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.

Hosta Fall Needs

At the end of each growing season, many people ask us what needs to be done to their Hostas as they begin to go dormant.  Some wonder whether or not they should fertilize in the fall or spring. Many of your other landscape plants benefit from the extra fall nourishment as their roots prepare to go dormant. However, Hostas should never be fertilized in the fall. Spring is the best time to fertilize Hostas. They take in a sufficient dose of vitamins and minerals that prepare for healthy new growth.
You should, however, cut Hostas after fall's first hard frost. The proper way to cut back the foliage is to cut the entire plant down to the ground. Some gardeners have a difficult time cutting their plants back so drastically, but this is beneficial to the plant as it deters pests from overwintering in the dead leaves.
