A lot of times when you see the browning of your yard, it is because you might have caught some mold and it is making your lawn look unattractive. I’m sure if you haven’t had it to you probably know somebody who has had a brown fungus yard. Sometimes your yard might have ended the season looking good but that next season you are wondering what happened to my beautiful lawn?
No need to panic. Because you can wake up your browning yard.
The only thing you have to be ready for is a little bit of work. But I’m sure it’s worth it if you cherish your lawn. Below I am going to give you something that will help you followed by a video to make it easy to see that all hope is not lost.
What you want to do is remove all the dead grass out of your lawn. You take an iron rake and pull it up from around the good grass.
Once you pulled all of it out, you want to add some starter fertilizer to the lawn. When you buy your fertilizer you want to get one with a large amount of phosphorous.
What that will do is give your seeds help in producing good root growth.
Note: When getting your fertilizer it would be wise to consult with your local Home & Garden store to assist you in which type you should purchase.
Spread your fertilizer out over the lawn. You want to be careful not to over-fertilize because it will burn the grass. Using a spreader is the best way.
Once this is done, you can add some grass seed to the lawn. Now you have to determine what blend is best depending on where you are and the area you are planting in. Don,t be shy while spreading it.
Germination of the seeds is important so that you will have good grass coverage.
Now it is time to spread the seeds around through the lawn. You can do this by using the back of a rake. Mix it in really well into the soil.
To help protect your seeds we will add some compost on top of it about a 1/4 inch of coverage. This will help keep it from washing away in rainfall if you should have some and at the same time help the seeds to stay moist.
The other way it protects it is from the sun. If it is exposed to the sun, your seeds will dry out and will be a major reason why it doesn’t germinate.
Next, we water it lightly. Too much water can make the seeds run with the water and we don’t want that to happen. All you are trying to do is keep it moist as much as you can with about a 1/4 inch of water.
Just treat your newly planted lawn watered regularly and in just a little time you will have a nice looking healthy lawn.
When getting your fertilizer it would be wise to consult with your local Home & Garden store to assist you in which type you should purchase.
I hope this post gave you some valuable information especially if you are experiencing this problem with your lawn. There is no need to panic.
