A beautiful lawn is one of the most desired features in gardens all around the world. Here are five useful steps to do for the perfect lawn.1 CUTTING. Regular cutting of the lawn is important because it thickens the grass.

How to cut?
- Switch directions and patterns each time you mow so that the grass straws aren’t pressed in the same direction every time
- The rule of thumb is to shorten the stem by around half to two-thirds to approximately 5 centimetres

How to fertilise?
You should fertilise the lawn every four or five weeks from the beginning of the spring. Nitrogen, potassium and phosphorous are necessary and mixes of special lawn fertilisers are readily available at your local garden retailer. How much to use is carefully indicated on the packages.3 WATERING. How often you need to water your lawn depends on temperature and humidity. When the grass needs water, it will begin to take on a blue-gray tint, and the older leaf blades on the plant will begin to curl up or wilt. If you have planted a new lawn, you will usually need to water once a day so the seeds can germinate and a good solid root system can form. 4 WEED CONTROL. Smaller weeds you can remove with a manual scarifier. Daisies and dandelions you can remove with a root weeder.
- Get as much of the root as possible in order to prevent the regrowth
Make several holes in the lawn and fill them with coarse sand. This allows water from the surface to flow away and also provides the roots with oxygen. In order to clear away dead roots and other debris you might want to scarify your lawn. By removing the lawn thatch you provide more breathing space for the lower parts of the grass and help the stems grow better.
