Soil Treatment Services
At Lawn Care Alert, we believe that soil is more than just the dirt underneath your feet. The richness of your soil is directly responsible for how much your plants and flowers grow and thrive. Indeed, soil provides both stability and food for your flora, and the healthier the soil, the more nutrients a plant can soak up. We carefully select the finest fertilizers for your garden bed and apply just the right amount to avoid over-fertilization. Fertilizing is so important because of the three nutrients it provides to your soil, and in turn, your plants.
The three key nutrients your soil requires are:
To speed up the growth of plants, you need to provide these three elements in their “easily digestible” forms. That is the aim of fertilizer. The majority of fertilizers only offer nitrogen, potassium and phosphorous because other required chemicals are needed in smaller quantities, which are naturally available in soils.
The majority of lawn care experts believe that a ratio of 4-1-2 is the optimum mixture of these elements to facilitate the healthy growth of your lawn. Fertilizing your garden bed requires a more conservative and careful approach. In fact, over-fertilizing established perennial gardens can lead to excessive growth that slumps. Additionally, it can lead to the overproduction of foliage at the expense of the bloom. However, a carefully applied amount at the beginning of spring will give your flowers the added boost they need.
Mulching, on the other hand, requires spreading materials like chipped bark or composted manure on top of the soil surface. Doing so helps the soil retain moisture, stay cool and actively discourages the growth of weeds. Turning loosens the soil and allows for the efficient air and water circulation to the roots of your plants.
Our landscape experts at Lawn Care Alert will know the right solution to get your garden bed soil or lawn soil in tip top shape. We will assess your soil to determine whether it is in need of fertilizer, mulching or turning.
Even if you own the most beautiful home on the street, if your garden is worn out and tattered, your whole property can look tired. New plants, shrubs, and trees can “spruce” up your yard and help to highlight and accentuate the aesthetics of your home while creating a garden you will long to enjoy.
Both your front and back yards are extensions of the interior of your house. You want to use this space to its fullest potential so that you can spend time in your very own personal nature reserve.
At the same time, you want to avoid feeling like you’re in a fishbowl, with your neighbours peering into your yard. At Lawn Care Alert, we help you select the right plants, trees, and shrubs to give you privacy and to enjoy your landscape peacefully.
Our expert landscapers take into account many factors when choosing plants for your property. For example, it is important whether you should be planting an evergreen or deciduous specimen. Experts will tell you that corner plants and those flanking an entrance should invariably be evergreens. On the other hand, deciduous species fade and lose their visual impact in the winter, meaning they are more suited to stand beneath windows.
As for size, you want to avoid overcrowding and excessive growth, which could result in your garden becoming cluttered. So, in some cases, despite its beauty, your most preferred plant may be inappropriate for the space under consideration. We’ll help you find an equally stunning alternative. Either way, there are plenty of factors to consider when it comes to planting, many of which aren’t common knowledge. The good news is that our expert landscapers can assist you when making your choice! Lawn Care Alert will help you create your very own private, sustainable, urban oasis.
