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.

Why Are My Daffodils Not Blooming???

Are your daffodils not showing their smiling face yet? Are your bulbs only producing foliage? Try the following to see improvements in next year’s color…

  1. The bulbs might need dividing. After a couple years the original bulb will grow offspring bulbs, attached to the base. These can easily be pulled off and planted individually. Dig them up and divide in early fall.
  2. They might be planted too deep. As a guideline, plant the bulb twice the depth as the bulb is wide. For daffodils this is a little bit more deeper than your tulip and crocus bulbs. Check out package instructions for exact measurements.
  3. The previous year’s foliage was cut off too early. The daffodil needs to retain the foliage in order to obtain sunlight and store energy in the bulb for upcoming year’s blooms. Do not cut them back until the foliage is completely died back.
  4. If all else fails, the soil might be to blame. A simple soil test can tell you a lot. Contact Aspen to help you decode what your soil needs.
