Busting 4 Myths about Your Grass

Home Improvement

If you want your grass to look its best, you need to take care of 2 important tasks: you should hire professional lawn care services in Atlanta for a lawn that looks expertly maintained; also, you should not believe dangerous myths about your grass.

There are a few silly things that people believe to be true about their grass and how to care for it. Here are 4 common myths and the true facts you should know.

Mowing Crabgrass Kills It (or at Least Hides It)

Crabgrass is an extremely common and hideous weed that grows on lawns. You can recognize it as a clump of ugly, large, and tangled blades that slightly resemble ordinary grass. It is a famously difficult weed to remove. And when you remove it, it just seems to grow right back.

Unfortunately, mowing your crabgrass will not kill it. Actually, it will cause the crabgrass to adapt to your lawnmower and grow wide, flat, and large. The only way to kill it and keep it dead is to excavate all of its roots and remove the dead plant from the property.

You Must Remove Grass Clippings from Your Lawn 

Apparently, some people—even some so-called lawn care "experts"—believe that you need to remove all grass clippings from your lawn immediately after the grass is cut. Some people claim that leaving clippings behind creates thatch, or a layer of dead organic matter above the topsoil that has not fully decomposed. Thatch forces your grass' roots to dig deeper and work harder to access nutrients.

Thankfully, grass clippings do not contribute to thatch. They contain a large amount of water, which means that they dry out and decompose very quickly, leaving behind nitrogen, potassium, and other nutrients your grass needs to flourish. 

Anyone who tries to sell you on removing all grass clippings is probably just trying to charge you for their time. A real expert knows that grass clippings recycle healthy nutrients back into your lawn.

Your Soil Is Probably Healthy without Fertilizer

Despite the nutrients that grass clippings provide, your yard is not healthy enough without a little help. Your yard needs a wide variety of nutrients from the soil in order to survive and look healthy. 

While grass does grow naturally in wild environments, your yard is not the wild. Every time your grass is cut, more grass grows up out of the soil, meaning that the soil is deprived of even more nutrients. Fertilizing your grass restores used or lost nutrients, which is essential to thick, green, and lively grass. 

Cutting Grass Shorter Makes It Grow Slower

Unfortunately, this is only slightly true. Cutting your grass extremely short puts your grass into a state of stress. Without long blades of grass that convert sunlight into energy it will struggle to survive. Even worse, thin and short grass is ideal for weed growth, as weeds can easily outgrow short grass in pursuit of necessary sunlight, stealing limited nutrients along the way. Removing over 1/3 of the height of your grass can even kill it. So yes, dead grass grows slower than healthy grass. However, investing in more frequent cuttings is the route to a greener, healthier lawn.

Besides, you do not have to do the work on your own. Leave it to professional lawn care services in Atlanta and trust their expert advice for the healthiest, greenest grass on the block.
