This winter's bitter cold has left lawns ravaged. Bare spots are the result of any number of maladies that can cause prolonged, costly damage to landscapes including insect pests, fungus, disease, ice, wind, heat, cold, shade, drought or too much moisture and the list goes on. In many cases, however, a major contributor to poor grass is soil compaction.
 
The fact is turfgrass roots, like all plant roots, need oxygen to live and grow.  Compaction is a physical condition that slowly reduces the amount of air in the soil. Walking, mowing and playing (foot traffic including humans and pets) all contribute to

You've just bought a shiny new walk mower and you have visions of the best lawn on the block, with deep-green grass so crisp it looks like it belongs in a ballpark. But the safety is the most important part of that program. 
 
Always be safe and smart with your tool thing you can do when operating your mower. Safety glasses, proper footwear and gloves are always recommended. Make sure your safety gear fit comfortably, and allow for safe visibility and operation. Don't forget about your ears! Ear muffs offer the most protection. but even simple earplugs are far better than nothing.

With the arrival of warmer weather (finally!), you may be giving thought to your home's lawn. Coaxing it back to life after a hard winter is important, but don't overdo it.
 
A lot of people try to chop away at the lawn right from the start.  This is actually a foolish practice for a few reasons.
We at Alpine recommend letting the grass grow tall in early spring.
 
 
Much like any other rooted plant, taller full pants breed stronger, sustainable roots.  Grass consists of 90% water.  Allowing grass roots to establish themselves allows the soil to become much more susceptable to growth, water and...

Spring has FINALLY sprung! Although temperatures flutter well below average, for all purposes spring has arrived. Not only do recent temperatures speak of spring, but look along the highways and county roads during your weekend getaways. Before you know it, plants will be in bloom. Flowering trees, forsythia bushes, daffodils, and irises will join the celebration in showing their colors. Soon we shall see our first hummingbirds. As the signs of spring grow stronger my desire to get into my garden also grows.

Brrrrr! As frigid temperatures continue to plague us across Ontario, grass and plant growth is at a stand still.
The historically cold weather in December and January forced most lawns into dormancy. As Warm temperatures arrive in the next few weeks, they will will bring back the green.
 
Winter weeds such as henbit, chickweed, thistle, bedstraw, rescue grass, annual bluegrass, dandelions and beggars lice have already gotten a start. They launch themselves early to form seeds before hot weather kills them off.
 
 
Mowing is the best way to control weeds in the lawn. Mowing is also useful in cutting the...
