Landscaping Tips and Services: Fall, Winter/Spring, and Summer.
Landscaping for residential applications includes mowing the lawn; weed trimming; planting flowers, shrubs, and trees; and trimming hedges and trees. Our service also includes fertilizing plants and grounds as well. We also create topiaries of animals from hedges and trees and mow golf courses at different heights to create the varying levels of grasses on the green and in the ruff.
Every Spring, your lawn seems dry and withered away by the low winter weather. We can help you to revitalize your lawn and provide the proper attention and care it needs to grow greener and fuller in the Spring, Summer, and lasting till Fall season.
A fundamental advance to dealing with your yard is to eliminate leaves, branches, and different pieces of plants that have fallen on the ground. Cleaning endlessly these plant parts will make it simpler to cut your grass without deterrent. It will likewise need a raking cover away from your grass.
Another incredible method to think about your yard is to circulate air through it. Air circulation includes making little openings in the dirt to lighten soil compaction. These openings increment the space between strong particles and permit air, water, and supplements to come to the grassroots and help the yard become more grounded and more advantageous. At the point when we circulate air through your lawn, guarantee that the dirt is soggy. We believe that circulating air through a day after watering is the best practice for your lawn.
Before we begin cutting your grass, we supplant the edges on the lawnmower in the event that they are looking dull and rusted. Dull edges won’t cut the grass appropriately yet will tear the grass unevenly, making it more defenseless against searing. We change the lawnmower cutting edges after checking the edges, it’s an ideal opportunity to cut the grass.
Toward the start of the spring season, it’s better to cut your grass to a stature of 1.5 inches. This permits more daylight, water, and supplements to come to the grassroots. We prefer not to keep the grass this short all Spring since it might invite weeds early. Following fourteen days, increment the tallness of the grass to 3.0 inches, or to whatever the stature is ideal for the grass type.
The lawn’s soil pH should ideally be at around 7.0 to ensure a healthy lawn and plant growth.
The BC Ministry of Agriculture says that “soil pH affects plants, soil organisms, and the availability of soil nutrients and metals for plant uptake.” (Soil-pH BC)Typically, in the Lower Mainland-Vancouver, the soil is naturally acidic, so some plants like blueberries can thrive in soil with a pH of 4.5-5.5. On the other hand, when it comes to the lawn, it prefers a more neutral pH of around 6.5 to 7.0. To neutralize the soil’s pH level, you want to apply a process called “liming” to the lawn.
Seeding is an important springtime task, especially if the lawn has thinned out, become dry, and the grass has browned in color. To nurse the lawn back to health, over-seeding the lawn as it is a quick way to help the lawn become greener, thicker, and lusher.
Our Spring Lawn Care Schedule is incomplete without mentioning fertilizers. Fertilizers are important for many reasons, including providing nutrients to your lawn, promoting lawn thickness, and making the grass stronger against potential weeds and diseases. We generally use organic fertilizers and try to keep the lawn as Eco-friendly as possible.
There are two main types of fertilizers you can use: granular and water-soluble. We prefer using granular fertilizers because they require less maintenance and can be applied fewer times in a year, as it takes grassroots longer to absorb this fertilizer than water-soluble fertilizers.
