The Green Grass

Many of you who have a lawn to maintain, want to have that bright green grass that you often come across. And although some might think that growing grass can’t be that hard, it’s harder than you think to achieve the bright green grass many people want. If you want some tips and tricks to try out, keep on reading. There will be about 3 hopefully helpful things in here that you can try!

Prepare

If you want to have healthy grass that has the right amount of nutrients, you’ll have to use something like fertiliser. Before you use this it’s best to prepare the grass for fertilisation. By doing this the fertiliser is able to get into the ground further and give off the nutrients that the grass needs to be healthy, to keep growing, and to have it’s gorgeous, bright green colour. Scarification is what you do to prepare the grass. Scarifying is making sure the surface of the grass that you’re going to fertilise is clean and well taken care of. Once you’ve done the scarifying, you can start the fertilisation process.

Fertilisation

Once you’ve scarified the grass properly, you’re ready to start the fertilisation. You do this with fertiliser. There are a couple different sorts of fertiliser you can use. You’ve got an iron sulphate which is a kind of aggressive form of fertiliser. The same goes for an iron fertiliser, it’s a bit more of a harsh form of fertilising your lawn so you’ll have to be patient and wait a few days before continuing to work on the lawn. And then you also have regular fertiliser, this is a regular and mild product. When you use the regular fertiliser, you can just continue the rest of the work you have to do. So with that one you don’t have to be as patient as with the iron sulphate and iron fertiliser.

Afterwards

If you’ve done both of the things stated above, you’re ready to add lawn grass seeds. As said before, if you use an iron sulphate or iron fertiliser, you have to wait a couple of days before starting with adding the seeds. If you’ve used a regular fertiliser, you can add the seeds right away. Once you’ve done that you just have to make sure the lawn gets enough sun and water. Not too much sun because then it will dry out, and not too much water either because then the grass will drown in it. Keep an eye on it and you’ll have your green green grass.
