Beat the Heat and Water Your Way to A Green Lawn

A green lawn is a healthy lawn - and a healthy lawn is a cool lawn! Did you know that when your lawn is healthy it acts as a natural air conditioner? Not only will your lawn filter out unwanted dust, smoke, and smog particles from the air - just like the filters on your air conditioner - but it will also transform those less desirable particles into breathable oxygen.

The health of your lawn is crucial in keeping it free pests, weeds, and brown spots. One of the most vital elements in a healthy lawn’s life is water! But, despite what you might think, your lawn does not need incredible amounts of water.

The fact that your lawn can thrive on a limited amount of water is great, considering the hot hot summer Ottawa is experiencing! So, just what do you need to do to keep your lawn as healthy, and cool as possible?

Install a Custom In-Ground Irrigation System
Once you have tried an in-ground sprinkler system, you will never go back. The convenience and savings alone will have you telling all your friends about your irrigation system in no time! An in-ground irrigation system by Nutri-Lawn Ottawa always begins with a complimentary consultation. We walk with you over your entire property and talk you through our irrigation systems. We use individual sprinkler heads that can each be customized to suit the needs of a particular area. This is because your lawn requires a different watering schedule than trees, shrubs, and flower/vegetable beds.

Weather Sensing Irrigation Systems
As the saying goes: when it rains, it pours. And when it does, our weather sensing sprinkler systems will take into account any precipitation and adjust the watering plan accordingly. While under-watering your lawn can cause brown spots and pest infestation, overwatering can also cause damage. As a general rule of thumb, your lawn only needs to be watered thoroughly one day per week. Our weather sensing sprinkler systems from brands like Rain Bird and Hunter will calculate how much morerain your lawn actually needs.

Programmable Irrigation Systems
During the summer, the best time to water your lawn is first thing in the morning - a time, when you would sooner be reading the newspaper, hitting the snooze button, or pouring yourself another cup of coffee. An in-ground irrigation system allows you to do all of these things, while also making sure your lawn is healthier than ever. At Nutri-Lawn Irrigation Ottawa we use easy to program irrigation systems that make it possible for you to adjust your watering plan without having to call in the professionals. (Of course, we’re here for you if you need us though!) You may also need to adjust your watering schedule should Ottawa impose water restrictions on residential lawn watering.
