The rise in environmental consciousness among the people has forced them to create healthy and better surroundings, which in turn lead to establishment of home gardens. The establishment of home gardens has now become an important component in home constructions. Home gardens should always be on the south side of building to make it more cheerful and utilitarian type. All the components of the garden should be proper proportion, well demarcated or screened by hedges, to create a systemic outlook. The land should be properly leveled with suitable gradient, weeds need to be eradicated completely and soil should be brought to fine tilth. A healthy, attractive, long-lived lawn can be established by selecting high quality seed or planting material and turfgrasses that are well adapted to the soil and climate. Lawns can be planted by using seeds or vegetative techniques like sodding, sprigging and plugging. The post planting operations like irrigation, fertigation and mowing should be judiciously followed at regular basis to keep the lawn in a healthy and beautiful condition. Irrigation must be applied correctly, especially following fertilization, to minimize potential nutrient losses. Proper mowing height increases turfgrass density and promotes deep root growth, both of which lead to a stronger lawn that is more competitive against weeds and better able to persist under environmental stresses such as drought. Proper mowing practices, along with fertilization and irrigation, can largely determine the success or failure of a lawn.

Abstract


The rise in environmental consciousness among the people has forced them to create healthy and better surroundings, which in turn lead to establishment of home gardens. The establishment of home gardens has now become an important component in home constructions. Home gardens should always be on the south side of building to make it more cheerful and utilitarian type. All the components of the garden should be proper proportion, well demarcated or screened by hedges, to create a systemic outlook. The land should be properly leveled with suitable gradient, weeds need to be eradicated completely and soil should be brought to fine tilth. A healthy, attractive, long-lived lawn can be established by selecting high quality seed or planting material and turfgrasses that are well adapted to the soil and climate. Lawns can be planted by using seeds or vegetative techniques like sodding, sprigging and plugging. The post planting operations like irrigation, fertigation and mowing should be judiciously followed at regular basis to keep the lawn in a healthy and beautiful condition. Irrigation must be applied correctly, especially following fertilization, to minimize potential nutrient losses. Proper mowing height increases turfgrass density and promotes deep root growth, both of which lead to a stronger lawn that is more competitive against weeds and better able to persist under environmental stresses such as drought. Proper mowing practices, along with fertilization and irrigation, can largely determine the success or failure of a lawn.
