How Green is your grass? Tips for a greener lawn

The grass is greener on the other side… or so they say.  Lowes knows how Americans love their gardens and stocks everything you need to make your garden a haven of nature and joy. With a Lowes Money Off Coupon from We Are Coupons you can save money on making your garden amazing.  But, back to that green or greener grass, is greener on the other side?  Yes, it can be, but you can make your own grass greener following these seven simple tips.

Green Grass Tip 1:  The Rule of One Third

Some say this is an old wives tale but they are wrong. By never cutting more one third of your blade height your grass will take less stress and grow greener. This is a really easy rule to follow and always works

Green Grass Tip 2: Long Grass. Deep Roots.

Leaving your grass as long as possible is the key to lush green grass.  Long grass means your grass has long roots and this means the grass can better withstand drought, pests and diseases. 

Green Grass Tip 3:  Sharp Mower Blades

Your lawnmower can make or break your green lawn, or rather your lawnmower blades can make or break your green lawn. Sharp lawnmower blades cut your grass better and your grass knows this. Taking the time and making the effort to sharpen your lawnmower blades as least once a year will help you grow a greener lawn – it will also make mowing your lawn easier.

Green Grass Tip 4: Fertilize

Feeding your lawn is essential. Fertilizer applied properly at the right time in the right quantity can help you produce a greener lawn. Weather patterns can determine your lawn fertilizing schedule and it makes sense to seek advice from your nearest Lowes store on how to best feed your lawn.

Green Grass Tip 5: Deal with the pests

There are many diseases and pests that can wreck your lawn and knowing how to deal with them is essential. A common problem is dry areas or brown circles in a lawn, this could be a brownout or fungal disease and it can be treated if you take care of it early.  Lawn care is so much more than a Saturday morning mow.

Green Grass Tip 6: Deep Watering

Those who know grass will tell you that a good deep watering three times a week is better than a sprinkler twice a day. The greenness of your grass is fully dependent on the roots of the grass and deep watering takes cares of the roots.

Green Grass Tip 7:  Your Irrigation system

Test your irrigation system and ideally have it professionally installed to ensure it delivers enough not too much water. Having a properly installed and adjusted irrigation system is a big help in ensuring the grass is greener on your side of the fence.
