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.

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.

Watering Trees in the Winter

We get quite a few questions about watering trees in the winter.  It is important that with new plantings that you are aware that they will still need moisture in the winter months.  Most of the time Mother Nature helps us out, i.e. snow, ice and rain.  But there are times when supplemental water is needed.  Here are some tips from the Kansas State Extension Office to help out:

Winter Watering:

“Be sure to thoroughly soak the soil around established trees and shrubs before ground freezes in the fall.  In the case of a dry winter, water during a midwinter thaw when ground is not frozen and a few days of mild weather are predicted.  This is especailly important for evergreens.  DIsconnect and drain the hose after winter watering.”
