Thicker, lusher, healthier and more beautiful. If those words describe your lawn goals, success may be closer than you think. Transforming thin, lackluster grass into a thicker, healthier lawn isn’t difficult to achieve. Use these healthy grass tips to achieve that goal.
Aeration and Overseeding
Once a year in the fall or spring, you should aerate your lawn and overseed. This help new grass grow and for established roots to breathe.
Choose the Right Grass
Success hinges on selecting the best grass seed for your situation. Turfgrass breeders make advances every year, so it’s worthwhile to do some research to discover available options. Local grass seed vendors typically carry tried-and-true seed types. You can find newer seed types at a nursery or landscaping business that specializes in lawn installation. Always buy top-quality seed. It’s worth the investment.
Water Grass Correctly
When watering an established lawn, it’s typically recommended to water until the top 6 to 8 inches of soil (where most turfgrass roots grow) is wet. Most lawns need 1 to 1.5 inches of water per week—either from rain or watering—to soak the soil that deeply.
Fertilize Your Grass
A high-quality fertilizer will give your lawn the greener appearance you desire. Generally, one with nitrogen is the best choice. Use a professional to apply it.
Pay Attention to Your Soil
In order to keep your lawn healthy and green while enjoying it to the fullest, you have to pay attention to what’s going on just underneath the surface. Soil nutrition for turf grass is all about applying the right nutrient at the right time—in the right amount—and is one of the main tenets of turf grass management. A soil PH reading of 7.0 which is neutral is ideal. Lime application can improve growing condition if your soil isn’t the right pH.
