Aerating & Fertilizing
Aerating and fertilizing can be very important for the health of a lawn, especially after a long winter or a dry summer.
Aeration helps the lawn absorb water and other nutrients more easily, while fertilizer gives it the energy to grow lush and green. Make sure that your lawn is in top condition with expert horticultural care from our team.

Common Lawn Care Questions
How often should my lawn be cut?
The widely-accepted advice is to never cut the grass under 2 inches of height. The time of year, weather, and type of grass are the main things that affect the growth of your grass, so it’s important to keep these things in mind when scheduling your lawn maintenance.
We generally recommend weekly mowing for your lawn throughout the summer. Our experienced team will properly assess your land and grass type to ensure our lawn cares services are custom suited to the needs of your property.
How often should I water my lawn?
If you have a grass that is suited to your region, watering should only be required during periods of drought. If your lawn is in need of water, you will notice the blades of grass have folded in half in attempt to save water.
If your lawn is showing signs of dehydration, you should water it heavily. However, Guelph has Water level use restrictions during the summer months and you will need to check those before going ahead with lawn watering. For best results, use a sprinkler and let it soak the affected area for approximately 20 minutes. You should do this twice a week, and aim to do it before 9am. This allows any extra water to evaporate, and also prevents the growth of mold and fungus overnight. Watering in the hot sun can cause your grass to burn. Most lawns will bounce back in the Fall or after the drought is over. Overseeding in the spring will help fill in any dead patches that result.
What is overseeding?
Overseeding is a method of maintaining an existing lawn by casting seed over the top of it. We begin by spreading a ½ inch of top dressing soil over the lawn, then we evenly spread grass seed over the top.
Overseeding helps thicken grass and prevent the growth of weeds. The nutrients from the top dress work as a fertilizer and works its way down into the soil below to benefit the roots. During this stage, it’s important that the seeds are kept moist. A strict watering schedule must be followed, with daily watering required on hot and dry days.
Should I aerate my lawn?
Yes! Aeration is extremely important for a healthy lawn. It is even more important if your lawn is getting compact due to being in a high traffic area.
The process of aeration removes small plugs from your lawn, creating holes that allow water, air, and fertilizer down to the root level.This produces stronger roots, reduces disease and thatch build-up, and prevents water runoff. Plugs should be left on the lawn to break down and return into the soil.
