With the pesticide ban effective throughout Ontario in the spring of 2009, Wagner Lawn Care has developed a specific program to help keep lawns green and healthy.
In our “GREEN” Program, we have included regular granular fertilizings using a high quality, slow-release nitrogen fertilizer. Wagner uses a specially blended 20-0-20 fertilizer with 50% slow-released nitrogen. We do not have any phosphorous in our fertilizers as soil tests we have done throughout our region show little or no phosphorous is required. As well, phosphorous in fertilizers is a major cause of algae issues in our lakes and rivers, so we can use our fertilizer around bodies of water with little impact on the environment.
A minimum of two times per season (usually three times), we will also utilize the new weed spray “FIESTA”. Recently approved by Health Canada and the Ontario Ministry of Environment, Fiesta is a derivative of iron, which occurs in nature. It kills many broadleaf weeds common in lawns in our area, including dandelion, plantain, Canada thistle, and chickweed. Fiesta works quickly and controls down to the root, with no need to water after spraying….plus it is water based so has no unpleasant odour! You’ll just need to stay off the lawn after the application until the spray dries!
Our exclusive “Bio-stimulant” spray will round out a fantastic six step GREEN Program for your lawn!
