In Calgary, lawn care is a must. The cold winters and hot, dry summers are hard on grass, and they often leaves lawns looking more dead and yellow than welcoming and lush. A healthy lawn is a great first impression for guests visiting your home. A healthy lawn encourages you and your family to spend time outside and enjoy your space. A healthy lawn also has a lot of curb appeal if it comes time to sell. Finally, a healthy lawn is just a lot easier to take care of. Here’s why:
Fewer Weeds. The gardening centers around the city are full of weed and feed concoctions that are designed to kill weeds and help your lawn to flourish. However, a lawn that is well fertilized and healthy will naturally be able to out-compete the weeds. That’s because a thick lawn will have deeper roots that can easily suck up nutrients and water. Fertilizing in spring is one of the easiest ways to keep your lawn looking great without much extra work.
Less Muddy Mess. Another side effect of those long healthy roots is that you’ll find your lawn has fewer puddles. The grass will help prevent erosion, suck up any extra water, and generally be better equipped to keep everything looking great. A well fertilized lawn will also be safer from fungi growth and be able to slowly spread to any bare patches that have developed.
While your lawn will benefit from being fed in summer and fall, spring is one of the most important feedings ensure great looking grass for the entire season.
