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.

Windowsill Herb Garden

 With all this hot and humid weather outside, I like to keep my gardening to the indoors!  A windowsill herb garden in the kitchen still satisfies my green thumb and also is great to be able to mix herbs with all the fresh home grown produce of the summer.  Stick to herbs that stay short and compact growing habit like chives, basil, lavender, parsley, mint, thyme or rosemary.  Snip the plants often to encourage full and bushy growth.  Never cut off more than 1/3 of the plant when harvesting as not to bring the plant into shock.  Remember, since you are eating these plants, only use fertilizer that is made for edibles and only apply it once a month.
