While Kansas City is in the middle of record breaking heat this summer, you may be wondering if your lawn will ever recover from these hot, dry conditions. Even with extreme weather you can have a beautiful, lush lawn but it requires some planning. The good news: Heinen can help. Heinen knows that the unpredictable weather in Kansas City can make it difficult to keep up with your lawn. But with the Guaranteed Grass® program from Heinen Landscape, the lawn of your dreams starts may be closer than you think! Following are a Guaranteed Grass tips from Heinen’s turf pros!
Summer – Water wisely:To help your lawn be its greenest, and to avoid damage from over or under-watering, consider having the irrigation professionals at Heinen Landscape & Irrigation install an underground automatic sprinkler system. Weekends spent lugging the hose around the yard will be a thing of the past and your lawn will stay hydrated and healthy.
Your irrigation system is not complete without a state-of-the-art control system from our partners at Rachio. As a leader in residential irrigation technology, the Rachio Wi-Fi Smart Sprinkler Controllerprovides homeowners with fingertip control of their home sprinkler systems – direct from their mobile devices!
Fall – Overseeding: The cool fall temperatures in Kansas City make for the best time to plant new
grass seed. The professionals at Heinen Landscape will test your soil to ensure it is healthy enough to grow new grass, then lay down only the highest-quality and most reliable grass seed. Follow-up visits from the Heinen turf maintenance team will ensure new growth prospers – removing sun-blocking leaves and watching for signs of turf mold, insects and other threats to your healthy lawn.
Winter – Give your irrigation system a break: To prevent costly repairs and maintenance in the spring, it is best to have your irrigation system shut down before the first freeze. This ensures your pipes won’t break once the ground temperature drops below freezing. Winterizing our sprinkler system is a process that consists of allowing water lines to drain and then blowing out any remaining water with an air compressor. Heinen’s Irrigation professionals also inspect your sprinkler heads, valves and other moving parts to make sure your equipment is in tip top shape.
Spring – Fertilize: In Kansas City, April is typically the best time of year to begin chemically treating your lawn. The experts at Heinen Landscape will develop a detailed and tailored 6-week chemical application plan designed specifically for your specific lawn. Heinen uses the safest and most reliable products available in the industry to keep your lawn weed, disease, and pest-free. By using only top-of-the-line fertilizers and other treatments your lawn will stay lush, green, and beautiful throughout the entire growing season.
