However, the landscape doesn't have to take a back seat in the fall. Below are a couple of tasks to do this ...Read More...

Gee, it sure seems like Mother Nature and Old Man Winter are the neighborhood bullies at times.  But then again maybe it’s their way of making sure we don’t become creatures of habit---potatoes planted on St. Patrick’s Day, Crabgrass preventer applied before April 15th, first ...Read More...

This time of year a lot of people want to run inside and hibernate until the tulips and daffodils start flowering in the spring; and I can’t blame them. The sun comes up late and goes down early, the temperatures drop below freezing, and those Kansas winds seem to have more bite than bark. However, ...Read More...

As I had mentioned a few weeks ago, fall is a great time to trim back some shrubs.   But, what about those Junipers and that “Ogre” of a shrub I had mentioned earlier.    Junipers take very well to being trimmed during the dormant season.  While some prefer ...Read More...

            It’s getting to be that time of the year when all the leaves are starting to fall.  Even though big piles of leaves can provide entertainment for children, it may be necessary to clean them up.  If enough leaves fall ...Read More...

Whew!  Finally made it through this last “bite” of summer.  Time to enjoy that evening beer outside in your favorite spot (or if you’re a morning person like me, that morning cup of coffee).  Oh No!  Sammy the shrub and Vinnie the vine have confiscated your spot ...Read More...

Whew! You made it! We are on the downhill side of the year. The family has made it through the family vacation with all of its members still alive(which is a feat in and of itself).

With all the moisture we have been receiving as of late there have been a lot of consequences.

We may have had a cooler and wet spring this year, but the last couple weeks has really brought us back to the reality of Kansas weather in which we can go from cool jacket weather to sweltering humid heat in less than a week.   This gives us Kansans quite a challenge, both for ourselves and our ...Read More...

The Knock Out Rose has gained a lot of popularity over the last few years and for good reason! The shrub doesn’t require much care and still puts on one of the best shows in the landscape having a blooming cycle of every 5-6 weeks throughout the year to the first hard frost.
