Caring for your lawn is like caring for a very special person you love. You must give it some special attention so that it will grow out to be beautiful. For beginners, you might want to take a look at these basic lawn care tips that a lawn owner should know:
Fertilizers are food for the grasses and plants in your lawn. These fertilizers may be organic materials like fruit skins and other biodegradable materials. Inorganic fertilizers are plant foods which have a mix of chemical substances in it. Either of these two will be enough for the grasses in your lawn to grow. The tip about feeding is to do it regularly. Most lawn experts prefer a monthly feeding of the grasses to expect better care and results.
Almost 70 percent of our body is water and it is what keeps us standing along with some other important parts of the body. Like in plants, water is the forerunner of all their systems and without it, they’ll die (there are several plants that can live without water). You need to water your lawn every day or use sprinklers to do the job for you.
High mowing means that you cut a small portion of the grass. This taller the grasses, the longer the roots will reach the bottom soil that can keep it hydrated even on hot summer days.
Dethatching is the process of removing piled up organic debris between roots and grass blades that may create open spaces for wild weeds to grow. You can use a rake or power dethatching devices to remove such waste. Although this will ruin the look of your lawn, worry less since it will regain its beauty in 2-3 weeks.
Aerating your lawns entails an inspection of the roots. If it doesn’t reach 2 inches below the ground, your lawn needs aerating. Before aeration, you have to water your lawn first and then run a core aerators once over the entire lawn. Then fill some sand or compost on the aerated area of the lawn.
Seeds for open spots
Due to organic debris, you can’t get away with the presence of open spots in your lawn. To aid these, plant in them a similar grass seed so that it can grow and match the entire grassy land. Also, this prevents the weeds to grow and multiply throughout your loan.
As lawn owners, you need to set the level to where you can say it is the appropriately mowed lawn. The standard height for grasses after mowing is 2 to 3 inches from the ground. However, this might depend on the type of grass your lawn has.
Feed your soil with fertilizers
Fertilizers are the best for soils that are not so healthy. With these, healthy grasses can also grow.
Weeds are pimples of the lawn. It is so unsatisfactory to look at a single weed growing in the middle of a beautifully landscaped lawn.
Reseed and Renovate
Try something new, reseed and renovate your lawn to have a much better look.
