A successful lawn starts with the right plan
Our Professional lawn care program is designed to position your lawn for optimal growth, health and longevity. All of our applications are 100% environmentally-friendly and have been carefully selected for each season and region of the country.
The Professional is our most comprehensive program offering 9 separate applications. The Professional will launch your lawn into a state of renewed vitality with core aeration and over-seeding applications in both prime root growth periods (spring & fall) plus organic fertilizer applications that will safely promote lawn growth and root stability throughout the season. Lastly, the Professional includes a spring and fall lime treatment that will ”sweeten” your lawn’s soil making it less acidic - ideal for lawn growth.

Professional Seed Blend
When we met with suppliers to design the seed blend for the Vinca Plan Pro, we told them that our goal was long-term growth and development of the turf – not the short-term yields you get from most quick-germinating seed varieties. Since British Columbia lawns respond best to over-seeding with Ryegrass, we built our strategy around this grass type in combination with a blend of Fescue varieties that also respond well in the B.C. climate. Together, these new seeds will build up your lawn's base over the long-term while also filling in the gaps that tend to appear each year in shaded and well-worn areas. We are confident that this over-seeding strategy is a smart, sustainable way to optimize every lawn's health and appearance.
Note: We encourage all of our customers to do their part to stimulate maximum germination of the seed by keeping their lawn damp for 10 to 20 days following the over-seeding.

The ultra-important service of Core Aeration is quite simply the very best of turf-grass cultural practices that can be performed on a lawn each year. Our modern mechanical core aeration machines remove thousands of small cylindrical cores of earth and grass from the base of the lawn. This service effectively breaks up the thatch barrier that forms on the top of the lawn after a long winter season. As this barrier is broken down and the soil compaction resulting from the weight of the snow is relieved, the lawn is now able to breathe again and can absorb all that the new growing season has to offer. Spring rain, oxygen and nutrients will quickly reach the root system with ease, enhancing the effects that they produce.
This particular service was the driving force behind the growth of Canadian Property Stars over the past 20 years and we firmly believe that it remains the single most important service that no lawn should go without!
It's well known that the high amounts of annual rainfall in the Lower Mainland and on the Island wash away key nutrients leaving you with soil that is too acidic for optimal lawn health. For this reason, the Vinca Plan sweetens up your soil using all natural organic Dolomitic Lime treatments that not only restore the neutral balance that is favourable to turf grass growth…but also promote resistance to moss and weed problems. The Professional program comes with an early spring lime application that will be activated right away by the frequent rains followed by a second application in the fall.
