PLANTING A NEW LAWN?
A sometimes overlooked aspect of planting or maintaining a lawn lies in not taking into account the nature of the soil the lawn is to be planted in.
There are three basic types of soil: (1) clay-laden - consisting mainly of very fine particles that retain water And have a tendency to stick together or ball-up if you try to squeeze a handful (2) sandy soil - made of much more grainy particles and that have a greater difficulty holding moisture, as it tends to percolate right through this material, and (3) loam - which is a combination of both sand and clay.
Once you have a sample of the soil in your planting area, it is wise to get a soil analysis which will tell you the pH (acidity or alkaline nature of the soil) and the amount of nitrogen, phosphorus and other organic material present - and - how far off the mark your soil is to an ideal composition and texture that will best promote growth.
Soil amendments are materials such as humus, coco-coir, shaved bark, and compost. They must be added only as necessary dependent on the specifics and/or deficiencies of a given soil. They can result in improved aeration, drainage and root penetration, and a healthy microbial environment that will promote the growth and well being of your lawn.
