PREPARING THE GARDEN FOR WINTER
The summer is over, bright greens like that too quickly and quietly changed the shades a Golden color, and soon the cold wind and did the bare silhouettes of the trees. Only coniferous inhabitants of the garden do not change their appearance. So, summer is over, the trees are getting ready for bed, and we have work in the garden no less than in the warmer months…
No garden is complete without a bright juicy lawn, and one of the most frequent questions: What to do with the lawn, when to stop cutting it, how to avoid spring troubles as much as possible?
HOW TO SEND A LAWN FOR THE WINTER
As a rule, in the summer the lawn grass is cut almost every week. With the arrival of autumn, this procedure will be carried out less often, as the earth will begin to cool, and the plants will slow down their growth. But stop haircut not worth, otherwise otrosshaya the grasses, when will come cold, will wither and will be borne on land, and spring she can become serious obstacle for new shoots. Therefore, in the winter the lawn needs mown to leave.
HOW OFTEN TO MOW THE LAWN AND HOW MANY TIMES DEPENDS SOLELY ON THE VAGARIES OF THE WEATHER.
Typically last haircut need conduct for several weeks until frosts and give opportunity the weed grow to 8 see But foresee the this virtually it is unrealistic. My advice, do not be afraid to carry out a haircut up to 5 cm.so that plants do not spend too much energy on recovery, and save nutrients for the winter.
Mowed grass immediately move to the already free beds. And do not have next season to think about where to get humus for fertilizer.
Do not forget to feed the grass with mineral fertilizers rich in phosphorus and potassium – they stimulate the root system of plants. This should be done in the evening, do not forget to water the lawn after fertilizing. Nitrogen fertilizers need to stop making soil, starting in August, as nitrogen increases the growth of greenery, and it is in the winter to anything.
Regular watering in autumn is not required, as the rains pour more often. If the weather is dry, it will be enough to water the lawn every five days, preventing the formation of puddles. In October, it is recommended to stop watering watering to prevent waterlogging of the soil, from which the lawn will weaken, and accordingly, as a consequence, various diseases of the lawn grass may develop.
