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.

How late can I seed?

Why Late Lawn Seedings Often Fail

We normally recommend that Kentucky bluegrass and tall fescue be seeded in September but no later

than October 15. Though plantings later than October 15 can be successful, the odds of success

diminish as time passes. This year has been so warm that those who planted a bit late will likely

be successful.  The problem with late plantings is not that the seed will not come up or that young grass plants are

sensitive to cold. Most often, the problem is with rooting. Unless the young grass plants have a fairly extensive root

system, the freezing and thawing that takes place during winter heaves plants out of the ground, and they dry out and

die.  Regardless of when planted, be sure the new lawn is kept watered through the fall. More mature

lawns will need less frequent watering but all should go into the winter with moist soil. – Kstate Turfgrass
