Lawn and effort to improve soil

We did try hard to improve the look of our lawn at Seri Iskandar home. Organic fertiliser, biomass waste of palm oil, cow dungs were used every time we spent weekends there. The lawn look alright for the moment, helped by the regular rainfall at the tail end of monsoon season. For the next two months rainfall will be a lot less, the grasses have to handle themselves. We would come back once or twice every month.

The improved lawn.

our own nitrogen fixer: little mung beans or kacang hijau.

I am trying to see the impact of mung beans on soil health, since they are nitrogen fixers. 13 leucaena (petai belalang) seedlings are growing steadily and they too are nitrogen fixers. We will be back on 19 - 22nd of february to see the progress.

  1. That's interesting! I always do plant rotation on my raised bed or pot. I grow legume as nitrogen fixer also as vegetable sources.On my front garden that full of perennial, I grow butterfly peas as Nitrogen fixer.

  2. That's great ideas! Free and shall give good outcome! Hope your grass survive the hot sun!
