House & Garden

  • Written by News Company



Everyone loves a beautiful, well maintained lawn. Maybe you have just had brand new turf put down and you want to keep it looking it’s finest and at its healthiest. Perhaps you would just like to maintain or even improve the overall look and quality of your lawn but are not quite sure how to do it. Whatever the reason, the benefits which you will receive in return will greatly outweigh the work which you will need to put into it. Prevention is obviously more efficient than treatment or even replacement but that’s easier said than done. The question is how to do it well but without breaking your back and using up too much time in the process.

Talk to the Professionals

Make the most of the people who are in the know. If at any point you are using the services of professional gardeners or experts in lawn care then pick their brains as much as possible. As long as you are choosing quality services, the best instant turf supplier should be able to provide you with specific information related to your garden such as the soil type, pH level etc. All of this data will prove to be invaluable and you will save yourself a lot of time and energy if you can get this directly from the professionals.

Get Stuck In

Failing that, you are going to have to roll up your sleeves and get in there yourself, take those readings and send them off to a local laboratory for analysis. Having done so, you will then be able to make some alterations to the soil to maximise it.. Maybe you need to add a touch of lime to balance its pH level for example. Perhaps you have some unhealthy patches which never seem to improve because there is something different with the soil in this specific spot. Without having got up close and personal with the soil and taken those readings, you won’t have the relevant information which is crucial to determining any lawn care you undertake.

Know Your Place

Okay great so you have all the technical information you need now right? Not quite. You need to pan out a little and consider certain regional traits. Research what grass types flourish in your surrounding area. Factors beyond soil type such as temperature, seasons, average precipitation etc. all combine to determine exactly which grass you should choose. Having found the correct grass you will find that it needs less watering and general maintenance because it is best suited to your location.

Water Correctly

Speaking of watering your lawn, you need to ensure that you are doing this correctly. It is actually much better to water a garden more heavily but less frequently. By doing so the grass will grow longer roots and this will make it much more durable during times when there is a lack of precipitation and it will generally be much healthier for it. Another benefit from doing this is that you will save money on your water bills by reducing the number of times you are doing it!
