Mowing regularly the lawn helps keep your lawn healthy and eliminate weeds and some of the pests from the grass at the same time. Cutting your lawn too short creates an environment for both weed and disease infestation. It also causes the lawn to lose moisture much quicker.
We do perfectly straight, clean edges and precise trimming for all those spots a lawn mower can’t reach.
We have three lawn mowing service packages that all include mowing lawn, line trimming, sidewalk edging, blowing driveway and grass clippings which are be mulched or caught to a bag. The caught clippings will throw into your green waste bin.
Applying fertilizer 2 ~4 times a year that supplies your lawn with nutrients needed for plant growth.
We use a balanced 1:1 N & K fertilizer with controlled release nitrogen designed for use on golf course fairways and sports fields and lawn.
60% controlled release nitrogen gradually releases nitrogen to turfgrass up to 14-16 weeks. Use of controlled release nitrogen results in minimal surge growth and prolong color response.
Balanced potassium level assists turf in summer heat tolerance, winter cold tolerance plus disease resistance. A full analysis fertilizer that can be used from late spring through to fall.
Analysis: 23-3-23+3S+0.14Fe+micros (60%MU)
Your lawn will grow best with a soil pH of 6.0 to 7.0. Apply lime to increase soil pH in Spring or Fall.
Lime will not kill moss; it allows the grass to grow better, and healthy vigorous turf will out compete moss growth.
Spreading grass seed on your lawn regularly will ensure that it remains dense.
Topdressing is a sand or prepared soil mix applied to the surface of the lawn. The term topdressing also is used for the process of applying the material.
Topdressing materials are evenly applied in a thin layer, typically ¼ inch (6.35 mm) or less, for a variety of purposes. Topdressing can be used to smooth the surface of the lawn. It can reduce thatch buildup by encouraging decomposition. It can be used following seeding, overseeding or sprigging to protect the developing plants from desiccation during the establishment process. It also can be used on open, windswept turfgrass to help avoid winter desiccation.
When applied following core aeration, the topdressing material filters into the holes opened by the aeration process, speeding turfgrass recovery.
The European Chafer beetle is an invasive insect pest. Its larvae feed on the roots of grasses, causing serious damage to the lawns.
Apply nematodes (Heterorhabditis bacteriophora is recommended) 2 times in late July to early August in 2 times.
Water Exemption Permits must be obtained through the Engineering Department to prevent conflict with City watering restrictions. Visit coquitlam.ca/chaferbeetle for more information.
Grass roots need air, water and nutrients to grow thick, deep and strong. When soil becomes compacted, even slightly, it inhibit the flow of the essentials that support thicker, healthier turf growth. A layer of compacted soil just 1/4 to 1/2 inches thick can make a significant difference in the health and beauty of your lawn.1 Aeration creates holes down into the soil to alleviate compaction so air, water and nutrients can reach grass roots.
Deprived of their basic needs by compacted soil, lawn grasses struggle in stressful situations, such as heat and low rainfall, and lose their healthy, rich color. Grasses gradually thin and eventually die out completely, for lack of the oxygen, water and nutrients available just inches away. Even a single aeration session can open the avenue for these essentials to reach their mark and put your lawn back on an upward trend.
With premium 2.75 inch deep cores relieving compaction, improves drainage, reducing thatch where improving fertilizer, water, and oxygen efficiency to the roots. The result is stronger, thicker and healthier turf.

Power Raking is a great way to remove the dead debris and moss that builds up on a lawn over winter.
we remove moos on the edge-side that cannot be removed from the machine by line trimmer.
We take away all of the debris and moss raked by power raking and mowing your lawn so you don't need to worry about cleaning.
We recommend power raking in the early spring before new growth has begun.
The 9-3-6 Lawn Fertilizer with Moss Control will kill
the moss remained and encourage strong lawn growth to take over the bald spots
Power raking is also a great service to combine with over seeding, as it opens the lawn surface so that new seed can get better established.
Top dressing can be used following seeding or overseeding to protect the developing plants from desiccation during the establishment process.
After 10-14 day from seeding, seeds will start to be germinated and you will do first lawn mowing when the new grass rich up to 3 inch height.
The best time to prune depends upon the plant.
You can do light trimming throughout the year.
There are two basic types of pruning cuts: heading cuts, and thinning cuts. Heading cuts stimulate growth of buds closest to the wound. The direction in which the top remaining bud is pointing will determine the direction of new growth. Make heading cuts selectively to reduce shrub height and retain natural form. Non-selective heading cuts made indiscriminately will stimulate rapid regrowth from buds below the cut. These vigorous shoots are unattractive and make shrubs bushier, but not smaller. Non- selective heading cuts are only justifiable when using hedge clippers on a hedge or topiaried shrub.
Thinning cuts remove branches at their points of origin or attachment. Used in moderation, thinning cuts reduce shrub density without stimulating regrowth.
Cedars are the most popular and usually the most economical, with the Smargd or Emerald Green Cedar being the most popular. This is the one you see in most gardens. The 'Excelsa' cedar is a cousin to the native Western Red Cedar and is a good choice if a larger, taller hedge is required. All cedars require more sun and are not a great option for shady spots.
The Yews, also known by their botanical name, Taxus, are a great option for both sun or shade. Several varieties are available including: HM Eddie, Melford, Hills Yew, Hicks Yew and one of our favourites the Fastigiate or Irish Yew. Yews tend to be more pricey, so don't get sticker shock! To their credit though, Yews are much easier to prune and keep to a given size and shape.
The best time-saving measure a gardener can take is applying mulch. This goes for everywhere from vegetable gardens to flower beds. Mulched gardens grow healthier, have fewer weeds, and resist drought than unmulched ones. Done properly, it'll allow you to spend less time watering, weeding, and fighting pest problems.
We build pavings, slabs and retaining walls as a professional landscaper.
We create beautiful yard designs by combining seasonal color, perennials, landscaping, and maintenance.
Fiesta® Lawn Weed Killer is a selective, broadleaf weed killer that leaves turf healthy and weed-free using a specially formulated iron chelate solution.
Fiesta® works quickly, delivering visible same-day results, even in cool weather. And since Fiesta® is made from iron, it has no unpleasant odor during or after application, and people and pets can re-enter the treated area once the spray is dry. Suitable for broadcast application or spot treatment, Fiesta® is a versatile, patented product that will help grass look its best, even in many pesticide restricted areas such as parks, golf courses, cemeteries, sports fields, and playgrounds. This product is ideal for lawn care where pesticide bans exist.
Fiesta was approved in 2010 through the Low Risk Evaluation Stream of Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA). The PMRA criteria of low risk pesticides are:
• Long-time human usage without health or safety concern
FeHEDTA has been used for decades in fertilizers, cosmetics, and as a food supplement.
• Non-toxic mode of action
Weeds and grasses take up iron, an essential plant nutrient, in different ways. The chelator in FeHEDTA makes it easier
for weeds to absorb the iron, to the point where excess iron is absorbed, leading to plant death. Grasses can absorb
greater amounts of iron without suffering ill effects.
• Low toxicity to other organisms in the environment
All studies with FeHEDTA classify it in the least toxic category to people, animals, and the environment.
FeHEDTA is less toxic than vinegar or table salt.
• Does not accumulate in the environment
FeHEDTA is quickly absorbed and metabolized by plants, and is readily degraded by sunlight and natural microbes that
live in the soil.
• Limited exposure to the end user
Fiesta is only used on lawns and has no food or feed uses, and the herbicidal uses of FeHEDTA are similar with fertilizer
uses which have already been used for many years.
Once diluted in water, the level of active ingredient in the spray is only 0.25%. People and pets can enter the treated
area once the spray has dried.
Fiesta is allowed for continued use in all provinces that have cosmetic pesticide restrictions.
The weeds listed below are ones that are controlled by Fiesta:
