All yards are not the same: Choosing your grass wisely.
First of all, you should determine what your ideal yard will look like, as grasses can vary in color, leaf-width, characteristic and growth density. Each little blade adds up!
Second, you must consider how much time and money you really are ready to spend on your lawn. The higher the maintenance lawn, the more you will need to put into it. This is a very important factor.
Third, your specific growing conditions will affect which seed you should choose. Things like the amount of sun, shade, rain, soil type, humidity and moisture can affect how your lawn grows. Finally, what will you be using your lawn for? Your investment may differ if you lawn is a play area or for show, or even for erosion control.
First thing first. Before you can care for a lawn, you must plant one. And, there are several things to keep in mind when choosing what type of grass seed to purchase. This is because the grass seed can grown into very different lawns. This difference could mean a lawn filled with pests and weeds, or one that is low maintenance and look great. Here are some factors that you should take in consideration while in the seed aisle at your local home and garden store.
Once you determine the needs, you will be armed with the information you need to make your decision on your seed. It all grows up from there! And, if it grows, it must be mowed.
