There are four main factors to look at with Artificial Grass, especially if you are looking for the best artificial grass qualities. First the quality of the yarn (PE, PP, Nylon), then the face weight of the yarn (how much yarn there is), and the then the quality of the backings. The best artifici…al grass I've seen around, especially including price comparisons etc., is at www.purchase-green.com. They have a 90 oz. face wight product with a premium non-infilled yarn and 40 oz. backings. So the total weight is 130 oz. I don't think there is a heavier product out there. I know the backings and yarn are premium quality and the thatch (simulated shorter grass) is polyethylene and nylon. They also have spec sheets on each of their product pages like at the following: http://www.purchase-green.com/artificial-synthetic-lawn/natures-sod-premier-sf.html Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the page.

Other than by painting it yellow, all you have to do is cover it up, and the green chlorophyll pigment will fade. Grass under temporary swimming pools usually turns yellow and may begin to ferment (rot). Grass that stores its pigment during the winter usually turns brown (tan) rather than yellow.
It totally depends on your climate and on how sunny/shady your lawn is; you should consult with a local gardening or lawn expert about what grass mixes make most sense for you.
There are lots of reasons, but the first thing I would check is the ammonia. Animals love to pick a PEE spot and their urine has ammonia in it. Over time, it messes up the pH levels. Sincerely, Adam I Brodofsky A & N Sod Supply Inc
Not unless it saturates the ground and is thick. The grass willjust grow and be cut with a mower the worst is for a bit the yardwill colorful.
Not necessarily. It is first important to determine WHY you havebrown grass in the first place. There are HUNDREDS of reasons whygrass will go brown. From disease, to drought, to insects. . If the reason is an insect pest such as white grubs (in coolclimate) or mole crickets (in warm climate) then …detergent will donothing to help your lawn. (Oddly enough though, Dawn detergent isused to flush out insects in an effort to diagnose a pestproblem!) . If you have a disease problem which has killed the crown of theplant, then no amount of water will bring it back to life. . However, if the reason for your brown spot is because your soilhas gone hydrophobic (ie. it will not TAKE IN water) and thereforethe lawn has dried out, a solution of 1 part dawn to 20 parts waterwill be enough to lower the surface tension of the water and allowit to penetrate the soil and hopefully rehydrate the roots. If youhave Kentucky Bluegrass, or some other "Drough Avoiding" species ofgrasss, it should come back to life within a few days of beingrehydrated. . However, you should know that if the problem has gotten so badthat the grass has died as a result of the drought stress, you arebest to re-seed or re-sod the area and start from scratch! (MORE)
You build a weed wick (Google "weed wick applicator") that hangs in front of or behind whatever vehicle (ATV, mule, golf cart, tractor) you have that hangs horizontally about 12" above the desirable grass tops. The wider the wick, the faster the coverage. Fill the wick feeder with Roundup concentrat…e and after the wick has become moist with the herbicide, simply drive over all of the area you wish to treat. The herbicide wipes onto the blue stem tops without contacting the shorter grasses below. In a few days you will begin to see the unwanted grass begin to die out. Works great. Good luck. (MORE)
If you're in the Midwest or any other temperate zone, you don't.. There are some things you can do during the winter to improve your existing lawn. Sow seed in late winter, early spring when there is still a chance for snow and just before the freeze thaw cycle is in its most dramatic. The freeze t…haw loosens the ground and creates nature's perfect seed bed. You can take advantage of this by broadcasting turf seed over the ground. Preferably while it's snowing, you can easily see where the seed is going on top of snow and if it snows enough, the snow will hide the seed from hungry birds. As the snow melts the seed is drawn into the soil and that perfect freeze thaw seed bed. It sits there waiting for spring to have it jump out of the ground.. You can lay sod down to give the appearance of lawn (good luck finding it) but without warm soil and active roots it will not take. You may get lucky with some of the turf making it through the winter but in general it will be weak or nonexistent by spring. (MORE)
Grass changes from green to yellow when it dies because of lack of sunshine or water the moisture in the grass will evaporate and that dries it up and as the grass dies it changes coulors
That is the grass dying. Plants need sunlight in order to photosynthesize. Covering grass with a board is depriving it of sunlight.

Various botany books on how to key out or identify grasses areavailable at any bookstore or nature store you come across. It'salso completely fine to use the Internet via your favourite searchengine such as Google to see what grass could possibly be growingin your lawn. Basically, though, the best w…ay to ID the type of grass in yourlawn is to not use the grass that has been repeatedly cut with themower, but grass that has never been or can't be cut with the moweror even clipper due to accessibility issues. Start by looking atthe tip of the blade of the grass--hopefully a blade that hasn'tbeen cut, because if it's been cut that won't help you at all--theshape of the blade in terms of width, length, and how much of a Vis formed with the blade. Then look at the part where the bladeconnects to the stem, and look at the collar, the auricles, and theligule and see if they exist, the shape, and size of them. Roll thestem in your fingers to feel how round it is. Some grasses arenever completely round in the stem. Finally, if you can, find agrass that has an "inflorescence" or a seed head (or the floweringpart of the grass) and note the size, shape, and structure of theinflorescence. Then use all that information, and probably morewhich hasn't been mentioned here, to identify the grass growing inyour lawn. The same method to ID the grass in your lawn is also used to IDgrasses grown in pastures and native grasslands. The differencebetween your lawn and the latter two areas is that your lawn isbasically a monoculture of one particular species of grass, whereasthe latter two are a polyculture of several grass species, from twoto at least 10 within a few hundred square feet. Please see the related link[s] below for tips on identifyinggrasses. (MORE)
If it is yellow, or brown, you should water them more. The best times are right after the sunset or early in the morning because the sun may evaporate the water before the grass gets it.
Get the maximum strength Roundup or Ortho Killzall concentrate and a tank sprayer. Mix the Roundup triple strength and add a few ounces of vegetable oil per gallon. Spray areas of the torpedo grass. Depending on level of infestation, you'll likely have to kill large areas of your lawn. Repeat treatm…ents over a couple of weeks, to make sure you've really gotten it. Re-sod, or seed the dead parts of your lawn. Watch very carefully for new sprouts of torpedo grass and retreat- this time spot treatments will work since the weed will not be as wide spread. Areas bordering concrete are very likely to have some regrowth. Don't- waste any time pulling torpedo grass, even if you dig it out. Pulling encourages growth, and getting every last bit of tuber-like rhizome is impossible. Chemicals are the only thing that seems to have an effect. Some Professor at the University of Florida is working on a fungus to take care of it. Guess we'll wait and see! July 2009 (MORE)
You can use wheat to lower ph of soil and to makes your soil softer and absorbs water easier, because it has a protein in wheat that causes soil to form macro soil, which in turn gives supplys the soil with more nutrients.
A dull mower blade will "tear" the grass instead of "cut" it. The jagged blades of grass will dry up and cause your lawn to look brownish or even yellowish - much like when cut grass clippings turn from green to brown/yellow as they dry up.
Most northern types do in the late fall, and come back in spring. Some southern types (which are not true grasses) stay green for as long as they have enough water to maintain them.
Typically its the other way around....bermudagrass takes over everything. First, make sure it's buffalograss before you proceed with the following recommendations otherwise you may amplify the problem with another grass species Bermudagrass is a much more aggressive spreader and faster grower than b…uffalo. If you want to get rid of the buffalo, water your lawn regularly and apply fertilizer as recommended by your agricultural extension office. Bermuda responds aggressively to water and fertilizer and buffalo not so much. Also, keep your lawn mowed regularly... at least once a week. Buffalo does not like to be mowed and will stay very thin if mowed. This will encourage the Bermuda to take over. (MORE)
If a black sheet of plastic is laid on the grass, the grass will turn yellow because the the starch produced in the grass gets consumed up . since no sunlight is available to the plant to produce more starch,it will gradually start turning yellow. ;-). ----------------------. The loss of green col…oration equals the loss of chlorophylls, which is the result of the plant putting chlorophylls in storage when sun light is absent. (MORE)
Your lawn can go yellow for a varity of reasons. like when objects are placed on it the grass starts lacking sunlight and goes yellow. or lack of water, too much pesticide or moles. maybe its not getting enough sunlight. Animal urine won't help either. If it starts going yellow water it or use lawn …feeds. cutting grass does have a very harmful effect somtimes as when you cut it, it will lose a lot of moisture. so after cutting water it and or use lawn feed. Grass can recover. (MORE)
Depends on where you live. Here in the south bermudagrass is good for a dense, semi-drought tolerant lawn. It can be sowed from seed or sod as is relatively inexpensive.. Becomming more popular is Zoysia grass lawns. This forms a thick lawn and is very drought tolerant. It can only be sowed from so…d and is more expensive. It also has some shade tolerance.. Buffalograss should not be considered if you are wanting a manicured looking lawn. (MORE)
You can bring a sample of the grass to a nurseury and they can identify that. They are experts.
\nYou need to water it. Sometimes yellow means lack of iron. Try water and if it doesn't workp take a fertilizer and a specialist's opinion.
They have superpowers . Its the same mechanism as putting too much fertilizer in one spot, it "burns" the plant.
can I lay a 4" slab of concrete over my sod lawn? It's a pain to dig out all the sod. I figure I can cut it short, lay in my rebar with the dobies under the bar and pour the concrete. What will happen over the next ten years???
the wheel that enters the grass 1st will slow down due to friction. if you keep pushing it will act like a moving pivot.
Pavement is black. Black means an absence of reflected light. Atoms that "are black" reflect little or no light. They also reflect little or no heat. When the sun shines on something black, it absorbs or retains most of the thermal energy that is radiated onto it, which makes it hot. Grass is g…reen, and green is a lighter color. It reflects more of the light that the sun radiates on it. It also reflects more heat, which means it doesn't retain as much heat. (MORE)
It depends which kind of grass, Horses prefer the softer and wheater grass, so lawn grass isn't really an option but I'm sure it would be fine.
don't you mean 'thatching'?Threshing is the process of removing theseed from a grass crop after cutting. This is not usually a lawnprocess but is carried out by the producers of lawn seed.
Because you don't need to reseed it every year, as you would with annuals. Perennials come back after every growing season, or after every winter. Note that what is grown on lawns up north is different than what is grown down south.
When one of the lawn mower's wheels enters the grass it causes the lawn mower to slow down due to friction. If you keep pushing on the lawn mower, the wheel on the grass will act like a moving pivot, and the lawn mower will turn to a different angle.
No. The grass will snap rather than cut cleanly -- it's worse than cutting with a dull blade. Let the lawn thaw up and dry out before cutting.
Mulching grass clippings back into the lawn is actually really good for the grass. It helps to put nutrients back into the soil and it also enriches the overall composition of the soil.
Please do not kill them there are natural predators such as bats, birds and frogs that need to live on these. If you kill things you upset the natural balance of the local ecosystem and you will find something else that you don't like will appear and it will be even worse.
Wire Grass can be a pretty invasive weed. Unfortunately, there is no selective way to kill wire grass in your lawn. The best thing to do is to use ready to use Roundup and spot treat the wire grass. Once the wire grass is dead you can plant grass seed in any bare areas left by the dead wire grass. Y…ou have to be careful using Roundup in lawns because it kills all grass, so just spot treat the wire grass. (MORE)
It is the green things that grow out of the ground in parks and usually in yards and garden. A lawn is the same as grass . Like, you hear people saying that they 'mowed the l awn '. It is a plant but lots of it grows out of the ground.

The tank is probably not deep enough and the roots of the grass are drying out.
Lawn grass turns yellow not simply due to lack of water, but due to lack of fertilizing. I have had a well-watered yellow lawn that turned green within one week of fertilizing. The reason? Over-watering washes nutrients (fertilizers) down through the soil out of reach of the grass's roots.
Well it is the light. IT comes down to the earth like a curse and then bam. the grass is yellow. comment-"Dude,that is awesome" -wetgamer453
Moles are usually the mammal that tears up your lawns, looking for grubs and earthworms. Regardless, the damage is not permanent, and as soon as the mole moves on the soil will begin to return to normal grade. Reseeding in the spring or fall can be done if needed, to cover any large bare spots.
It could be, depending on what chemicals have been used on it. Pesticides and fertilizers and herbicides can be bad for you.
Your weeds are 'eating' all the nutrients meant for your grass so they are healthy and your lawn isn't. I suggest pulling them out and making sure ALL the roots are removed. :)
Over-watering, under-fertilized, possibly animals doing their business on the grass, another plant stealing their water supply, it could be too hot or too cold... and those are all the reasons I can think of.
I have observed that if the clippings fall in lumps on the lawn, the lumps will eventually turn live grass underneath brown in color and unable to grow. The clumps seem to occur when the grass is wet or builds up on the underside of the mower and falls on the lawn. I don't see that to be a big probl…em except that I would rather have the clippings more evenly spread out and disintegrate so it fertilizes the lawn naturally. (MORE)
Hate to say it but most grassy weeds are best handled with a shovel, hopefully it hasn't gotten out of hand yet

I'm not sure about stadium grass, but this may help if it looks rubbish. Here's my story, together with the tips I followed to get my lawn looking much better. I am a total amateur by the way and make no claims to any expert knowledge whatsoever. OK, I bought a new build house a few years ago. Aft…er some months, I realised that the rear garden lawn left a LOT to be desired. It was patchy, lumpy, had terrible drainage problems and generally looked awful. There were loads of weeds, at least as much moss as grass and I was tempted to tear it all up and start again. The ground is basically all clay and needed a lot of work to improve it. However, I can only speak for myself and my own experience, but I did the following and things are now far better. 1) Mow and rake the lawn before anything else to remove any thatching or general rubbish that has settled on the grass. You should expect to pick up about 2 sacks of junk from the average lawn. It's amazing how much junk there was on mine. Old weeds, old grass, moss and everything else you expect to fall on your lawn over a period of time. If you reveal major bare patches, you can always reseed these by loosening the soil, adding some good top soil and mixing in some grass seed. Water this lightly each day, without drowning the seeds and cover thinly with the topsoil to stop the birds getting to it. They will always eat a few, but you can always top up if they peck at too many. Grass should appear in tiny shoots within a couple of weeks. It'll get much thicker and stronger over time, but patience is the key word here. 2) MAJORLY IMPORTANT TIP: You must create drainage to the whole lawn, especially if it's on clay and water is sitting on top of it. My lawn felt like a bowl of custard when I walked on it before. To improve this, I poked a garden fork deep into the ground at regularly spaced points and added Wickes sharp sand into the holes to keep them from filling up with earth. This was a great tip that I read about online. It wasn't hard to do, but a few blisters later, it has definitely made a big difference. I used four bags of sand, which only cost about Â£6 or so. WELL worth the effort, as it has drastically improved the drainage and the grass has returned where it was dead or waterlogged. It also got rid of the majority of the moss, which thrives in damp conditions of course. 3) After these jobs, when I mowed my lawn, I tried at various times not raking / raking and experimenting with how this affected things. I read one article that said do not rake clippings and others that said you should do so. Personally, I have settled on raking, as I found that it made the lawn look better overall. I compare it to combing your hair each morning, as this will obviously make the lawn appear more tidy and manicured. I can see the benefits of leaving clippings on the lawn, as it is supposed to provide nutrients, but overall I found that it just caused too much thatching and looked very untidy in the longer term. To rake has proven much better in my case. 4) Keep mowing the lawn each week! Sounds too simplistic, but regular mowing made a huge difference. You have to teach your stubborn lawn how you want it to look, so keep making it look that way and it will start to do what it's told. BUT, be careful, as I was mowing my lawn far too short every time for a long time and I found that this did NOT help at all. Put your mower on a medium setting, not the shortest setting. The shortest setting was just too much and it was hacking the lawn to pieces in places. Mow more often and less severely is my advice. 5) Feed the lawn a good feed with moss killer. I just bought one off the shelf, trying not to get too involved in the ins and outs of the chemistry. It was a decent brand and more or less did what it said on the tin. This is a good way to improve the colour and texture. It's not a cure-all, but it's one extra thing to help things along a little. Overall, the main thing you need is to wait and have patience to get your lawn right. I found that the things I did made a bigger difference in the second summer, not so much the first time I carried them out. They did improve the lawn fairly quickly and definitely made an impact within a couple of weeks, but it was the second summer that the benefits really were much more noticeable. After following these tips, I have seen a big improvement and am quite pleased overall. trust me, my lawn was AWFUL before. Now, I feel that, whilst it's not yet a bowling green, it is far more respectable and actually looks something like what a lawn should look like at least. I can now enjoy the garden, rather than looking at the sorry excuse for a lawn that was there before. I hope this helps anyone reading this and good luck! (MORE)
A variety of things can distinguish a well manicured lawn from a field of grass. Height and color of the grass is a good indicator as to what is a lawn and what is just a field of grass. Additionally, a field of grass will have far more weeds than a typical lawn would.
Your turf loves water anyway, and that is the best way to decomposethe dead grass; frequent watering, several 5 minute waterings a daypreferable, the idea being to keep it moist.
