With the end of October fast approaching, weekly mowing will end and we will begin our leaf cleanup processes. Typically, we perform two fall cleanups to lawns in the fall. The first cleanup involves removing all the leaf cover from the lawn and hard surfaces. The second cleanup involves removing all the leaves from the property including the landscaped areas. We can also perform weekly or bi-weekly cleanups if you have heavy leaf cover and want them removed more routinely. Call us if you have any questions or are interested in getting on our schedule.
We will begin our weekly mowing services on Thursday 4/3, weather permitting. If you are scheduled for a Thursday or Friday mowing day this season, you will be mowed this week. Those scheduled for Mon-Wed. will begin their weekly services starting Monday 4/7. We look forward to another great season!
We will begin our leaf cleanup operations around the first week of November. We perform two leaf cleanups during the fall season. Additional cleanups including weekly service is available upon request. During the first cleanup, we will remove all the leaves from the turf areas & hard surfaces in and around your property. We will NOT clean the leaves from the landscaped areas during the first cleanup unless you have otherwise arranged that service with us.
Follow the link to watch Kent on KC Live this morning talking about proper mowing to ensure your grass grows thick & lush throughout the season:
If you bag and dispose of your lawn clippings, you're throwing away a valuable resourse. Lawn Clippings are high in nutrients that can be returned to the soil. Research has shown that over the course of 1 season, the clippings from a 1,000 square feet area contribute nearly 2 lbs of Nitrogen. That is huge considering that most fertilizer recommendations for a season are between 3-4 lbs per 1,000 square feet of area. Everyone knows how much fertilizer cost…so if you're disposing of your grass clippings, you're throwing away $$$$.
If turfgrass is cut too short, it will increase the competition level between grass and weeds. Recommended mowing height for spring is 2.75"-3.25".
We are currently mowing at 3.25" for this spring. Most turf in our area is fescue, which prefers to be mowed higher than most grasses. Mowing higher will also assist in weed prevention and drought tolerence.
Please do not water on your mow day or the day after in case of rain. This will help us stay on schedule and keep your lawn looking thick and lush. If you have any questions about your mow day or need help setting your clock, please call the office, we can assist you.
