How To Take Care of Commercial Lawns & Property

Beautiful lawns and landscaping have a strong impact on a business’s curb appeal. Not only do they provide a welcoming entrance to a business, but also provide a relaxing atmosphere for employees to enjoy.

Taking care of your commercial lawn in Calgary or Edmonton is a must if you want to have a strong first impression. A well-maintained lawn will not only improve the overall appearance of your property but can also help boost customer satisfaction and increase trust in your brand.

Business owners can neglect Lawns because they are unaware of the steps that need to be taken to keep them looking healthy and green, or because they are short on the time required to keep lawns healthy. If you want your lawn to look great all year round, then here are some tips on how to take care of commercial lawns properly:

Mowing & Edging

Commercial lawns need to be mowed and edged on a regular basis. Your mower should be properly maintained and adjusted for the height of cut you want. The height of cut will vary depending on the type of grass you have, but it should never exceed 1 3/4”. If you mow too low, you will damage the roots and make your lawn more susceptible to disease and insect infestation. You should also trim around sidewalks, driveways, and other objects for that clean-cut look.


Watering is also an important aspect of maintaining a healthy and attractive commercial lawn. Most turfgrasses need 1 to 2 inches of water per week during the growing season. The length of time needed to achieve this varies depending on soil type, weather conditions, and other factors.

The best way to determine how much water your lawn needs is to test the soil with a moisture meter or by digging a hole in the ground near a sprinkler head. The goal is to keep the top 4 inches of soil moist at all times. If water penetrates easily into the ground, you don’t need to water as often; if it doesn’t, then you need to water more frequently.


Lawns need to be fertilized throughout the year, especially if they have been newly seeded or resodded. It takes time for grasses to establish themselves, so it’s important to apply fertilizer at least four times before they reach maturity. This will give them time to establish roots and grow strong enough so that they can withstand stress from pests, weather and other environmental factors.

Bed Maintenance

Lawns aren’t the only part of your property which benefit from regular maintenance, garden beds also need care on an ongoing basis. In order for plants and flowers to thrive, weeding and debris removal needs to be done regularly, as well as deadheading flowers and cultivating (turning) the soil. It also helps to maintain that picture-perfect look to use a hard edger to re-form and re-define all the bed edges.

Tree & Hedge Trimming

Maintaining the trees and hedges on your property shouldn’t be overlooked either. It’s important to shape & trim the new growth to maintain the height & width of your plants. Regular trimming will help keep your trees healthy by providing the proper spacing for branches and foliage. This can also help propagate sunlight and provide better air circulation for low-lying plants.

Hire a reliable lawn care service provider

Lawns require regular maintenance and care. You may not be able to afford the time or skill needed for this, so hiring a professional lawn care service provider is the best way to ensure your lawn looks great at all times. With such a service provider, you don’t need to worry about spending hours on your property doing the mowing and other tasks. You can focus on other things while they do all the work for you.
