What Nutri-Lawn Service Group Clients Should Expect In August

Featured Image

August is the start of fall for landscaping.

August is the beginning of fall in landscaping.

Thank you for being a Nutri-Lawn service group client. Only clients such as you who have signed or recorded their authorization will receive services.

As a locally owned business we are excited to be in our 32nd season and want to let you know what to expect this month as well as keep you updated on our additional services that add value and enjoyment to your home and business. We are committed to you and our employees to offer a covid ‘contactless’ service. All employees are continually trained on the latest covid safety protocols.

To view the Nutri-Lawn service group tip sheets, click the links:

  • Grub Control information: GrubGONE

  • Seasonal Calendar click: Calendar

  • Watering & Mowing recommendations: Tips

  • Fiesta Weed Identification Sheet (Controllable vs Non-Controllable Weeds): Weed ID Sheet

  • Tick control: Ticks

Lawn Care:  

Although the calendar says differently, August is the beginning of fall in the landscape business. The evening temperatures are cooling to low-mid teens, the dews have returned, and the daytime temperatures are generally low 20C. These are perfect growing conditions.

WEEDS: The return of cooler temperatures creates excellent growing conditions for weeds. We are currently applying the 3rd weed control applications. Some weeds are more difficult to control and may need a re-treatment so please let us know. We will be happy to return. To identify the uncontrollable or hard to control weeds, such as crabgrass, creeping charlie, etc., see our weed id sheet.  

CHINCH BUGS – Chinch bugs are now developing into adults and will soon stop feeding on your lawns. Instead, they will be seeking areas to overwinter, such as in gardens, under bushes, and even under the flowerpots. You still have until mid-August to schedule your BioTitan® application if you still see damage occurring.

GRUBS: Grubs have been silently eating the roots of lawns all across the city. Our technicians are seeing damaged lawns that appear to be ripped up by animals or birds and/or brown areas developing, particularly around trees.  GrubGONE!® is a biological grub control that is applied in a granular form using a broadcast spreader during the months of June to early September. We are in the last month of being able to apply grub control for the season. If you suspect that you have a grub issue, please let us know and we will be happy to help. Click for more information about grubs: Grub info.    

To shop for these or any other services, go to our Online Store, call us at 613-739-3399 or email ottawa@nutrilawn.com.

MOWING and WATERING:   To get the best looking lawn, keep your lawn at 2.5 - 3" and never cut more than 1/3 of the leaf blade. We ask you to water 1 inch, once a week, or as needed in dry or drought conditions.

Sprinkler Solutions:

SERVICE AND INSTALLATION: Our Irrigation team is out in full force installing residential and commercial systems. If you have considered having a system installed next spring, get the jump on the others and contact Martina and her team any time at 613-317-2332 or, visit us at SprinklerSolutions.com. With a small deposit, you can reserve your spot for early next spring before the summer heat returns.


The cooler, wet temperatures have been wonderful for the increase in mosquito populations. They are buzzing backyard parties everywhere.

SPECIAL EVENTS: Are you planning a wedding, hosting a party, or special outdoor event? Don't risk uninvited guests spoiling your big day! Our proven solution for mosquito control ensures a mosquito free environment for you and all your guests. Jay and his team will schedule two timely mosquito treatments before the day to ensure you are protected, so your event is a success.

For more information, visit us at: mosquito.buzz or call or text 613-231-2899 (buzz).

Celebration Time, Come On! 🎵

Well, after 70 weeks of the Covid pandemic, we were finally able to celebrate our fantastic Nutri-Lawn Service Group team. The one regret that the Management Team has had through the whole pandemic was that we could not say a proper ‘thank you’ to the wonderful group of people that we have who work so hard to bring amazing service to our clients. 

Very special hats off to our Lawn Care, Sprinkler Solutions, Christmas Décor, GLO Outdoor Lighting, and Mosquito.Buzz people who worked SAFELY and tirelessly these many months. We were to get together with old friends and meet new friends, share a wonderful meal, have some laughs, and hand out prizes. 

We applaud you.

A special thanks to our food providers: Pizza All’Antica, Lou Fast Food, and Cool Delights.
