By A.Caxton

You have the ability to make your grass golf course perfect. By following the two rules in this article, you will be able to make your lawn into the oasis that you need.

Green, lush lawns are the goal of most homeowners. To reach that goal, however, it takes quite a bit of time and effort, as well as knowledge. You will find, though, that you can make the golf course or horse race lawn that you desire with just a little effort. You can learn how to get that type of grass below.

Easy and Simple Ways to Make Your Turf Beautiful

Even you can create the great looking turf type of grass that you see on a golf course. You only have to be willing to put in the time and effort that it will take to make your yard into that lush oasis that you deserve. You can have a beautiful lawn just be following these two rules – the rule of 25 mm and the rule of third. These rules are explained below.


Lawn Watering: Watering the lawn should be done just enough so that the water that evaporates is replenished and the grass gets the water it needs. The rule of 25 can give you a basis to replenish the water lost through evaporation.

This will help you when watering the lawn. Take a small dish and keep it in the area of your landscaping where you are watering. Put about 25 mm of water in the dish. After have watered the area, place the dish in the area and allow the water to evaporate. Keep track of how long it takes for the water to evaporate and then water the landscaping area at this time interval.

Ideally, watering should be heavy and not regular versus shallow and frequently. If you only water a little, then the roots will start to look for water at the top of the ground. You also need to beware of going to the other extreme, because it could destroy the grass, instead of nourishing it.

It is not over-watering that will kill the grass, but water logging is what does it. Over-watering is actually a good thing. If you do this infrequently, along with adding a does of nitrogen rich fertilizer, you will create spongy grass that will be extremely comfortable to walk on.

You should water your lawn early in the morning to allow the water time enough to penetrate into the ground. Around noon is when water evaporation is most prevalent so watering at this time would be a waste. You want the water to penetrate into the ground to nourish your type of grass, so it is important to water in the evening or morning when the evaporation rate is not high.

Mowing Turf Care

The second thing that you will do to take care of your lawn turf is mowing it carefully and on a regular schedule. This rule is called the rule of third. The first thing that you need to remember is that you do not need to cut the grass more than a third of its existing length. Cutting it any more will kill the grass, so this is an important rule to follow.

When you cut the grass too much, it hurts the root system. Then the root system does not develop properly. That is why you need to watch how close you cut the grass. In most cases, the grass blade length will be between 20 to 40 mm. For buffalo grass, for example, you need to allow the grass to remain between 30 to 40 mm in summer and winter before you cut it. By following the rule of third, you will keep the length in the recommended length and keep the grass healthy.

You can leave the cut grass on your lawn instead of removing it if you so choose. This will give the grass food and nourishment. It is important that you make sure that thatching does not occur, because if it does, the grass growth will be restricted.

By using these two simple rules, you can get a beautiful lawn that looks just like a golf course!
