6 Tips To Grow Greener Grass
Feed the lawn well in autumn, as even after grass growth slows right down the roots are soaking up nutrients and storing energy for the warm months.
Another important consideration is the soil’s pH level, because grass grows best when the soil is neither too acidic nor too alkaline.
Soil pH meters and DIY test kits can be purchased from hardware stores and nurseries, or collect three tablespoon-size samples of soil from different parts of the yard and take them to a garden centre for testing.
A neutral or slightly acidic pH between 6 and 7.2 is ideal.
If the pH is too high, treat the lawn with iron sulphate or sulfur, or apply lime if the pH is very low.
Ask the staff at the garden centre where you buy the lime or sulphate for advice on how much to use.
From there, it’s simply a matter of dispersing the product over your lawn.
