Fall Seeding is Almost Over!!!

Lawn-Landscape-Mowing

The ideal time to seed your lawn is in the fall, more specifically, September.  We are coming down to the last couple days of September, but it is not too late to seed your lawn.  By seeding your lawn in the fall, the soil is still warm, and there is adequate moisture in the air to feed the new grass.  Of course watering the new seed is important, but having these conditions make it ideal for growing new grass.  Although, mother nature is providing Kansas City, Leawood, and Overland Park with an extended growing season.  Growing new grass is best done when the high temperatures are between 65 and 85 degrees.  So it appears the growing season will be extended for another week or two.  Don’t delay any long though because in the mid-west the weather can seem to change over night.  Contact SK Lawn Care for all your fall seeding services, and let us renovate your lawn.  We always use premium quality seed, and fertilizer with all of our lawn renovation services.  Also contact SK Lawn Care when your leaves begin to fall.  We also offer leaf removal and lawn cleanup services.  Contact us today at http://www.sklawncarekc.com

 

Leaf removal and lawn cleanup are just some of the services SK Lawn Care provides for homeowners’ and business owners’ lawns.  SK Lawn Care is a full service lawn care company that can handle all of your residential lawn care or commercial lawn care needs.

At SK Lawn Care we know how important your lawn is when it comes to maintaining your property.  Having a nice lawn can increase the curb appeal for selling your home, and makes your lawn much easier to take care of.  By having a thick lush lawn keeps weeds from invading because there is no room for the weeds to grow.  Additionally, weed spray applications can be costly and can harm pets, people, and other plants on your property if the technician applying the spray is not properly trained.  We make sure all our technicians are properly trained, and post signs warning passing traffic to stay off the lawn.  Although having a thick lush lawn can be easy if the right products are used.  Many people think all grass seed is the same.  This is incorrect.  It is important to look at the label of the grass seed for the germination rate, weed seed percentage, and inert matter percentage.  These numbers, while small, can have a big affect on the result of seeding your lawn.  At SK Lawn Care we use only premium quality grass seed.  Whether you prefer fescue, blue grass, or rye grass, all of our seed has a 95%-98% germination rate with 0% weed seed, and 0% inert matter.  This means the seed we apply will germinate without any weeds.  Of course any time the soil is churned up there is a chance of weeds popping up from off sight locations.  Although when we apply seed, we apply it at 10 pounds per thousand square feet to choke out the weeds.  We recommend aerating and seeding your lawn every fall to keep the lawn thick and lush.  If your lawn is in desperate need of help we recommend verticutting to remove thatch build up and optimal coverage of new grass.  We also recommend pairing these services with a quality fertilizer program.  This helps prevent weeds from starting and feeds the grass so it is well nourished and healthy.  So contact SK Lawn Care today for all your lawn renovation needs, and see how we can make caring for your lawn easy and care free.

Fall is the Best Time to Restore Your Lawn and Landscape In Kansas City, Overland Park, and Leawood

Fall is the best time to revamp your lawn and landscape.  The warm days and cool nights create an ideal environment for planting new grass, shrubs, and trees.  It offers warm soil and adequate moisture to begin new growth.  Planting new grass in the fall allows the seed to take root and establish itself before winter dormancy.  This will make your lawn thicker and healthier in the spring.  SK Lawn Care recommends aerating and/or verticutting your lawn any time grass seed is applied.  We also recommend applying a quality starter fertilizer when seeding, and another application of quality starter fertilizer one month after planting.  This gives the lawn an extra boost of nutrients to establish roots and thrive.

Planting shrubs and trees in the fall is also ideal.  The fall is a great time to do any landscaping, so that your landscape looks nice and is ready to go in the spring.  We also recommend adding mulch to flower beds that need additional mulch.  Having a nice thick layer of mulch going into winter keeps your new plants from going into shock on the first frost.  It helps retain warmth and moisture on the first frost for your landscape.  Your lawn and landscape are large investments in your properties curb appeal.  So it is important to take care of it at the proper time.  By doing so, both your lawn and landscape will be healthier, and much less expensive to maintain, rather than waiting until it needs help.  Contact SK Lawn Care today for all your lawn and landscape needs in Kansas City, Overland Park, Leawood, and Prairie Village.

Don’t Let Summer Heat Damage Your Lawn

Don’t Let The Summer Heat Damage Your Lawn

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.

Weed Control is Important Before Establishing a New Lawn

Weed Control Is Important Before Establishing a New Lawn

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.

Time To Prepare Your Lawn For Fall Seeding

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.
