Everything About Lawn Care in Markham
Why do I have dead patches of grass?
Dead patches rarely happen because of an isolated problem. Usually, your lawn suffers from a combination of disease, heat, animal digging, pests, dog urine and feces, or drought. Dead patches are not the end of the world, though.
We clear unwanted thatch that can suffocate your grass, before loosening the top five centimeters of soil. Our lawn maintenance crew scatters grass seed over the upturned soil and lightly tamps the surface to establish contact. After we apply fertilizer, we add mulch and water.
How often should I water my lawn?
Your lawn needs 2.5 to 4.5 centimeters of water per week, even in the winter. If your yard doesn’t receive enough moisture, it can suffer from stress, which causes long-term damage. You can monitor your lawn’s weekly water levels with a rain gauge, which you insert into the ground to produce a reading.
Water your lawn two to three times a week for the best results. We recommend turning on the sprinklers or garden hose in the morning when the Markham climate is coolest. You may have to water your lawn more frequently during peak summer months or a drought.
What is thatch, and how does it affect grass?
Thatch is a mixture of organic materials, typically old grass clippings and decomposing leaves. The layer sits above your grass’s root system where it should break down over time. If you do not have a healthy lawn or regular lawn care service, thatch can suffocate your grass.
Thatch can be problematic because it creates a barrier between your grass and nutrients. That impermeable layer means your lawn can’t get the water, fertilizer, and sunshine it needs to grow. Specialists can remove unwanted thatch to restore your property to its healthiest form.
What are some ways to get rid of pests?
Even the most ardent lawn care can’t entirely stop different pests from attacking your property. Keep an eye peeled for changes to your lawn and be ready with a solution. Here are a couple of services to treat common pests:
- Moles – castor oil
- Grubs – nematodes or pest control products
- June bugs or chinch bugs – insecticide
- Mole crickets – reduce lawn moisture
What’s the best way to remove weeds from my lawn?
The most effective method for weed control also happens to be the most time intensive. It involves using a trowel or narrow blade to uproot weeds one by one. After you remove them, you should place compost in the hole and sprinkle on grass seed and water.
Herbicides offer a less demanding alternative of weed control. Insert your herbicide of choice into a dial sprayer and apply it to the afflicted areas. Be cautious with your spraying, and first clear your lawn of any furniture, tools, or toys.
