Getting Your Lawn Ready for Spring

Getting Your Lawn Ready for Spring

Spring is just around the corner, now is the time to start planning your lawn care for the upcoming season. The heavy snowfalls we’ve experienced this winter have left a lot of piled up snow on the lawns. Snow mould can occur. An indication of snow mould is a web like substance on the surface of the lawn once the snow has melted. A light hand raking in these areas is recommended to reduce the risk of the lawn dying out in these areas. As the snow melts it’s important to make sure a layer of ice is not accumulating in areas as this can cause the lawn to die underneath. It is important in the spring to remove the […]

Fall lawn care

Fall lawn care

Lawn Fertilizer is very important in the fall as this is when much of the root development takes place.  If you’re not already on one of our Fertilizer and Weed Control Programs we can do a Fall Fertilizer Application which will help with the root development.  Any unused nutrients are stored over winter for a quick green up in the spring. ​If you haven’t already had a lawn AERATION, fall is an excellent time to do this.  Aeration enables fertilizer applied in the fall to penetrate and allows winter moisture to get deep into the root area. Be sure to clean the lawn surface in the fall.  Any debris or leaves left on the lawn which will be covered in […]

Spring lawn care

Spring Lawn Care in Calgary is especially important since we can experience long snowy winters which leave your lawn vulnerable to spring lawn diseases such as “Snow Mould” (which is essentially patches of dying or dead grass).  Living in Calgary comes with unpredictable snowfall even in spring.  Piles of snow can create problems for your lawn as the temperature rises.  If parts of your lawn remain buried under snowdrifts or piles from shoveling, those parts of your lawn will be especially vulnerable to developing spring lawn diseases.  To help prevent spring lawn care problems, spread snow evenly to help speed melting. ​Spring Lawn Maintenance should begin with Power Raking your lawn to remove excess dead grass.  If this dead grass […]

Watering your lawn

Watering your lawn

Watering Your Lawn In Calgary No Lawn Maintenance schedule is complete without watering. Watering you lawn is essential to keeping your lawn healthy, lush and a beautiful green. Your lawn requires a “heavy” watering once or twice a week depending on weather, soil conditions and lawn slope. Leave your sprinkler on for 30-60 minute intervals for each area, this should equal approximately 1 inch of water. Frequent light waterings do not penetrate the soil deep enough to keep the roots satisfied. When this happens, the roots stay at the surface and dry out very quickly causing the lawn to yellow. The amount of watering required will vary depending on the outdoor temperature and whether supplemented by rain. A lawn care […]

Calgary Lawn Mowing

Calgary Lawn Mowing

At the beginning of each season before you start mowing your lawn, check that the mower blades are sharp. This will prevent shredding the ends of the grass blades which will then dry out and give your lawn a yellowish appearance. When lawn mowing in the spring, our FIRST mowing should be a short mowing. Lower your mower blade to 1 1/2 inch which will help to remove more of the dead grass from the previous year. We recommend a power raking in the spring as an alternative to this. Power Raking will deep clean out excess thatch and our service includes a mowing after to vacuum up excess clippings and groom the lawn. ​ After the first mowing, raise […]
