There is a saying, “the grass is always greener.” Is this true? Yes, in most circumstances. But it’s not as hard as it sounds if you want to have a green grass in the yard or garden. Just note the following points that I cite here today.
It feels so good when we arrive in an area with good green grass. Even you are a guest, you are still eager to lie down or roll over like a kid, or at least step on it without shoes.
Green grass depends on several factors:
- The type of grass you have chosen
- The place where they will be planted
- And if there is a lot of movements on the grass
If you live in a region that is very hot, you should look for a type of grass that is specific to that type of weather, and you also need to check if this kind of grass can stay in the shade or in the sun all day, or if it will vary with the course of the day.
Some soils are not very suitable for every type of plantation, but it doesn’t mean that you should give up. You can add additives, fertilizers and nutrients that you find at specialty stores to the soil.
The seed of green grass needs to be watered daily, and you’d better water it at the same time, especially in the morning. Early in the morning, the wind is weaker and it will not drain the water before they arrives on earth; besides the sunlight is less intense, so it will not evaporate the water quickly. You need to make the soil moist, but not wet.
You can water the lawn green with the mixture of water and fertilizers which consist of ammonia, magnesium and sulfate. The ratio is a glass of each to a bucket of water.
The dried leaves have to be removed, and this must be done before they “contaminate” the rest of the leaf, so you should prune it more or less 24 hours after watering. The grass which is more below will be more green because they’ve absorbed the water received the day before, and they are also the most exposed suffered from the weather.
The aeragem is ideal to be made twice a year, the process of “drilling holes” on earth results that water and nutrients enter the root.
If the “carpet” of green grass is not well kept, you need to do a survey for weeds; you can plant more seeds of green grass in the spaces where has enough sunlight.
When the area is all closed, the sun does not reach the ground when the weeds are not created.
If you have done all these procedures, but your lawn still doesn’t get or can’t stay green, maybe it because your region is not very conducive to this type of plant. So you need to seek professional help from agronomists or technicians in agronomy who will evaluate your soil and prescribe the best products to you and guide you how to use them.
