FAQ's

  • When, and how often should I book lawn fertilization services?

    Rümi’s fertilizer program covers the entire summer season starting in early May and finishing in late September. It includes five applications of an optimized liquid blend tailored to Alberta’s changing seasons – spring, early summer, summer, late summer, and fall.

  • What kind of fertilizer is used?

    Our fertilizers are custom blended designed to release in a controlled manner while increasing soil and plant health. They are a balanced combination of nutrients for your lawn. We fertilize your lawn the same way Alberta’s top golf courses do, and use professional products made in Canada.  

  • What’s so bad about weeds? 

    Weeds take away all the nutrition from your lawn, depleting the grass from important nutrients it needs to stay healthy and green – the same goes for your lovely garden. They can be a particular pain if they grow under hard surfaces like a deck, since they require special treatment to remove in order to avoid lifting and other property damage.

  • When can I expect to see results?

    After fertilization, you can expect to see healthy green grass in 10-14 days. Just add water. 

    For weed removal, you can expect to see weeds brown and wither away after about two weeks.

  • How does Rümi ensure safety? 

    Safety is one of our top priorities.  

    Our crews bring and maintain expert equipment. Every team member is required to wear long pants, jeans, or slacks. When operating the trimmers, our crew members wear provided eye protection. Both crew members also wear provided ear protection and gloves.

  • How long will it take to complete these services?

    Typically, our crew of experts can complete each service in less than 30 minutes each.
