One of the main goals of people who own a home and a green yard is to have a lush green lawn, from spring to late autumn.
Here are 5 quick tips for a greener lawn this summer, like in magazines:
- Mowing the lawn correctly
One of the most important operations is cutting the grass. The lawn must be mowed once a week to get thicker, but also to prevent weeds from growing. It is also very important to alternate the cutting direction so that the grass blades are not pressed in the same direction.
A healthy, therefore green, lawn needs proper natural fertilizer nutrition, especially since it is constantly mowed and watered frequently. So, the lawn should be fertilized once every 4-6 weeks, from spring to autumn.
The lawn needs a lot of water, so you will need to irrigate it at least once a day, or even twice (in the morning and late in the evening), if you installed an automatic irrigation system.
- Aeration and scarification
A green lawn needs to breathe, and aeration and scarification are two operations that help it in this regard.
- Removing weeds
In a green lawn, there is no place for intruders, i.e. weeds, because they consume the water and nutrients, weakening the grass. Weeds can be removed manually or with selective herbicides.
