Fertilizer Program - Grass Food

Recommended for everybody. This is the basic building block to have a healthy lawn.

The program includes the following:

  • Early Summer Fertilizer
  • Late Summer Fertilizer
  • Fall Fertilizer
  • Fall Lime
Organic Options Available.

Root Builder - Beneficial & Budget Friendly

An inexpensive option that improves your lawn’s root system and provides a quick spring “green up”.

Lawn Repairs

Small Repairs:  If your lawn is a little uneven or has had minimal or no damage we recommend top dressing and reseeding. Best if done after power raking; it involves the removal of damaged turf and levelling with new soil and then reseeding. New grass will grow and blend in 8-12 weeks. Touch-ups may be required.

New turf:  For those who have had major damage and want a new lawn without waiting for it to grow in. Old lawn is completely removed, new soil installed and new turf put down. The lawn looks great instantly and will take root in 2-4 weeks. Ask us about Tall Fescue.

Hydro-seeding:   A better, faster way to grow grass from seed. Now you can have a brand new lawn for much less $ than installing new turf. We are excited to offer this!

Hydro-seeding is done by mixing a large tank (500 gallon) of water with grass seed, fertilizer, and a paper mulch.  The mixture is then sprayed onto the prepared soil.  The paper mulch helps to insulate the seed and retains moisture so that the seed will germinate more quickly and evenly. It also prevents erosion and having the grass seed wash away while watering. A Hydro-seeded lawn will grow in and be ready for use in less time than it takes for a traditionally seeded lawn to grow and typically costs 40% to 50% less than the price of installing new turf.

 

If you are ready to put in a new lawn, we recommend using Tall Fescue grass.

Chafer Beetle Control

The European Chafer Beetle infestation is continuing to spread throughout all areas of Vancouver and has given rise to many lawns being destroyed. Animals and crows will dig up lawns to feed on the chafer larvae. The worst damage takes place between early fall and early spring months. To keep your lawn safe it must be treated during a narrow window of time in the summer. If there are lawns in your area that are infested, there is a very good chance that beetles will be laying eggs in your lawn this summer.

Treatment Options:   (subject to municipality bylaws)

 

  • estimated to be ~ 65% effective if applied properly
  • Natural/Biological Treatment – Microscopic roundworms are applied in late July. Nematodes infect chafer grubs with a bacteria which kills them.
  • Must be applied in the evening or on a cloudy day. Lawn requires thorough watering before and after treatment. We will provide you with a watering permit from the city to allow adequate watering.
  • As of July 2016 Nematodes are the only treatment option allowed in the City of Vancouver.

 

  • Please note that effective July 26, 2016, Merit is NO LONGER permitted for use in the City of Vancouver.
  • Estimated to be 95% effective
  • Merit is a low toxicity pesticide that can only be applied by licensed professionals.
  • Application is done from late June to early August. People and pets should stay off for 24 hrs and until the active ingredient has been watered in.
