Grass Carpet: Beautiful Lawns
Your outdoor living room is sure to experience much travel, so your flooring is an important consideration. The luxury and beauty of the flooring will influence the grandeur of the entire room, just as indoor flooring does.

A well planned outdoor garden room will have a large area for a lawn. A carpet of green is sure to be a beautiful and much needed element to your outdoor space. The cool soothing green color will add joy and inspire the eye, whether in sun or in shade. The soft and cool feel of it under your feet is delightful to walk over.

A good healthy lawn needs a proper foundation. This would include a rich growing soil at last two inches deep, with proper drainage. Without these your lawn will never obtain satisfactory results. You can remake your lawn according to these conditions as you construct your outdoor space.

After you have proper soil and drainage, the next condition is the turf. You want a smooth turf made of grasses that thrive in your locality. Your lawn should not have weeds, which predict poor seed, soils, or lack of lawn care. If you rid your lawn of weeds, and care for your lawn, it should remain weed free.

Grass is a gross feeder, quickly depleting your soil of nutrients and has to compete with tree roots. If you notice thinner grass, that is a sign of poor soil. You will need to feed your lawn, several time per year, to maintain a good lawn for your outdoor room. You will need to also keep up with mowing your grass, especially during the rainy months, as the grass grows much faster. Be sure to water your grass during the dry months as well.

There are large selections of fertilizers a homeowner can choose from to feed the lawn with. They vary it type, composition, and price. You should always apply the fertilizers based on the manufactures recommendations.  The use of sulfate of ammonia in combination with other materials has become a popular way of feeding your lawn. The sulfate of ammonia contains a high nitrogen content that will not harm your grass, but will make the soil acidic which deters weed growth.  You can apply fertilizer by hand, mix with sand, or dissolved in water and sprayed or sprinkled on. Strong application of commercial fertilizers should only be applied in the spring and fall; the grass should not be over stimulated during the summer months.

Watering the lawn after the soil becomes dry is actually harmful to your lawn. Watering should take the place of a good rain that has not come, and should not wait until a drought has occurred. Start the sprinkler before the soil is dry, and run it in one spot to allow the soil to become saturated several inches deep. If there is a pathway in your outdoor room that receives constant traffic, grass carpeting is not a good idea for this area. You should consider stepping stones, which add an attractive feature, and will not wear down as grass will. Grass should also not be planted under permanent furnishings like tables and chairs. It is better to create a permanent base for these items, as this is more attractive anyhow.
