    Creating a good looking lawn using organic methods requires a few easy steps: First, stop using chemicals. You can't go half way. Chemicals can inhibit the growth of soil-enriching microorganisms that the lawn must have. Second, get a soil test done with your own kit or by cooperative extension. Grass likes a pH in the 6.5 range. Add lime as necessary. Third, overseed with new grass seeds formulated for your lawn. Next, let your grass grow 3 to 4 inches tall to promote deep roots and to prevent the growth of crab grass. Feed your lawn with natural organic fertilizer. Leave the grass clippings on the lawn after cutting with a mulching mower.

    You’ll Fertilizing your lawn & Fertilizer spreader. It’s always best to fertilize your lawn after mowing and when the grass is dry. If the grass is wet, the fertilizer will stick to the blades and burn the lawn. The lawn mower can be one of the most neglected tools in the garden, and that’s pretty ironic when you consider it’s also one of the most expensive.
