What you should know about your lawn.
Fertilization is an essential part of a comprehensive lawn care plan. Not only is a well-fertilized lawn healthier and greener, it is also far better at preventing weed infestation, disease, and drought. As an added bonus, healthy lawns give back to the environment by producing oxygen, cooling the air during hot weather, and trapping and absorbing urban dust and pollution.
Our premium, golf course-quality mixture feeds your lawn gradually, and only when it needs it. This allows grass plants to feed over an extended period, rather than feast all at once.
Our exclusive, high-quality blend is made from naturally-occurring ingredients that aid in plant growth, keep grass looking green and healthy, assist in root development, and increase winter hardiness and resistance to disease and drought.
There are two advantages to slow-release nitrogen:
- The nitrogen is made available to the plant as the plant needs it, over an 8-week period. With a fast-release fertilizer, it’s either feast or famine for the plant.
- Since the fertilizer is used gradually, very little is wasted.
They’re pesky, stubborn, and seem to provoke a never-ending battle.

Health and Safety
PK Grass takes your family’s safety very seriously. We also care about the safety of our employees and technicians. That’s why we strictly adhere to all applicable Canadian Regulations. All weed control products registered for use in Canada are ‘contact’ products, meaning that the product must come into direct contact with the weed in order to be effective. Weed control products used by PK Grass are tested and registered by Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency, and applied by licensed, trained professionals.
Get the Most Out of PK Grass Weed Control Service:
After application, keep kids and pets off the lawn until it is dry.
Although the weed control will usually be effective even if it rains within a few hours, watering your lawn should be postponed until the next day.
Wait at least 48 hours to mow. Otherwise, you may cut weeds off before the product has properly absorbed into the entire plant system.
Be patient! Weed control takes time, and sometimes multiple applications are necessary. However, when combined in a comprehensive lawn care program, you will see a dramatic reduction in broadleaf weeds growing in your yard over time.
Be proactive! Keep your lawn properly fed, cut, and watered. Aeration, Overseeding and
compost are also effective ways to boost your lawn’s health.
There is suppose to be a natural balance between insects, natural predators and food supply. But if something – like a change in the weather pattern – happens to change that balance, then insect populations increase and may cause extensive damage. Insect damage will be particularly severe in thin, dry, or weed-infested lawns.
AN ESSENTIAL STEP: DIAGNOSIS
PK Grass Surface Insect Control should begin once the early signs of injury are observed, or when significant numbers of insects are found on the lawn. Since some insects can only be controlled at certain times during their life cycles, it is essential to know:
- The insect responsible for the damage;
- The life cycle of that insect;
- The level of infestation.
If left unchecked, turf insects such as Chinch Bugs, Sod Webworms and Cutworms can cause considerable damage to your lawn. Surface Insect Control begins with the identification of the insect causing damage to the lawn. Because some insects can only be controlled at certain times during their life cycles, PK Grass Lawn Care technicians are trained to identify the insect responsible for the damage, the specific life cycle of that insect and the exact level of infestation.
PK Grass employees are carefully trained to diagnose insect damage in your region. This knowledge is parlayed into a customized program that is applied only when and where needed.
Applications may be necessary when damage history is apparent and/or threshold infestations have threatened the overall health of the lawn. After watering in treatment, people and pets may play on the lawn after 24 hours or when dry.
Beautiful yards are created by providing the best growing conditions based on a solid foundation of inputs such as fertilizers, water, seed and control products, when necessary. Core Aeration – which can be performed in the spring or fall – improves your lawn’s health and beauty, optimizes root development, and reduces thatch and associated problems.
It also deepens your lawn’s root system for greater resistance to disease, insects, drought and heat stress; improves drainage; and improves air, fertilizer, and water movement. It can also help reduce water usage. Overseeding is often performed in conjunction with core aeration.
