Cultivating and maintaining a lawn is part of home landscaping. After all, homeowners are aware of how well-designed landscaping can increase the charm of the sidewalk and increase the value of a residential property. It is often observed that within months of growing a lawn, it starts to turn brown and gradually dries up. The ruinous state of the home lawn becomes more evident if the grass on the neighbor’s side is fresh and greener.
Maintaining a lawn seems like a tiring task, but you are not expected to do it a little at a time and not allow it to pile up. In addition, the plethora of gardening tools on the market facilitates lawn care activities. General maintenance tips that can be included in the work schedule are discussed.
Water is essential for plant growth. Grass roots need adequate moisture to grow healthy and retain color. The climate determines how often the lawn should be watered. If your city enjoys a humid and humid climate, irrigation should be done a weekly or biweekly routine. If you live in dry regions with high temperatures, water the grass at least 3-4 times a week.
Examining soil conditions is one way of determining whether the water supply is adequate, in excess or below. Sweetened soil is an indication of excess water supply while dry, flaky and cracked soil shows a private lawn of water. The soil should be solid and dark in color. In the hot summer months, you should water the grass more often. Early morning is the best time to water because the evaporation rate is the lowest. New reseed patches should be tarnished at least 2-3 times a day. The new patches are very sensitive and die early if left untreated.
Fertilization provides the grass with the necessary nutrition and allows it to grow in a healthy and green way. Lightly water the crops after spraying the fertilizer. A lawn should be fertilized four times a year, particularly in the first year.
Bald spots scattered here and there seem ugly and messy. You will need to resize these areas. Sowing should be done in January or February or late summer. It shouldn’t be done during the winter. Another tip is to choose a variety of grass reserved for your area and climatic conditions.
As we do for our hair, the lawn must also be cut regularly. Cutting or mowing the grass gives it a full and rich appearance and allows it to maintain its healthy dark green color. You should allow the lawn to grow up to 3-4 inches before it has its first cut. Afterwards, cut every 10-15 days. Grass cuttings can be left behind in the soil. It will turn into compost and further fertilize the grass.
Weeds that grow together with grass sprouts seriously destroy a lawn. Absorbs nutrients from the soil. To add their ruffled roots, suffocate the grass roots and slow down their growth. Weeding helps get rid of these unwanted weeds. Weeding is done manually. Many use a herbicide together with fertilizer to prevent the growth of weeds. You can also use a weed eater. It is a tool for garden care powered by an electric or gas engine.
In addition to sowing, watering, fertilizing, mowing and wedding, you should also periodically aerate and dethatch the soil.
