Steps to get your lawn to grow nice and how to make grass green as possible. However, you will have to commit some time and energy towards getting it done. The following tasks will help you on your way to achieving a near perfect lawn, so make sure you follow these tips and also consult a professional gardener about how to apply them to your own soil and the type of grass you want to grow:
- Check your soil’s pH and adjust it if necessary. A balanced pH will allow your lawn to grow more easily and prevent any challenges that you’d normally encounter.
- Get additional porous soil to complement the existing clay-like soil in your garden and in the area where you plan to seed your lawn. If your soil has too much clay, it will retain an excess of water and prevent your seeds from growing properly.
- Aerate your soil after seeding and then fertilize your seeds using slow-release fertilizer. That way the fertilizer and the water will find its way to the seeds more easily, so they will get the maximum amount of nutrients and water that they might need.
- Water your lawn about once or twice a week on average. If it gets warmer, then you can do it more often or add a little more than just one or two inches of water, just make sure you don’t overdo it.
