How to Have a Healthy Lawn Naturally

Having a healthy lawn is something challenging, especially when you want to grow it naturally. People always prefer growing natural or organic lawns because they are more resistant to pests and diseases, as compared to chemically treated lawns. The products of these lawns are also healthier in consumption, having no side effects of the pesticides.

You can prepare a natural lawn which will be greener and healthier if you take care of a few simple things. These have been discussed in detail in this article.

Things required:

– Angle Weeders or Dandelion Diggers (mowing tools)
– Mowing Machine
– Cool-season Grass Seeds

Instructions

    You should let your lawn grass grow to at least three inches, because taller grass becomes healthy and the weeds are automatically eliminated. Then mow the grass by leaving at least one inch grass from the bottom.

    Make sure you mow the grass when it becomes fully dry because wet grass can moisten the blades of your mowing machine, affecting the cutting process.

    Always keep the blades of your mowing tool sharp; it will help in mowing the grass in a balanced way.

    Leave the clippings of grass in the lawn as it returns nutrients to the soil which is good for growing healthy grass.

    Water your lawn at least once a week. However, watering twice is better as it will make the grass grow faster.

    If you find weeds in your lawn, try to remove them manually and always avoid using chemicals for that purpose. You can use angle weeder or dandelion digger for plucking weeds from the lawn.

    A thin layer of corn gluten meal can be applied to the grass  to prevent weeds from germinating. This meal will also increase the protein level of the soil, in a natural way.

    Use slow-release organic fertilizer once in a year especially in fall. You should also use small quantity of organic compost which will make the soil more compatible for the nourishment of grass and other plants.
