Have you ever set your eyes on a lawn that you immediately fell in love with? Well, you are not the only one, since properly maintained lawns are quite eye catching. However, these lawns do not just appear overnight, they require a lot of effort. Here are a few factors to help you get that perfect lawn.
Mowing the lawn
You should have grass that is free of empty patches; try to cover empty gaps by planting grass to get an even spread. When it comes to the length of the grass, it should not be kept too long or short; there should be enough of it to maintain the process of photosynthesis which in turn keeps everything looking green, healthy, and fresh. The recommended length should be 3 inches or there about.
Water supports the process of growth and in hot weather; grass requires more water due to evaporation. In addition, the type of soil where the grass is grown will also determine how much water will be needed; some soil types tends to absorb and retain more water than others. Don’t water your lawns during the night to minimize the amount of bugs and fungus.
Fertilizers and chemical use
To avail useful nutrients in the soil, you might find it useful to add some fertilizers every once in a while, but if your grass is grown on grass rich soil this is not necessary. In lawns, weeds are usually a nuisance, to keep them out, always use an effective weed killer. You can always consult an expert for the right one to use.
Knowing how to take care of the edges of your lawn will give it a sharp look. Always ensure that the edges are properly trimmed or cut. You can also add to the aesthetic beauty of your lawn by planting flowers at the edge of the lawn, putting up a hedge, or whatever seems suitable to you.
