Landscaping Company in Calgary Stresses the Importance of Hiring a Professional Landscaper

July 10, 2020 - /PressAdvantage/ - Yard Busters Landscaping, a company based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, wants to stress the importance of hiring a professional landscaper. Homeowners who want to do the landscaping themselves will need to have a good knowledge about a number of factors. These include the soil type, grass, plants, landscaping methods, fertilizing techniques, watering, de-weeding, and protecting the garden from diseases. If not, the homeowner would be better off hiring a professional landscaper who knows those things and is well-experienced on how to do them. More about this can be gleaned at

Wayne Van Meter, owner of Yard Busters Landscaping, says, “It really requires a lot of patience when you want to master the various landscaping methods. That is why we often recommend to homeowners to get the services of a professional landscaper. A homeowner will be assured that a professional landscaper has the knowledge, experience, and expertise in taking care of the soil, the garden, and the various plants and trees. They also have the necessary skills in providing practical solutions to various issues such as how to prevent water from draining down the slope.”

Another important factor is how often the grass should be fertilized. The frequency of fertilizing the grass will depend on the current soil conditions, climatic conditions, the volume of nutrients, the types of plants grown in the garden, and the landscape. The first step to take in determining how frequent the grass should be fertilized is to test the soil type and the percentage of organic materials found in the soil that contribute to its fertility. Peats, fens, and bogs are the usual types of soils that are rich in proteins, minerals, and other nutrients. In addition, the water retention capacity of the soil must be determined. This will also depend on the type of soil. A professional landscaper would be able to offer more detailed information regarding fertilizing frequency because he can use high-end technology to assess the water retention capacity and fertility of the soil accurately.

When choosing a fertilizer, it is a good idea to make use of organic fertilizers. These can be produced by mixing various components, such as iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, boron, and nitrogen. Equal volumes of soybean, fish-emulsion, seaweed, and natural compost are then added. The mixture will need to have decomposed for at least two weeks before using it. If processed fertilizer is used, it must be ensured not to contain any chemicals that can cause oxidation in order to protect the soil and grass.

Meanwhile, a liquid fertilizer may offer the most effective way of making the garden highly fertile. This is because liquid fertilizer can be mixed with water and then the water is sprinkled using an automated system. For the most accurate determination of fertilizing frequency, it is usually a good idea to consult with a professional landscaper or gardening expert.

Meanwhile, Yard Busters Landscaping offers a complete line of landscape construction services. These include mulch and sod installation, rock installation, patio and pathway installation, retaining wall systems, decks & fences, raised flower beds, weeping tile installation, bob-cat services, delivery of plants & trees, smart scaping, pet pads, and landscape lighting.

They offer paving stone installation service where the paving stones can be used to create patios and pathways. Meanwhile, sod installation may be needed for a lawn if there is more dead plant matter than grass blades. It is really time for new lawn installation when there is only 40 to 50 percent of the lawn left. They can also build a new fence that may last for many years, using cedar, pine, or pressure treated wood. They can also build landscape garden beds and edging, retaining wall systems, smart-scaping, and pet pads for dogs.

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Aug 12, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns.

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Aug 12, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Aug 12, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

Try something new with uncommonly delicious (and ugly) fruit

Aug 12, 2020

As I savor one of my just-picked American persimmons (Diospyros virginiana), I'm reminded how this fruit — and a few other delectable fruits — would never sell. Why not? Because they're ugly! Although the persimmons hung from the branches as handsome, plump, orange orbs up to a few weeks ago, by now they have shriveled and their skins are darkening to brown and black. The texture and flavor have likewise changed. They once were like dried apricots that have been plumped up in water and then dipped in honey with a dash of spice. Now, they've become mushier, with some...

3-2-1-Cookoff! Astronauts to bake cookies with new test oven

Aug 12, 2020

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Forget reheated, freeze-dried space grub. Astronauts are about to get a new test oven for baking chocolate chip cookies from scratch. The next delivery to the International Space Station — scheduled for liftoff this weekend — includes the Zero G Oven. Chocolate chip cookie dough is already up there, waiting to pop into this small electric oven designed for zero gravity. Sample cookies baked just this week are also launching from Virginia on Northrop Grumman's Cygnus capsule, for the six station astronauts. The experiment explores the possibility of making freshly baked items for space travelers. With...
