The "Price" of Lawn Care
Good! You have decided to invest in lawn care. It is the best use of your time and money. Your lawn is the largest horticultural feature of your property. It makes sense to spend a small fee to maintain it. Now you don’t have to buy fertilizers and equipment. No need to buy it, store it, know when to apply it and how much to apply, or maintain any equipment.
Do your research and you'll discover that not all lawns or lawn care companies are the same. You have chosen us. We appreciate your business. We want you to stay with us a long time so we can improve your lawn each and every year with our treatments. We know an educated client stays with us for what we provide - the science, the work. and the reasonable price. Our website has lots of information about lawn care. Please read it and compare us to our competitors.

Exclusive and unique expertise, all organic. No other company offers all this. We study turf at the university level - weeds, insects, diseases, grass seed and soils. Our organic methods take time but after a few seasons, both the soil and turf are strong. Our motto – “a thick, green and healthy lawn with as few weeds as possible”. Proper lawn care is a challenge. Since the 2008 provincial ban only farms and golf courses have chemicals. There are no legal 100% effective weed killers. The war against grubs and invasive species is harder than ever. The weather is at its most unpredictable, with a record-breaking drought in 2016 and record-breaking rain fall in April 2017.
No one else does this: we pull weeds, every visit, especially the seed-bearing weeds. The result is a big and on-going improvement in your lawn. We also use Fiesta and horticultural vinegar to control weeds. We like our work and we take our time to do a good job for you.
Our Reasonable Prices
Pricing must be fair for both of us! Please consider our on-going expenses: 2 man teams, vans, equipment- spreaders, mowers, trimmers, aerators, sprayers, soil testing equipment, vehicle and $5 million property liability insurance, office overhead, maintenance, gas, taxes, business license, wages, workmen‘s compensation, trips to the suppliers - horticultural memberships and education.
You will find others who charge more and charge less. The “low-ballers” and student workers often just disappear before the season is over. Others want to be paid in cash, or have no business license or insurance. We strive to provide the best prices but prices will go up each year as our costs increase. FOR OUR MUTUAL HAPPINESS AND SUCCESS, WE HAVE TO BE A GOOD FIT. Please see, terms and conditions on our website.
I am grateful for your business and always interested in your comments.

The Kensington Advantage
Thank you for taking the time to consider us. We are so glad you have decided to have a nice lawn. It makes sense to maintain the investment in your property, especially now that the average home is worth at least one million dollars! The major horticultural feature of most properties is the lawn, that’s curb appeal, the first impression people will see. You will find a “nice” looking lawn may not be a healthy lawn and that lawn care companies are not all the same! We are better and different. Why?
You don’t know—what you don’t know! We help you understand our exclusive organic methods, so you know, you are getting both a nice lawn and more importantly a healthy lawn. Unlike most, we use non-toxic, safe and natural products, people and pet friendly and our weed-pulling is 100% effective. We have always been organic even before the 2008 provincial ban, that brought increased awareness of toxic pesticides. Our 3 lawn care plans provide unique treatments, based on years of organic research with the leading turf universities and agricultural experts, decades of experience with fertilizers, soils, amendments, weeds, insects, diseases, mowing, watering and now climate change. We do all this for you. Provide and Enjoy: We establish and maintain a safe, thick, green, healthy, sustainable, organic lawn with as few weeds as possible. Healthy soil is vital. You save time and can enjoy your lawn and more of your summer. Inform and Inspire: Information-there is a lot following, if it’s too much, just consider the prices, if not -please enjoy the read! We will monitor, diagnose and maintain your lawn.
Most people don’t know or ignore these facts. We know a lot more about lawns, today yet the old -time “normal” treatments, are still widely used, and are very bad! We are responsible ecology stewards who support the ban. We now face the challenges of climate change. It’s getting hotter and harder to have a nice lawn. Water/rain is vital! We are a team, always available to walk your property with you. Pay in the spring, please confirm asap. Pay by Cheque, Interact, gift cards, flexible payments.
