Are you envious of people who have green lawn? Well, here’s some good news. It’s possible to grow a green lawn by following a few simple tips.
This helps to keep your lawn healthy and encourages new growth. Be sure to mow at the proper height for your grass type and use a sharp blade to ensure a clean cut.
Watering your lawn deeply and infrequently is better than watering it shallowly and frequently. To grow a green lawn, aim to water your lawn deeply once a week, and more frequently during hot, dry spells.
Fertilizing your lawn gives it the nutrients it needs to grow strong and healthy. Choose a fertilizer that’s formulated for your grass type. Follow the instructions on how to use it.
This helps to loosen compacted soil and improve drainage. You can do it with a manual or powered aerator, and it’s best to aearate once a year.
Weeds can compete with your grass for resources, and make your lawn look untidy. You should remove weeds regularly – either by hand or using a herbicide.
How often should you mow your lawn?
This depends on the type of grass you have, the season, and the weather. During the spring and fall, when grass grows more slowly, you should aim to mow every 10 to 14 days. In the summer, when grass grows quickly, you’ll need to mow more frequently – every 5 to 7 days.
It’s important to mow your lawn at the proper height for your grass type. Cutting it too short, makes the grass more susceptible to disease. On the other hand, mowing too high can result in grass that’s prone to weeds.
What is the proper height to mow your lawn?
In general, cool-season grasses such as bluegrass, fescue, and rye should be mowed to a height of 2.5 to 3.5 inches, while warm-season grasses such as Bermuda, St. Augustine, and zoysia should be mowed to a height of 1 to 2 inches.
