Eco-yards Lawn Installation
There still can be a place for lawn.
We recommend replacing your lawn with hardy, native grasses that require little water and grow low so they don’t even need to be mowed. These grasses also grow well here and out-compete weeds.
We believe that when it comes to a lawn, less is more.
Lawns take more work than most other types of landscapes. A beautiful space filled with beds of flowers, trees, shrubs and native plants are easier and much better for the environment. These other plantings provide more diversity in the ecosystem, feed pollinating insects, and soak up more moisture which helps restore underground water aquifers.
Seeding your lawn from scratch
No existing lawn? No problem. We can install a new eco-friendly lawn with hardy grass that will not need to be mowed. Because these indigenous grasses already thrive here, they require much less water. All of our new eco-friendly lawns are installed using rich, weed-free composted soil.
We seed in Spring or Fall and will come once or twice more to fill in any patchy areas. Usually, we use Sheep’s Fescue grass as it grows only 6 to 8 inches high and then lays down so need not be mowed. It is lush, fine and very green. As it grows in a bunch – it will not spread by roots into your flower beds and yet is even to walk on. Sheep’s Fescue looks great as a lawn and will fit in with your neighbours’ lawns just fine. With roots that go 6-8 inches deep, this grass must be seeded as it cannot be found as a sod that can be laid.
We’ll visit your site to do an estimate for seeding your eco-friendly lawn.
After Laureen overseeded our lawn, the grass seemed to green up faster than anyone else’s. It looked thicker and lusher. I’ve only had the Eco-yards™ Spray for one year and the grass looks stronger and greener – I’m going to continue the serviceCindy T.
