Landscaping in Slave Lake

Planning your new raised beds?

Raised garden beds, which may be constructed out of a variety of different materials, have many advantages. The raised sides reduce the problem of soil erosion, as well as allowing for better body mechanics and reduced bending over while gardening. The bottoms of raised beds are open to the ground which promotes good drainage and allows plants to extend their roots further down if needed. Moisture is retained better, and soil compaction is reduced allowing better root growth. If you like to get a head start on your planting, raised beds may be the answer for you, as gardeners are often able to plant earlier inside of a raised bed than in the ground. Soil is typically warmer and better drained being above ground level. 

Laying new sod? Tips to protect your investment

After your new sod is laid, watering thoroughly is very important. By checking under a corner of sod you can assess its need for water, as the soil underneath should not be allowed to dry out during the first two to three weeks. Taking into account other weather factors, generally new sod will require two to three waterings per day to ensure the grass and topsoil remain moist. Once the sod has been established and the roots begin to take, watering can usually be reduced to daily when temperatures are cooler, such as early in the morning or late at night. Gradually taper the waterings down over the next few weeks, watching for signs of stress to the sod. You can usually begin mowing your new sod about 10-21 days after it has been laid, once the roots have been established. Ideally, the grass should be about 4 inches high. Pull up a corner of the sod and check to see that the roots are adhering to the topsoil prior to your first mowing. Use a sharp mower blade and make sure to never cut the grass shorter than 1/3 the height of the blade.
