Is it possible to plant a green lawn using only Ligusticum and Water Lily plants? Well, the answer is yes. In fact, the answer is probably not as surprising as it initially sounds. Let’s talk about how I planted my very first microgreen and other annuals on a rented piece of land inositol.
The first thing I did was decide which plants I wanted to grow. I didn’t have to worry about growing microgreens since they were so plentiful and inexpensive. I also wanted a variety of plants so that my lawn had color all year long, not just during the spring and summer. So, I decided to plant roses, sunflowers, and two types of grasses: Kentucky Bluegrass and Round Rock Bent Grass. I wanted to try several varieties of these to get a better idea of what would grow well together. I also included planting perennials such as Sedumena and Stachys begging for some additional color.
I decided to use a mix of medium and light-colored soil. I went with the pH level of 7 because I wanted to give both the plants and lawn a more natural look. I did this because I was using an organic mulch, not using soil that needed to be composted or turned over periodically. It’s important to note that the lawn will need to be watered fairly often once it starts growing. However, I let the soil go until it was almost dry before I watered it.
When I looked at the finished product, I was surprised at how much better the grass looked. To me it looked as though someone had thrown several tons of material in a big trash can and stomped on it. But, in fact, what I had done was to plant a mixture of grass and soil together and that’s what I call growing microgreens.
If you’re wondering about planting grass and then turning it over or cutting it back, don’t worry about it. The plants I had planted were all ready to go. I simply cut the grass apart so that I could plant those that would flower early, such as the gladioli and purple coneflower. The microgreen pieces I used for planting also acted as a weed barrier so the grass planted up there would stay alive.
This type of planting takes time. I made sure to let the grass go through that period of dormancy between each planting. Then I laid down another piece of soil to start the next batch. It’s best to alternate the kinds of grasses. Then, as the lawn grows it will be easier to get those that are already established growing up and creating beautiful color in the coming years.
If you try this method, be sure to only plant as much as needed. Don’t try to do it over. Keep some of the grass away from the fence too, to help maintain the height of your lawn. Also be sure you water the area well to help the grass grow as quickly as possible.
When it comes to planting more grass than what your Microgreen Microjob will provide, it is simply not worth it. You can add some extra grassy areas by digging up your own garden. Dig a hole twice the root width and length of your desired piece of grass. Place it in your garden with the cut end pointed down in your garden. Then, water well and let the grass go through that growing period before cutting again.
The best way to plant grass in your Microgreen lawn mowing program is to use a pre-emergent weed system. This is a two step process that you need to follow. The first step is to purchase a weed control that is organic. Follow that up by planting the grass seed. Then just allow it to grow until it is about an inch tall.
There is nothing more frustrating than getting rid of a perfectly good lawn. For that reason it is important that you spend some time prepping your lawn before planting a new one. That way you can eliminate the need of extra watering. This will help to keep the grass healthy and the color will last for longer.
As you probably now, there is much more to know than just about any other type of lawn mowing software out there. There are a number of great free resources that can help you get started. The key is to spend some time prepping your lawn before starting your job. That way you can eliminate unnecessary stress and make your lawn care project easier and faster. A little research goes a long way.
