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.

The Importance of Aerating and Seeding Your Lawn

Lawn-LawnCare-Aeration-Aerate-Seed-SKLawnCare

Aerating and Seeding Your Lawn Is Important

Routinely aerating and seeding your lawn will make a big impact on improving the appearance and health of your lawn.  Aerating your lawn naturally breaks down thatch, promotes deep roots, and creates a thick health stand of turf.  If you do not aerate your lawn the soil will become compact.  Compacted soil makes it more difficult for the lawn to absorb nutrients, water, and creates shallow roots.  When you have your lawn aerated it is important to apply seed, fertilizer, and any soil additives needed.  Fescue and Blue Grass are the most common types of grass in Kansas and Missouri, and the best time for this is in September.  The warm soil and cool evenings allow for fast seed germination, and allows the lawn to become well established before winter dormancy.  Adding fertilizer and soil additives provides the lawn with needed nutrients, and offsets and pH imbalances.  Have SK Lawn Care aerate and seed your lawn this September and come spring, you will have the best looking lawn in the neighborhood.  Contact SK Lawn Care today at www.sklawncarekc.com
