With medical issues, we are unable to take care of our lawn this year. I emailed Property Werks and Cristine responded almost immediately. I booked them for a yard clean and mowing/shoveling for the year. Tara did an amazing job on the yard cleanup, took photos and Cristine emailed them to me letting me know that it was complete. They were in the yard first thing in the morning, no waiting at all. I have the utmost confidence in them for taking care of our property over the next year.

This company did both Lawn moving/maintenance and show removal for me for the past 6 to 8 years. Never had a problem. during summer months they were there once aweek cutting the grass and during the winter months they were there right after every major snow fall. Excellent crew staff. Always very friendly. I give this company 5 stars plus. Keep the great work up you do Property Werks

I have had Property Werks maintain my yard and sidewalks for the past three years now. They astound me every year with the quality of their work, as well as the customer service I receive. Cristine in the office is a pleasure to talk with. I also had a fence built from Property Werks last summer. It went up perfectly and quickly. I was worried because I have a dog and I didn't want the yard to be open for very long. Sean assured me that the fence would be done in only a few days and was very courteous and respectful of my concerns. I love the look of my yard and I think anyone looking to help spruce up their yard, look no further than Property Werks!

I hired your service for my elderly parents and they rave about your team all the time. It gives me peace of mind knowing they will not fall coming out the house from the front or going to their garage.Best money I spend each month. Winter or summerBest customer service as well - I really appreciate the email updates during snow events so I know when to expect the team at the house.One of the best run companies I have worked with in a long time.

I used this company for my recent spring clean up April 8, 2021. I have hired different companies for the last three or four years and I have always been disappointed with the quality or they damaged my tree trunk. This company and Todd T specifically, did a fantastic job. The lawn looked great after he finished. The cleanest and best it’s ever been done. He had a challenge with the aerator so he couldn’t finish that on the first day but they emailed to inform me and came two days later. Everything was done to a high standard and I’m very picky. Also I dealt with Christine when booking the service which was very easy to do online. I had to call her after because I decided I wanted to add the aeration and she was great to deal with and got things booked very soon after I called. On the whole I’m very impressed with the customer service and the quality of the spring cleanup. I will definitely use them again in the future.

Lawn care service FAQ

I'm on vacation or at work, how will I know the work was done?
You will automatically receive a notification once the work is completed with pictures of your freshly mowed lawn.
You were here last Tuesday, Why didn't you come this Tuesday?
Unfortunately we can't mow your grass when it's soaking wet so sometimes we have to adjust your schedule around the weather. Please allow a day or two on either side of your usual service day.
Where do the grass clippings go?
Up to you! You can choose to have us leave them on the lawn as mulch, put them in the green bin to be removed by the city, or we can bag and remove them. Leaving the clippings on your lawn returns nutrients to the soil, discourages weeds and keeps moisture – like a free fertilizer!
Can you mow my overgrown lawn?
Sure we can! Depending on the height we'll have to make multiple passes with the mower. This initial mow can take sometimes 3x or 4x longer to complete than a maintenance mow, so there is a one-time surcharge depending on just how tall it is.
My home is for sale, can you maintain the yard until it sells?
We can! It's a great idea to keep your yard looking sharp while it is for sale to make the best first impression for your potential buyers, as Justin Havre, a real estate professional, explains here.
Can you do my fertilizer treatments too?
We don't specialize in fetilizer and weed control, but in Calgary we’ve partnered with YardDawgs this year. Send us a note and we'll put your in touch!
What's your cancellation policy?
There's no penalty for cancelling your service. Come and go as you wish, we're not trying to force you into anything. Of course some heads up is always appreciated.
Is there a grass cutting Bylaw?
Under The City of Calgary's Community Standards Bylaw, private property owners must ensure that grass does not exceed 15 cm (six inches) in height. In Edmonton residents are not allowed to have "unkempt grass or weeds higher than 10 centimetres". For our clients in Ottawa "the owner or occupant shall clear the lands of such heavy undergrowth, long grass or weeds so as to be consistent with the surrounding environment"
You missed a spot!
Oops! Please send us a quick note at service@propertywerks.ca so we can come fix it.

Healthy grass FAQ

When is it time to start cutting your grass in OAKVILLE?
We start to see heavy growth with the rain, usually in April. This is a great time to get a spring clean-up to prepare your grass for a healthy growing season. Our residential lawn care services are in full swing by May.
What height should the grass be cut to?
Keeping the grass 3” tall allows for a deeper root system to develop. This height creates shade keeping the roots cool and not stressed. This height also allows for more moisture retention, helping to buffer the effects of severe heat or dry spells.
How often should I cut the grass?
Frequent mowing keeps your grass healthy. It's best to not remove more than 1/3 of the total height of the grass with one cut, so keeping it short keeps the ratio low. Later in the summer when the grass growth is slowing down and the weather is more dry, bi-weekly mowing can be sufficient.
What can I do to keep my lawn healthy and green?
Power raking, aeration, fertilization, mulching, regular mowing and watering all contribute to having a happy lawn. If you have dogs, training them to use a dedicated area to prevent burn spots from occurring is a handy trick. When you're watering, water slowly at a rate that your lawn can absorb to avoid runoff.
What makes for good fertilizer?
Most Canadian cities including Oakville offer a composting program that gives free compost to residents for pick-up every year – it’s great lawn food, and free! Liquid kelp contains micronutrients that are like magic sauce for both your garden and house plants. A little goes a long way. Leaving your grass clippings on the lawn as mulch is beneficial too, returning nutrients to the soil.
How often should a lawn be aerated and when?
In Oakville, the best time to aerate is in May to June and again in mid-September. The cores of soil are best left on the lawn so they can be reabsorbed. Booking our spring and fall yard cleaning services will keep you on schedule!
My dogs are making burn marks in the grass, what can I do?
Our furry friends have a high concentration of nitrogen in their waste, essentially acting like salt on the root systems of the grass. Some people like to train their pets to use a dedicated area for their business. Otherwise, diluting the spots with fresh water can help keep salts from accumulating.
