The green space on your backyard always needs special care. To keep your lawn in good condition, you should take care of regular mowing, optimal watering, and beneficial fertilization.

Lawns should be watered before the growing season begins, but excessive moisture can lead to weed growth or even fungal diseases. The Mirror explains how to make your lawn thick with a simple ingredient.

Effective fertilization

Experts from Garden Olive Firewood explain that eggshells are all you need for a green and blooming lawn.

Specialist Dan McCarthy noted that there are several reasons why you should use eggshells to fertilize your garden plot. It will not only benefit the lawn, but also improve the flowering of border plants or potted flowers.

Eggshells are a powerful fertilizer due to their PH buffering properties. The shells enrich the soil with calcium, releasing nutrients into the soil and generally improving its structure.

As an added bonus, this fertilizer can also repel some pests, so there are many benefits to using egg waste.

How to fertilize the soil with eggshells

First, you can simply grind the eggshells into a fine powder, which will help them absorb into the soil faster.

"Collect clean, dry shells and crush them into small pieces or powder," McCarthy explained.

"You can use a mortar and pestle, a rolling pin, or a food processor to grind it effectively. The finer the shell, the faster it will decompose and release nutrients into the soil.

Adding the crushed eggshells to the compost will help enrich it with other minerals, improving the overall nutrient content.

An alternative way is to make a rich compost tea. Simply soak the crushed shells in water for a few days to extract the calcium and other minerals. Then strain the mixture and water the beds with it.

In the spring, try adding some crushed shells to the holes before you plant your plant or seedling. This will provide a slow source of calcium for the plant roots.

In addition, you should fill the bottom of the pots with crushed eggshells to create a nutrient-rich substrate for any seed, or add it directly as an effective mulch.
