Succession: Going Through it to Get To It

Most St. Catharines lawn care services will tell you that in order to get a lush, green lawn, you must use fertilizers. And that if you do, you’ll see results with as little as one application. That may be true. You will see results in a very short amount of time.

However, what they do not tell you – and what many of them do not even know – is that these toxic chemicals are ruining the soil underneath that turf, which will also destroy the grass and other living things that use it. So even though results are seen, they’re false results because they’re not actually working. It’s like placing a picture over a hole in the wall instead of actually fixing the hole. You can’t see it, but that doesn’t mean the problem doesn’t still exist. It’s just a quick fix.

At Stangl’s, we know better. And we’re the only ones in St. Catharines and the surrounding area that do. We know that in order to get that beautiful lawn, you have to go through it to get to it. You have to go through the proper steps to get to that beautiful lawn in order to actually get that lush green grass.

The toxins that are so commonly used today bring a false sense of security to homeowners. Because while the visual results are there, it’s the effects that can’t be seen that are really doing serious damage. Those toxins are full of carcinogens that cause cancer to pets, kids, and everyone and everything that uses that lawn.

We also know that those pesticides, while killing slugs and other pesky insects, are also killing the bees, butterflies, ladybugs and other beneficial insects that are vital to keeping life in the soil and the lawn.

At Stangl’s, we know this. And we know that in order to restore a lawn, you need to restore life.

Our lawn care solutions consist of using samples, metrics, and microscopic samples that can tell us exactly where a lawn is at in any stage of succession. Based off of these results, we’re then better able to tell our customers how long it will take to bring that soil back to life. It may take more than one application, but we’re dedicated to doing lawn care the only way it should be done – the right way.  

This is what’s called succession in nature. And all succession means is the process that is required in order to end up with a healthy and beautiful lawn.

By using science and actual metrics for discovery, we can confidently tell our customers where they are in the succession. And that’s something that no other lawn care company in St. Catharines does. Other lawn care companies are based solely on a visual field and they all use the same formula of applying toxins to achieve those visual results. But this is not the right way of doing things.

Just like anything else in life, when it comes to safe lawn care practices, lawns have to go through the succession in order to get to the lawn they’re after. They have to go through the process of restoring life to the soil in order to get to that lush green lawn they want. Fertilizers don’t restore life. Toxic pesticides and weed-killers certainly don’t restore life.

But our lawn care solutions do. It just takes time. It takes going through that succession in order to get to that beautiful lawn. Any other way simply does not work, even though those harmful fertilizers will provide a false visual that they do.

At Stangl’s, we know how to get lawns through the proper steps of succession so we can help our customers get the lush lawn they’re looking for. And we know this is the only real way of properly caring for a lawn. Call us at Stangl’s today at 905-641-8133. We’ll help you go through it in order to get to it.
