Schedule Updates


Irrigation Installation, Service & Repairs
We are performing the Sprinkler System Checks & Repair services. You should have your irrigation set to run 4-5 days per week, 10 minutes on pop-up zones and 20-25 minutes on rotating zones. Give us a call if you are ready to get on the schedule. If you are interested in having an irrigation system installed, please give the office a call at 913-829-6135.

Turf Maintenance
We are applying Round 5 of our 7 Round Turf Program. Round 5 is a liquid application targeting nutsedge, broadleaf, and grassy weeds in the lawn. Turf Managers will also assess lawns at this time to determine if and what is needed as far as a Fall Lawn Renovation. Aeration, verticutting and overseeding being the common items to be done in order to keep the lawn full and thick. If you are interested in starting your personalized turf health plan please give us a call.

Plant Health Care
We are currently applying Round 3 of our plant insecticide program for the 2017 season. Round 3 is a treatment to control primarily spider mites on spruce, junipers and burning bush. Please call to schedule a consultation with one of our certified Arborist today.

Mowing Service
The mowing season has begun and will run weekly from now until the end of October. Due to the rainy weather they may be behind a day or two but will work weekends to catch up. If you are interested in the weekly mowing service, please contact the office.

Hot Days and Humid Nights = Turf Disease

Be on the lookout for turfgrass diseases in your yard in the next few months.  Brown areas may start to appear and it might not always be drought.  They may be cause by humidity and excessively wet conditions.

  • All common turf grasses
  • Especially lush, cool-season grasses
  • Tall fescue lawns

  • Hot, wet and humid weather patterns
  • Daytime temperatures 80 to mid 90's
  • Nightime temperatures warm, mid 60s and above
  • Abundant rainfall

Areas of increased susceptibility

  • Wet soils and poor drainage
  • Shaded lawn areas
  • Lawn areas with little to no air movement
