Transform Your First Home with Proper Lawn Care

Are you a first time homeowner? This is your home, your oasis, your getaway. For the first time ever, you get to decide exactly how your yard looks and how your house is run. This excitement shouldn’t be compromised with the daunting thought of new responsibilities. Nutri-Lawn Ottawa can help take away the hassles, and keep all the fun parts!

Keeping your landscaping simple and effective will be problem-free when you have the right irrigation system matched with good preparatory practices. Nutri-Lawn inground sprinkler systems will make your life so much easier. Here are a few tips from Nutri-Lawn Ottawa to help you get the most out of your inground sprinkler systems in the best possible way.

Install the right irrigation system
Inground sprinkler systems are underappreciated treasures in Ottawa lawn care. In fact, properly designed and installed inground watering systems can make the difference between a beautifully verdant lawn and a lawn with sad, weak roots.

Nutri-Lawn inground sprinkler systems are positioned in a way that reduces run off. If you have a sloping lawn, you’ll want your heads closer to the top of the slope so that more water reaches your roots rather than the street below.

Another thing Nutri-Lawn Ottawa recommends for your inground sprinkler systems are rain sensors. Rain sensors will regularly measure the amount of water your soil contains and then decide whether or not your inground sprinkler systems should be turned off. Rain sensors ensure water conservation, and also make sure that your lawn doesn’t receive a double dose of water, which can harm it as much as under watering.

Test your soil type
Before you can do any other landscaping, you need to know your soil type. Test your soil to learn more about it. Once you know what type of soil you have, you can figure out whether or not the current grass is the right kind. The previous owners of your home may not have planted the best grass, depending on if they tested the soil.

Once you learn about your yard, Nutri-Lawn Ottawa can help you figure out the best grass seed to plant, and you can also set a more accurate and effective schedule for your inground sprinkler system watering schedule.

Plant native plants
Now that you know more about your soil, you can plant species that are appropriate for your lawn. This includes native plants that are acclimatized to the weather in your geographical region. These plants require far less work from both you and your Ottawa irrigation systems.

Native plants are more likely to survive adverse weather conditions throughout the summer, and look beautiful and natural in your garden. Exotic plants are even those that are from out of province, so make sure to discuss your options with a Nutri-Lawn Ottawa specialist.
