Fall in Oklahoma is a beautiful time of the year - colorful leaves adorn the trees, and the weather is cooling down. With fall just around the corner, it's also a great time to fertilize your lawn one last time before the winter. Fertilizing your lawn in the fall will supply it with the nutrients that it needs to help it recover from the summer heat and strengthen it to prevent it from falling victim to spring dead spot. However, that's not all! These nutrients will be just what your lawn needs to make it through the winter season; it'll store and use them as necessary to stay healthy.


Fertilizing your lawn in the fall will help it recover from the summer heat.

Here in Oklahoma, we have cool-season grass, and the summer heat can take a toll on the grass in our area. After all, it's better suited for cooler weather and is under immense stress when it's hot. Fortunately, fertilizing your lawn in the fall will help it recover from the summer heat; it'll resupply your turf with nutrients like nitrogen and potassium. These nutrients are crucial to replenishing its beautiful green color and helping to strengthen your grass after the stress it endured.


Fertilizing your lawn in the fall can help prevent it from falling victim to spring dead spot.

Spring dead spot in lawn in Oklahoma City, OK.

Spring dead spot is a common lawn disease that starts to develop in the fall and targets lawns with weak root systems. However, fall fertilization can help prevent your lawn from falling victim to spring dead spot, as it'll help your grass develop deep roots and strengthen it to be more resistant to stressors - including lawn diseases like spring dead spot.

You can apply a preventative fungicide treatment in the fall to ensure that spring dead spot doesn't become an issue for your lawn.


Fertilizing in the fall supplies your lawn with the nutrients it needs to survive the winter season.

Wintertime brings snow, ice, and more snow - you can't give your lawn the TLC it needs and deserves when it goes dormant during the winter season. Because of this, you should fertilize your lawn one last time in the fall. Your lawn needs to store nutrients to feed off them throughout the winter; these nutrients will be just enough to help keep your grass healthy and survive the season. It's also important to use a slow-release fertilizer to gradually release nutrients, rather than all at once, to provide a consistent supply that lasts the entire season.
