frequent changes in weather seasonally -- even daily -- knowing what your Oklahoma City lawn needs can be challenging. If you're struggling to keep your turf healthy and green, LawnStarter offers routine lawn maintenance, landscaping, weed control, and more.
Best Grass Types for Oklahoma City: Warm-season grasses are the best choice for lawns in OKC. Your best options would be bermudagrass, guymon bermudagrass, sunturf grass, buffalograss, and Zoysiagrass. These all do well with a lot of sun and high temperatures.
Summer Lawn Care Tips for Oklahoma City: In the summer, when the grass grows quickly, you'll want to mow at least once a week. But remember: don't cut your grass more than one-third of its height. Doing so will stunt its growth. Apply fertilizer as often as once a month, if your lawn needs it. Get rid of the weeds and be on the lookout for brown spots and bald patches. If you notice any areas of concern, treat them as soon as possible. Last, but not least, water your lawn. We recommend giving your lawn a good soaking every 2-3 days rather than a light sprinkle every day. This allows the water to saturate the ground and reach down to the grass's deep roots, which is more beneficial.
Fall Lawn Care Tips for Oklahoma City: Before the cold temperatures arrive, you'll need to prep your lawn so it survives the winter. Rake leaves and clear away any yard debris; if left on the lawn, they'll block the sun from reaching the grass. Aerate and dethatch your lawn. Getting rid of the thick undergrowth and poking holes into the soil allow your lawn to absorb sun and nutrients throughout the colder months.
When is the Best Time to Plant Grass? Whether you're starting a new lawn or reviving an old one, the best time to plant grass is when the soil temperature is consistently between 68-95 degrees. For Oklahoma City, this would mean you'd want to lay the seed after May 1 and before July 1.
Common Lawn Diseases: Dollar spot, brown patch, blight, and leaf spot are fungal diseases that affect warm-season grasses and cause discoloration of the grass.
