There are parts of the world today that have become so dry that not only has water use been restricted, it has been stopped in its tracks altogether. Bearing the heaviest brunt of such restrictions or bannings are those who love their gardens and look forward to taking better care of them. It has become ironic to notice that in these parts green lawns have become a thing of the past. This was because previously, lawns were perceived to be quite easy to maintain.
Unlike plants, trees and vegetable patches, lawns did not need much maintenance. All that was needed was just the turning on of the sprinkler system and the regular weekend mowing. If those folks only knew. Now today, those who truly have the proverbial green fingers for gardening can rest easy in the knowledge that all is not lost if they are dealing with a dry patch if you will. The grass may appear straw dry for now but like all or most vegetation, it remains formidable and can sprout to life under the proper care and maintenance.
One such effective method already in full use in drier parts of the country is that of lawn care aeration. This process does not entail the generous use of water, although water will always be needed. In layman’s terms, it is a loosening up of the soil beneath the grass surface. This is done with great care to ensure that its roots are never damaged. In fact, all focus is placed on nourishing those unseen roots. Just as long as those roots are allowed to aerate or breathe, life is in full force and greener pastures lie ahead.
For those who are prepared to take care, it is only a matter of time.
