Use of the new lawn

If you are thinking put grass in your garden The first thing you should keep in mind is to know the characteristics of the soil, the drainage (to ensure that the soil does not get too much), the pH and the topsoil. Keep in mind that the topsoil layer must be at least 10 centimeters thick.

A good way to ensure that the garden will receive the water it needs is to install an efficient irrigation system. At present and with a few euros you can get a fully automated irrigation in the garden, you must place it before planting the lawn, so you will avoid using the hoses. The investment will be worth it.

Thanks to the automatic irrigation you will program the time and the system will only open and close the irrigation on the indicated days of the week.

While in most cases it is not necessary to install a drainage network In some cases it may be convenient, especially if the soil is clayey, thus avoiding the problem of water accumulation, waterlogging.

When preparing the soil you can place an organic fertilizer, it can be manure, mulch or peat. It will help improve the soil in case it is very bad and will improve the drainage of clay soils. The amendment with sand is placed on very clay soils, it allows to improve drainage and the ability to evacuate water in depth.

Before placing the seeds or grass loaves you must till the ground a depth of 30 centimeters. The work is hard and requires some effort, in the case of very large land you can rent a machine type rotary evaporator or motor cultivator to remove the earth easily.

When the earth is already removed you can place a slow-release bottom fertilizer. 5 or 6 kilos are placed per 100 square meters, this fertilizer will provide phosphorus, potassium and nitrogen.
