    Default LF: Lawn Fix Up Help

    Hi,

    Was looking to see if there is someone or knows of someone decent priced to work on my yard?
    I was looking to have my yard over seeded, also there is a cement walk way from the front leading to the back yard and along the 2 sides there is a rock trail. The plastic underneath along the rock trail must have gave, weed and grass is spurting out. Sucks buying a place in the winter when you can't see how the lawn is

    Pls PM or post of anyone

    Try calling Eye Candy Landscaping (403 818 4153). They're the company that we sub out all of our lanscape work to and we think they're great.

    Tell them that Luke from Lizard Trails gave you the number and they'll also give you a discount.

    Thanks Dorpdat, I'll give them a shout and get them by to see what they can do for me

    I've thought about DIY Adidas but considering the hours I work and the hours that would be needed to remove all the rocks and not having a truck or tools to remove them just might not work. The lawn is not as small as you think

    Thanks!

    My buddy did landscaping for a while (not a pro or very experienced) but considering your not building a side wall, 2 people should be able to get the job done in one day given that material is ready.

    if you could give me some more details maybe me and my friend could do a side job for a lil extra cash

    Aerate and overseed. (rent from Home Depot, throw grass seed all over).

    Add top dressing. Spread out evenly over grass, should see 50/50 grass and top dressing. (buy a bag of it for Home Deopt, all it is is healthy top soil).

    Water regularly.

    Buy a huge thing of round up and spray along the rocks to kill grass that is growing up. Round Up kills everything green, so keep it off of the main lawn.

    -Maybe I should start a landscaping business on the side?? Then I could charge money for this info.
