Tips and Tricks

For a healthy lawn

Tip #1
For a healthy lawn, opt for a polyculture. Did you know that a variety of seeds can reduce soil erosion? For easy maintenance, mix the seeds among those proposed :

  • Fine fescues (grass and dock)
  • White clover
  • Ryegrass
  • Kentucky bluegrass

Tip # 2
For a drought resistant lawn, cut the grass to 8 cm or 3 inches. When mowing, it is also interesting to practice grasscycling. This consists of leaving the grass cuttings on the ground after mowing to provide nutrients. Finally, it is a good idea to over-seed each year. To do this, add compost.

Tip # 3
The environment will also thank you if you limit grassy areas. To do this, sow ground covers:

  • Periwinkle
  • Bugleherb
  • Lily of the valley
  • Lysimachia

Or, use seeds that do not require mowing such as :

  • White clover
  • Bird's-foot trefoil
  • Creeping thyme
  • Violets
  • Wild strawberry
  • Sedum
  • Spring bulbs

Finally, in May, push back the first lawn mowing. Leave the dandelions growing so that the pollinating insects can start the season well.

Vegetation Control

To reduce the risk of short circuits and damage to the electrical distribution system, Hydro-Québec needs to trim branches near medium-voltage lines and cut down diseased or unstable trees that are at risk of falling on power lines.
