Calgary Spring Clean Up
Our Calgary spring clean ups include: Power Raking, Aeration, spring fertilizer, first cut & trim, a blowout of all flower beds and debris removal! We start our spring clean ups off by Power Raking your lawn to remove the thatch layer that prevents your lawn from receiving all the nutrients it needs to stay healthy and green. (Thatch essentially forms a barrier between the soil and the nutrients provided by nature - if left unchecked thatch layers will build and deprive your lawn of its essential nutrients and lead to widespread thinning and patches in your lawn). We then remove all of that thatch off site and give your lawn its first mowing of the season to help promote growth. Once that is complete we run our Core Aerator on your lawn, pulling out a nice even layer of aeration plugs which will help the root structure of your lawn grow thicker and deeper (thicker, healthier lawns, among other things, are a natural preventative to weed growth). To finish it all off we lay down a specialized spring fertilizer to provide your lawn with the nutrients it needs to have a strong and productive start to the year, then we blow all excess debris off of your walkways, driveways, flower beds and more (we also haul away all of the debris at no extra cost)! Spring clean ups are highly recommended and should be performed each year to ensure that your lawn stays thick, healthy and green!

If spring is just around the corner, don't break out the lawn chairs just yet! It is best to stay off the grass while the lawn thaws out in the early spring to prevent damage to the grass. Once the snow has melted and the ground has thawed out you're in the clear!
Rain water gauges can help you save on watering costs! By tracking the amount of water your lawn receives each week you can a) avoid watering when it is not necessary and b) insure that your lawn is always receiving the proper 1-1.5" of water it needs each week. Just be sure to dump out the gauge at the end of each week!
Don't stop watering your lawn! It is a common misconception that once fall hits it is time to retire the sprinkler. Your lawn needs water to keep it healthy until the ground freezes. We typically recommend keeping up with the watering until the daily low temperature starts going below 0. If you have an underground sprinkler system remember to get it blown-out before the ground finishes freezing!
