Having an attractive looking lawn takes some work and attention from the person who resides on the property. There is more than one way to give your lawn what it needs to flourish. I will cover a few things on how to love your lawn for positive results.
Grooming Your Lawn
Have you ever had a dog and made sure it got its coat brushed? Oh, how dogs love getting groomed. It feels good to them once they get used to it.
Well, in a sense your yard is no different. if you keep the pesky weeds out and brush out the things that put a damper on its grassy coat, it to will be happy.
The two things you can do to groom your lawn is to dethatch it and aerate it. This will be just like combing out your lawn and letting it breathe.
The dethatching will be like combing the naps out in a sense. This is no more than removing all the dead & decomposing organic material that has built up on top of your soil. It does provide nutrients to your lawn but an over build up is not good for it.
What it will do is prevent the roots of your grass from getting the proper oxygen and much-needed sunlight thus suffocating your roots.
The other thing you can do to groom your lawn is to aerate it. This is much like opening up the scalp so that the hair grows freely.
Aerating pulls cores of soil out of your soil which opens up your soil to allow for good oxygen & water flow into your soil that will assist in supplying what your roots need efficiently.
If you were to plant on an aerated lawn your roots will be as strong as you can get them which will result in a healthier looking lawn.
Feeding Your Lawn
Just as you love your children and make sure they are fed, you can also treat your lawn the same way to show it, love.
Fertilizing your lawn is making sure your lawn is getting the nutrients it needs in order to grow strong and look lively. Whether you do it organically or chemically, it helps to at least do some fertilizing giving it some assistance.
Fertilizing your lawn will help it get the nitrogen, phosphorus & potassium it needs that the soil may be a little low on.
You should know that loving your lawn is key to it being healthy and your lawn showing beauty. If you don’t have the time to groom it by keeping it cut properly and supplying what it needs, consider letting someone else do it. Either way, it is being loved.
