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

When it comes to your lawn and landscape, fall is the best time to think about spring.  The fall season is the ideal time to do any planting for the following year.  No matter if your are planting grass to have a thick healthy lawn, or if you are planting shrubs and trees.  Fall is the ideal time to plant because the soil is warm, the nights are cool, and there is usually adequate moisture.  All of these factors promote root growth to establish the plant before winter.  By planting in the spring, the soil is still cold from the winter, so it takes longer to establish a root system.  The warm soil encourages root growth, and the plant can naturally go dormant before winter causing it the flourish in the spring.  The best part about landscaping in the fall is when spring comes around, all the work is already done and you can enjoy your new landscape.  So no matter if you are looking to plant grass, or create an entirly new landscape environment on your property, think spring now.  You will be happier, and so will your plants.  Plus your landscape will be in excellent condition, so when the snow melts you can enjoy your beautiful landscape.  Contact SK Lawn Care today for all your lawn and landscape needs in Kansas City, Overland Park, Leawood, and Prairie Village.
