A Brief Rundown of Services
Why is the grass on your lawn not as green as you have expected it to be? Traffic is one of the usual causes why the grass on your lawn is not greener. If your lawn is surrounded by traffic chances are it will appear dull. People walking around your lawn have a strong tendency to disturb the distribution of air to your lawn. If this is the case, oxygen may not reach the grass, and will suffer. The remedy to this is by aerating your lawn. Try to observe if there are flattened surfaces on your lawn where the ground is more dense and compact. If you see this, then surely your lawn need aeration. It is however important that you do the aeration of your lawn during spring or fall. It is a no-no to do aerating during summer. Sometimes it is because your lawn doesn’t receive the amount of sunlight it needs, because of surrounding trees. If your lawn does not receive enough sunlight, the grass will have a hard time becoming brightly green. Any branch that casts a shadow on the lawn needs to be trimmed so they will no longer block the sunlight. Thatch and small debris can also hinder the grass on your lawn to stay green. It is important to rake the lawn regularly and keep thatch not more than half an inch long. This frees the surrounds of your grass for better aeration. This allows also for nutrients to be distributed to the soil. In order for your lawn to look greenest, it is vital that you do it at the right time. If you aren’t sure how tall the grass should be mowed, just follow this rule of thumb. 1 inch for coarse grass, 1/2 inch for fine grass. Cutting it too short or too long will have bad effects on the grass. You need to water your lawn properly for best and greener results. Best practice is watering the lawn very early in the morning before the sun is up. This is the way to give the soil the most benefit from watering. Make sure the grass is watered evenly on all areas. Having a greener lawn is a good thing to have in summer.
