Like most families in the United Kingdom, you have likely brought or hired a pool for the summertime. With the sizes and damage caused ranging massively. We all want to enjoy our summers, but we do not want to have the damaged grass afterwards. So, what can we do to prevent this and how can we help our grass recover?
How Can I Help Recover My Grass?
After the pool summertime has passed, the first thought always comes to helping your grass to recover.
In short, there is no true way to help your grass to fully recover. After a month or so of being underneath a swimming pool, your grass will have been starved of oxygen, light, and water. All that is needed to support grass growth. So, once you have removed your swimming pool you will be starting from fresh. Needing to grow new grass after every summer. Applying extra grass feed leading up to the summer months and well as using the best-branded grass seed to give your grass the best chance of survival. Even though this is not likely if your pool is going to be in the same place for a long period of time.
How Can I Prevent My Grass Becoming Damaged?
There are a few ways that you can prevent your grass from becoming damaged during this summer pool time period.
Firstly, you could consider changing to artificial grass. This way your grass will not need water, oxygen or light to survive. It will become flattened, but it can be perked back up looking new after the pool is put away.
You should also consider moving your pool around your garden. This can only be done if it is a smaller swimming pool. This should be done every other day to help your grass to stay alive underneath the pool.
