With the help of these techniques, you can make your grass greener than your neighbor. So, let’s get started!

Prepare of soil

Preparing the soil is very important in order to grow grass. Soil acts as a lifeline to grow plants, it provides minerals and nutrients that help organisms to grow and transfer energy. For preparing a garden, you first need to understand what kind of soil is best to grow gardens.

  1. How to maintain pH

To grow grass seeds, having the right pH rate is important. Plants mostly require neutral pH i.e., 7 for growth. Highly acidic or alkaline could spoil the productivity of plants. However, some seeds require slightly acidic or alkaline pH in order to grow.

You can check the pH of the soil with the help of a pH meter or you can use a homemade solution. Take soil in a cup and add half in vinegar and half in baking soda. If it reacts with vinegar it’s neutral and if it reacts with baking soda it’s acidic.

By adding lime or wood ash you can increase the acidity. And by adding sulfur, aluminum sulfate, or organic matter you could increase the alkaline pH, depending on the seeds requirement.

  1. Soil nutrients

Minerals are important for plant growth. They help in energy transportation and the exchange of gases. Calcium, Phosphorus, Nitrogen, Potassium are some of the macronutrients that help in a plant’s functions.

To increase the soil nutrients you can prepare organic compost at home. It can be made by fruit scraps, vegetable scraps, coffee grounds, or eggshells. They add necessary nutrients to the soil that helps plants to grow. This organic matter is called humus. By adding humus to your compost you can increase plant productivity.

  1. Smooth soil texture

Loam soil is a mixture of sand, silt, and clay and is best for plantations. It is the perfect balance of 3 that has the perfect texture, and properties that help to grow grass seeds and many other plants.

It is better because of its water holding capacity, aeration, texture, pH, and minerals. Prepare loam soil to grow grass, which helps its growth. You can use garden tools to smooth the texture of the soil.

  1. Maintain moisture

Watering is essential for the growth of seeds. Maintain moisture content by watering grass seeds up to 1-2 cm deep, not deeper than that, otherwise, seeds won’t sprout. Use water pipes with spray to control the water range.

Moist soil daily, which helps seeds to germinate faster so that your garden will be full of fresh and green grass.


Soil is more important even than seeds in the preparation of plantations. So, maintain soil pH, texture, moisture, and nutrition in order to maintain a green garden.
