Every great lawn is technically man-made. We don’t mean "man-made" as in plastic or artificial, but in the sense that it takes a lot of man-hours to grow and maintain. The thick carpet of weed-free grass that most proud homeowners crave doesn't happen by itself. Achieving the ultimate curb-appeal of a great lawn requires some T.L.C. to reach its full potential. Keeping the root system well-fed with a regular supply of the right nutrients is one of the most important of Nutri-Lawn's Ottawa lawn care services, and having some knowledge of what, when and how much fertilizer to apply will keep your lawn healthy year-round.

One of the most misunderstood lawn care services in Ottawa is lime. Some people don’t even know what it is. Others are woefully misinformed and believe that it’s something they “should” apply every year without knowing why. Very few people know the ins and outs of lime and how it can make a difference in some lawns. The keyword there is “some.” Not all lawns will benefit from a lime application. To inform the masses about lime and the benefits of it, we have decided to educate our customers.

From residential lawns to municipal parks, from farmland to forests, there's so much grass around that most of us don't give it a lot of thought unless we're deep into our Ottawa lawn care activities. Did you know that a grass lawn of roughly 230 square metres adds enough oxygen to the environment to sustain an average household? According to NASA, a person typically requires approximately 0.84 kg of oxygen per 24-hour period, so that means that your lawn is producing almost three and a half kilograms of oxygen per day.

With spring just around the corner, many Ottawa homeowners are waiting for the day that they can get outside and begin the process of rejuvenating their lawn and garden after a long, cold winter. With the arrival of warmer weather, this time of year is also when the real estate market really heats up. If you're planning to list your home for sale, you've probably been busy making a number of interior improvements on the advice of your real estate agent. Most homeowners who want a quick sale at or above their asking price will focus on traditional upgrades, such as fresh paint, new kitchen countertops and backsplashes, or bathroom touch-ups in order to achieve a decent return on their investment.
