Unlimited Weed Control includes a full blanket treatment to stop weeds in their tracks and spot treatments with each subsequent visit. If you ever have weeds in your lawn popping up, don’t hesitate to call us to schedule a FREE service visit.

Season Long Fertilizer will give your lawn the nutrition it needs to thrive. Your lawn will have service visits scheduled throughout the season for the applications of very high-quality, slow-release, granular fertilizer that is designed for the time of year it is applied. If you are shopping around, be sure to know what you are getting with a “season-long” fertilizer package.

Summer Booster is an extra service during the summer. This granular treatment will replenish nutrients in the soil to help your lawn perform the best it can during the summer. Your lawn will get a boost by getting over 70 micro-nutrients during this application. This service will help your lawn stay green all summer.

A Core Aeration will help your lawn by loosening the soil by removing cores from the turf.

Overseeding will help thicken up your lawn by incorporating new grass seed into your existing turf. Unlike the grass areas found in natural settings, urban lawns do not get a chance to re-seed themselves.

Soil Enhancer is an organic application that is applied in granular form. It contains humic acid and other organics that will enhance your lawn by increasing root growth, allowing for higher nutrient uptake, increasing microbiobial activity, improving soil quality, breaking down clay and increasing water retention.

what should I expect?

What is season-long fertilizer & unlimited weed control?

A season-long fertilizer package is a multi-visit program that will give your lawn the required amount of nutrients throughout the entire season. This program may be adjusted depending on the time of year you start the program. Unlimited weed control is a multi-visit program is guaranteed to zap any weeds on your lawn for the entire season. Visits will be automatically scheduled and if you have any weeds pop up between visits, all you have to do is contact us and book a free service call.

All our packages include both a season-long fertilizer & unlimited weed control!

What do I receive during each service?

Spring Fertilizer Application:
In the spring, you will receive a granular fertilizer application. This fertilizer is formulated for the spring and will help green up your lawn after winter dormancy. Depending on when you sign up, this treatment may be done at the same time as the full blanket weed control application.

Full Blanket Weed Control Application:
Every year in Calgary, near the end of May, dandelions start to pop up everywhere and they are a complete nuisance. At this time, you will receive a full blanket weed control treatment which is applied by a technician using a truck-mounted sprayer and a long hose so that we can reach every area of your lawn, right to the edges. This weed control treatment will stop weeds in their tracks.

Summer Fertilizer Application:
In the summer you will receive a granular fertilizer application specifically designed for this time. The fertilizer application is slow-release and packed full of beneficial nutrients to help your lawn through the summer.

Fall Fertilizer Application:
The fall is one of the most important times of the year to feed your lawn. As summer begins to wind down, your lawn will be preparing for winter dormancy. This application is specifically formulated for the autumn and gives your lawn everything it needs before winter. In the fall, the lawn will be sending all its energy to the roots. This application will help your lawn grow deep, strong roots to help it survive over the winter and be one of the first lawns to green up in the spring.

Your package can include:

Summer Booster
The summer booster is a very important fertilizer application applied earlier in the summer. This application is important to keep your lawn green and healthy when the summer temperatures start to rise. This application will give your lawn an extra boost before the temperatures rise and help to thicken up the lawn before the heat of summer.

Aeration
Lawns become compacted over the year, and they need an annual aeration to keep it performing well. You will receive an aeration that will pull cores of soil out of your turf and deposit them on top of the lawn to make the soil less compacted and help grow deeper roots. Aerations can be done in either the spring or the fall as both of those times are a great time for this service.

Overseeding
In an urban environment, lawns do not get the chance to re-seed themselves like they do in the wild. Overseeding will allow you to incorporate new grass seeds into an existing lawn. This application will help fill in bare areas, thicken your lawn, and give your lawn more longevity.

Soil Enhancer
The Soil Enhancer application will make your soil a soft, nutrient-rich environment for your lawn to thrive. This is a granular application and once watered in, it will dissolve into thousands of micro-particles of rich carbon and humic acid. This application will improve your soil by increasing microbial activity, improving soil quality, breaking down clay and increasing water retention and your lawn will benefit by increasing root growth which allows for higher nutrient uptake.

Will I know that you are coming?

Before your service – You will receive an email the day before your service to let you know that you are scheduled. No one needs to be home, just make sure the lawn is free of any obstacles like toys and dog waste and that your gates are unlocked.

After your service – We will put a sign in your lawn and leave a service card on your door letting you know which services were completed and any post-care instructions.

Tell me more about

weed control & fertilizer:

Are these services safe for pets and kids?
Yes. All the products we use are safe for pets and kids. We just ask, after a weed control treatment, please stay off lawn until it is dry (including pets). Once the product is dry, you can use your lawn as usual. If it’s warm and sunny out, it can dry in just a couple hours. We take safety seriously, so we only use products that are approved by Health Canada and comply with the Pest Control Products Act. These products are also registered for use on residential properties.

Is it safe for bees?
Bees are one of the most important animals on earth, and we want to protect them. Our programs always have the safety of bees at the top of our minds. Our programs will Not Harm Bees!

When will I see results from the weed control application?
The weed control application will start to work right away, and you will notice the weeds starting to wilt within 24 hours. It can take between 1-2 weeks or a few lawn mowings for the weeds to disappear completely.

What types of weeds do you control?
We can control any “broadleaf weed” in your lawn. The most common weeds that we see in lawns are dandelions, clover and thistle.
Do you control weeds everywhere on my property?
Our weed control and fertilizer packages are for your lawn area only. We do not treat any garden bed areas as we do not want to harm any plants that are not weeds. Our weed control treatment is specially designed to control the weeds in your lawn without harming the grass.

Do you just apply fertilizers from Home Depot or Lowe’s?
Absolutely not! The fertilizers that we use are the most premium fertilizers that are available. They are custom blended formulas that are made for lawns in Calgary and are the safest. The fertilizer that you can buy from the box stores in Calgary cannot compare in quality and longevity to ours. We are always improving our fertilizer blends and programs to make sure our clients are getting the best results with their programs.

So not all fertilizers are made equal?
No. There are many fertilizers out there and most are marketed to homeowners. These readily available fertilizers are sold nationwide and are not formulated properly for our region. Homeowner grade fertilizers are lower quality and there is increased risk of damage to your lawn by improper use. The coating used on our fertilizer is high quality and provides a gentle, long feeding -you can be sure that you will get a healthy green lawn.

Are you licenced to do this?
Yes, Cougarstone Lawn Care holds all necessary licenses and insurance required to apply weed control and fertilizer products in Calgary. We are registered and in good standing with the Province of Alberta. When you hire us, you can be confident that we are certified professionals.

Do you “auto-renew” my package for the following year?
No, your package will not be automatically renewed. You will receive a quick reminder when it is time to renew your package. We do not want to bind you to any “contract” or “auto-renew program” that is impossible to get out of. As long as you are happy to receive our service, we are happy to provide it.

I want my lawn to be green and weed-free, can I just do the program for one year?
Sure, our program will help you get a greener and weed-free lawn from when you first start. It is important to know that your lawn needs nutrients constantly to thrive and a regular weed control program to keep it weed-free. This program is meant to be used year after year to keep your lawn growing and looking its best. The longer the program is used, the better your soil will be, creating an amazing environment for your lawn to thrive. The stronger and healthier your lawn, the fewer weeds you will get germinating in the future.

How do I get the best results from

my season-long fertilizing package?

A season-long fertilizer package
Our fertilizers and weed control products are amazing and effective, but to get the best results, a proper mowing and watering schedule should be followed.

Watering – Proper watering is extremely important for maintaining the health of your lawn. Without watering, keeping a lush lawn will be very difficult. Our lawn here in the Calgary climate requires a minimum of 1 inch of water per week. Remember, just like you, your lawn needs water to survive and thrive.

Mowing – Having the proper mowing schedule and techniques are important for maintaining a lush lawn. Your lawn should be mowed once a week and never remove more than 1/3 of the length of the grass blade at a time. Your lawn should be cut no shorter than 3 inches in height during the growing season.
We want you to succeed with our programs, so we created a handy guide to teach you the proper way to care for your lawn in our learning centre – just click here.
