With the arrival of Spring come thoughts of barbeques, boating, NHL playoffs and of course… Ottawa landscaping. And nothing is as boring, but also imperative, for your Ottawa lawn care spring as aerating and fertilizing. You can schedule with Zoryk’s for help with this as part of comprehensive Ottawa landscaping services or do it on your own. The one catch is if you are aerating as part of your Ottawa lawn care (which you should), my guess is you do not own an aerator – so either call Zoryk’s to save yourself the hassle or go in with neighbors and rent one for a half day at Home Depot.
Aerating is beneficial to do for your Ottawa landscaping the Fall or Spring – and a must. You are in luck as aerating in the Spring helps your lawn “green up” faster as it allows water to get to your grass’s roots faster and recover from winter dormancy. It seems counter-intuitive that tearing up your lawn with an aerator makes your lawn greener… so how does aerating actually work to help your Ottawa lawn? Aerating facilitates oxygen, water and nutrients to get to your lawn’s roots. This helps your lawn be more durable and strong through summer drought months.
In case you watch sports… you may have seen a commercial or 100 about feeding your lawn, or fertilizing. Not only does fertilizing your lawn improve the short and long term health of your Ottawa yard, many applications include a pre-emergent to prevent crabgrass.
