Having a garden with lush green grass is not only aesthetically good but also has health benefits. However, it is difficult to maintain the greenery of your garden. So, if you are looking for ways to maintain your garden, we are to help you.
Here are a few tips that can help maintain the greenery of your garden. You can also engage for our gardening services or gardening and landscaping services for professional help.
Water in the Mornings
Everyone knows that you should water your garden and plants to keep them alive and fresh. But do you know watering plants and grass in the mornings is more beneficial for them?
According to gardening services professionals at Satori Landscape, when you water your garden in the morning, the water gets absorbed in the soil. However, if you water your garden during the day, the water will evaporate more quickly and there will be less photosynthesis. Similarly, if you water your garden at night, there will be no photosynthesis and you will have a damp garden which is even worse.
A pro tip here is to always water your garden with cold water. Don’t ever use warm water.
Aeration Is Important
Plants need water, sunlight, and air to grow. If any of these are not provided to the plants they will not grow. So, you need to provide air or aerate your garden soil to keep it green and fluffy.

The denser is your grass the more compact the soil is and air circulation becomes difficult in the soil. So, you should regularly aerate your garden soil. Aeration is a simple, all you need to do is make 3-inch deep holes in your entire garden. You can use a garden fork to aerate your garden or you can hire gardening contractors in Singapore to do the job for you.
Using fertilizers is a great way to improve the way your garden looks. With time, your garden will loses its nutrients in the soil and needs to be replenished to thrive and look green. Fertilizers provide your garden with the necessary nutrients to help them grow and thrive and will also make the grass grow faster.
However, there are different types of fertilizers available in the market and each one has a different composition. So, it’s better to seek help from the professional gardening contractors in Singapore. They will guide you on which fertilizer is suitable for your garden and how often you should use it. Over- usage of fertilizer can cause more damage than good to your garden.

Mow Your Grass According To Type
Different types of grass have different mowing techniques. Some grass would need to be mowed more often than the others. So, you should consult our gardening services for expert advice on lawn mowing.
However, it is recommended that you raise the height of your lawnmower blades during the hot season. The longer the blades of your grass, the more it will protect the roots from the heat. Also, shorter grass blades will get damage with foot traffic but longer blades bounce back.
Another pro tip here is to mow your lawn with sharp mower blades and don’t cut more than one-third of your grass. If your grass is longer, cut it multiple times.
Keep Your Lawn Clean
Litter, Pet pee & poo can damage your lawn and cause dead patches. So, immediately clean after your pets or thoroughly shower your grass with water. Other than pet waste, your garden must also stay clear of furniture, toys, or any other items on your lawn. If these items are left long on your garden they will affect the grass growth and you will have dead patches in your garden. So, never leave lawn chairs or toys in your garden. Either remove them after use or frequently change their position.
