HAVE A HEALTHY LAWN THE NATURAL WAY WITH AAG LAWNMAN

Improve Your Soil

Soil ph is the starting point in evaluating your soil. Ph is the measure of soil acidity. If the ph is not in the optimum range, then nutrients will not be available to the grass plants. By not having the proper ph, fertilizer is wasted. Also certain weeds are affected by soil ph. A soil sample should be taken twice per year to monitor ph.

Nutrient Levels should be monitored so that proper fertilizer can be applied.

Soil Compaction is relieved by aerating the soil at least once per year. Aeration should be done in the late summer along with seeding with proper varieties for the best long-term results. Aeration can also help reduce certain weed populations if timed properly. Aeration allows oxygen to get down to the roots that is beneficial for root development.

Organic Matter in the soil aid in the overall health of the soil, by providing a healthy medium for microbial organisms and beneficial bacteria to live and multiply. This soil microbial action helps the uptake of nutrients, insect control, and disease control. The soil should be innoculated with beneficial organisms periodically, so that the soil will begin to produce them on their own. This will create a better environment for things like earthworms as well, that are essential for the soil health.

Grass Type- The best way to get off to good start with a healthy lawn is to plant the best grass seed possible for your area. There are grass varieties that are insect, disease and drought resistant that are developed for our area. Seed that is purchased in home and garden centers are not suitable for our area and can cause problems in the future.

Watering should be supplemented when needed. Lawns generally need about 1” of water per week. There are many factors to consider when watering, such as; soil type, slope, and sun exposure. Use a few basic rules when watering for best results. Water in the early morning hours (12-5am). Observe how fast the water soaks into the ground. Water only to the point that water starts to run off. With clay soils it may be better to water twice with less time instead of one long watering. Use something to measure precipitation. There are several simple devices available
