Leslieville Summer Front Garden Weeding

Summer 2019 Rolls On and the Weeds Follow in Step


After a relatively cold and wet May, it's truly feeling like summer with temperatures soaring into the mid-high 30s (Celsius) and humidex readings into the 40s this week! With higher temperatures and copious amounts of rain, the weeds naturally have exploded in growth. Which means many business requests for me. A virtuous circle as it were. 

Let's face it: few of us (myself included) want to be out in furnace-like conditions pulling or digging out little (and not so little) bits of unwanted vegetation when our summers here in Toronto are so short. I would be mortified to show you my backyard.

This post brings us back to, Leslieville, a neighbourhood I visit frequently in Toronto's east-end. I weed this client's front yard annually (yes, really, once a year!) It's very small but usually jammed pack full of weeds when I arrive.

I transplanted some extra common-as-nails variegated hostas  after removing the weedy grass, as shown above.

I recommended to the client that she place some mulch down to reduce the amount of grass and other wind-borne weed seedlings from popping up again. If you ask me, one of the top five "worst" weeds I encounter is grass or turf growing in flower beds. Strangely, no one around this house is growing a lawn (too many trees, too small a frontage) so it's a bit of mystery where the grass seeds are coming from!
