- Enjoying your Lawn more often
Step 1: Watering the Lawn Deeply
It is essential to water your lawn deeply and less frequently after three days of mowing the grass. It is important to water the garden lawn early in the morning or late in the evening for better results. If you water during the day in the full sun’s presence, the amount of water that will reach the roots may be too less because it will keep evaporating. But if you are growing grass between the tiles, you will have to water more frequently.
Step 2: Letting the Lawn Grow
It is important to let the lawn grow up to 3 1/2 inches in length. Never remove more than the top one-third of the grass height. During winters, make sure your grass is at least 2 1/2 inches in height after mowing. If your grass is cut too short, it becomes too susceptible to drought and heat damage. It can hamper its growth.
Step 3: Mowing and Trimming
Mow the lawn and also trim the edges. I use a very efficient Black and Decker Lawn Edge Trimmer (Lawn Edge Strimmer). The Lawn Mower I have been using is Black and Decker Electric Lawn Mower.
Step 4: Offering your Lawn a cup of tea
The grass clippings after mowing the lawn are a vibrant source of nitrogen and phosphorus. Fill half the bucket with grass clippings and half the bucket with water. After this, you have to let the mixture rest for three days. The mixture can then be sieved and then sprinkled over the bald or brown patches of the grass. It can also be sprayed on other plants in your garden.
Step 5: Enjoy Your Lawn more often
Do not hesitate to let your child walk and play on the lawn, host outdoor dinners, and barbecues in your garden. You will clean up and maintain in a much better manner if you are hosting someone.
Here’s a Tip: Add grass clippings around your trees before peak winter or peak summer to fertilise and protect from harsh temperatures.
