A lush, green lawn is the dream of every homeowner who wants to live happily and comfortably in their own neighborhood. If you’re wondering what makes the difference between the most beautiful green grass and the least healthy sod you can imagine, the following points and tips on how to make grass green should be observed.
- Before you even seed your lawn it’s essential to work on preparing the soil and making sure that it can sustain healthy grass. To start off, get rid of rotten roots leftover from plants and weeds, test your soil’s pH and adjust it to be as balanced as possible, and then use only organic compounds as fertilizer when you seed your grass.
- Even if you remove dead weeds, that doesn’t mean new ones won’t spring up and steal the vital nutrients and water that your lawn will need. It’s essential to kill those weeds and to also use natural methods to eliminate unwanted insects and pests.
- Aerate and water your lawn. If you want your grass to grow as healthy as possible, you have to make sure that the water and nutrients it gets will be delivered as efficiently as possible. Aeration is essential for that, as is the act of watering your lawn regularly, preferably before the sun is overhead. That way you won’t have to worry about the water evaporating before it reaches the roots.
