How do have a green and lush lawn?
A beautiful green, dense and lush lawn is the ultimate wish of any garden owner. Indeed, the grass enhances the rest of your green space. In addition, it impresses your neighbors and your guests. In this article, I will show you 5 essential steps to follow to have a beautiful lawn throughout the seasons.
- Regular mowing
It is essential to mow your lawn regularly, as this helps to thicken the grass. Regarding the frequency of cutting: it is better to opt for frequent cuts at regular and close intervals. As an indication, mowing a week is a good rhythm to follow.
Change direction and pattern each time you pass the mower, so leaves and twigs aren’t pressed in the same direction every time. The ideal height for each cut is between 4 and 5cm. As a general rule, it is best to shorten the grass stems by about half or two-thirds. During the summer period, it will be better to keep the grass a little higher, because it is more resistant to heatwaves and high temperatures.
- Follow a fertilization program
Lawn mowing exports nutrients from your lawn. Thus, they must be returned to the soil in order to achieve maximum growth and to keep your soil fertility at an optimal level. So, from the beginning of spring, you should fertilize your lawn every 6 to 8 weeks. The fertilization schedule should be balanced to meet the nutrient needs of the lawn.
Nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus are necessary for the optimal growth of your lawn. Similarly, balanced fertilization makes it possible to have a lawn that is resistant to diseases and water stress. In the trade, you find mixtures of special lawn fertilizers. The doses to be used are carefully indicated on the packaging. In soils with a high limestone content, such as the soils of Marrakech, consider applying foliar fertilizers rich in trace elements (iron, zinc, etc.).
