Landscaping Company in Calgary Stresses the Importance of Hiring a Professional Landscaper

Yard Busters Landscaping, a company based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, wants to stress the importance of hiring a professional landscaper. Homeowners who want to do the landscaping themselves will need to have a good knowledge about a number of factors. These include the soil type, grass, plants, landscaping methods, fertilizing techniques, watering, de-weeding, and protecting the garden from diseases. If not, the homeowner would be better off hiring a professional landscaper who knows those things and is well-experienced on how to do them. More about this can be gleaned at

Wayne Van Meter, owner of Yard Busters Landscaping, says, “It really requires a lot of patience when you want to master the various landscaping methods. That is why we often recommend to homeowners to get the services of a professional landscaper. A homeowner will be assured that a professional landscaper has the knowledge, experience, and expertise in taking care of the soil, the garden, and the various plants and trees. They also have the necessary skills in providing practical solutions to various issues such as how to prevent water from draining down the slope.”

Another important factor is how often the grass should be fertilized. The frequency of fertilizing the grass will depend on the current soil conditions, climatic conditions, the volume of nutrients, the types of plants grown in the garden, and the landscape. The first step to take in determining how frequent the grass should be fertilized is to test the soil type and the percentage of organic materials found in the soil that contribute to its fertility. Peats, fens, and bogs are the usual types of soils that are rich in proteins, minerals, and other nutrients. In addition, the water retention capacity of the soil must be determined. This will also depend on the type of soil. A professional landscaper would be able to offer more detailed information regarding fertilizing frequency because he can use high-end technology to assess the water retention capacity and fertility of the soil accurately.

When choosing a fertilizer, it is a good idea to make use of organic fertilizers. These can be produced by mixing various components, such as iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, boron, and nitrogen. Equal volumes of soybean, fish-emulsion, seaweed, and natural compost are then added. The mixture will need to have decomposed for at least two weeks before using it. If processed fertilizer is used, it must be ensured not to contain any chemicals that can cause oxidation in order to protect the soil and grass.

Meanwhile, a liquid fertilizer may offer the most effective way of making the garden highly fertile. This is because liquid fertilizer can be mixed with water and then the water is sprinkled using an automated system. For the most accurate determination of fertilizing frequency, it is usually a good idea to consult with a professional landscaper or gardening expert.
