Frequently Asked Questions

Here are a few frequently asked questions about lawn care in Calgary:

Q. How frequently should I water my lawn?

A. Watering your lawn at regular intervals is essential to keep it healthy. The frequency will depend on several factors, including the type of grass, weather conditions, and soil quality. Typically, watering your lawn deeply once a week is sufficient, but you may need to increase the frequency during hot and dry spells. However, avoid over-watering your lawn, as it can lead to issues like soil erosion and fungus growth.

Q. What measures should I take to prevent the growth of weeds on my lawn?

Q. How can I tell if my lawn is unhealthy?

A. Here are a few signs to look out for to detect if your lawn is unhealthy: ⦁ There are yellow or brown patches in the grass. ⦁ The growth of the grass is thin or patchy. ⦁ There is a fungus or other disease present on the grass. ⦁ The drainage is poor, or there is standing water on the lawn. ⦁ Thin grass can often be identified by weeds growing in lawns.

Q. How frequently should I mow my lawn in Calgary?

A. The frequency of mowing your lawn in Calgary depends on the growth rate of the grass and the length you want to maintain. Generally, it's recommended to mow your lawn when the grass reaches a height of about 3 inches and to remove no more than one-third of the grass blade at a time. This helps to promote healthy and appealing grass.

Q. When is the best time to fertilize my lawn?

A. The ideal timing for fertilizing a lawn in Calgary will vary according to the grass type. If your lawn features cool-season grasses like fescue and bluegrass, it is recommended to apply fertilizer during spring and fall. If your lawn has warm-season grasses like Bermuda and Zoysia, it is advisable to fertilize in late spring or early summer. Following the appropriate fertilization schedule based on grass type can promote optimal growth and maintain the health of your lawn.

A. Adopting a few simple practices can effectively prevent weeds from taking over your lawn in Calgary. Mowing your grass regularly, using a pre-emergent herbicide, and keeping your lawn healthy by following proper watering and fertilization practices can all help discourage weed growth. If weeds do appear, pulling them out by hand or applying a weed-and-feed solution can help to prevent them from spreading.
