Do You Grass Cycle?
Let's be honest, mowing the lawn is far from fun; but, once you get into a groove, it isn't the worst job either.

Lucky for you, there's no need to continue this tedious practice. Collecting and removing grass clippings is both unnecessary and counterproductive to growing a healthy lawn. Don't believe us?

Don't Be Crabby: Crab Grass Prevention and Control | Nutri-Lawn Ottawa
Crab grass is a type of annual grass. Once it takes up residence in your Ottawa lawn, it can be very hard to evict. What's more, since crab grass has an aggressive seeding pattern and grows quickly, it can easily overwhelm your existing grass.
Crab grass works by taking over large sections of your lawn. It grows in thick mats that choke out any of the surrounding vegetation. Once that grass dies, the crab grass spreads its seeds over the bare spots. This allows the crab grass to spread even further during the next growing season, especially if it gets enough water. Once crab grass takes a hold of your property – watch out! As with most weeds, prevention is always easier and more effective than trying to fight the weeds after they appear.
