To create natural, easy to care landscapes

A well manicured lawn is hard work that takes years to achieve, here are some tips to help so we provide you with steps to a Naturally Healthy Lawn


Aerate compacted soil in the Spring and.or Fall to improve root health.


Spread good quality topsoil or compost on top of your lawn to improve soil condition. The best top-dressing is ablend that includes a combination of compost and peat moss with the soil.


Overseeding is adding grass seeds to your lawn to make it thicker. Early fall is the best time to overseed.


Fertilize naturally by applying a slow-release organic fertilizer in the spring and/or fall to create a stronger, pest-resistant lawn. Lawn clippings are an excelent source of natural fertilizer.


Spot check your lawn early for signs of weed or insect infestation before it becomes a problem. Weeds usually mean your lawn is stressed and changes in maintenance practices can fix the problem. Check for signs of European Chafer grub problem in the winter and spring so treatment can effectively be applied in the summer.


Do not overwater! Ovewatering can promote lawn disease and leach nutrinets from the soil. Most lawns only need about 2.5 cm of water a week, whoch can easily be applied by sprinkling once a week. Springkling early in the morning is best because less water is lost to evaporation.


Mow high! Keep mower blade 2-3" high. Leave clippings on the lawn from time to time as they are excellent source of natural fertilizer.
