Nitrogen, Potassium, Phosphorous…simple right?
These are the building blocks of all fertilizers used on turf. Which ratio, at what time, and how often, is the hard part. We will provide your lawn with all the nutrients, at the right times, without drying out or scorching your lawn. All of our packages start with this cornerstone of lawn health providing essential macronutrients in a slow-release formula.
On to the tough stuff…weeds. If you’re reading this, we imagine you’ve had your battle with weeds in the past. Let us help you win that battle once and for all. With all of our programs, we service your property season long with unlimited spot treatments until you are happy with your weed free lawn.
The best cure for weeds? More grass!
Overseeding your lawn will provide your root system with a thicker, fuller turf built to choke out weeds before they can start. We’ll spread our hybrid grass seed to add more blade development to your lawn.
Healthy lawns don’t start at the grass blade, they begin deep in your soil. First thing we need to do is set your soil up for growth.
The soil balance in your lawn is the most important amendment we can make to provide your turf with perfect growing conditions. Most lawns in our area sit at around 8 on the pH scale (a little too basic). Along with heavy clay, this is why we have such tough growing conditions.
Using our humic acid formula, we can get your lawn right into that pH sweet spot where plant life and beneficial organisms thrive. Along with this, break down heavy clay’s and increase the carbon essential for plant growth.
Your grass will access minerals, recovering any deficiencies it may have developed over the years.
Strange right? It may seem odd, but this beneficial powerhouse from the sea is exactly what lawns in Alberta need! You may have heard sea kelp as the solution to heat stress in drier, hotter climates, here’s why:
Chalked full of minerals, anti-oxidants, and cytokinin, sea kelp is perfect for beating the heat.
We spray at the start of the hot/dry season in Alberta to:

Included in all of our fertilizer blends is a trace amount of elemental sulphur. Like with our Humic acid treatments, elemental sulphur is a potent tool for bringing your pH balance in line with ideal growing conditions.
Our packages are set up to address the average lawn in your city. Want a specialized approach? We can start with a soil test to find out the pH, micronutrients, and macronutrients.
We’ll take several samples from each of the zones on your property to find out what the health and nutrient balance is. Then, we’ll send it off to a lab with a complete analysis of your lawn’s health.
From there we can customize a turf program to fit your lawn.
Core aeration is the process of removing small cores of soil from your lawn. This reduces soil compaction, allows more air and water to enter deep into your lawn and promotes root growth. Other benefits of Core Aeration are:
There are many types of aeration out there on the market, however, coring is the only effective way to reduce compaction.
Spike/foot aerators spread soil, but without coring to allow displaced soil to settle, they will leave it more compacted. At Clover we use deep-tine core aerators to fully remove deep cores and allow your grass to spread out and breath.
We want your grass growing on your lawn. Not your patio, walkways, fireplaces, or your back alley. Call us today for a quote on getting your vegetation under control.
Top dress your lawn for an additional cost based on square footage.
We add a thin layer of loam, compost, or garden soil. Through this process, your lawn will be improved by:

At Clover Landscaping we offer individual products or multiple product packages containing herbicides, bio-stimulants, and organic options.
Our weed control program starts in early spring when we are starting to show strong growth and it finishes in late fall as your lawn begins to go dormant.
Broadleaf plants (also called "broad-leaved") are those with leaves that have a flat, relatively broad surface. This surface is often marked with a network of prominent veins. These botanical characteristics distinguish them from plants with needle-like, awl-like, scale-like, or blade-like leaves.
Humic acid is a group of molecules that bind to plants, and help roots receive water and nutrients.
Humic acid increases nutrient uptake, drought tolerance, and seed germination. It increases the microbial activity in the soil, making it an excellent root stimulator.
Sea kelp is an organic source of plant food with more than 70 micronutrients. When used on plants, it promotes foliage and blooms, enlarges chloroplasts, and optimizes cell processes.
We use a number of different product names for our weed control. They are most commonly known as “Trillion” or “Par III”.
Weeds Controlled: Dandelions, plantain, black medick (yellow clover), buttercup, chickweed, clover, English daisy, ground daisy, ground ivy (creeping Charlie, knotweed, ironweed), poison ivy, ragweed, shepherd's-purse, bedstraw, heal-all, devil's paint brush.
May and early June, as well as late August and September. We apply Trillion when weeds are actively growing and are not under stress.
A slight yellowing on weeds will occur, then they will begin to disappear after about seven to ten days.
Please do not water grass within 24 hours of application. Our herbicide needs to absorb into the weed which takes anywhere from 6-12 hours depending on weather conditions.
Wait 24 to 48 hours after applying the herbicide to mow.
Please allow the herbicide to get to work. If you have a weed pop up after two weeks give us a call and we will come treat the problem area.
Please allow for up to ten days for our application to begin to work. If you believe the application hasn’t worked please give us a call and we will come take a look.
Children and pets should be kept off the area for at least one day.
Yes, we request you and your family stay off of your lawn for 24 hours after an application to allow it to properly absorb into the weeds.
Please ensure all pets are inside, and your lawn is clear of any obstructions (dog droppings, leaves, toys) which would impede our service technicians from completing an application.
Give us a call and we will come treat the target area.
Nope! We will notify you prior to your appointment. As long as the property is accessible, we will be in and out and notify you with post care instructions.
Yes, we will notify you prior to your scheduled appointment date.
