5 ways to green up a burnt-out lawn

In summer, lawns are often victims of bad weather and lack of watering.

As a result, they end up brown and yellow.

Fortunately, it is possible to turn a burnt-out lawn green again by following these tips.

1. Make a diagnosis of your lawn

Before you begin, it’s important to determine the cause of your lawn’s degradation.

If you don’t solve the cause of the problem, you won’t be able to green up your lawn again.

Common causes of burnt-out lawns are drought, over-irrigation, lack of fertilizer, soil compaction and disease.

2. Mow your lawn regularly, leaving it a little higher than in the spring

This will allow the grass to grow and better withstand the heat.

Ideally, mow your lawn with a lawn mower equipped with a mulching function.

This will cut the grass blades shorter, which will encourage new growth to emerge.

3. Water your lawn twice a week to help it regenerate

This is best done with a watering can and rainwater, allowing the water to soak deep into the soil.

Be sure to water well, especially the areas most damaged by drought.

In hot weather, water in the morning or evening, so the grass has time to rehydrate before the sun dries it out again.

4. Fertilize your lawn

To give your lawn a boost, we recommend spreading a fertilizer on your lawn.

Don’t forget to fertilize your lawn in the spring and summer so that it is well nourished and can better withstand the effects of sun and drought.

You can apply a special lawn fertilizer, following the manufacturer’s directions, or make your own compost-based fertilizer.

5. Re-seed damaged areas of the lawn

Finally, if your lawn is really too brown and yellowed, you can seed or reseed it.

This will allow it to grow back faster and regain its beautiful green color. This will help to green up your lawn in a short period of time.

If your lawn is really badly damaged, you can consider replacing it entirely. For this, there are roll lawns that are easy to install and give a professional result.

This is a more expensive option, but it will ensure that your lawn is green and healthy.

In conclusion

These are common sense tips, but in reality, to make up for a burnt out lawn, you need to adopt the same methods as for keeping it green on a daily basis:

  • Water your lawn with water.
  • Fertilize your lawn with a fertilizer.
  • Blow your lawn to remove dust and debris.
  • Mow your lawn to remove weeds.
  • Aerate your lawn to allow air and water to penetrate the soil.
