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
We have developed a complete, safe, lawn care plan to consistently maintain a healthy, green, and thick lawn. We start by looking at the roots and soil, and treat the lawn 6 times, as early as April, as late as October. We monitor, document and treat each lawn individually.
We call it the Kensington Advantage Lawn Care Plan. Our system is unique, offering inspection, reporting, and a treatment process. No two lawns are the same. With many years experience and education we understand turf and soil science. To thrive, grass and plants, like people, need a balanced and healthy diet. In the past, it was thought that chemicals were the answer. Now we know that the risks from chemical exposure are not worth the benefits. We can be thankful for the Ontario Pesticide Ban of 2008. Our unique plan is safe, natural and sustainable.

Both lawn care plans include complete coverage - spring, summer, and fall - normally from April to October, after last frost and before first frost. Start and finish dates depend on correct horticultural conditions. Recently we experienced record-breaking weather! A drought in 2016 and huge rainfall in April 2017. In these conditions, lawns cannot be cut or treated.
Both plans include an assessment, consultation, PH and soil check, aeration or de-thatch, over seeding, addition of enriched topsoil, organic fertilizers, and weed controls (pulling, horticultural vinegar and Fiesta). We check for weeds, insects, and disease and leave you a report. We have spent years and developed unique and exclusive plans and will continue to search for materials and procedure to give you a great lawn. No other company offers this level of expertise or service. Prices above are for average lawns, average size and conditions. Larger or damaged lawns will cost more.
