This is the first and most important process of all. You should water your grass as soon as you see that the land is dry and it has not water coverage on the surface. Otherwise, the grass is going to start dying and ruin your lawn. You want to water your lawn heavily in the morning. Don’t go lightly on it because the water needs to go down on the ground and really help the roots take place. So water your lawn heavily and in the morning so the water won’t evaporate and also the temperature of the lawn will be kept on low.
Mowing & Edging
One of the first benefits that mowing does to your lawn is that it helps the grass to grow in a better way. During growth grass can grow stronger if it’s leaves are shorter. It will absorb water and nutrition better and the roots will be so much stronger, not having to grow and feed tall grass. But when mowing makes sure to keep within one-third of the length. That’s all you want to take off. In the summer let the length be a little bit higher so it will cool down the earth and keep the lawn healthier.
Being that the grass you are planting is not a native plant for the soil itself, it can be harder for the soil to be able to provide nutritions for it. That is why you help it by fertilizing it with nutritions that will help the grass grow stronger. As you first plant your grass and do the first sessions of fertilization the grass will grow stronger and will ask for more nutrients. You must fertilize your grass at least twice a year so the roots will grow stronger and the grass will be more resistant to weeds, seeds, and diseases.
While you are mowing your lawn all the foot traffic can block it off and not allow the air and organic nutrients. And this can damage the soil and not make it healthy for the grass. So aerating the lawn, while opening these little holes in it can help the nutritions pass through it as well as the air, sun, and the water. This is going to make sure that the soil is strong and that it can provide for your grass.
