A lawn is a great addition to any home. Not only does it add curb appeal, but it’s also a great place for kids and pets to play. A well-maintained lawn can also increase the value of your home.
About Our Lawn Care Service
Our qualified professional team will assess your lawn to determine the best route in making it a lush, green masterpiece. We realize that a healthy lawn is an integral part of each home. Your lawn has the capability to complement your home like nothing else. A lawn’s health is determined by several factors:
- Calculated watering
- Application of correct fertilizer
- Soil diagnosis
- Temperate Examination
- Precision Maintenance
Owning and maintaining a healthy lawn can be a grueling and complicated task to undertake. You may find yourself overwhelmed with lawn installation or maintenance. Our team here at Green Machine has over twenty years of experience in the Landscape and Lawn Maintenance industry. Our methods are well tested and precise.
Keys To Lawn Health
Our experience in the GTA has given us the ability to diagnose what causes a lawn to fall into poor health. Many people think their lawn has fallen into a state of disrepair. However, this is not true. With the proper tools, fertilizers, maintenance, and experience that our professional lawn service brings, no lawn is too far gone. Our experience has given us the ability to replace an entire lawn in as little as one day.
Our Lawn Revival Process
The process of bringing a lawn back to life begins with the proper diagnosis. We take into account the specifics of each lawn before removing an old lawn and installing a new one.
- Current Lawn Health
- Current Watering/Fertilizing Schedule
- Sun Exposure
- Soil Composition
Several things dictate the kind of grass and method of installation required for each job. As we take all of these into account, there are no boundaries with our service in the GTA. Our level of care allows us to service customers in the cities of Markham, Stouffville, Aurora, Newmarket, and more.
After diagnosis, our lawn care professionals will process the land by removing old dead turf and adding base materials like sand, if necessary. Our services are not limited to lawn care and lawn repair. As we are a full-service operation, our team has the capabilities to fix or replace the lawn’s current irrigation system and perform any desired maintenance.
Our Personalized Lawn Landscaping Philosophy
Not only is it our primary focus to custom-diagnose each job, but also to involve the homeowner’s personal preferences in every possible aspect. Our process is highly customized. The home or business owner isn’t left out of a single step in the installation or repair.
Many homeowners can be left in the dark during a contracted job. But, our landscaping professionals work closely with the homeowners, walking them through our customizable, personalized approach.
Post-Installation, we make the maintenance process for the homeowner as easy as possible. Our installation comes with a report on how the lawn shall best be maintained, watered, and fertilized. The first few weeks after fresh sod is installed is the lawn’s most vulnerable and developmental period. Our experience ensures the health and recovery of each new lawn in perpetuity.
After installing a new lawn, many customers look to take advantage of the other services our professional team offers. Our experience with each property gives us the advantage of knowing exactly how that property should be maintained. The year-round property services that Green Machine offers are highly professional and comprehensive.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. How long will the new lawn installation take?
Each job is different, and the timeline of the job depends on job access, project requirements, product + material variability, and the timeline of the property owner. However, we have to finish new lawn installations as soon as one day.
2. Are your services limited to residential jobs?
We have 23+ years of experience catering to the custom requirements of both residential and commercial properties.
3. What if I want more than just a new lawn?
Our highly personalized approach to each new job allows us to fulfill every need of the customer. It is easy for us to add or adjust the features of a project at any time. We are a full-service landscape and construction company. This allows us to complete new lawns with elaborate stonework, intimate fire pits, retaining walls, stone or concrete steps, pools, putting greens, and even outdoor structures such as pool houses, cabanas, and outdoor kitchens.
4. What happens after the project is finished?
Each new lawn needs maintenance. As we are a full-service landscaping company, our professionals can offer the year-round maintenance that your property needs. Whether it is lawn cutting, hedge or bush trimming, edging, blowing, or even snow and ice removal during the harsh winter months. We can help.
5. How long should you not walk on a new lawn?
When you first get your lawn installed, you’ll want to avoid walking on it for at least the first week. Walking on it before it has had a chance to settle in can damage the lawn and make it harder for it to grow strong and healthy. After the first week, you can start to walk on it lightly, but avoid walking on it in high traffic areas.
6. When and why should I fertilize my lawn?
Fertilizing your lawn is a key part of keeping it healthy and looking great. The best time to fertilize your lawn is in the spring before the grass starts to grow. In the spring, the grass is still dormant and will not be able to use the fertilizer right away. The fertilizer will sit on the surface of the ground and will be absorbed as the grass starts to grow.
You should also fertilize your lawn in the fall after the leaves have fallen. In the fall, the grass is still growing and will use fertilizer to prepare for winter.
7. How can a well-landscaped property help sell my home?
A well-landscaped property can make a world of difference when it comes to selling your home. Some people might think that they don’t need to landscape their backyard or put in any effort since their home is already for sale. However, this could not be further from the truth!
Landscaping is one of the most important steps in preparing your home for sale. It can add up as much as 10% to the value of your home, and it can also help you sell your home faster. A well-landscaped yard will show buyers that you have taken care of your property and that you are willing to put in the extra effort to make it look good.
8. When should I first cut my new turf?
It can be a little tricky to determine when the best time is to cut your new turf. You don’t want to cut it too soon and stunt its growth, but you also don’t want to wait too long and have it become overgrown.
Ideally, you’ll want to wait until the turf has been rooted in and filled in the area. This usually takes around two to four weeks but can vary depending on the type of turf and the climate.
9. Why is my new turf going yellow?
There can be several reasons why your new turf is going yellow. One possibility is that the turf was not installed correctly. Improper installation can cause the turf to die and turn yellow. If the soil was not prepared properly before the turf was installed, the roots may not be able to get enough oxygen and will turn yellow.
If the turf was not watered enough after installation, it may also turn yellow. Make sure to water the turf for at least 30 minutes per day, and more if it is hot or dry outside. You can also test the soil to see if it is too alkaline or acidic. If the pH level is not correct, the turf may not be able to grow properly and will turn yellow.
