A lush green lawn as essential as a freshly painted interior (something real estate agents also frequently recommend). But before undertaking the work of restoring your lawn, you want it to fit in with the neighborhood and make that all important statement.

 

In many established neighborhoods with old homes and mature trees, the lawn is a component, but not a major one, in the landscape. In newer developments, however, lawns tend to play a starring role and therefore require more attention.

 

Renovation of Lawns

 

Lawn renovation involves restoring a deteriorated turf grass area to an improved condition. Depending on the condition of the turf, this process can be accomplished without establishing a new lawn.

 

The first step in lawn renovation is to correct the primary cause of turf deterioration. Such things as drought, excessive shade, tree root competition, poor drainage, soil compaction, inadequate fertility, acid soils, weed or insect infestation, disease, thatch build-up, improper mowing, poorly-adapted grass species and cultivars, and others may contribute to poor turf.

 

Shade problems may require removal of some trees, pruning, and planting turf grass species that are adapted to shaded conditions. Tree roots may need to be pruned to reduce competition with grasses for water, air, and nutrients.

To get the strongest lawn possible, get it mowed as often as needed to keep it at around 3 inches in height. When your grass is cut, the healthiest grass shoots will flourish while the weak shoots are left behind. The more you get your lawn cut, the more healthy grass shoots you will have which results in a more lush and healthy lawn over time.

 

Mulching is a vital part of a healthy lawn because it returns much needed nutrients to your lawn after mowing. When mowing is done consistently, mulching can be done with shorter blades of grass. Returning shorter blades of grass to your lawn is much healthier than waiting until the grass is longer because the longer blades are weaker and less nutrient-rich.
