Fixing The Polarity Of Your Lawn (Zero to Hero)

Is your lawn showing up as the wrong polarity when you test it? Does your lawn looks shotty with weeds everywhere, and Steve criticizing it from the sidewalk? If that damn neighbor won't leave you alone about the bamboo in the garden your going to use one day?
Then your lawn is probably the wrong polarity. That's okay though, because this is an easy fix to perform for any service professional, however may be tricky for an average homeowner to preform.

If you want a lawn that even Hank Hill would be proud of, here we have it. The simple trick, fix your polarity in the grass.

Before Polarization

After Polarization

Tools you'll need for this project

Projects can seem very intimidating at first, especially for someone who is unexperienced, but that's okay, we'll do our best to guide you through this tough process.
Here is a short list of some tools you'll need for this project.

  • Multi Meter
  • Garden Hose & Faucet
  • Fertilizer
  • Screw Driver (doesn't matter what kind)
  • Jumper Cables
  • Dave's smart ass comments while he watches you do the work and stands there like a dummy

With these tools, you'll be able to do the following:

The first step is, take your multi meter to your lawn. Stick the probes into the dirt, don't be afraid to just shove it in there ;).
If your multi meter is showing anything other than 420.00, then your lawn is not polarized correctly, and is actively being damaged from the roots up.
To rectify this error in your lawn, you can do a few different things, but I'll tell you the quickest and most effective way you can do it.

First step is to locate the highest point in your yard. From there, take your screw driver and poke a shit load of holes all over the place throughout the lawn. This will help aeriate it and allow for better root health.
The second step is, take your jumper cables from your car battery and attach them to the tallest grass blades in your lawn, or if you have any weeds, they make an even better conductor. This will jump the grass, and help it give the extra boost it needs to germinate into the ground and grow better.

While the jumpers are still hooked into the strongest conductor from your vehicles battery, take your fertilizer (I recommend Miloganite), and distribute it evenly. After distributed, take your hose, and water the entire lawn thoroughly. This is an important step, make sure to do it while your jumpers ARE STILL ON THE GRASS.

From there, you can re-check the polarity with your multi meter. There are different types of grass, some may give you a voltage reading of 420.69, and that is the correct reading you want to see. Anything else, you need to repeat the entire process again.

Thank you for reading, if you have anymore suggestions for grass, feel free to drop it in the comments.
