Green lawn

There is nothing like a green lawn. If your lawn has sustained heavy damage, you may have to start all over again in order to get the lawn you want. A green lawn is often not an accident. Though grass is supposed to be green, there are a lot of things that can mar the perfect lawn. If there is not enough rainfall, you have to water your lawn. It used to be thought that watering in the daylight led to damage when the water would evaporate. So water when you can, just don’t overdo it. If proper watering does not yield you a green lawn, you may have a weed problem. Weeds tend to be green as well, but they can choke out your grass and leave you with a patchy lawn. Remember that even if you get the perfect green lawn you may have to continue to work at it. Weeds like dandelions can blow in from neighbors’ yards, so you may never get any rest. If you have given up on a green lawn, you may have to start all over again. See also in French: Agriculture biologique and Vivre Bio
