Here is Why Your Grass Isn’t Growing

Growing Grass Evergreen Gene's

Are you cutting your grass too much?

Green, growing grass, and a lush lawn is something that many homeowners and business owners desire. Here we not only promote aesthetically appealing landscapes, but they should be healthy too. Last week, we discussed the significance of healthy soil, and now we’ll go into detail explaining the top reasons why your grass isn’t growing. 

Lack of Water

Water is a viable force on multiple levels. Just like it does the body harm when it doesn’t have enough water, the same concept applies to your lawn. Lack of water will stop the growth of grass as well as cause it to become brown. If water deprivation lasts for too long, it will cause your grass to die. Shallow watering also hinders grass growth. 

Using the Wrong Fertilizers

If you hire us on to maintain your landscape, you can trust that we’ll know what fertilizers to use, and how often to use them. A lack of phosphorus or nitrogen can hinder growth, but too much nitrogen isn’t ideal either. There is a fertilizer that is ideal for every lawn, depending on its soil. You can count on us to master the nuances and intricacies that come with bringing your landscape to life. 

Cutting the Grass Way Too Short

If your lawn overgrows, then it makes sense to mow it each week. However, over-mowing a lawn stops it from looking full the way that you want it. Also, cutting with a dull blade thins out the grass over time. Sharp blades are always the most effective. 

Your Soil is Compact

Compact soil prevents your landscape from getting the nutrients that it needs. Aeration is a process that we can implement that helps break up that soil so that you can have a lush landscape. It involves putting tiny holes into your landscape so that nutrients can seep in how they should. 

If you’re saying “yes!” to a fantastic landscape, then give us a call! Yes, we’re still open. We can deliver beautiful plants to you and take care of landscape maintenance for you if you’re in the Anne Arundel County area. It’s “essential” to have a healthy lawn.
