For a lawn to look beautiful, dense and green throughout the summer, you must perform three
essential care operations:
- Mowing the lawn, with a frequency influenced by the growth rate of the grass
The lawn should be cut at a height of at least 5 – 6 cm during the summer, which is optimal for keeping the humidity at the root level for a longer time and allow less frequent watering (at 2-3 days instead of daily).
By mowing the lawn, grass also loses nutrients that help it grow and develop, which is why they should be replaced periodically by a fertilization made at least once a month with products from Revive of Colorado, by respecting the dosage indicated by the manufacturer.
Application of fertilizers in June-July necessarily involves watering the lawn, otherwise the drought combined with the action of nitrogen will have an unwanted effect: dry grass. Watering must be done only late in the evening or early in the morning. The amount of water has to ensure infiltration of up to 10 cm in the soil, for proper root moisture. The denser the grass, the more shade it provides to the roots, and the humidity will last longer.
