How to Get Greener Grass for Less:
1. Be mindful of the way you water.
You will want to water your grass at the same time each morning. Did you know that the best time of the day to water your lawn is early in the morning? That way the water will be less likely to evaporate, giving you more bang for your buck.
2. Hail to the humus.
Forget expensive fertilizers and lawn foods. Opt for humus, a mixture of organic matter broken down that is perfect for fighting weeds and disease. Ask your local gardening center about humus, as it is fairly easy to come by.
3. Try this home remedy!
Put a cup of Ammonia into a pail of water (try for a five gallon) and add a cup of epsom salts. Mix well either using a sprayer mist it onto your lawn or simple pour with a watering can. This is comparable to the job a nitrogen based grass fertilizer would do but for a fraction of the cost.
4. Behold mowing magic.
Try to mow your lawn one day after watering it. By doing this, you will help your lawn recoup from the cut. This can prevent that awful browning that happens to grass tips.
5. Let the grass lay.
Although bagging up the grass looks neater, in the summer it is good to let the grass mulching stay on the lawn. It will hold moisture which it will transfer to your yard.
Aerate your lawn at least once in the spring to allow for a greener lawn. This allows air to get into it and work its magic. You don’t need fancy equipment as you can but shoe aerators that you can just wear and walk the yard in.
7. Keep planting those seeds!
Fill in thin spots with inexpensive seed. Thick grass prevents nasty weeds making harder for them to grow.
