Preparing Your Lawn for the Fall - Warm Season Grasses

Warm-season grasses usually go dormant in winter and remain so until temperatures warm in the spring. In the deepest southern regions dormancy may not occur. In fact, lawns may still need to be cut during the winter months. Avoid fertilizing a warm season turfgrass in the fall, as it undergoes a hardening-off process to prepare it for winter, and doing so can interfere with that process. However, you can overseed with ryegrass to provide winter color. Be sure to over seed with annual ryegrass versus perennial. Annual ryegrass lasts until the heat returns, while perennial will continue to thrive and prevent warm-season grass from thriving.
