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.

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.

Seeding Your Lawn in the Winter?!?

If you have a cool season grass type in your lawn then it is generally best to seed your lawn in the fall.  Fall is when cool season grasses naturally germinate and seeding at this time allows for the best possible outcome.  Many argue that the spring time is best for seeding, which is not entirely false.  The spring is the second best time to seed your lawn using a cool season grass.  The main reason why fall is a more advantageous time to seed is because of the soil temperature   Since the soil is still warm from the summer, grass seed germinates much faster than in cooler soil still warming up from winter frost.

 

Why would we be discussing seeding your lawn in the winter if the fall has already past?

 

Many times after  there are still weak spots from traffic, birds, and nature.  Additionally, leaves fall after it is best to seed, so you may rake out some new grass trying to keep your lawn clear of leaves.  That is how we find ourselves discussing “dormant seeding” or seeding in the winter time.  Dormant seeding seems to work best with a little bit of snow on the ground to help the seed and moisture leach into the ground.  This will result in a thicker lawn in the spring.  Of course the more seed you apply to your lawn the thicker it will be, so if you seed in the fall, seed in the winter, and seed in the spring, the weak spots in your lawn should be less prevalent.   As long as you have been watering.  Moisture is very key in the germination of seed.  Too much moisture and your seed will flow out of place, either off the property or to low areas, causing uneven distribution of grass.  Not enough moisture and the seed will either not germinate or baby grass will be malnourished for proper growth.  By placing seed in the snow, usually best to have about 1-2 inches of accumulation, the soil will naturally absorb both the seed and moisture.  Even if the temperature does not drop to melt the snow for some time the seed will remain frozen preventing early germination.

Adding an additional round of seeding in the winter, where the seed stays frozen to prevent early germination and additional moisture is stored in the ground, can be very beneficial to your lawn.  This is not the best time to seed your lawn, but it is a good time to recover weak spots.  Of course you can seed numerous times per year and still not have a thick healthy lawn with out a proper nutrition and maintenance plan.  Frequent mowing and fertilization applications can go a long way in maintaining an attractive property.
