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 winter burn after a mild winter?

During the first few weeks of Spring, I've seen quite a bit of winter damage on plant material.  Many clients have expressed that they are surprised with the winter burn because of the mild winter we experienced in '14-'15.  The only think I can correlate the damage to is the cold November we had in Fall 2014.  We were below freezing for a string of many days in a row and it got down into the teens.  That type of frigid cold during a period when the plants were still actively growing and not dormant yet would certainly cause winter burn similar to what a late freeze would cause.  Roses and Yews have been the two plants that seem to have suffered the brunt of the damage.
