A lot of people simply desire to have a beautiful green lawn but are not knowledgeable when it comes to the techniques necessary to achieve this purpose. If you lawn is starting to show brown spots and weed growing all over making your lawn look untidy and messy, know that there are many factors that are causing this. These factors include heavy lawn traffic, stress of heat and drought, over grown grass, entrance of unwanted exotic plants, and compacted soil. There is then a need for effective lawn renovation and installation. Lawn mowing machines are needed to renovate your lawn and to help increase the value of your property.
Lawn renovation techniques include aeration, verticutting, and sod installation. Aeration is done by digging holes in the soil so that oxygen can pass, and water can reach deep down into the soil and the roots of the plant. With aeration the drainage is improved, and the formation of puddles is reduced which helps preserve the soil compactness. Another method is slice seeding which is done by a machine that slices and seeds the lawn. With this method water infiltration channels are provided which encourages healthy growth of the turf by removing thatches and preparing seed beds for the seeds to grow faster. Most of our lawns have carpets of grasses which are less than perfect. If you want a fast seed germination then this can be done through sod installation. Seed germination will occur in 2 to 3 weeks and this can be done any time when the soil is not in a frozen state. You can install sod on hilly areas and slopes for stabilization also. You can now turn bare patches of ground into grass covered lawns with this strategy without costing you much.
