With that being said, here are three ways that you can keep your lawn evergreen all year-round in Germantown and Collierville.
Easy way: Spray your lawn green
Sure, why not? It’s what people in California are doing right now, right?
True. However, keep in mind that the weather here in the Mid-South can be unpredictable sometimes. So while this method is definitely one of the easiest, it’s not the most efficient.
Basically, this is done by purchasing a can of green lawn care spray at your local landscaping store or some fertilizer that turns your grass green(temporarily) and spray your lawn with it. After that, it’s up to Mother Nature to decide for herself if your grass is worth keeping green.
Medium way: Installing Sod Onto Your Lawn
Okay, installing pre-grown grass onto my lawn. How bad can it be?
Well, other than that there are many types of grass and soil out there in the whole, wide world, one of the biggest problems with planting sod in your yard is that it can get a little pricey. So if want to try out this method, be sure to test out the pH level of your soil beforehand. Also, keep in mind that the weather down in Germantown and Collierville can be unpredictable sometimes. So we don’t want all of that hard work of attaching fresh sod going to waste.
Fortunately, here at Victory Lawn Care Services, we offer Tennessee grown sod. This way, you would know exactly as to what kind of grass your lawn needs.
Hard way: Scattering Seeds Around Your Yard and Priming Your Lawn With Them
This method sounds tricky, doesn’t it? Well, one thing that we can say is that this method does work.
In addition to testing the pH of the soil and figuring out what type of grass you need to grow on your lawn, all that you need to do is purchase the right kind of grass seeds, scatter them across your lawn, and prime so that the grass can stay dormant during the time when it’s not ready to come out. Only then would you have that fresh patch of grass that your lawn is crazing for.
Not sure as to what kind of grass is right for your lawn? In that case, here is a list of six sturdy grass types grown here in the Mid-South and the type of environments that they thrive in:
1.Bluegrass – A cold-season kind of grass that can stay evergreen almost all year round and is perfect for lawns that receive little or no shade
2. Ryegrass – A type of heat and drought resistant grass that can last throughout the whole winter.
3. Zoysia – A type of sturdy grass that requires a bit of shade to grow properly.
4. Bermuda – A type of sturdy grass that can survive droughts and extreme temperatures. It is the most common grass in the Mid-South and turns grey during the winter. However, if you want to use it during the winter, you’ll have to mix it with ryegrass to keep it from spreading onto your flowerbeds
5. Centipede – A type of low maintenance grass that can grow in acidic soil and turns lush green during the mildly hot weather
6. Fescue – Generally speaking, this cold-resistant grass can survive all types of weather conditions. However, if you want to keep it nice and during the summer, you’ll need to overseed it with some warm-season grasses(ex. centipede)
