What Does My Lawn Need Part 4: Weeds

3 Min

Welcome to part 4 of our “What does my lawn Need” series. Today, let’s chat about the one thing that most lawns battle with - Weeds! 

Here at Nutri-Lawn Vancouver, we hear from new clients all the time about this battle. They complain that as soon as they have removed the weeds in their lawns either by use of a product off the shelf, or pulling them out of the lawn that they always come back. “STOP the madness!” they cry!  Well, I am happy to tell you that your solution has arrived!

What Does My Lawn Need? Part 1

3 Min

Life here in the Lower Mainland can get pretty hectic - and expensive - which keeps us all on the go most of the time. Usually the only time we have to even consider our lawns happens to fall on the trusted weekend, a time we spend with our Family, Friends and all those other chores that always seem to pile up.

Why Choose Nutri-Lawn?

5 Min

In 2019, our lives have been so packed with needs that we have left little time for enjoyment.  Going to work, school for you or the kids, spending time with friends and family, school activities, social activities, grocery shopping, trips for work or pleasure, pets, exercise, holidays, health needs...and the list can go on and on.

Things like taking care of the house have become automatic or forgotten. Until the one day that you walk out of the door during your morning ritual to work (or school) and realize in a brief moment that the windows need to be washed, or the siding cleaned, or perhaps the lawn needs some TLC, but when and who has the time? You get into your car, start the engine and as the radio comes to life and the little voices inside informs you of your daily commute or the weather or even a great song, that thought of the lawn leaves the mind.

What Is Calcitic Lime?

4 Min

 

Before we get into the what, let’s begin our story with a picture. You walk out of your home early one May morning stretching your legs and grabbing the morning paper (or taking the dog for a walk in case you are more of a digital reader, maybe it’s your morning walk that beckons you outside, but you are at your front door). The sun has just started to come through the trees and is hitting your face. The gentle warm breeze carries the sound of birds chirping, creating a melody that is right out of Merrie Melodies.

As you take that first step outside, you look to your lawn. The lawn you just spent that weekend last month spraying weeds and raking moss out. The lawn that cost you all that money. The one that caught your sweat - now has weeds, again!

Beware This Greater Vancouver Lawn Pest

3 Min

A major lawn pest in the Greater Vancouver area is the European Crane Fly, or more accurately – their larvae called leatherjackets. A native of Eurasia, the European Crane Fly will lay between 200 and 500 eggs every fall. Yikes! And the larvae that hatch are hungry!

What Do They Look Like?

These pests are harmless as adults. They look like gangly mosquitoes but they don’t bite or sting and are pretty terrible at flying. You’ll find them congregating on the sides of houses, barns, fences, window and door screens, etc. It’s their larvae, that look like grey or greenish maggots, that cause all the trouble. The larvae grow to 1.5 to 2 inches long and taper at both ends.
