Lawn maintenance in Antibes
Maintain your lawn with Fernandes Jardins in the Alpes-Maritimes
Watering, mowing, fertilizing, tracking down weeds ... Having a beautiful lawn is often synonymous with a real schedule of maintenance tasks. However, well chosen and established, the lawn grows nicely and requires only a few attentions.
What if mowing the lawn every week, at a height of 2-4 cm, was unnecessary or even harmful? In addition to the cost of energy used and the time spent on the chore, repeated passes of the mower can compact the soil. By depriving grasses of much of their foliage, they are weakened and become less competitive with plantains, dandelions and other plants considered to be weeds. The rule of thumb for a quiet lawn is to mow high (about 7-8cm, leaving a third of the foliage) and only every 10-15 days.
Are you looking for a gardener?
A well-established lawn, that is, made with seeds adapted to the soil and climate, is resistant to drought. Under the sun, the grass turns yellow, but as soon as it rains again it turns green and regains its qualities. In exceptionally hot and dry weather, water enough each time to thoroughly wet the soil throughout its depth - but not too much which could lead to asphyxiation of grass roots and deep leaching of nutrients from the soil. Watering the lawn should not exceed 20 l / m2. How to measure this quantity? By placing a tin can in the watered area so that you can check the water level (it should not exceed 2 cm). The frequency of watering the lawn depends on the weather and the nature of the soil. As a guide, in dry weather, we recommend watering twice a week in dry soil, once a week in medium soil and once every week and a half if the soil is heavy. Use several sprinklers to distribute the rainwater evenly over the entire surface.
Water evenly and without forming puddles, from 5 to 10 liters / m² (15 to 20 minutes with automatic sprinkler) Proceed in the evening to limit evaporation and waste, Prefer a copious and spaced watering to a superficial and frequent watering .
