Solutions for Green Lawns


As with other aspects of gardening, a healthy lawn is its own best defense against weeds and pests. It will crowd out most weeds and resist insects and disease.

 

The roots must go deep into the soil so they can seek out soil nutrients and find water during dry periods. Short mowing and light watering will prevent roots from going deep. Shallow-rooted lawns are the first to die or weaken during the summer heat. In this condition they attract insect and disease organisms.
