You want to make sure that your commercial property always looks its best. You may have plenty of grass that you need to care for regularly. A professional landscape service will take care of all of the regular lawn care needs, such as mowing and weed removal. You will also need to apply Grande Prairie fertilizer to make sure the grass stays green and lush.

How Often Does the Grass Need Fertilization?

Grass requires fertilization at least a couple of times a year. The first application of Grande Prairie fertilizer occurs in the spring. The grass is coming out of a dormant winter stage and needs some help as it begins the new growth cycle. When you start a new lawn, you need to apply starter fertilizer. It provides the nutrients that new seeds need to improve their chances of survival and growth. You should also fertilize the lawn during the growing season and again before winter. A professional landscaper will give you the details of fertilizing based on the particular type of grass that you have at your location.

Applying Fertilizer

 Many types of fertilizer have a formula that releases nutrients over time. The fertilizer is made in tiny pebbles. You can apply the fertilizer to the lawn with a spreader. There are different types of spreaders. If you have a large area to fertilize you will want to use an automatic spreader. It is a cart that releases the correct amount of fertilizer onto the lawn when you walk. You can use a hand spreader for small areas. A professional landscape company will take care of putting fertilizer on your grass. The will let you know when they need to apply Grande Prairie fertilizer and provide you with an estimate.

Does My Grass Need Fertilizer?

All types of grass will benefit from fertilizer. Grass requires nutrients that help it grow and thrive. When you have healthy grass, it is green and thick. Everyone wants a lush lawn, especially a place of business. In addition to fertilizer, your grass may need additional attention. A sprinkler or irrigation system is designed to provide water for your grass and plants. The lawn gets compacted over time. You need to aerate the yard once in a while to improve the air circulation around the roots and to allow it to absorb water and nutrients more readily. You will notice that your grass is thicker after you use fertilizer.

Grande Prairie Trees

Trees can be a beautiful addition to any yard, but planting and maintaining one is not as easy as it may seem. Grande Prairie trees can be purchased from Greenblade Landscape Company and can be shipped right to your home. Thanks to the position of the nurseries, the trees are hardy and durable. The irrigation system helps the trees that are grown to be high in quality.

How Do I Care For A Replanted Tree?

While Greenblade is ready to bring home your new tree at any time of the year, having a tree replanted in your yard is just the first step. Caring for and maintaining a tree requires work and research. If the newly planted tree isn’t cared for how it should be, it could die. For successful replanting, there are three key tips to remember.

Watering

Watering is essential for most plants, and trees are no different. Water is what helps trees to absorb moisture and oxygen starting in the roots. When a tree is replanted it becomes stressed so a little extra water might be necessary to keep it healthy. In general, young trees should be watered every day for about two weeks. After that two week period, watering them once a week is a good rule to stick to. It is important to account rain into this schedule, as overwatering can be dangerous to the tree. However, during any especially hot or dry periods, your tree should be watered more than usual.

Mulching

Mulch is what helps trees hold on to moisture. It also helps to fight off weeds and make sure soil temperatures stay balanced. While mulching your tree is important, it is also possible to over mulch, and this can harm your new tree. Too much mulch contributes to fungi and diseases, and it can even attract unwanted pests. There is a correct way to mulch. Use no more than four inches of mulch, and make sure it reaches out as far as the tree’s leaves go. After this, clear out an area of about two inches around the trunk of the tree so air can circulate.

Pruning

Pruning a tree is the act of cutting and trimming any branch defects, as these can hinder the way your tree grows. When your new tree is first planted, make sure to go ahead and prune it of any minor defects or damages. After this initial trimming, make sure not to prune again for around a year if your tree is still fairly young. Young trees are still growing, so pruning them too much during this stage will limit their growth.

What Is Transplant Shock?

Greenblade Landscaping ships trees from their nurseries right to your yard, which is known as transplanting. While this is a good way to bring home a beautiful tree, there is the risk of transplant shock. This happens after a tree is moved around and goes into shock from the change. While it is hard to avoid this all the time, the above three steps can help.
