You’ve probably put a lot of thought into the design of your lawn, and a lot of money into buying the best lawn products on the market — from drought resistant grass seed to state-of-the-art aerating tillers and rakes — you’ve put a lot of planning into making sure that you’re planting lawn seed correctly and giving it all the essential nutrients it needs to grow.
And when you start seeing those first sprouts of newly-planted grass seeds, it’s definitely a proud moment. But now the next step is approaching quickly, because planting Pearl’s Premium will give you a beautiful green lawn.
So with all of that in mind, here are just a few tips for when you’re caring for a brand new lawn that’s grown shortly after planting grass seeds:
Hopefully, you will have already removed any weeds during the tilling process, already laid out peat moss or manure mixtures, and already followed the instructions on your Pearl’s Premium grass seed containers. Make sure you do not water your lawn too much, because flooded soil will discourage the roots from growing deeper.
Don’t be afraid to mow your lawn for the first time, even if the grass looks a bit fragile. Once the grass is about three to four inches high, make sure to use a lawn mower with a sharp blade so that you cut the top of the grass cleanly — dull blades can tear fragile grass and make it less capable of growing back.
Experts recommend that you mow your lawn about once a month during the spring and summer, although you may have to adjust this frequency depending on how quickly your grass grows.
Sounds pretty simple, right? Planting grass seed and growing your own grass is something that will definitely pay off with a beautiful lawn.
