When you want to turn that bare patch of ground into a nice lush lawn, you need to be prepared to do the following:
Address any problems that your lawn or soil may presently have, and understand why your last lawn didn’t thrive. This may mean that you have to do a pH test on your soil to determine if your soil is lacking any necessary nutrients or has unbalanced levels that could be impacting upon grass growth. Once these issues are rectified, you can then go on to check the drainage and the shade in the area.
When choosing a new lawn, it is best to choose grass that suits your environment. For more information on grass types click here. This will give the lawn a better chance at embedding itself and building strong root systems.
Before getting started with laying your new lawn, you will need to ensure that all of the old grass and weeds are removed from the soil before you lay the new turf. Otherwise grass and weeds will start growing up from underneath the new lawn and will starve the new shoots and hamper root growth. Aerate the ground to loosen up the compacted soil and then level out the soil to spread it evenly and sloping in the desired direction.
Lay out the turf in a staggered pattern (similar to brickwork) as this will prevent drying out and soil erosion when it rains. Finally, water in your new lawn thoroughly and try not to walk on the grass until it’s established. By following all these principles, your new lawn should grow to be a healthy and established lawn in no time!
