Brown Lawn? We Can Help!

Robert Bourne, Nutri-Lawn Vancouver

Summer is here! It’s time to be outside, out on the patio, out in the yard, hopefully on your green lush lawn! Except, maybe your lawn is already showing signs of stress and turning a bit brown? We expect a lot from our lawns regardless of the weather. The lawn care experts at Nutri-Lawn Vancouver can help.

The cool season grasses popular in Canada (fescue, rye, bluegrass, etc.) thrive in cooler, wet temperatures – more like we see in spring and fall. These grass types have a natural defense against drought though – they go dormant in the hot weather. Too many dormant/active cycles though and your grass will really suffer. Here are some tips to help you keep your lawn green this summer.

Simple Solutions To Get Rid Of Moss

Robert Bourne, Nutri-Lawn Vancouver

While some enjoy moss so much that they create entire Japanese-style gardens with it, other homeowners simply want to get rid of the moss in their lawn permanently. If you fall into the second group, getting rid of the moss in your lawn may require some detective work to discover the root issues. There’s no point wasting time and energy on temporary solutions, because the moss will return and you’ll have to start all over. Frustrating!

3 Reasons You Might Have Moss In Your Lawn

Don McQueen, Nutri-Lawn Burlington

When there’s a bad smell in your house, spraying air freshener only masks the problem. You have to find the source of the stink and get rid of it before you can expect the bad smell to leave for good. Some homeowners tackle a lawn problem with air freshener instead of finding the source and getting to the root of the problem. Moss is no different.

Another way to think about this is not how do I get rid of the moss, but how do I make my lawn healthier. A healthy lawn will crowd out weeds and other problems like moss, so create conditions that favour the grass instead of the problem. This solution may take more time, but the return will be a healthier lawn that requires less maintenance for years to come.

Thom Bourne, Nutri-Lawn Ottawa

Moss is one of those lawn care problems that require some detective work to discover the cause of the issue. Only once the cause of the problem is identified and dealt with can the moss be removed permanently. Spending time and money on quick solutions that only deal with temporarily removing the moss is a waste.

Mushrooms can be annoying if you take pride in your lawn's appearance, but they're perfectly harmless to your grass. Mushroom spores are everywhere, but they most often appear after prolonged rain or heavy watering. Decomposition of buried organic matter such as pieces of wood, dead roots, or tree stumps can result in mushroom growth in the turf above.

Plants That Repel Mosquitoes

Robert Bourne, Nutri-Lawn Vancouver

Spring brings wet, warm weather – and unfortunately, mosquitoes. More than pesky and annoying, controlling mosquitoes is no longer a nice-to-have but a health and safety concern with the rise of West Nile virus and potentially Zika virus.

Homeowners are told not to keep standing water in their yards, but once you’ve covered the rain barrels and emptied the bird baths, what else can you do? The experts at Nutri-Lawn Vancouver compiled this list of plants that will naturally repel mosquitoes. Scatter these plants around your patio, garden, or yard or plant them in containers that are easy to move.
