Ways to Make Grass Green

make grass greenEveryone would love to have a beautiful, healthy green lawn, but not everyone knows how to make grass green. Many people think that all they should have to do to achieve green grass is mow it and fertilize it now and then. They are partially right. Some people still believe that if they cut their grass as short as they can it will save them time spent cutting it later.

The truth is that if you cut your grass extremely short you are creating problems for your lawn. Extremely short grass allows weed seeds to germinate and grow. Weeds generally grow faster than surrounding grass so they tend to spread and kill off the grass around them. Extremely short grass spends all its time and energy growing new blades and therefore has very shallow root systems. This means that in times when there are shortages of water the grass turns brown and dies quickly because the roots do not go deep enough to reach stored water.

Experts will tell you that a good length for grass is around 3 inches tall. You should never cut more than 1/3 of the length of the grass off at any one time. Keeping your grass at about 3 inches tall prevents weed seeds from receiving the sunlight they need to grow. So just by leaving your grass a little longer you are helping to prevent weeds from taking over your lawn. Leaving grass longer also allows the grass to spread its roots deeper into the soil. This means that even if it doesn’t rain for a few days your grass will still be able to find moisture to keep it healthy.

Free seasonal remindersIf you fertilize your lawn to make grass green you should do it in the fall. This allows the fertilizer to break down and gives the grass roots time to absorb it. Fertilizing in the spring will encourage grass to grow too quickly. You may want to consider using a product like Soil Booster Blend because it not only adds the fertilizer you need but contains the microbial agents that your soil needs without chemicals. You get three jobs done at once with this you get fertilizer and plant food as well as replenishing microbial agents that can be depleted from your soil.

If your lawn is plagued with weeds you may also want to add a pre-emergent weed killer like Pre-Emergent Weed Control and Lawn Fertilizer. This is an all natural weed killer that stops weeds before they begin to take over your lawn. Allowing your grass to grow lush and make grass green and healthy, is not as difficult as some people think it is. Fertilize it in the fall with a fertilizer that also contains plant food, keep it at approximately 3 inches long, and reduce the weed population and you should be able to enjoy a beautiful green lawn all summer long. You can be the envy of your neighborhood with these easy steps to make grass green.
