Everyone loves the appearanec of a lush, green lawn. The grass doesn’t have to be greener on the other side if you follow these tips:
Set the Soil
When planting a new lawn, solid preparation and planning are key. Test your soil’s pH levels and be sure to clear any weeds from the area.
Should I seed?
Before you seed your lawn, you should aerate it. You can rent an aerator from a garden supply store and get your lawn en pointe, and ready to maximize the seeds’ rooting potential.
“When I say ‘Mow,’ you say, ‘How high?’.”
When you cut your grass too short, its roots don’t grow as deep, and your lawn isn’t as healthy as it could be. (Taller grass does not mean more mowing, by the way.)
Water your yard.
Seriously. It only needs a good watering once a week, and that will keep your yard lush and healthy.
Fertilize to Maximize Nutrients
Keeping your lawn on a regular fertilizing schedule means that it will reach its fullest and greenest potential.
