8 Ways to Make Our Grass Greener Than Our Neighbors

Therefore, it is necessary to inject by making holes with a plant fork as deep as 5-10 cm with a distance of 10-15 cm. Then fill it with sand or fine humus. The holes will help the plant to absorb water and fresh air into the soil.

- The use of flush tools such and sprayer will be better because the water is given smoothly and evenly.
- The use of organic fertilizers needs to be done so that the soil remains loose and is expected to accelerate the process of absorption of food by plants.
