The lawn will be green again: 8 tips to revitalize dead grass
In the fall, you need to put more effort into preparing your lawn for the cold season and keeping it brightly colored. Temperature changes and improper care can significantly affect the condition of the grass, so now is the time to save it.
OBOZ.UA has collected tips that will help you cope with this. No need to spend money on expensive chemicals, just follow these steps.
First, you need to clear the lawn of fallen leaves, twigs, and weeds. This prevents air and moisture from penetrating the soil, which negatively affects the growth and development of plants.
Use garden tools to weed the area. This will allow air to penetrate the dense soil and the grass will get all the nutrients it needs to grow faster.
Weeds sprout quickly in any area and are difficult to get rid of. They harm the plant and absorb all the nutrients. Remove unwanted seedlings by the root.
Lawns need regular fertilization with nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. This promotes the development and growth of the grass. Choose fertilizers that are suitable for your soil type.
If the lawn looks bad and can't be saved, it's best to buy quality seeds and re-sow them in the same area. Spread it evenly on the ground and cover it with a thin layer of soil.
Type of grass
If your lawn turns yellow and dry every season, you should change the type of grass. Different varieties have their own advantages and disadvantages, and you should choose the right one based on the conditions in which it will grow.
A dry lawn is a sign of dehydration, so you need to water it immediately. The best time to do this is in the morning or evening when the temperature is already cooler.
Do not mow the lawn
If your lawn looks dry, then stop mowing it because you will damage the grass even more. Longer leaves create shade for the soil surface, which helps to retain moisture better. In addition, longer grass promotes better photosynthesis.
