The home lawn is an integral part of the total landscape.It provides a setting for trees and ornamentals, as well as the home. The lawn also provides a setting for outdoor family activity. A well-maintained lawn increases the value of residential property. Successful home-lawn management begins by growing a turfgrass adapted to the wide fluctuations in temperature and moisture found in Oklahoma. It should also be suited to your personal needs and interests, as well as to any physical or environmental limitations of the site, such as shade, no supplemental water, or poor soil conditions.
