Injecting Life Into Your Garden

Injecting Life Into Your Garden

If you have a garden or lawn that has not been looking the best, then the best time to start working on it is now. A lot of us currently are homebound and don’t have a lot to do, so this is a great time to bust out the tools and get busy. Now, if are looking to inject more green into your lawn, you want to start by improving the grass that is growing there. You can do that with good fertilizer, but if it still seems lackluster or if you are noticing bald spots on your lawn, then you should consider seeding your lawn. You can either hire someone to do it or you can do it yourself since the process is not as complicated.

Seeding, as the name suggests, involves planting grass seedlings over your lawn/desired area. Fertilizer will then be added, and you have to be sure to water accordingly. Seeding is also something that cannot be done haphazardly. There is a specific time and season to do it since seeds are sensitive to the weather. You might also need to do things like putting on a light tarp over the area to protect them from the heat or too much sunlight. There are step-by-step guides available online that go into great detail about the process of adding seeds to your lawn.

Overseeding is also a common practice where seeds are added to an already existing lawn just to make it appear greener, fuller, and brighter. This is done after every 2-3 years depending on the condition of your lawn. If you are struggling to figure out what your lawn might be needed, you can call in a landscaping professional or a gardener to come in, look at everything and then suggest what might be the best course of action for you.
