5 Simple Steps to Keep Grass Green

What can you do to ensure that your lawn remains green through the spring and summer and into the fall? RDK LANDSCAPING’s lawn care specialists give some advice to assist you!

Here are five simple ways to maintain a green lawn.

1. Decide which type of grass will grow best in your yard

As you may or may not be aware, numerous grass varieties exist. The conditions in which each array thrives best are varied. Some plants thrive in chilly climates, while others need more sunlight. So selecting the proper type of sod is the first step in setting yourself up for success. To find out which cultivars are most suitable for your location, use our Lawn Selector Tool and respond to a few simple questions. You can then view more thorough information about each of the grasses to assist you in making a decision. 

2. Check the soil

Apply a soil testing kit. Test the pH and nitrate/phosphorus levels in your soil. This can assist in identifying any shortcomings that prohibit you from having a healthy, green lawn. You can supplement your soil with particular items if it is deficient in essential nutrients.

This will produce the best conditions for healthy grass. There are non-chemical alternatives to maintain your lawn if you don’t want to use chemicals. For instance, mulching or leaving grass clippings on your lawn keeps your soil moist and discourages weed growth. Visit our article on lawn care nutrition for additional details.

3. Water your plants thoroughly but only a little

Overwatering the grass is one of the most common mistakes made by homeowners. You will need to water frequently when beginning a grass from seed since the seeds need time to germinate and sprout. But be careful not to overwater if you’re starting your grass from sod. Most homeowners virtually or daily water their lawns gently. As a result, your grass is more susceptible to heat and drought since the roots are encouraged to remain close to the earth. You should water deeply only a few times per week, less often. This process will promote extensive root growth.

And lastly, try to water in the morning rather than at night. You can prevent disease-causing prolonged wetness by using this strategy. Visit our Lawn Care Irrigation page for additional details.

 4. Avoid cutting the grass too short

Long-term work and upkeep are increased when you mow your grass very short since you need to water more frequently and use more pesticides. A day after watering, mow your lawn to help it recover more quickly from the previous cut. This often stops the tips from turning brown and yellow.

5. Aerate your lawn once each in the spring and the fall

Your lawn’s surface will be aerated, which is done by making little holes in it. An aeration rake might be utilized for this. Even sandals that you can strap onto your feet for aeration are available from some businesses. By doing this, the roots may access air, water, and nutrients.

As a result of improved drainage, runoff is also decreased. Your lawn might have a disease or pest infection if you’ve tried all these suggestions but need to see the intended results. The best course of action is to bring a sample of your grass and soil to a professional to help pinpoint the problem’s origin because it is crucial to identify the issue precisely.
