A beautiful, well-kept, lush garden with a variety of colorful flowers, shrubs, ornamental trees, traditional trees and lush green grass is not only a showcase of its owner, but above all a great place for everyday relaxation, children's play or weekend meetings with family, friends and close acquaintances. However, every garden, even the smallest one, requires constant care and proper maintenance which consists mainly in: regular tidying, loosening the soil, removing unnecessary weeds, fertilizing the plants at a precise time, and regular watering.
Scarifying and aerating your lawn
In early spring, when the snow melts and the air temperature rises, you should first scarify and aerate your lawn to improve its condition. Scarifying involves making a shallow vertical cut in the turf using a special machine (usually a scarifier), and its main purpose is to remove the remains and remnants of old, dead turf. Aeration, on the other hand, accelerates the regeneration of the lawn by puncturing the turf deeply with special spikes to loosen and aerate the soil, thereby strengthening the roots of the grass.
Fertilising the lawn is no less important than fertilising the lawn with universal or specialist garden fertilisers which contain essential nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium. Proper application of appropriate preparations provides a surprising effect in the form of thick, nice and green grass.
Systematic, regular and plentiful watering of the lawn, especially during the hottest, often record-breaking and oppressive heatwaves, is one of the basic, almost essential elements of everyday garden care. It is important to remember that even a few days of drought can have a disastrous effect on the condition of the lawn and plants. Flowers, which receive just the right amount of precious water each day to provide all the essential nutrients, delight in a unique palette of varied colours, while shrubs and grass delight in perfect, natural, succulent greenery which encourages you to spread out a blanket and relax in the shade of a spreading tree or umbrella. The vast majority of people with more or less impressive gardens use artificial watering, usually with a traditional...watering can or garden hoses. However, artificial watering is not only time-consuming but, above all, boring, tedious and monotonous, and is completely unsuitable for large areas.
Modern irrigation systems
Year after year, automatic watering is becoming more and more popular and popular among garden owners because of its many advantages. It not only makes daily garden watering easier, but above all significantly reduces water consumption and saves time. What's more, modern irrigation systems (see the offer of Kaercher irrigation systems: https://www.kaercher.com/pl/home-garden/systemy-nawadniania.html) in the form of sprinklers and drip systems, perfectly replacing traditional garden hoses and watering cans, make it possible to adjust and program the most optimal watering method for particular types and species of plants. In the offer of many manufacturers you can find equipment equipped with, among other things, a special controller that allows you to program the time, duration of watering, days of the week on which the device will start or stop working, and much more, so that the owner can leave his garden without fear, even for a few days.
Mowing the lawn
Systematic and above all skilful lawn mowing, starting as early as April and finishing only in October, will make the grass in your garden resemble a soft, fluffy, pleasant-to-touch green carpet. The mowing, which is usually done once a week, ensures proper growth, strengthening and bushiness of the grass, while at the same time significantly reducing the growth of unnecessary, disfiguring weeds. The amount of mowing depends mainly on the type of grass you have sown, but the general rule of thumb is to cut the grass by a third of its height. The lawn should be mown on dry, rainy days. Moisture can damage equipment and cause fungal diseases.
