As 2017 ends, we wanted to take a minute to reflect on the year, thank you, our great customers, for your valued business and finally, our team of dedicated employees for their commitment to doing their best work for our customers!
We started off the summer by installing brand new pavers for a beautiful and relaxing new outdoor patio area at the entrance to Ball Conference Center adding a final touch to a pro-bono project Heinen completed for Ball – a not for profit – in 2015. Said Michael Nicoski, Manager of Events and Operations at Ball, “The patio project really completes the vision we had for an entry plaza that would be really useful for Ball Conference Center guests – especially those wanting to take wedding reception photos to commemorate their special day. Heinen Landscape did a great job!”
To celebrate Earth Day this past April, Heinen donated a total of 1,000 Black Oak tree saplings children and families in the Prairie Village area! Customers shopping at the Hen House in Corinth Square on Saturday, April 22, picked their own sapling while enjoying complimentary refreshments and doughnuts. The giveaway was such a hit, we donated an additional 200 saplings to the students at Prairie Elementary School.
Landscape, Hardscape, Irrigation – Even a Wrought Iron Fence and Evergreen Trees Installation
Heinen’s dedicated outdoor living teams also stayed hard at work in 2017. One project included building a wrought iron fence and planting evergreens for the Johnson family (in addition to previous irrigation, landscape and retaining wall projects). A recent post from the Johnson’s on Twitter exclaimed, “I love my new fence!! Thanks to my guys from Heinen Landscape Irrigation they are the best!” I can truly say, “it was our pleasure!”
Still looking for that perfect Christmas gift? How about a sprinkler system upgrade! Heinen partners with Rachio and their Smart Controller that allows you to control your irrigation system from your smartphone – and save $ on your water bill! Call now and Heinen will take $50 off installation – and have it ready to go for spring.

The fall and winter months are the time to be keeping your yard healthy to avoid extra maintenance in the spring. There are several things you should be doing that many of us forget about. Here is a list put together by Heinen Landscape of things that need to be done to keep your grass and plants healthy and happy.
Bring Potted Plants Inside
If you’ve taken some of your plants outside for the summer to enjoy the warm sun and fresh air, don’t forget to bring them back inside! It’s usually not as simple as just moving a pot from one place to another. You’ll want to be sure that you get rid of any pests that have made their way into the dirt over the summer. These pesky bugs might hitchhike over to your other indoor plants and around your house. You can use a hose to water and help knock off any unwanted pests like spider mites. If your plant has grown significantly since being outside, you might consider repotting them.
Sprinkler System Winterization
To prevent costly repairs and maintenance in the spring, it is best to have your irrigation system shut down before the first freeze. By doing so, it ensures your pipes won’t break once the ground temperature gets below freezing.
Winterizing your sprinkler system is a process that consists of allowing water lines to drain and then blowing out any remaining water with an air compressor. We’ll also inspect your sprinkler heads, valves and other moving parts to make sure your equipment is in tip top shape.
Aerate the Soil
Aerating the soil is a process of perforating the soil with small holes. This allows for oxygen, water, and fertilizer to easily reach the roots. It helps to alleviate soil compaction so your grass can have strong roots and produce a more vigorous lawn.
The dreaded leaf removal. By not removing leaves, they become wet from rain, stick together, and form a mat that if left unmoved will suffocate the grass. Luckily at Heinen we know how much of a pain leaf removal can be. We have a tool, called the Billy Goat, that vacuums up all twigs, leaves, and acorns, so you don’t have to be out in your yard with a rake during the weekends.
Call the pros at Heinen to schedule a time to get your yard all ready for the cold winter months. Call Debbie at Heinen for all of your landscape needs at 913-432-5011.
Fall is right around the corner which means cool weather will be settling in soon. Spring blooms and new plant growth seems centuries away. Some people may not know, but fall is actually the best time to plant many new landscape additions including shrubs and trees.
Due to cool temperatures and increased rainfall, roots have time to establish in warm soil before the ground freezes. And, moderate fall temperatures avoid the risk of shock from being transplanted in the heat of summer.
Heinen Landscape has a great online tool to help you with planning your fall plantings. In the past, Heinen Landscape’s Online Plant Catalog had password-only availability, but now everyone has easy access to the online tool that will help you create your plan. If you’re not familiar with the The Plant Catalog, it’s time to take a look. The catalog only features species of plants that will grow well in the Kansas City area. And the best part is you can sort through different plant categories – including annual & perennials; shade & sun; deciduous & evergreens; and also trees, vines, shrubs and more! Select a category (or two, or three) and the Heinen Online Plant Catalog automatically pulls ups pictures and descriptions of each plant in that category – all of which can be ordered and planted through Heinen Landscape.
