Knowing how to grow grass effectively would mean going over factors like soil condition, seed variety and water availability. These are very important considerations before learning how to plant grass seeds the quickest possible way.
There are a lot of reasons why most homeowners now want to learn how to grow grass. One reason is the natural beauty it can project ensuring healthy looking lawns. Before, what people only know to plant grass seed the slow way. This is done by initially prepping the ground using a rake before putting down a slim layer or top soil. Afterwards, grass seeds are sprinkled before another layer of top soil is placed.
There are various ways on how to grow grass quickly. In one method, you would need materials like 2 to 3 medium bags (20 lbs.) of top soil (even cheap ones are okay), 5 pounds of grass seeds, a shovel and a garden cart or wheelbarrow as well as a hose/sprinkler and rake (optional).
Step 1 Pour one or two bags of top soil into the wheel barrow. Then, break it a little to make it somewhat loose. As a tip you can put one bag inside the wheel barrel and use the shovel by bringing it down on one end of the bag before lifting it and allowing the top soil to tumble out.
Step 2 For every bag of top soil used, get a handful of grass seeds then, throw it inside the wheel barrel.
Step 3 Use the shovel and mix the seeds and the soil together. Its like kneading bread while mixing in nuts or raisins. Make sure the soil is still fairly loose so that its easier to spread.
Step 4 Shovel out your soil mixture. Then, sprinkle it lightly on your bare spot. You can hold the shovel using your left hand and then use your right hand to twist the shovel (for the soil to shimmy off the end). Keep in mind that you only need a thin layer of soil as well as seed mixture.
Step 5 When youve distributed all the soil and the seed mixture, set up a sprinkler so that you can water that spot from time to time.
With this method, the seed and soil mixture can grow grass quickly. This is since you are putting down some rich soil together with the seeds all throughout and not just underneath or on top of it. However, you also need to understand that therell also be bad times when you plant grass seeds. There are types of grass that can be pretty hard and will even grow without much trouble, especially if the conditions are just right.
The above-mentioned method can effectively grow grass whether in large or small areas. Many find it even easier to just rake over a bare spot and loosen up existing soil before throwing in a quick layer of seed.
