Organic matter is essential to good plant development.  The difference between a Top soil and sub soil is organic matter. Organic matter in soil allows air water and nutrients to enter the root zone of the plants we are growing and holds it there for later consumption by the plant. Topsoil is only topsoil because of years of organic matter residues left behind by the plants growing in it. In an urban environment we tend to clean up this organic residue in the form of raking leaves and bagging our grass clippings. If we fail to replenish organic matter as it breaks down then the quality of our soils is going to decrease as a result. Organic fertilizers and dressing replenish this organic matter as it breaks down and feeds your plants at the same time.

We offer several products that we can spread on your lawn to add organic matter.

Over seeding & Slit Seeding

Slit over seeding is also a great way to introduce new cultivars of rye and fescue grass with endophytes properties to combat the damage caused by leaf-feeding insects. Over seeding is a method of thickening a lawn that has become thin or damaged by insects, diseases, weeds, drought, excessive traffic or other types of damage.


Aeration / Lawn Core Aerating

Lawn aeration allows more oxygen and nutrients to reach the roots, helps old grasses decompose faster, improves root structure and increases your lawns resistance to drought. Aerating is the process of removing small plugs of soil and thatch from your lawn to encourage new root growth. The decomposition process can be speed up by mowing your lawn more frequently once the cores have dried out.


Weed Control

The government agency that regulates herbicides is very clear that any product that is used to kill weeds needs to be registered under the Pest Control Products Act. A dense stand of turf can compete successfully with weed seedlings for light and nutrients thereby minimizing weeds within your lawn. Pre- emergent grassy weed control – applied before weed seeds germinate applied in the spring or late summer as needed.


Lawn Pest Control

Did you know that certain varieties of turf grass such as Fiesta III Perennial Ryegrass contain a fungus called an 'endophyte' which gives the plant a natural resistance to sucking insects such as chinch bug. If your lawn also display signs of being torn up, this is usually a grub problem and the result of nocturnal animals such as skunks and raccoons feeding on the grubs.
