Grass

The Back Story

Do you know what kind of lawn seed to use for great looking grass? It depends on whether you’re filling bare spots or planting a whole new lawn. There’s warm season grass, like Bermuda, that grows best in hot weather. It turns brown when it’s cool. You should reseed during winter. Cool seasoned lawns, like Kentucky Blue Grass, turn brown in the summer. Seed them in early fall. If pests are causing spots in your lawn, you could patch that will pretty fertilized lawn seed. You’ll need to water your lawn everyday until it’s about three inches high. Then, cut back to every other day and enjoy your lush green grass.

The Back Story

How do you water the plants in your garden? Most folks use sprinklers, but I like drip irrigation. Drip systems are more efficient because they save water. They can use up to fifty-percent less than sprinklers by delivering moisture directly to your plants roots. Your soil surface stays dry, so less weeds. Try a drip irrigation starter kit with soaker hoses. You place them around the plants you want to water and you just connect the open end of the soaker to your garden hose and turn it on. Remember to look for a drip irrigation kit you can add on to, so you can expand your system as your garden grows.

The Back Story

Here’s a tip for growing healthy flowers and vegetables in the garden. Mulch. Mulch keeps your soil moist by slowing water evaporation and keeps weeds from sprouting. Some folks like hollowed mulch made from tree bark. Other gardeners use mulch that’s made of shells from cocoa beans and it smells just like chocolate. There’s also rubber mulch made from recycled tires. It lasts longer and resists bugs. Spread mulch two to three inches deep and once the soil warms up in early spring, this simple step helps your plants stay cool once the weather gets hot and keeps your garden looking great all season long.
