How To Grow Green Shade Grass

One of the biggest problems keen gardeners face is that of how to grow green shade grass to ensure there will be no dead or bare patches in the lawn. Grass needs sunlight to grow, but if you have a shady garden, your lawn may have to pay the price. The secret to the successful growing of green shade grass is proper maintenance, and we can help you with that.

When choosing a grass type for your garden, consider the shade areas. If there is a lot of shade, select an appropriate green shade grass. Fescue types are well suited for shady areas and can even tolerate a bit of drought as well.  Also consider the amount of traffic in the area, drainage, and how compact the soil is.

If it already starts to sound just a bit too complicated, relax, we will assist. Our experts in lawn care will provide a free lawn analysis and take the required steps to ensure that even the grass growing in the shady areas will look simply stunning.

One of the things we do is the aeration of the soil. Compact soil hardly makes it possible for grass roots to become strong and to receive the required nutrients and oxygen. Through our scientific method of aerating, we will help the grass to grow perfectly. In addition we check the pH level of the soil. A fertilizer mix is prepared to ensure that the grass and soil receive exactly what is needed.

A third aspect of our job is the provision of top soil in the correct amount. We also remove the weeds and take care of fungus as well as pests. Proper drainage is another aspect often overlooked, and handled by us. We even go as far as providing you with maintenance services every 13 weeks. In addition you get all the information and guidance you need regarding proper mowing and watering of the lawn to ensure optimal growth and colour.
