An important message for our all of our clients: Unlike many companies, we have decided not to charge a gas surcharge due to rising prices.  In order to keep costs down, and not increase our service prices more than necessary, we must route our services by postal code for efficiency. We appreciate your understanding.

SPRING FERTILIZERThe spring fertilizer applications are well underway.  There were slight delays due to the snow that we recently received but our crews are still on track. Crews are working extra hours to make sure that our clients are serviced in a timely manner.    

WEED CONTROL:  Weeds have not yet begun to germinate in lawns but soon, dandelions will emerge.  They are typically the first spring weed to pop.  The soil temperatures are still too cool for many ‘other’ lawn weeds.  Current Ontario legislation only allows products registered to target weeds once they have emerged.  There are no licensed control products that will prevent weeds from germinating. 

We will begin applying the first Fiesta applications around the second week of May (weather permitting).  We will then return in late spring to do the second Fiesta weed control to target the late germinating and remaining controllable weeds.

BENEFICIAL SERVICES:  It is the optimal time to seed and aerate lawns. Core aeration is the single most important thing that you can do to create a healthy, thick, and robust lawn.  Seeding any thin or damaged areas may also be needed.  Upgrade your core aeration to add seed or talk to us about our ‘3-in-1 seed and feed’ service that helps to thicken the lawn and rejuvenate the turf.

If the lawn needs more of a renovation, our technicians will recommend a Slit Seeding service.  This will allow the seeds to be 'slit' or deposited directly into the soil for necessary seed-soil contact.  

To get the best looking lawn:  Review our proper mowing tips and watering tips

MOSQUITO:  Our mosquito control services will start once the foliage is out on the trees/shrubs (beginning mid-late May weather permitting). We will then return in approximately 14 days for the second application, to ensure a good barrier is in place once more foliage emerges. For more information, visit us at: mosquito.buzz or call or text 613-231-2899 (buzz).
