As the weather changes and getting appropriate for another garden preparation, green-fingered Brits are probably thinking of fixing their lawn again. After the battering happened in winter, the yard grass is one of the concerns which needs extra repairing. Because of this, garden experts revealed ten unusual things to be your grass growth boosters.
Now it is time to have the list of unusual grass growth boosters after getting into some odd pesticides and weird fertilisers. The specialists’ list includes aspirin, urine, and garlic that could significantly aid the growth of your garden grass this spring season.
Ten Unusual Grass Growth Boosters:
Garlic is a root vegetable that will help your grass to grow. You may distribute several cloves of garlic over your lawn to make the surface smooth. As a result, parasites will be restrained from getting into and destroying the roots.
2. Heat Lamps
Grass will not grow with artificial light alone. Try to target a heat lamp at a worn area of the lawn strictly. This will give the boost needed of your backyard patch as the light from the lamp can heat the soil and imitate warmer quality.
3. Stilettos Shoes
When the grass gets too thick, the roots cannot successfully absorb the nutrients and water it needs. Therefore, something is necessary for the aeration of your lawn. You may consider walking around your garden in your high heels or spiked golf shoes to improve aeration. Because of that, you can help your grass to grow and they can survive a little longer than usual.
If you have been spending your money on toxic chemicals and you finally decided to go organic, you may try using apple cider vinegar to address the weeds on your lawn. Not only the acetic acid it has will prevent the weed growth but also kill small pests that harm your garden. Furthermore, the vinegar will do its work but will not damage the soil if you do the spraying right.
5. Test Tubes
Regularly checking the pH levels of garden soils can help green-fingered Brits to neutralise the excess alkaline or acid present in your lawn. The nutrients absorbed by the grass should be accurate because this could improve its growth prospects.
Copper is an effective fungicide that can protect your grass from infections. Bury a copper such as 1p and 2p coins in your soil. When the metal has slowly leached from the pennies, they can already spoil the fungal spores in the land. With this small investment you did, you can have a much healthier lawn after a few years.
This might sound a bit odd, but grass helps another grass to grow. Rather than bagging and throwing the grass from trimming, you should consider leaving them alone on the lawn with the cut grasses.
Also, you could do some brewing of the grass in a big barrel. Let that sit for a week and then use that nitrogen-rich ‘tea’ to water your lawn.
8. Human Urine
Speaking of unusual, human urine can also be an effective grass growth booster. Try applying it directly to have more visible results.
However, if you need to do a dilution to reduce the acidity and salt, you can do it with ten parts of water and one part pee.
9. Rusty Nails
Photosynthesis happens with chlorophyll and iron is needed to have chlorophyll. It is much needed to generate energy for growth. To prevent iron-deficiency and help to boost the iron in your lawn, try adding old and rusty nails to water to create an iron-rich solution.
Dissolved aspirin in a jug of water can be an additional resistance to bacteria and insect pests. Dissolve aspirin into the water and leave it for a couple of weeks. Be careful not to overdose it, though, because that can damage the plants.
