Lawn Renovations are just around the corner. Our Turf Managers are hard at work getting bids out. With the extreme conditions we have had this year most everyone will need some sort of work done on their lawn. The most important thing you can do is Aerate your lawn. There is a blog that was done on aeration under Turf & Ornamental Maintenance. In Short it talks about getting a good aeration to move nutrients, air and water to the root system and break up the compacted ground. With the heat and drought the clay is rock hard and needs to be broken up. Next thing is seeding, most yards if not watered properly will not make it even, dormant grass needs water also to keep it from dying. We can help you will all your lawn needs. If you would like a bid for any of our services please call at 913.829.6135. Keep enjoying the wonderful weather!!

Well as I'm looking at the 10 day forecast it is looking like we might need to get our jackets out. After today's 100 degree high we might have a nice break from the heat. Okay, maybe we don't need jackets, but with the forcast showing 90's anything is better than 100+. Now we just need some rain. Hopefully this is a trend and not just by chance that we are lowering in temperature. Well if anything enjoy the 80's for Friday and Saturday as well as the cool nights and lower highs for the next 10 days.
Since we are in the Olympic spirit I thought I would blog about something dealing with the Olympics. At the London Aquatic Center there are 3 pools with a total volume of 2.6 million gallons of water. The average American uses 80-100 gallons a day. If you used the water from the 3 pools at London’s Aquatic Center to live on you could go 71 years before you needed water and that is using 100 gallons a day!! Probably never thought of those pools like that before.
Well this is our second small rain shower in 1 week. At this point we will take what we can get. With these little rain showers we can sometimes feel like we can take it easy on the sprinklers for a day or two. This is not the case. Even with these little showers you should not change your irrigation settings. Our recommended settings for irrigation are:
5-6 days a week
Rotors: 30mins a zone
Sprays: 15mins a zone
If you have any questions about setting your irrigation feel free to give Aspen a call at 839-6135.
