Tips For A Healthy Lawn

Aerate:This means removing plugs of dirt from the lawn so that air, water and nutrients can reach the roots.
Over seed: Keep your lawn thick and healthy by regularly adding grass seed in the early spring and late fall.
Mow smarter: Reduce the growth of weeds by cutting your grass less often. Keeping the lawn between 6 and 8 cm high blocks out the light weeds need to germinate.
Feed it naturally: leave your lawn clippings on the lawn after you mow -they make an ideal (and
free) fertilizer.
Apply natural fertilizer: Don’t over-fertilize and follow label directions carefully To
determine the amount of nutrients needed by your lawn, test the soil.
Water wisely: your lawn needs only 2.5 cm (1 inch) of water a week. Water deeply and infrequently to promote deep roots. Early morning is best when more water will be absorbed than during the heat of day.
Test Your Soil: Problem soil may have a pH imbalance. Ask your garden center where you can purchase a soil test kit to check. Hiring a lawn care service is also an option.
