In order for your lawn to be healthy, green, thick and grow rapidly, its soil must be rich in essential nutrients.
It is common to fertilize the lawn as part of a treatment plan.
It is recommended to fertilize the lawn a few times per season.
TRYLAWN uses pesticide-free and chemical-free fertilizers.
- The nutrients released by chemical fertilizers do not stimulate the soil life as they are immediately absorbed by plants.
Chemical fertilizers can even be harmful to good micro-organisms present in the soil.
- Repeated use of chemical fertilizers can cause problems with soil salinity as they are made of water soluble salts.
- Chemical fertilizers increase the risk of pollution and burn plants roots.
Fiesta is a selective broadleaf herbicide. Formulated with iron and completely natural, it is safe for children and animals.
Fiesta was approved by Health Canada in 2010 as a safe alternative to chemical pesticides.
Fertilizer application is included in our lawn care plan.
A mycorrhiza is a symbiotic association between a fungus and the roots of a vascular plant (i.e. lawn). Myccorhizae stimulate leaf growth, especially in poor soil, as the fungus retains humidity longer. This enables better water and nutrients absorption by the roots.
TRYLAWN takes advantages of all the qualities of the mycorrhizae fungus and includes it in its lawn care treatment plan.
Liming helps to bring the soil pH level back to normal. Therefore, it reduces soil acidity, helps root development, increases fertilizer efficiency, promotes the growth of soil micro-organisms and decreases the spread of weeds.
Soil acidity (pH) affects the availability of nutrients. When the soil is too acidic or alkaline, plants can’t absorb all the nutrients they need, even if they are present in the soil. Improper pH levels also affect the structural stability of the soil, promote fungal disease and can decrease the population of beneficial organisms.
Most types of grass seed grow best in relatively neutral soil (pH of 6.5 to 7).
Elsewhere in Quebec, soil tends to be too acidic and needs to be amended with horticultural lime in spring or fall.
TRYLAWN can analyze your soil and tell you how much calcium it needs.
Lime treatment is included in our lawn treatment plan.
Weeds do not threaten the health of your lawn. If treated naturally, weeds infestation will be kept under control. A healthy and dense lawn will yield better resistance to new weed growth.
We offer manual dig outs (weed pulling) on demand. The ideal would be to pull the weeds out as soon as they appear, before the lawn is invaded. Ground that is too compact, too clayey, too acid or too alkaline supports weed growth, as do lawns mowed too short.
Trust TRYLAWN for a healthy lawn and see weeds disappear after only a few treatments.
To eliminate lawn and turf weeds, TRYLAWN uses Fiesta treatment, which controls up to 75% of broadleaf weeds in lawns, such as dandelions and clovers. Learn more about that turf weed killer herbicide treatment.
Aerating involves making holes in your lawn with a tool that removes small plugs of soil.
TRYLAWN recommends aerating your lawn at least once a year. You need to aerate when the ground becomes hard and compacted. Try to poke a pencil 10 to 15 cm into a moist lawn. If you meet much resistance, then your lawn needs to be aerated.
