Prepare Your Lawn for the Winter with Leaf Removal

Fall Leaf Removal Kansas City Overland Park

SK Lawn Care Leaf Removal Kansas City Overland Park

Your lawn naturally goes into winter dormancy to protect itself from the harsh winter conditions.  Although, the grass does need a little help for it to thrive in the spring.  One important thing that needs to be done to your lawn and landscape is applying a quality winterizing fertilizer application.  This provides the lawn and landscape with essential nitrogen and potassium to encourage deep root growth and provide the plants with essential nutrients.  This allows your lawn to green up faster in the spring, and be overall more healthy.  If you have an irrigation system, it is important to have it properly winterized to relieve the water pressure so the pipes do not burst during the long cold winter.

In addition to feeding the lawn and properly winterizing your irrigation system it is important to remove the fallen leaves from your lawn.  Having a thick layer of leaves on the lawn will suffocate lawn from essential sunlight and oxygen which will result in a dead lawn in the spring.  Additionally, over winter the dead leaves on the lawn leach acidity into the soil which creates an undesirable soil composition for healthy grass.  Dead leaves in your landscape can be beneficial because many plants in landscape beds prefer acidic soil.  Of course it is important to consider moderation.  Too much of anything can be bad for plants.  So it is important to remove the leaves at least once or twice from you landscape in the fall.  Leaf removal in Kansas City, Overland Park, and Leawood can be a daunting task to handle.  We have many large trees that drop leaves at various times in the fall.  Removing the leaves as they fall is ideal, although require a lot of time and work.  That is why it is ideal to hire professionals to remove the leaves for you.  Professional leaf removal allows the landscaper to remove the leaves from your lawn in a timely manner, and gives you more time for other obligations, such as the holidays.  Leaf removal also allows the landscaper to understand more about your lawn and exactly what it needs other than leaf removal.  A professional landscaper will be able to tell you how often you need your lawn mowed, fertilized, and if the trees need pruning.  All this information can be assessed with leaf removal.  Contact SK Lawn Care for all your lawn and landscape needs.  Let us remove one item from your chore list by removing the leaves from your lawn and landscape.  When we do a leaf removal on your lawn, we will be able to help you have a healthy lawn in the spring, and the best part is you won’t have to worry about leaf removal.  Let SK Lawn Care remove the leaves from your lawn and landscape so you can prepare for the holidays and not have to work outside in the cold.  Contact SK Lawn Care for all your lawn and landscape needs, and contact us today for leaf removal.  Our leaf removal schedule fills up quickly this time of year, so contact us today to reserve your spot for leaf removal before the holidays.  We still have a few positions open right before Thanksgiving, so contact us today to remove the leaves from your lawn and landscape to impress both you and your guests.

Fall is the Ideal Time to Landscape your Lawn in Kansas City and Overland Park

Many people think about landscaping in the spring when it should really be done in the fall.  By landscaping in the fall, the new plants have time to establish a root system before winter sets in.  This allows the plants a better chance of survival and encourages deep root growth for strong healthy plants.  Additionally, in the spring your lawn and landscape will already look great, so you won’t have to worry about it and you can enjoy your beautiful lawn and landscape.  Fall is a great time for planting and fertilizing.  Whether you are installing bushes and trees, or overseeding your lawn.  Fall is the time to do it.  The main reason for this is because the soil is warm from the summer, and there is plenty of moisture in the air.  When you plant in the spring, the soil is still cold from the winter, and it takes longer for root systems to establish.  Then once they are established it is important to continue watering throughout the summer.  When the root system is established in the fall, less water is necessary during the following summer.  Contact SK Lawn Care for all your lawn and landscape needs in Kansas City, Overland Park, Leawood, and Prairie Village.

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

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.

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.
