How You Can Restore Your Bad Lawn
If your garden has been giving you trouble the best way to deal with it is by tilling it or renovating it. But if you decide to rebuild it make sure that you avoid the mistakes that you had made before. If in your yard you have water that is stagnant because of the rain then you want to consider either draining it or laying a layer of gravel under the topsoil. If the problem that you are facing is because of hard baked ground, and the grass is not healthy then the best approach will be to tilling. When you are done farming you can then make the soil and plant the seedlings. When you develop and aerate the ground you will be able to get rid of places that are compacted in your lawn.
The aerating of the soil can be done automatically with a machine that you operate like a lawn mower. The aerating tool can be obtained from stores where they rent them, or you can hire small companies that have the machine, and they can come and do it for you. If you prefer working on your lawn then you can use a spading fork, and all you have to do is pull the soil back and forth so that you can enlarge the openings of the ground. After the aerating is done put some sand or compost into the holes so that you can get better movement of the air and moisture in the soil.
If the soil in your lawn is not right then your garden will not look healthy, but you can change that by adding compost. The fertilizer should be added to the soil in the days when the weather is not too hot or too cold so that the grass can be able to use. Put the compost in the ground following the instruction and you can either use your hands or a spreader. The best way to put the fertilizer in the soil is by walking from one direction as to the other and then walk back to where you came from. When you do this it will ensure that the compost is applied evenly throughout the lawn. Add new grass and fertilizer to a lawn that has grass that dos do not look healthy.
If your yard is not leveled make sure that remove all the bumps. If your yard has moss it is because the drainage is not right and it’s not because of acidity in the ground like most people believe. When you turn and grade your garden and improving the drainage you will be able to get rid of the moss. By keeping your garden well, you will have an attractive landscape in your home.
