The Grass Doesn't Have To Be Greener On The Other Side

The grass is always greener on the other side. You’ve heard that saying, right? It has been around for donkey’s years, yet, many don’t realize that things don’t have to be that way. Your grass could be the greenest around, if only you stopped making excuses and using that outdated saying. Ok, so the saying isn’t meant literally, but still - your grass can look amazing if you start to care for it properly. Pure and simple. You want your lawn to look bright green and healthy without having to purchase the fake stuff? Read on…

Let The Air In
Letting the air in is basically aerating your lawn. Most people haven’t heard of this, which is why their lawns can end up looking dull and lacklustre. Aerate your lawn by punching holes 3 inches deep - you can even use a handheld aerating tool to make things easier. You only need to this once a year, but it can make the world of difference.

Don’t Water As Much
Think that watering your lawn regularly will help it to look greener? Think again. You should water your lawn deeply and less often to get that green, healthy look you’re going for. This will help the roots of the grass grow deeper into the soil. Your sprinkler system a few times a week won’t do anything, so get into the habit of doing this.


Try Natural Lawn Fertilizers
Natural lawn fertilizers are recommended for a reason. They have been proven to be better for your grass and the environment, and work better than synthetic options. Any effective lawn care service will tell you to make use of those natural fertilizers over synthetic. You could even book in a service to get your lawn off to the best start.

Leave Your Grass Clippings Where They Are
This is probably the easiest thing you can do to nourish the soil and make your grass look amazing. Mow the lawn and simply leave your grass clippings where they are. Don’t worry about the way it looks, because soon enough those clippings will have helped your garden to look more lush and full than ever before.

Sharpen The Blades On Your Mower
Keep the blades on your lawn mower sharp to ensure the best results when cutting your grass. Just like cutting hair, this will lead to a better look and encourage more growth in the long run.

Chop To The Recommended Height
Did you know that there’s a recommended height for grass to be? Most people don’t, which is where they go wrong. Cutting too short not only looks terrible, it can hinder how your garden looks in the future. Find out the recommended height for your garden and stick to that to see what kind of results you get.

If you want to make sure your grass is always the greenest, start using these tips ASAP. Spending a little more time now can really help you to achieve a beautiful lush lawn in the long run. Good luck!
