The lawn is a living being and as such, it needs proper care and maintenance that, carried out correctly, will allow us to have a lawn in perfect condition.

Below we share the most important aspects that you must take into account for the proper Trop Lawn Care.

Irrigation

If you want your lawn to be green and shiny, you must water it. The watering frequency for your lawn depends on the temperature and humidity. When the grass needs water, it begins to turn bluish and grayish, and the older leaves of the plant begin to curl or wilt. If you planted a new lawn, you will need to water it once a day so that the seeds can germinate and a resilient root system can form.

In rainy climates, it is necessary to water less than in dry ones. Irrigation should be regular and abundant in the hot season rather than in the cold.

The best time to water is in the early morning, at sunset, or night.

New technologies allow you to water your lawn comfortably. You can water your garden manually or automatically, with partial or total automation. You can even let the smart, programmable, automated sprinkler and irrigation systems do all the work. All you have to do is a program and set up the sprinklers.

cut

It is one of the essential tasks in lawn care, along with irrigation and fertilization, but without the need to do complex calculations to know when and how to do it like the others. This does not mean that it is a less important task, the appropriate cut and the frequency are basic aspects.

With cold (Winter) or very hot (Summer), the grass is usually left a little higher than normal so that it can better resist these climatic adversities and develop strong roots.

Fertilization

The third aspect to maintain a healthy, long-lasting, green and shiny lawn. It recovers it from the stress of mowing and the depletion of nutrients caused by the continuous regrowth. Increase the fertility of the land, etc. Since the beginning of spring, it is advisable to fertilize the lawn every four to five weeks. Your lawn needs nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorous. The fertilizer containers indicate the amount to be used.

Weed control

With persistence and the right tools, you can win the battle against your lawn weeds. Many of the weeds can be removed by mechanical means. Smaller weeds (such as veronica or white clover) can be removed with a hand trimmer, which is used to prevent and hinder their growth.

Daisies and dandelions should be removed with a root starter and it is very important to remove the maximum length of the root to prevent them from growing back.

If there is still no way to make them go away, you can turn to herbicides. If the bad roots have outgrown the grass, the best solution is to restructure the entire soil and cover it with roll grass.

Other occasional care

The grassroots need air to breathe and grow. Often the grass soil is not so sandy as to allow air to reach the roots and consequently, growth does not develop. With the help of a simple rake, you can make holes in the lawn and fill them with coarse sand. In this way, the surface water will be able to flow and transport oxygen to the roots. Scarifying allows you to remove dead weeds and other debris from your lawn. If you remove the layer of straw from your lawn, you will provide more space so that the lower parts of the grass can breathe and make the stems grow better.

It's time to go to your nearest The Home Depot to see the wide variety of items that will help you have a spectacular lawn.
