Lawn, as the most basic greening measure, is not only used in urban landscaping but also various sports events, such as football fields and golf courses. A good lawn can help maintain micro-ecological balance, support athletes’ specialties.
What is a Good Status of a Lawn?
1. Healthy drainage structure
A healthy drainage structure is suitable for root development, the air, water, heat can be a good cycle. It also protects soil from too much moisture, which can lead to soil salinization and flora imbalance.
2. Excellent anti- trampling ability
If a lawn is used for sports, it must have an excellent anti-trampling ability. This requires the grass has a strong fiber structure; the soil should also withstand pressure and Not easy to slip.
3. Healthy soil granular structure
Soil granular is vital for the grass growth, including root, stem, and leaf, supply enough air, water and nutrients, maintain balanced microbes living conditions.
4. Long term growth & restoration
Under seasons change, climate change, and manual pruning, the turf should have long term growth & restoration ability to keep itself green and reduce planting and time costs.
5. Fewer pathogens in the soil
Soil pathogens will harm the whole grass plant; some of them have strongly contagious. It will often cause a large area of yellow lawn, causing losses in view and business value.
To get a good lawn landscape, Applying lawn fertilizer and making a lawn fertilizer schedule is necessary, some lawn fertilizer companies have their unique lawn fertilizer service, if you have an own lawn, you can take these suggestions of lawn care as a reference：
5 Tips for Lawn Care
Water is generally replenished when the lawn needs a lot of water, avoid frequent watering. If the watering dosage is small, the water will only stay on the surface of the grass and will not penetrate the soil. When it is observed that the lawn becomes very dry, a lot of watering is required. The watering time should be paid attention to in the early morning or evening so that it will not cause a large amount of evaporation and damage to the grass.
The long-term growth of the grass will affect the beauty of the lawn, so regular mowing is necessary. The growth of the stems and roots of the grass will achieve a certain balance. When the leaves of the grass are cut off, the roots will absorb water and nutrients to maintain the growth of the above-ground part, thus forming a green and thick lawn. Mowing the lawn should be in the vigorous season, and the length of the mowing should not exceed one-third to prevent the grass from losing photosynthesis.
Long-term rain washing and pruning will cause a severe loss of nutrients in the soil. Adding some nutrients and organic matter to the soil regularly can make the grass grow quickly. At the same time, it will help maintain a better soil aggregate structure.
Autumn lawn fertilizers are generally organic or slow-release fertilizers, which can help the lawn to survive the autumn and winter seasons, and also strengthen the root structure of the grass. The root growth helps it cope with drought and cold. The summer lawn fertilizer should reduce the supplement of nitrogen fertilizer and add potassium fertilizer to prevent the lawn from growing excessively.
When applying the lawn fertilizer?
Lawn fertilization time: In colder areas, fertilize the lawn twice a year, once in early spring and once in early autumn, so that lawn grass can start to grow in advance. First, fertilization can not only advance the green period but also help the cold season lawn to recover as soon as possible. At the same time, it can form a dense turf before the annual weeds get the appropriate germination temperature.
Fertilizing in autumn can not only extend the green period to the end of autumn or early winter but also stimulate the two-year tillering of turf grass and the production of underground rhizomes. This kind of fertilization measures can create the best living conditions for good lawns but is not suitable for early summer weeds.
Weeds will occupy the living space of lawn grass by plundering soil and nutrients, so weeds need to be removed as soon as possible with a weeder.
5. Diseases and pests
Under adverse weather conditions and other reasons, lawns often get sick. The pathogens that cause the diseases are usually fungal and bacterial. At this time, fungicides are needed to remedy them in time to avoid infection. You can also use environmentally friendly microbial fertilizer products such as Trichoderma and Bacillus subtilis at the beginning to balance the soil flora, inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, and reduce subsequent costs.
The prevention and control of pests require careful screening. The organisms on the lawn can help establish a good micro ecological cycle. Then harmful insects sometimes destroy the grass and multiply without restriction, causing a vicious cycle. At this time, pesticides or Microbial insecticides Bacillus thuringiensis and Beauveriabassiana. The former is effective quickly, while the latter continues to be effective.
In this project, all aspects of lawn growth will be involved. In standard management, we should follow the natural growth law of grass and improve the soil, pay attention to the prevention of diseases and pests, to maintain and increase the value of the lawn and generate its economic benefit.
