Add some life your grass with these 3 easy tips!
Do you ever notice that your lawn looks great everywhere EXCEPT under your trees? Well you're not alone! Burge Linton with Jake's Feed in Longview is sharing some tips to get rid of that thinning grass and grow your best lawn.
1. Look up at your canopy
The first tip in getting better grass under your trees is simply looking up. You want to make sure that all of your trees are trimmed higher to allow more sunlight to filter through.
If your trees aren’t trimmed then sunlight has a harder time penetrating those limbs so the grass underneath cannot receive any light.
2. Mow your grass higher
If your trees are in good shape, the next step you’ll want to take is mowing your grass higher. The higher the blade the more sunlight it will absorb. Ideally, a good length is about 4 inches. This gives each blade of grass the optimal chance of growing as dense and lively as possible.
3. Proper water and nutrients
Another tip is making sure your lawn is getting the proper amount of water and nutrients.
The best way to ensure this is by getting a soil test. The test offered by Jake’s Feed analyzes the pH, phosporous, potassium, calcium, zinc and boron levels in your lawn. Once you know these figures you will know exactly what your lawn needs to grow.
You can find more information about the soil test here.
