The Best Weed Control Management In Barrie

Nothing ruins a perfectly manicured lawn, like those you see around the Holly and Ardagh neighbourhoods, than weeds. They are a blemish that can choke out the beautiful healthy grass. At LawnSavers, your top lawn care weed control solution in Barrie, we understand that the best way to control weeds is a well-nourished lawn.

Many pesticides have been banned by the Ontario government But LawnSavers has solutions! At LawnSavers, as grass experts, we pride ourselves on using products that are safe for your family and are continually testing currently available weed control products to make sure our Barrie lawn care customers are receiving the most effective weed management possible. We have found a new product, Fiesta®, provides the most effective results. It has become our go-to pesticide for a weed management program near you in Barrie and throughout Southern Ontario.

This weed control product is very effective on a wide variety of broad-leaved weeds, can be applied in a wide range of temperatures, and best of all, it does not require watering to be effective.  It works especially well when it is used as part of a comprehensive healthy lawn program. Products like Beet Juice and Corn Gluten are not as effective and serve only to fertilize your lawn and weeds at best.

Best Lawn Pest Defense in Barrie, ON

To keep Barrie’s pesky lawn invaders at bay, start with a strong defense: nourish your lawn with proper watering, fertilizing, and mowing. Regularly scout for telltale signs like brown patches and dead areas, and act fast when you see insect activity.  Call our team for an evaluation and we can make your worries (and those pesky pests) disappear.

Top Offending Lawn Pests in Barrie:

  • Grubs: White, grub-like larvae of beetles like Japanese beetles and June bugs. They feed on grass roots, causing brown patches and dead areas. They’re most active in late summer and early fall.
  • Sod webworms: Cream-colored caterpillars that live in silken tunnels just below the soil surface. They feed on grass clippings and blades, leaving behind bare patches with a spongy feel. Look for moths fluttering at dusk for signs of infestation.
  • Chinch bugs: Black and white bugs that suck juices from grass blades, causing yellowing and wilting. They thrive in hot, dry weather and often target stressed lawns. Look for irregular yellowing patches, especially near sidewalks or driveways.
  • Armyworms: Green or brown caterpillars that move in large groups, devouring everything in their path. They’re more common in late summer and early fall and can quickly devastate large areas of lawn. Check for signs of feeding damage (irregularly chewed blades) and large groups of caterpillars.

Soil Composition and Lawn Care in Barrie

The soil composition in Barrie, Ontario, is primarily influenced by two factors: parent material and drainage characteristics.  Barrie’s soil is basically formed by two types of parent material that lead to a combination of clay, silt, sand and gravel. A marine influence adds more sand into the mix – with a bit of a salt influence happening closer to shoreline along Lake Simcoe.

Lawn & Soil Drainage Characteristics:

  • Poorly drained: Much of Barrie’s soil is classified as Gleysolic, meaning it has poor drainage due to a high water table or impermeable clay layer. This is evident in low-lying areas and near water bodies.
  • Well-drained: Some areas, particularly on slopes and ridges, have well-drained soils classified as Brunisolic. These soils allow water to percolate more freely.

If your lawn has areas of standing water, high spots with poor grass growth – or just looks lackluster overall – its important to have an expert take a look at a variety of possibilities, including soil composition, drainage, lawn pests, and watering efficiency!

Barrie, ON Watering Restrictions, Green Lawns, And Expert Advice

Barrie’s lawn watering restrictions are always in effect for anyone connected to the municipal water supply.  Residents with even/odd addresses can only water on even/odd days between 6pm and 8am.  There is the potential for additional restrictions during peak use periods or water supply issues. These could include complete watering bans.  You can track and learn more about watering restrictions for Barrie and nearby towns on our watering and water ban information page.

Watering & The Impact on Lawn Care

Water restrictions can create a limited watering window, which can make maintenance of a lush lawn more challenging, especially during hot summer weeks.  This can increase the stress on your lawn and open the door for disease, pest, and heat damage.  Luckily, a few adjustments to your watering routine can make a big difference.  A deeper water, less frequently, is actually better for your lawn.  Adding a rain barrel can help you collect water for maintaining your flower planters, garden & bushes through the dry months in Barrie.  Also a healthy lawn going into the dry season is much easier to maintain than trying to make a less-than-lush lawn great during a dry spell.

Our team of experts offers the following benefits when you bring us on board to help you create & maintain a healthy lawn: 

  • Professional knowledge: We understand local regulations and best practices for water-efficient lawn care.
  • Time-saving: We’ll take care of fertilizing, pest control, and other maintenance tasks, freeing up your time and eliminating your need to store less effective big box store fertilizer and chemicals – and the equipment to apply them..
  • Expert advice: Can recommend drought-resistant plants, watering strategies, and other water-saving solutions.

Overall, Barrie’s lawn watering restrictions require residents to be mindful of their water usage and consider alternative approaches to lawn care. Hiring our team of expert lawn care professionals will help you adapt these restrictions while maintaining a healthy lawn.
