Thanks from Heinen Landscape for an Amazing 2017!

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!

KVC and Ball Conference Center

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!”

 

Earth Day Tree Giveaway

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.

As your family looks ahead to 2018 remember, if your considering a new patio, outdoor lighting, landscaping, or even an irrigation system, Heinen is here to help! Just call Debbie at 913-432-5011

Yard Winterization

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.

Leaf Removal

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.

I’m Constantly Recommending Heinen to My Friends!

Heinen customer Barb T. switched from a basic lawn mowing service to Heinen Landscape over fifteen years ago – and now she relies on Dave and the team for all her outdoor needs. “They’ve touched almost every part of our lawn and we get compliments all the time from people just walking by our home!” Barb said recently. Over the years, Heinen has helped Barb with dozens of projects – everything from mowing, fertilizing, and weeding to landscaping, irrigation, and fence installation!

When asked how she decided on Heinen for her lawn care and landscaping needs, Barb said, “They started by just redoing our front flower bed and they did such a good job, it’s just grown from there!”

Barb loves that she can take her outdoor living problems to Heinen and trusts that they’ll come up with a solution that fits her needs. Earlier this year Barb was having some drainage issues on the side of her yard and Heinen came up with a quick solution to keep her yard from flooding. The team also recently installed some bushes by her driveway to hide trash cans from view. “They’re always coming up with great ideas and I am constantly recommending Heinen to my friends,” said Barb.

One of Barb’s favorite things about Dave Heinen and the team is, “They always try to use plants that are natural and indigenous to the area so you’re not struggling with a high-maintenance plant that’s just going to die during the winter. It’s so much easier to care for and makes maintenance better and easier.”

When asked about future plans for her yard, Barb said she had a couple flower beds she wanted to revamp and freshen up a little. She has Heinen out for yard maintenance regularly and she loves that they always make things right. According to Barb, “They’re all so nice and easy to work with. It’s such a wonderful feeling to come home and see how great they did with the yard. There’s definitely a sense of pride in their work.”

Here are a few photos of the beautiful work Heinen did for Barb’s yard!
