Types of lawns are currently diverse and sometimes amaze the imagination of their owners. The types of lawns proposed in the photo can be easily implemented on your personal plot with the help of a competent choice of plants and grass. The main types of lawns for dachas and gardens are traditional sowing coverings, the care of which is not difficult. The material describes in detail what lawns are and how to properly grow them.
Which Lawn Is Better to Sow: Round or Ribbon-Like?
In the garden, pleasant for life, there is always a lawn, an open green space pleasing to the eye. It improves the microclimate of the site, serves as an excellent frame for the mix border, contrasts effectively with bright flowers and greenery of conifers. To get started, you need to find out for yourself which lawn is best planted in order to simplify the procedure for caring for it as much as possible.
You can visually increase the area of a small area by arranging a round lawn, this form will hide the corners of the site with the help of plants planted there and visually expand the space. It is believed that the minimum diameter of a round lawn is 3 m. Rectangular lawns look interesting and logical in a small garden. In general, the use of simple geometric shapes in gardens (a circle, a rectangle, a square, and an oval), not only as a lawn but as a form of a reservoir or resting area, even in a small space, creates the impression of spaciousness.
When redeveloping the old garden, it is convenient to use a lawn of ribbon-like shape, wriggling between existing buildings and adult plants. A lawn of this shape is appropriate in small gardens, where planting is located in its protruding parts, covering the view of the garden and making it impossible to see through the plot.
Disfigure the lawn and visually sharply reduce its size unsystematic planting of plants inside it. It is always ugly, and mowing such a lawn is painful.
When designing a lawn, one should not forget that it requires serious enough care – constant weekly mowing by a lawnmower, watering in a dry summer, periodic weeding, regular fertilizing. After mowing the lawn, it is necessary to correct its edge, making the border of the flower garden clean and beautiful. Do the lawn thoroughly, take its breakdown seriously, then it will last for many years. One of the main conditions for creating a good lawn is digging the soil to a depth of at least a bayonet shovel and thoroughly removing all weeds. Then you need to prepare fertile and loose soil under the lawn, then level it with a rake and ram it with a roller or rammer. When leveling and tamping the land, be sure to make a 3-15 ° deviation from the house. On a well-compacted soil well-compacted, there should be no trace of shoes. Sow the seeds of lawn grass in dry, calm weather (seeding rate of 50 g / sq. M), be sure to leave reserve seeds (1 kg/hundredth), in the spring you will have to sow the lawn in some places. For uniform and friendly germination of seeds, the soil should be constantly moist. After sowing, cover the soil with white lutrasil and pin it to the ground, it will create comfortable conditions for seed germination. Remove it when the grown grass begins to lutrasil lift. When the grass grows to the width of the palm, it should be mowed for the first time. Well, then weekly until the end of the season.

Rolled Lawn Care
A faster, but also more expensive way is to use an option such as a rolling lawn. It is important to know that soil preparation should be as thorough as for a seed lawn. Hold the roll firmly against the soil so that there is no air gap between them. Moisten the laid carpet; the lawn should not dry out.
Caring for a rolled lawn is not much different from growing traditional grass. The lawn needs to be mowed once a week, after mowing it is necessary to water, it is necessary to water the lawn in drought. In early spring, immediately after the snow melts, the lawn looks disgusting, you can not walk on it until the soil has completely dried out. After drying, the lawn should be thoroughly combed with a fan rake. You can’t walk on the lawn in winter. In spring, the lawn must be fertilized with complex fertilizer, for clay soil, this is enough for the whole season, on the sandy one you need to fertilize up to 5 times during the season, but in smaller doses. That is, the lawn is an unearthly beauty, but also a fair amount of trouble. You can now only the part of the lawn that you walk along, the rest of the tree can either not be mowed at all, or do it once a month. It turns out very interesting
Summer Lawn Care
Lawn Care in the summer depends on the type of coating chosen and the projected landscape forms. You can arrange a so-called meadow if you mow every 10-14 days that ground cover of wild herbs that is on your site. A couple of months of mowing – and it will get a cut green look so sweet to your heart. The meadow is not demanding on watering, weeding is not necessary, and even after winter, it comes to its senses much faster than our pampered treasure lawn.
You can make a green cover of white clover, just remember that the clover disperses its seeds to a distance of more than 50 m, so it will not be possible to arrange both a classic lawn and a clover meadow in one small area. If the clover is not torn out, it will quickly destroy all nearby plants, especially the delicate lawn grasses. Clover meadow does not need watering, weeding, and top dressing, and you can mow it once a month, you can cut it partially, only those parts that are often walked on.
It is difficult to create a quality lawn in the shade or, conversely, in the hot sun, on a steep slope or close to the trunk of an old tree. But there are few places in the garden where ground cover plants will help us out. This is a great alternative to the lawn, they don’t need to be mowed at all, but you can’t walk on them if you need to pass in this place you need to lay slabs, make a step-by-step path.
Of course, before planting the ground cover, you should prepare the soil and remove the rhizomes of weeds. The first time after planting, weeds should be carefully weeded out, but after the ground cover has grown and closed, they will require almost no care.
