How to Grow a Healthy and Nice Looking Lawn

It’s nice to have a nice and healthy lawn in front of the house, all green and beautiful. But sometimes something happens and your lawn grass turns brown and yellow and it either fades away or get dried and finally looks like a desert garden. Of course that is extremely annoying as all people would like to have a nice lawn, but there are a few things you should know if you want to have this kind of everlasting lawn. Here are a few of these tips and tricks:

– First make sure you water it properly, at least once a week, especially in the morning. I suggest this time of the day because the temperature is lower in the morning, so evaporation is not very high so the water is absorbed in a larger quantity than at noon when it will evaporate a great deal faster.

– Another pretty important thing to do is to water the lawn heavily once a week better than 5 minutes every day because this way the water stays only in the surface. If you allow water to go deep, it will make the soli soft and humid and this will develop the grass roots and the grass will last longer.

– Try to leave the grass a bit longer, so mow it at the higher level. This way the shadow will be bigger and the soil will be kept more moist and the roots of the grass will get stronger, too. Besides, if you mow your lawn regularly the weeds will be unable to grow.

– Make sure you choose the right fertilizer for your lawn. The best solution will be the natural fertilizers but if you do not have access to them, make sure the fertilizer contains nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium, too.
