We all know that during the hot summer months the hot and dry conditions can really take a toll on your lawn.  Unless you have an irrigation system in place it is almost impossible to not have any brown patches in your lawn this time of year.  This can be avoided with a few simple steps.  One of the main things you can do to prevent this is occasional watering.  Without an irrigation system this can be quite time consuming.  Although you don’t have to water every day.  By simply watering the lawn a couple times per week, in the morning preferably, your lawn can go into dormancy with out much damage to the lawn.  Additionally, by watering for long periods of time a couple times per week encourages deep root growth which will make your lawn more resistant to drought conditions.  Another step we recommend is aerating, fertilizing, and seeding your lawn annually.  This also encourages deep root growth, provides the lawn with essential nutrients, and is a great opportunity to counteract any pH imbalances in the soil.  SK Lawn Care provides all these services to our customers and ensures that by taking these steps your lawn will be thicker, healthier, and look much nicer year after year.  Contact us today to schedule your lawn renovation services.  Also, contact SK Lawn Care today for all your lawn and landscape needs.

Controlling weeds is extremely important when establishing a new lawn.  Before planting new grass it is important to eliminate as many weeds as possible.  The reason for this is weeds will absorb and rob your new grass of water and vital nutrients necessary to establish a thick healthy lawn.  At SK Lawn Care we highly suggest eliminating weeds before planting grass seed for this very reason.  September is the ideal time in Kansas and Missouri to plant grass seed and renovate your lawn.  There for, August is the best time to begin controlling the weeds that have sprouted during the summer.  By controlling weeds in August, planting new grass in September, and feeding your lawn with quality fertilizer, your lawn will be thick and green year around.  We suggest yearly aeration and seeding to maintain a thick, healthy lawn.  Contact SK Lawn Care for all your lawn renovation services at www.sklawncarekc.com.

September is the ideal time to seed your lawn in Kansas and Missouri.  Before you seed your lawn it is important to prepare your lawn.  One of the most important things to do is kill all the weeds in your lawn first.  This includes both broadleaf weeds and grassy weeds.  By eradicating weeds before seeding allows the new grass to absorb the maximum amount of nutrients possible.  If you do not kill the weeds first, then they will rob new seedlings of vital nutrients.  SK Lawn Care recommends spraying weeds in August, aerating or verticutting the lawn, spreading seed at 10 pounds per 1000 square feet, and applying quality starter fertilizer in September.  Once this process is complete then all you have to do is water the lawn.  When watering it is important to keep the soil moist to allow quick seed germination.  By doing this process annually your lawn will be thick and healthy year after year.  Contact SK Lawn Care to begin the process by spraying weeds, and it is never too early to schedule your lawn renovation services.  Our schedule fills up quickly so contact us today for your free estimate.
