SECRETS OF THE GREEN GRASS
Dated: June 7 2022
The grass doesn’t have to be greener on the other (neighbour’s) side. With the proper maintenance and care you can have the most glorious green grass you’ve always hoped for. There are several steps to a healthy lawn from watering, cutting, weed control, aerating and fertilizing:
Always ensure your mower blade is sharp enough. A dull blade can tear or rip the grass, rather than cut it, making your lawn more susceptible to disease and turning brown. Also the first few mowings of the season should be done on the mower’s lower (shortest) setting, allowing sun, water and nutrients to get to the base of the grass. You can then raise your mower height every one to two weeks until it’s around two and a half to three inches high.
For a healthier lawn, it’s important to realize that grass should be watered deeply and less often. Watering is one of the most important factors for a beautiful healthy lawn. Water the grass three times a week early in the morning when the sun is starting to rise. Watering in the evening can leave the grass wet overnight which can lead to fungus growth.
Aerating the lawn is another important step. This gives it the best chance to the receive the nutrients and water it needs to grow healthy all season long. Water the lawn one to two days prior to aeration (you can rent an aerator rather than doing it manually). Apply grass seed to bare spots on the lawn and water the seeds to help them take root.
Fertile not Futile
Lastly, don't forget to fertilize! Give it all the nutrients it needs. Once it’s properly aerated and seeded, an application of fertilizer will help feed the grass. With a little extra care, you’ll being enjoying the view of your green grass this summer before you know it!
