These days, it's all about the gas - gas lawnmowers, gas trimmers. And once you get into winter, there are gas snow blowers. When it comes to your Ottawa turf care, gas is just so convenient. There's no cord to get tangled up in, you can buy gas virtually anywhere, and the power of a gas engine can be quite impressive. However, gas is expensive and harmful for the environment. Luckily, there's an equally mobile alternative in the modern push reel mower. It may seem a little old school, but you should consider it as a viable “green” option for your turf maintenance program.

How To Prevent Common Lawn Damage

While every home and homeowner is different, they all stand united in a common goal: to have the greenest, most pristine and lush lawn on the block. They hang up pictures of golf greens as inspiration. They invest in lawn sprinkler installation to ensure their grass gets the perfect amount of moisture. They comb through their lawn for weeds. Their lawn mowing schedule and mower height are both set to perfection. Yet, despite all of the obsessing and hours spent perfecting their lawn, disaster can still strike. Something ends up eating holes in the grass blades, or brown patches begin to sprout. Wringing their hands, homeowners fret at where they went wrong. However, it doesn't matter how hard you work at your lawn, grass is still delicate and can be damaged by any number of factors. With the help of your lawn sprinkler installation experts, you can get your beautiful lawn back in no time!

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? Read on to become a believer in grass cycling.
