The Fastest Fix For A Yellow Lawn
By PASAN PERERA
Having a yellow lawn can be very disheartening, and it’s important to know what’s causing it. There are as many as 14 reasons for why your yard is turning yellow, including over and underwatering, your grass is too short, blunt mower blades, improper use of fertilizer, or pet urine, but the good news is, there’s an easy way to achieve beautiful, fresh green grass.
The solution to prevent overwatering is to water your grass less regularly but for a longer amount of time. For underwatering, gently pull on your grass to see if your lawn is dry, and if the blades pull away, you need to add more water — note, knowing the needs of the species of your grass is key to understanding how to maintain it.
A smart sprinkler system will make watering your lawn easier as wireless moisture sensors communicate with a smart irrigation controller to determine whether or not your grass needs watering. You can even control your smart sprinkler system from your phone, and even though the initial setup costs can be quite high, it’ll be worth it in the long run.
