Although gardening and landscaping in Calgary ought to be a fun way to enjoy the outdoors during spring, it can get a little stressful, especially when trying to figure out the best time and sequence to do all your lawn care activities. Still, with the right spring lawn care schedule, this stress will quickly fade away.

A Simple Calgary Landscaping Schedule for Spring

One of the best resources for deciding on a spring lawn care schedule is the City of Calgary’s website. The city wants to ensure that people have all the information necessary to maintain their lawns, as it helps the city prevent invasive species from being planted and unattractive or dangerous lawns from becoming a consistent problem. They even offer different gardening guides for lawns with different sun coverage. 

The City of Calgary’s guide provides a helpful schedule which includes the following activities:

  1. mowing
  2. aerating
  3. dethatching
  4. fertilizing
  5. seeding
  6. sodding 

Each of these activities is necessary for successful landscaping in Calgary, and the order they are in is generally considered the best way to approach the maintenance. However, we would also include a few other steps that are not listed here.

For instance, at the start of the list should be yearly equipment maintenance and inventory. You want to ensure your lawnmower is oiled, fueled and ready for the season. Similarly, it helps to inventory the tools, seeds and materials you have so that you know what you need to restock or use up this spring. 

Additionally, we would recommend adding weeding to the end of the list. You’ll probably find some weeds as you go about the other activities, but once everything is planted, and in place, you’ll want to keep an eye out for weeds too. This will prevent your hard work from being overrun by undesirable plant species.
