- 1. Do you offer weekly lawn cutting?13.09.15More
We do cut a few lawns, but only very selectively in Mineola and Port Credit. We do not actively look for new customers but may consider a client who would want all their seasonal services with us, ie. spring/fall cleanup, lawn fertilizing, hedge and shrub trimming, overseeding, mulching, gardening and snow removal. We would not take on any new customer just for their lawn cutting.
- 2. Do you work outside your area?23.09.15More
Unfortunately we are very busy working in our close geographic area and would not be able to properly service customers further away. We have been very strict from the beginning with our service boundaries and it has served us and our customers well.
- 3. Do you provide lawn weed killing?29.09.15More
It is very difficult to kill most weeds with what is available on the market to spray. A few people have lawns with lots of weeds and unfortunately we cannot help them. We are able to only help control a few types of weeds. So if you want us to go by and kill all your weeds, the answer is no, I am very sorry.

- 1. How to water a new tree or shrub?15.05.16More
One you have planted your tree or shrub, water it well once a week remembering the water has to get to the bottom of the root ball you just planted.
Do not water it too much during normal weather conditions.
Watering only the surface of the plant will encourage plants to develop surface roots, which will weaken the shrub.
Take your time watering them to ensure the water is being absorbed by the plant and the water is not running off to the sides.
Water in the morning to allow leaves to dry because Wet leaves and cool temperatures may promote a plant disease.
- 2. When to cut a maple tree branch?29.09.15More
Wait until the tree has leafs on it. Not before or the sap will run out the severed branch and make a big mess. Remember that's how maple syrup comes out of a maple tree in the late winter.
- 1. Why is my lawn still brown in early spring07.05.16More
If you have been looking at everyone's green lawn in the spring and your lawn is still brown and looking not too healthy, it is possibly new Kentucky Blue Grass sodding. Kentucky Blue Grass needs warm temperature to perk up and look nice and green. Most sod that is available and laid is Kentucky Blue Grass unfortunately.
So to remedy this issue simply start overseeding with Fescue lawn seed. It is also called shade grass or Eco grass, you will eventually get a better lawn mixture of grass seed for our temperatures and your lawn will look as green as everyone's else in April and May.
- 2. How should we water new sodding?30.09.15More
Water your new sod daily for the first 2-3 weeks depending on the weather. Then water your sodding every 2 days for another 2-3 weeks. Deep root watering is required. Pull up a corner of a roll of sod and inspect it to see if it the water has penetrated the sod. To ensure it has received enough water, you can also put your foot down and hear and feel if it is squishy. Yes, squishy, squishy is good. Most people do not water it enough and this is the reason most lawns do not take. The newly severed roots have to be kept very moist.
- 3. What is deep root watering ?25.09.15More
If you want strong grass roots that will grow more grass blades you need to be watering your lawn for a long time once or twice a week only. Not short spurts every day. Daily watering will likely lead to moss growing in areas that get a lot of shade. The ground never gets a chance to dry out. With daily watering your grass roots will stay short, because they do not need to grown deep to search for water.
