Lawn Care Tips for Keeping Your Lawn Green At All Times
When it comes to lawn care, most homeowners will agree that the more attention you pay to the lawn, the more beautiful and captivating they will appear. The grass that grows on your lawn needs constant tending to grow healthily and adds to the looks of your lawn. However, rampant use of harsh chemicals and fertilizing salts, improper cutting and watering and irregular attention are some of the factors that can ruin a perfectly good looking lawn.
Choosing the right type of grass and maintaining the right height can make lawn care an effortless task. It is normal for grass to turn slightly brown and dormant especially if you are living in region where summer heat is harsh. But good quality and type of grass will return back to its healthy, green looks quickly when watered regularly and maintained properly. The best time to plant grass depends on whether you live in a warm or cool zone.
Laying sod is a great way to make sure that your lawn grass grows healthily and throughout the year. They are of course more expensive but if they are kept watered they can enhance the looks of your lawn amazingly well. Lawn fertilizers applied to the surface and then raked in below can do wonders to the soil structure. You must make sure that the fertilizer acts as a natural pre-emergent weed and feed and use it before the weed seed germinates.
Lawn mowing is an important aspect of lawn care and one of the most neglected areas. When you scalp a lawn close to the surface, it can make the grass vulnerable to weeds, pests and insects. A high cut lawn will make the whole area look greener and will resist stress and weeds better. Ideally, lawnmower blades must be replaced every season. You can get it sharpened at affordable prices to improve their efficacy. Many homeowners are using a mulching mower because they have no discharge. They have sealed decks that return the clippings to the ground as fine, pulverized powder.
In a wonderful way, these clips take care of half the need of food of your grass in a season. Another advantage of mulching is that it does not cause thatch. They are usually caused by overuse of chemical fertilizers and not returning the natural nutrients back to soil.
Another important aspect of lawn care is watering. You need to water wisely especially when taking care of a new lawn. Short spurts of watering must be avoided at all costs. Deep soaking spray can encourage roots to grow stronger and deeper.
