Seven mistakes that kill your lawn
Private homeowners often sow a lawn in the yard to beautify their property. However, summer heat and improper care can spoil the neat appearance of the grass.
It is important to know not only how to water, mow and weed the lawn in time but also how to do it properly, OBOZREVATEL has collected tips that will help to cope with this.
The owners often make mistakes in the care of the lawn and this leads to wilting grass.
Poor soil quality
A poorly chosen lawn area can cause moss and weeds to thrive rather than the lawn to grow. You need to fertilize the soil every spring. Compost or manure can be used.
Overwatering your lawn can create a favorable environment for moss. Water your grass depending on the weather conditions.
Lack of oxygen in the soil
Compacted soil can prevent proper absorption of water and nutrients due to a lack of air between soil particles. To avoid this, "aerate" the soil regularly. Use a sharp object, such as a pitchfork, to make small holes in the soil so that oxygen can enter.
Mowing the grass too short can weaken it and make room for weeds and moss to grow. No more than one-third of the grass should be removed at a time.
Irregular grass mowing
Homeowners who mow their lawns every two to three weeks are likely cutting a lot of grass. This can lead to stunted growth and weeds. It is recommended that you mow your lawn once a week.
Failure to fertilize and remove weeds from your lawn will lead to pests, diseases and wilting grass. Remember to weed your lawn promptly to promote healthy growth.
Overuse of chemicals can harm the grass and create a favorable environment for weeds. Use such products only when necessary and read the instructions on the label.
