Many of us have probably marveled over the lush green lawns at the golf course and would love to have such lovely grass. So, is there a way to get the same wonderful grass?
There are many things that you need to take into account when you decide to plant grass. There are factors that you need to consider in order to make sure that your grass grows well and does not die just a few days after planting it. First of all, the grass seeds that you choose should be able to grow in your particular climate. There are various types of seeds that one can use, but you should try to find one that is hardy but not dull or rough.
Once you have planted your seeds you need to make sure that you follow a strict watering schedule. However, you need to make sure that when you water your grass you know which type of soil you are using. You need to know the soil type because different types need to have certain amounts of water, if you over-saturate the soil with water it will become water logged and in turn will rot the roots of your grass.
Just as watering your grass is important, so is fertilizing it. Fertilizer gives your growing grass all the necessary nutrients that it needs to stay green and to grow fast and thick. However, you need to make sure that you buy a fertilizer that will not burn your grass because sometimes burn damage is irreversible. Most people only fertilize their lawns once per annum, but it has been shown that if you fertilize your lawn about four times per annum then you will have greener and lusher grass.
Mowing your lawn is very important, but you should never mow your grass too short. The reason you should not do this is that your grass will become weak and will not grow properly. This is due to the fact the root system has become weak and cannot absorb all the nutrients that it needs. So, now you know how to take care of your lawn so that it can grow green and lush.
