Your QuickStart Guide to Lawn Care in Austin, TX

Lawn mowing in Austin is hard. Austin, Texas is located in the central part of the state with a hot brutal summer, a reasonably cold winter, and all sorts of lawn care challenges related to the soil and climate. Plus, from spending a day at Zilker park, to paddleboarding on Ladybird Lake, to catching a show at ACL Live – there are lots of fun distractions around.

This guide distills the important concepts related to lawn care in Austin, TX so you can have your lawn looking its best.

When does lawn care season start in Austin?

While Austin is much warmer than most climates in the US, it doesn’t mean that there isn’t seasonality when it comes to lawn care.

Typically the lawn care season really starts around spring-time. Since we have warm season grasses here in Austin, they don’t grow a whole lot over winter, but by the end of March, most lawns have started to grow. Typically most homeowners will get biweekly this time of year, or weekly if they water regularly or there is more than average rain. This time of year also coincides with ‘cedar fever’ season, which is caused by pollen from the Ashe Juniper tree. With all the leaf blowers and lawn mowers in use, it can be a rough time for those Austin residents who suffer from allergies.

By summer, the pollen is gone and grass continues to grow, that is unless there is little rain and hot sun. Often grass growth will slow and some homeowners need to slow their mowing frequency.

By fall, things are back to where they are in springtime, minus all the pollen. Then as the transition into winter happens, some will cease mowing all-together while others will mow their lawn once a month.

Lawn Mowing in ATX

Growing season doesn’t end for long in Austin, meaning that lawn mowing is a year-round task. You should plan to continue to mow your grass throughout the fall, and sometimes monthly through winter if it is a typical moderate Austin winter. Continue to mow because it helps to control the weeds and increase the density of your grass. Lower your blades down to 2 to 2.5 inches which allows more sunlight to reach the crown of your grass.

It is important to know the recommended mowing height for your grass type. Here are mowing heights for popular grass types in Austin, TX.

  • Augustine – 2 to 2.5 inches
  • Bermudagrass – 1 to 2 inches
  • Zoysia – 1.5 to 2.5 inches
  • Buffalo Grass – 2 to 4 inches

You will need to mow bi-weekly during October and November. Then, plan to mow once a month in December, January, and February to keep your lawn looking nice. Remember to raise your mowing height to help insulate the root system of the grass. Plan to let it grow to the maximum recommended height.

The proper maintenance of your lawn mower is essential as well. Plan to sharpen the blades once a year. Otherwise, your lawn mower might rip and tear your grass rather than cut which can cause the grass to be vulnerable to pests and diseases. Raise or lower your blades, depending on the time of you. If it has been a while, get a tune up done by a professional to keep it running properly.

Core Aeration

Fall is one of the best times to aerate your lawn. Core aeration is a process that prevents soil from becoming too compacted and covered with thatch, which is a layer of roots, stems, and debris that stops water, air, and nutrients from reaching the soil. Core aeration gives your lawn an optimal chance to receive nutrients and water that are necessary to grow all year.

If you forget to aerate in the fall, don’t fret! Spring is a good time as well before the major growing season starts. You can rent aerators at the store, purchase tools to do it yourself or hire a professional. Because it is a time-consuming process, aeration is commonly outsourced to professional lawn services.

Overseeding - An Austin Lawn's Best Friend

After a hot, dry summer, you may need to overseed your lawn. Overseeding is when you fill in bare spots or plant grass seed in a thinned yard. Grass takes damage when the weather is extreme, and it also can take place after a rough winter. Abnormally cold winters can kill your grass.

You have to plan the best time to plant grass to ensure it establishes before the temperatures increase during the summertime. Austin homeowners should plant grass seed in the spring or the fall. It is too hot to plant in the summer. The fall work as well because both seasons offer cooler temperatures and moist soil.

Here are some tips for the best results during overseeding.

  • Mow your existing lawn as short as possible, which will allow the new grass to take over.
  • Take the grass to remove any dead grass or debris. - - Grass seeds need to come in contact with soil to germinate.
  • Sow by hand or use a spreader. Make sure you try to spread the seeds evenly.
  • Water the grass seeds until the soil is moist, but not soggy. Make sure you continue to water once per day.
