While you may think that simply getting a nice new home with a green lawn and then keeping it hosed down will be enough to keep it in the same state is enough, you are sorely mistaken. A green lawn requires a bit more garden care than your typical watering and trying not to stomp on it too much and generally ignoring it for the most part. It does take a bit more gardening maintenance, but the effort is still not that much. Here are some tips to help you keep the lawn in a nice, green, and healthy state.
Do proper planting
If you don’t even have a lawn and you are yet to plant it, then at least make sure you have good soil. Contact local gardening services to see what kind of soil you need and what fertilisers to apply to make it suitable for healthy green grass. And then do the planting.
Of course, after installing the lawn, first you really do need to stay of it and water it as much as you can until it sets. Once the grass reaches a few inches of height, you can begin with the grass cutting. Deep watering is essential, but you don’t have to do it too often.
Naturally, this is something you have to get used to. Get a lawn mower and always use the highest setting when taking care of the lawn. Also, make sure that the grass is dry when you are mowing it – wet grass with not be cut, it will be torn.
At least once a year you need to aerate the lawn. Remove small circular patches of lawn from the ground. This lets air flow into the ground, it helps the soil, and removes the risk of some diseases, as well as thatching.
Like any good gardening care, its correct repetition will determine how well you are doing. If you are doing a good job, there should be no irregularities and you will always have a level, evenly green, and healthy grass to complete an excellent lawn. It does not require a lot to be maintained, you simply have to get used to the routine and then practice it as much as you can.
