(CNN) — Snowstorms and record low temperatures whacked much of the country this week — and there’s more havoc coming Wednesday.

About 50 percent of the country had snow on the ground Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.

snowBuffalo, New York, one of the hardest-hit, is buried under 6 feet of snow — and counting.

“This storm is basically a knife that went right through the heart of Erie County,” Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz said. “I can’t remember and I don’t think anyone else can remember this much snow falling in this short a period.”

Another blast of cold air will hammer the Midwest and Northeast on Wednesday while the Southeast could see record lows as temperatures drop into the teens and 20s.

Snow fatalities

At least five people have been killed in the storm.

One of the storm-related deaths was from a car accident. Three…

The calendar says it’s more than a month until the official start of winter, but Mother Nature said differently Tuesday morning.

Every state in the Union except Hawaii had a reporting station somewhere in the state below freezing.

That includes Florida, where it was in the upper 20s in the Panhandle and freeze warnings were in effect.

This is highly unusual for this time of year and is much more reminiscent of a pattern forecasters would expect to see in January or February, not November.

The Arctic air pouring over the relatively warm Great Lakes waters is producing extreme lake-effect snows.

Some areas in Erie County, Pennsylvania, have already seen 3 feet of snow, and areas south of Buffalo, New York, are approaching 2 feet.

There have been reports of thunder snow, where thunder and lightning occur with a snowstorm.

Snowfall rates have approached 5 inches per hour…

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.

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.

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.
