While the general public refers to this as lawn care, soil could would probably be a better descriptor for what we do. The key to great lawn is great soil and the keys to great soil are nutrients, aeration and of course, water. Here is a basic annual schedule you can use to help you get the thick and lush lawn you want.

 

Early Fall Lawn Care Schedule

(September to mid October)

Once the fall has brought cooler temperatures, it’s the perfect time to start patching and thickening your lawn. Here we have put together a quick list of things you can do this fall to help you build a better lawn. If maintaining a lawn just isn’t your thing, call us at (604)992-6907 to schedule a free lawn care quote.

Rake or Blow the Leaves

Keep leaves and debris from building up by raking once every couple weeks until the deciduous trees have lost their leaves. This comes automatically when we come

Dethatch the Lawn

The best and easiest way to dethatch a lawn is by using a professional grade dethatcher.  This will remove most of the dead grass that prevents water from soaking to roots as well as provides the perfect environment for pest and lawn disease.

Seed the Lawn

Seeding your lawn will insure you always have new growth. Depending on the current state of your lawn we generally suggest seeding once during the spring and once during the fall. Ask a member of our team to seed your lawn next time we are in the neighborhood or call us at (604)992-6907 to book your next lawn seeding appointment.

Fertilize the Soil

During the fall you will want to use a fertilizer that is high in potash. We suggest using fertilizer that has a 6 Nitrogen, 3 Phosphate and 20 Potassium mix. The best time to fertilize is right before or during a heavy rain. Ask a member of our team to fertilize your lawn next time we are in the neighborhood or call us at (604)992-6907 to book your next fertilizer appointment.

What do the numbers on fertilizer bags mean?

(6-3-20) or (20-5-10) etc. These numbers represent the percentage of of nitrogen, phosphate, and potassium. These are the main ingredients or primary nutrients your lawn needs to be healthy. For example, you will want to use a 6 Nitrogen, 3 Phosphate and 20 Potassium during the fall.
