With the peak of the summer season now here and homeowners across Calgary looking across their gardens to survey their outdoor space, many are discovering recurring garden problems. Within this latest post, our trusted team of landscapers outlines three common summer landscaping issues local Calgary homeowners face.
Large Trees Shading the Lawn
While large trees can offer a spectacular appeal to any lawn space, they can also cover grass in shade – limiting sun and rainwater access. This can inhibit lawn growth and may cause patchy areas to appear. Adding a shade garden or harnessing better-suited Kentucky Bluegrass sod can help to revitalize a lawn space covered in the shade of a larger tree.
Excess water on the lawn can be caused by the slope of the grass. It’s a common problem for homeowners with properties at the bottom of large hills and can become exceptionally problematic during periods of heavy one. One of the leading options the top
recommend for this issue is to use a French drain system to divert the water through a gravel-filled trench. Homeowners might also consider diverting the water into a holding pond.
Moss and Weeds
Moss and weeds occur within the lawn as a result of poor soil conditions and limited maintenance over time. Homeowners can mitigate these issues by harnessing higher quality sod and installing the new sod within their lawn areas during the summertime. This will help ensure the lawn space is healthy for the coming months and beyond.To discover more on the latest landscaping challenges, call our Calgary landscapers today at 403-890-2267.

Along with their expert sod services, clients have the option to include residential snow removal, and lawn maintenance.
Residential Snow Removal
Snow piles and rock salt when improperly handled, as well as the snow removal equipment, can cause damage to the lawn and surrounding structures. For example, the salt often used the Airdrie area to melt snow and ice from walkways and driveways can leach into the soil causing chemical burns on the lawn's vulnerable root systems. This causes the grass to die, leaving unsightly brown patches along the edges of the lawn.
Scott's Sod has years of experience professionally removing snow from residential areas. Emergency snow removal teams are trained in the proper removal techniques to minimize potential damages from equipment and snow pack. They are available 24 hours a day to better serve their customers in Airdrie.

There is something breathtaking about a lush green lawn, but the frigidness of Calgary winters can take their toll on homeowner's grass. Protect your lawn , and your view, with these winter maintenance tips from Calgary landscaping company Scott’s Sod .
One of the best ways to ensure a lush lawn in the spring is to make sure you apply the right type of fertilizer at the right times of the year. While it is common for homeowners to apply fertilizer in the spring, many overlook their lawn's needs throughout the winter. Applying fertilizer before the deep freeze allows the nutrients to slowly seep into the soil and keep your grass well fed, leading to thicker lawns.
Cut Lawns Shorter as Temperatures Fall
Longer grasses allow pests to burrow and nest under the snow, creating tunnels and potentially killing the grass around their winter den. Help prevent pests by cutting the grass shorter as the weather becomes colder. Doing so also helps protect new grass growth and provides it with greater access to sunlight and water.
Remove Debris Promptly
Shoveling or plowing snow can cause deposits of debris, such as gravel, dirt, or leaf matter. When left alone on your lawn, these items can starve the underlying grass and smother new growth. As your snow melts, or as soon as you see unwanted debris, make sure you rake the area clear or otherwise remove the debris.
Avoid Walking Across Frozen Lawns
Many landscaping companies in Calgary will tell you that walking across frozen or frost coated grass can kill the plants by destroying their cell structures. Prevent this by making sure there is a clear, well defined path, and request quests avoid walking across your yard.
Treat the Weeds
Winter is a great time to treat any weeds in your yard. The colder weather causes your grass to enter a dormant stage, which is why it turns yellow or brown in the winter. Weeds, on the other hand, tend to remain prominent, allowing for easier treatment or removal.
Ideally, homeowners can tend their lawns before winter sets in, however, all hope is not lost for those who let time get away from them. As Calgary landscapers who specialize in lawn care and sod installation , Scott's Sod can evaluate your yard and recommend the best options to ensure a lush green lawn this spring.

Winters in Calgary are harsh and can wreak havoc on area landscapes, leading to dead, patchy, and discolored lawns. However, spending a few moments throughout the winter can greatly reduce the potential damages. Here's how.
Rock Salt and Snow Melt
Keeping your walkways clear of ice is important for the safety of your loved ones and guests, however, the salt used to melt ice and snow can settle on the edges of your lawn. Salt buildup can burn your grass and stop it from growing in the spring. To prevent this problem, avoid putting salt directly on your lawn. Other options include:
As you shovel or plow snow throughout the winter , road matter and other debris mingles with the snow. When the snow melts, this debris settles on your yard, which can smother new growth and kill your grass. While snow piles and debris are unavoidable in Calgary, stay on top of the problem by removing debris as the snow melts. The best way to do this is by raking the area throughout the winter, or soon after the last snow of the season.
Plows and Shoveling
Unfortunately plowing and shoveling your snow can damage your yard, particularly when the edge between your driveway and grass is not well defined. Ideally, you can mark the edge before the first snow to help prevent turf damage. However, if this is not possible, pay close attention and replace any disturbed sod. Extensive damages may require intervention from landscaping companies in Calgary that specialize in sod, such as Scott's Sod in Airdrie.
Frost and Ice
Frost and ice look so beautiful reflecting the morning sun; however, if something walks across a frosted lawn, they can damage the grass by destroying the cell structures. To prevent a path of browned foot prints come spring, avoid walking across the frozen grass and request your guests do the same. If you already have a path carved out of your ice coated lawn, you may need to install new sod .
