Why is the grass on your lawn not as green as you have expected it to be? One reason why is because of traffic. Traffic is one major factor affecting the color and appearance of your lawn. Check and see if there are people always moving around in your lawn, because they are actually disturbing the aeration of your lawn. This results in a significant loss of oxygen flowing to the grass. How to solve this is by aerating your lawn. Try to observe if there are flattened surfaces on your lawn where the ground is more dense and compact. This makes aeration of your lawn a priority. Best results in aerating your lawn is achieved during springtime or fall. It is a no-no to do aerating during summer. The lack of sunlight reaching the grass caused by tree shadows may be another reason why your lawn is not greener. It will be difficult for your lawn to produce green grass if the sunlight does not reach it. You can allow more sunlight to reach your lawn by cutting off the branches that cast shadows on it. Keep your lawn as green as possible also by taking care that there is no build-up of thatch and debris on it. Thatch must be kept to less than half an inch long. What raking does is give freer aeration for your grass. This allows also for nutrients to be distributed to the soil. In order for your lawn to look greenest, it is vital that you do it at the right time. If you aren’t sure how tall the grass should be mowed, just follow this rule of thumb. Coarse grass, 1-inch; fine grass 1/2 inch. Cut the grass at just the right length for your lawn to maintain its greener look. Water is probably the most important ingredient in making your lawn look great. Best practice is watering the lawn very early in the morning before the sun is up. This ensures that the water will be absorbed by the soil instead of be evaporated by the heat of the sun. Instead of watering the lawn in sections, it is best to make sure by doing it evenly in all areas. Lawn care will definitely reward you with a greener and better looking yard.
