What You Can Do
Are you looking to have a yard that’s the envy of the block? You can get that dark green lawn you’re seeking with help from these tips.
Tips to Get a Dark Green Lawn
- Choose the right seed. You might love the look of Bermuda grass, but that doesn’t mean it’s the right choice for your lawn. To see your lawn up for green success, you’ll want to choose the right seed that takes into consideration your specific yard, like how much water and sunlight is available. The most common types of grasses you’ll find in PA, NJ, and DE are tall fescue and ryegrass.
- Make sure your yard gets enough sun. Like many plants, grass produces a pigment called chlorophyll. This bright pigment absorbs blue and red light, reflecting green light back to your eyes. A grass that isn’t getting enough of that light might not get that luscious green color you’re looking for. While you can’t change the entire environment of your lawn, you can make it easier for sunlight to reach the ground by doing things like keeping trees trimmed.
- Water well. The average lawn requires 1″ to 1-1/2″ worth of water a week to stay healthy. Long soakings once or twice a week are more effective than a little bit each day.
- Use fertilizer. Your lawn requires certain nutrients to thrive. The big three are nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. Oftentimes, if your grass isn’t quite green enough, your lawn is lacking in nitrogen. You can use fertilizer to amend the deficiency.
