We've hired Property Werks for one time clean up, annual maintenance, weekly mows, spring/autumn clean ups and snow removal. We have been extremely pleased with the work, and attention to our concerns. Not only is the office friendly, all staff are very courteous who have been to our house over the years.

Property Werks is the best company for lawn mowing and snow removal. Cristine and her team have been managing my home for almost three years. I appreciate the snow and lawn mowing reports & also value the reports with pics received after they have mowed our lawn or removed snow. I have never had an issue of snow not being removed within 24 hours after it has stopped snowing. I always recommend them to friends, family and coworkers as they have an amazing team. Thank you for such an impeccable service.

Timely efficient and work done with heart in it. We are happy to hire them for our extra large yard lawn mowing.

Usually a very good, prompt service. Snow is usually prompt and the grass is very good. I will be happy if the lawn clippings are left on the lawn. We will be away all summer so there is no place to put them.

I had sod installed 4 years ago, and despite regular and routine watering, it dried out and died. I called Property Werks back and they were great to work with. They came out and assessed the lawn, and offered a free aerating of the yard so that I could re-seed (which is what I wanted to do). They were professional and amicable. I would recommend them and work with them again.
RM Solomon
Property Werks have done our lawns for many years and we are very satisfied with their service. Cristine in the office has been very open to fixing any errors and she is very friendly to deal with. We would definitely recommend this company to others.
Rose Lindsay
I've been using Property Werks for some years now for lawn maintenance and they do excellent work. Excellent customer service and communication. Christine at the head office is a positive, awesome person. Thank you.
Marie Woron
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.

I highly recamend Property Werks. I used them this past winter for snow removal.They were out in all kinds of terribly cold weather. The few times I had some small complaints, I called Chistine, and she addressed these issues right away. Thanks for sending your photo. I have tried to put a face to one of the kindest, sweetest people I have ever worked with. You have the voice of a very young person but the maturity to deal with any problem in a timely matter. I like the idea of sending photos as soon as the work in finished and have booked their lawn care for this summer.

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.
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"

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 OTTAWA?
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 Ottawa 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 Ottawa, 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.
