A lawn with a dense grass cloth decorates the plot and serves as a background for other landscape design objects. In order for it to please the eye with a well-groomed and fresh appearance for a long time, it is important to fertilize and water it in a timely manner, remove weeds and perform other operations.
To keep your time and money, you can turn to the services of residential lawn maintenance professionals.
Lawns can be different — decorative, used to move on them or to arrange a recreation area. But the rules of care are the same for everyone:
- Proper watering should be regular. The best time of day for this is in the evening or early morning. It is not recommended to use water with a temperature below + 10 degrees, since the cold is detrimental to the grass roots. Water should be poured under medium pressure under the roots. It is convenient to use sprinklers for this.
- The frequency of cutting depends on the speed of grass growth. When it rises to about 10 cm, it needs to be shortened by a third. Various types of tools are produced, which are used for haircuts.
- Soil aeration is performed by a mechanical device – aerator. Also, special rakes are suitable for this, which pierce the ground.
- Fertilizers are needed for the normal development of plants. It is enough to make them 2 times a year. Better care includes additional operations that are performed at different times of the year.
