When basic maintenance is not enough...
Your lawn is yellowed? Your yard is infested with insects? Your soil is poorly irrigated?
If you've tried other lawn care companies, or tried it yourself, but didn't get the results you wanted, it may be that your lawn needs a shock treatment. Our specialized services can help your lawn.
Add one or more of the following services to your plan:
Your lawn probably needs fertilizer if:
Fertilization provides your lawn with the nutrients that it lacks and that the soil cannot provide. Fertilization ensures the optimal and long-lasting development of the lawn.
100% natural fertilization: Vision Gazon uses natural fertilizers that are free of chemicals and pesticides, safe for humans and animals, approved by Health Canada and Quebec municipal standards.
The application of fertilizers allows the grass to grow more freely, more quickly, and to occupy more space with its roots. The result is a dense, healthy lawn that naturally reduces the space available for weeds and is more resistant to insect infestation.
Why use 100% natural fertilization?
We have developed 3 fertilizer formulas optimized for each season: a spring formula, a summer formula and a fall formula.
Following the optimal dosage, our specialist will apply fertilizer evenly to the entire surface of your lawn. He will also add Crystal Green, the first fertilizer with continuous phosphorus release. Crystal Green works gradually to nourish your lawn all summer long.
Your lawn probably needs aeration if:
Aeration is a technique that reduces soil compaction and helps thatch decompose.
When the soil becomes too compact, it is more difficult for roots to grow and the lack of space slows down the grass's growth.
Aeration promotes rapid infiltration of water into the soil and distribution of nutrients and fertilizers. It helps roots grow deeper. In short, your lawn breathes better!
Aeration key benefits:
Our specialist will first conduct an analysis of your soil to determine its compaction level. Then, our specialist will drill fine holes all over your lawn with an aerator device that extracts small cores of soil.
Vision Gazon recommends aerating your lawn once a year.
Your soil probably needs lime if:
The application of lime (liming) is a technique that is used to restore the soil's pH.
Lime is a white powdery mineral composed of calcium. Its basic pH reduces the acidity level of the soil and thus promotes a better rooting of the grass.
By reducing the acidity level of the soil, liming helps with rooting, fertilizer efficiency, development of soil microorganisms and reduces weed growth.
When the soil becomes too acidic or too alkaline, the grass cannot absorb all the nutrients it needs. Inadequate pH also impairs soil structural stability, promotes fungal diseases and threatens the survival of many beneficial organisms.
Generally, lawns grow best in relatively neutral soil (pH between 6.5 and 7).
Liming key benefits:
Our specialist will first conduct an analysis of your soil to determine its acidity level (pH) and assess its calcium needs.
Then, our specialist will rebalance your soil pH by spreading lime following the optimal dosage.
Your lawn probably needs mycorrhizae if:
The application of mycorrhizae is an ecological technique that improves drought tolerance and optimizes the absorption of fertilizers.
Mycorrhizae are fungi that live in symbiosis with the roots of the grass and are in natural harmony with the lawn's ecosystem.
Mycorrhizae stimulate leaf growth, especially in poor soils, because the fungus retains moisture longer and thus allows for better absorption of water and nutrients by the grass roots.
Mycorrhizae key benefits:
Our specialist will first conduct an analysis of your soil to determine its mycorrhizae needs.
Then, our specialist will apply mycorrhizae to the entire surface of your lawn by making sure to follow the optimal dosage.
Is your yard full of weeds?
Weeds are invasive wild plants that are usually very hardy and spread quickly.
Dandelion, plantain, thistle, ivy, quackgrass and oxalis are growing on your property? There are even species you don't recognize? Call on the experts at Vision Gazon for a diagnosis and effective weed control solutions.
The resistance and speed at which weeds spread allows them to compete directly with your lawn by depriving it of water, nutrients and light. They also grow faster and can introduce diseases or attract parasites.
It is important to take action quickly and control weeds development before they can multiply and spread across your property.
Our specialist will first perform an analysis of your yard to identify the weeds growing there. Afterwards, he will be able to propose solutions adapted to your situation.
Preventive weed check is performed during each visit to act quickly and prevent spreading.
Your lawn probably has white grubs if:
White grubs are June beetles and beetles larvae that live in grassy soils and consume the roots.
Appearance: White grubs have a whitish, c-shaped and soft body with a tan or brown head. When first hatched they can be as small as 5 mm long, but at maturity they can reach a length of 2 to 4 cm.
Try pulling on the grass where there is damage. If it pulls away like a patch, white grubs are probably to blame.
It is important to act quickly when the first signs of an infestation are detected because white grubs reproduce rapidly, especially during hot weather. Also, white grubs are weaker and easily eliminated when at the larvae stage, rather than when they are mature.
By eating the roots of the grass, white grubs prevent the grass from growing normally and can destroy your entire lawn if not treated.
Our specialist will first perform an analysis of your lawn to determine the severity of the infestation. Afterwards, he will be able to propose solutions adapted to your situation.
Vision Gazon uses a nematode biological control treatment to eliminate white grubs naturally. Nematodes are an efficient solution to control white grub populations while being totally safe for humans, pets and your lawn's ecosystem.
Preventive white grub check is performed during spring and fall to act quickly and prevent further spread.
Your property and home are infested with ants?
Ants are fast reproducing insects that build their nests in the ground by destroying grass roots.
Not only do ants build nests that can make yards less aesthetic and inviting, they can also enter homes and inflict damages to wood structure.
Ants can chew the roots of the grass to build underground tunnels, which prevents the grass from absorbing water and the lawn from drying out. Because the lawn is weakened, weeds can proliferate more easily.
In addition, ants breed aphids and mealy bugs to obtain the honeydew they produce. These pests can cause significant damage to your lawn.
Be aware that ants (e.g. carpenter ants) can enter the house and eat the wood, damaging the structure. In the event of a confirmed infestation and when mass-produced insecticides no longer work, it's time to call in the pest control professionals.
Our specialist will first perform an analysis of your property to identify the type of ants and assess the severity of the infestation. Afterwards, he will be able to provide a solution against ants that will be customized to your needs and situation.
Vision Gazon now has the expertise to manage this insect problem with an effective treatment against ants that is also safe for your family and pets. We also manage spiders.
Your lawn probably has chinch bugs if:
Chinch bugs are insects that feed on the sap of grass blades which are used in the composition of lawns.
Appearance: Chinch bugs are very small. The immature bugs are brown while the adults have white wings.
Signs of chinch bugs: The damage caused by chinch bugs appears from late June to August. Affected lawn sections are mainly in sunny areas and have irregularly shaped yellow patches that become larger during the summer. Chinch bug damages are most visible and develop most rapidly during hot, dry weather. Since sunny areas are usually the most affected, chinch bug damages can be mistaken for symptoms of drought.
Sometimes during hot summer weather, you may see adult insects on solid surfaces (such as asphalt) near damaged lawn areas.
It is important to act quickly when the first signs of an infestation are detected because white grubs reproduce rapidly, especially during hot weather.
Chinch bugs feed on the sap of grass blades, and in doing so, inject a substance into the stem to coagulate the water, killing the grass blade.
The lawn will turn brown and die if left unchecked. A severe chinch bug infestation can destroy an entire lawn in one summer.
Our specialist will first perform an analysis of your lawn to determine the severity of the infestation. Afterwards, he will be able to help you find a solution adapted to your needs and situation.
Preventive chinch bug check is performed during spring and fall to act quickly and prevent further spread.
Vision Gazon has developed a solid experience, proven over the years, to manage chinch bug infestations in an efficient and safe manner.
