Lawn Care Tips
After you have created that ideal lawn you have been eyeing for a long time now, the real work of trying to keep it looking its best all year round now begins.
Here are a few tips one could use to prevent the perfect lawn from turning into a dull, weed, and pest-infested mess. The best time to apply these tips is always during the autumn and spring season in order to give the grass a chance to grow throughout summer.
Removing the weeds and thatch.
Weeds, thatch, and moss can negatively affect your lawn since they prevent growth by blocking nutrients and air from getting to the roots. The weeds can be easily removed by hand, while thatch can only be removed by a process referred to as scarification, which involves raking and removing mulch from your lawn.
Most lawns with poor drainage often get waterlogged for hours or even days after a watering session. This can cause health complications if the drainage is not improved.
There are two things that can cause water to build up:
- The soil's ability to absorb water (soil permeability)
This issue can only be resolved through soil aeration, which will improve water absorption and air circulation, hence reducing surface build-up.
- The landscape of the lawn (Garden topography)
This issue can be resolved by fitting gutters and drains to direct excess rainwater away from the lawn.
This process allows the penetration of air, water, and nutrients into the roots. The result is a healthy lawn and a healthy root system.
Over-seeding helps bring tired and worn-out lawns back to life by filling damaged and thinning areas with seeds mixed with fertilizer. Before the lawn is seeded, the lawn needs to be well aerated, mowed, and watered. Once seeded, the lawn will need a top dressing to help keep the seeds nourished in order to encourage germination.
Mowing and edging
It's advisable that when mowing your lawn, you should only remove a third of the grass's length, but how often you need to mow will depend on the current weather and time of year. During colder months, the frequency of mowing should be reduced, and conversely, it should be increased during the summer months.
Feeding and Watering
A variety of fertilizers and grass feeds are available in many gardening shops, but before choosing a certain type of grass feed and fertilizer, you should always research the best feed for your type of grass and soil. It's also advisable to treat your lawn at least twice a year, once during autumn with fertilizer and spring with grass feed.
Watering is essential to your lawn since it helps the grass remain green - the amount and frequency of watering needed to depends on weather and soil conditions.
Top-dressing is used to improve the quality of the existing soil by providing additional water resistance and drainage. To maintain consistency and get the right materials when creating a top-dressing, you should conduct a test on the type of soil in your lawn.
