Schedule Updates

AUGUST 2017

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.

Waterlogged soils and plants

 

 

 

 

 

Waterlogged soils have had the oxygen pushed out that roots need to survive. Every living cell

color with a return to drier weather.

in a plant must have oxygen or it dies. Some plants have mechanisms to provide oxygen to the roots even

under saturated conditions, but most of our vegetables and flowers do not. The longer these plants are

subjected to saturated soils, the more likely damage will occur. Usually, as long as water drains within 24

hours, the impact on plant health is minimal. However, shallow, stagnant water under hot, sunny conditions

can literally cook plants, reducing survival time to as little as a few hours.
