Lime & Fertilizer Programs
Lawns require different nutrients depending on the time of year. For best results, a lawn should be fertilized about every 6-8 weeks. It takes just a few minutes of fertilizing to give your grass the nutrients it needs to be green and lush all season. Lawns should be fertilized in every season except winter. Here is how Weatherbee's Home & Garden approaches fertilization:
We highly recommend a soil test! Without a soil test, fertilizers are applied at a standard application rate. Knowing the soil composition will provide you with the knowledge to apply the proper nutrients to your lawn.
Soil is tested for pH, LR, OM, P2O5, K2O, Ca, Mg, Na, S, Fe, Mn, Cu, Zn, Al, B, CEC, Base Sa.
We offer lawn fertilzation services for:
- Commercial, Corporate offices
- Residential, Home-Owner Association (HOA) developments
- Retail stores
- Industrial properties
- Use granules or liquid, available
After the cold winter months, you want to get your lawn off to a healthy start. Spring fertilization and feeding concentrates on strengthening the roots, getting the lawn ready for the upcoming growing season, and getting it ready to deal with heat.
Once you have your lawn off to a good start, it can maintain healthy growth and color with a fertilizer treatment. Damaging insects and grubs should also be dealt with throughout the summer. Strong, healthy grass is less likely to burn and yellow should drought conditions arise. Proper care means long-term health for your lawn.
In Nova Scotia, fall is the best growing time for lawns. A good fall feeding and fertilization helps your lawn recover from summer stresses and builds strong roots, preparing the lawn for winter and a healthier lawn next year.
Spring & Fall Clean up
Most properties accumulate debris (broken branches, leaves or dead plant material) over the winter, and need a spring cleanup to get them ready for the season. Our spring cleanups can also include seasonal pruning, garden edging and a lawn tune-up.
The to do list
- Clean up sticks & debris from the winter
- Remove leaves
- Lightly rake with fan rake to thatch
Falling leaves covering lawns, flower beds, driveways and sidewalks can cause issues and should be cleaned up to get ready for winter. We use blowers and rakes to quickly clean your property of fallen leaves, bagging them for removal and disposal.
The to do list
- Leaf collection & bagging
- Dead branches & debris
- Removal & disposal
Identify & Treat
There are many insect pests that will attack your lawn and potentially cause significant harm if you aren’t prepared. If you suspect you may have any uninvited guests damaging your lawn, identification is the key! Once the problem has been identified Weatherbee's Home & Garden can provide the solution.
Common Lawn Pests
- Armyworms and cutworms
- Chinch bugs
- Sod webworm
- White grubs
Lawn Repair & Restoration
One of the biggest worries for a lawn lover is a patchy and thinning lawn, a problem that can happen anywhere a lawn is grown.
- Worn or compacted areas due to excessive use
- Thin or depleted grass cover
- Heavily Shaded Areas
- Areas that suffer premature dryings
- Damage from tree roots
- Urine damage from pets
Lawn renovation consists of the introduction of new grass seed into the whole lawn. Consider renovation of the whole lawn rather than repair when more than 25% of the lawn is suffering.
Reasons for Restoration
- Excessive thatch layer
- Lawn no longer responds to fertilizer treatments
- The lawn is prone to diseases
- Lawn suffers from heavy weed grass infestation
- Soil problems
