The Secret To A Healthy Lawn

Not every garden has a lawn, but for every garden that does have one, it needs to be perfect. Taking care of a lawn is actually a little more involved than people tend to think, and for that reason it can be more difficult than you might assume to look after yours in a way which really works. If you want your garden to look great, you are going to need to make sure that the lawn is taken care of and, most of all, that it is as healthy as can be. Keeping your lawn healthy is something that you can easily do if you want to, and all it takes is a particular focus and awareness of what a lawn really needs. Let’s take a look at the secret to a healthy lawn.

Fertilization

Not many people remember to fertilize their lawn, or they might think that it is not something you need to do. But if you want your lawn to be truly healthy, then you are going to need to make sure that you are fertilizing your lawn regularly. Applying just a normal liquid fertilizer every few weeks during the growing months can do wonders to keep it growing healthily, but also to keep it looking as you want it. Good grass fertilizer specifically will help to keep it looking that lovely, rich green colour that is the true mark of healthy grass, so this is something that you are going to want to think about. Fertilization of your lawn really will make an enormous difference in the long run.

Mowing

It’s no surprise that lawn mowing is important for keeping your lawn short, but it is also vital if you want to keep it looking its healthiest too. When you regularly mow your lawn, it means that it is going to be able to keep those nutrients in and use them for what grass is left, which means that it is going to retain its colour and healthy shine much more readily. You will also find that it is just easier to look after a lawn which is kept short, compared to one which is a little more unruly. So that is something that you will really need to think about if you want to make sure that you are keeping your lawn as healthy as possible.



Aeration

If you have never looked into aerating a lawn before, it’s something you will probably want to take on board if you are serious about improving the quality of your lawn. With aeration, you create small holes in the lawn and the soil underneath it, through a process known as coring. Essentially, that’s just pushing small spikes into the grass. This allows oxygen to reach the roots and soil, and means that both fertilizer and water get to the roots much more effectively too. What this all means is much healthier grass in no time at all.
