06 Dec Maintaining your soil so that you have a healthy lawn turf
We all want lush green turf that thrives even in the most difficult weather conditions. But do you know how to get that perfect lawn? Simple, by maintaining your soil.
Having a healthy soil is essential for growing a beautiful and robust lawn. Here are some soil maintenance guidelines to keep your lawn in good shape.
Aerate the soil
Aeration is a method that allows your lawn turf’s root systems to breathe and absorb nutrients easily. If your soil is not aerated, it prevents growth and makes your turf prone to pest invasions and diseases. You should aerate your lawn at least once a year.
Keep your soil damp
Dry soil can be damaging to your grass and so it is important to keep it damp. Water your lawn for at least 20 minutes about three times a week.
Fertilising your soil will keep it strong and disease free. However, it is important to fertilise it correctly. Your lawn might have different nutrient requirements and therefore you should take a note of the three numbers on the fertiliser’s label that signify the proportion of each macronutrient before buying it.
Prevent pest invasion
Pest invasion is a common turf problem and if you don’t address it, it might lead to the deterioration of your grass. What you can do is begin a pest management system and seek help from a reliable service provider to help you deal with this issue.
