Custom-Designed Arbors and PergolasMay 8, 2018, 8:00 am

arbors and pergolas

With warm weather comes outdoor entertainment! It’s the perfect time to install that arbor or pergola you’ve been dreaming about and get prepared for your spring and summer celebrations.

At TenderCare Lawn and Landscape, we will construct a custom-designed arbor or pergola to match the appearance of your existing architecture or, if you’re looking to remodel, we will build upon a new theme. Our arbors and pergolas perfectly fuse functionality with design, so you’ll have the perfect place for outdoor entertaining.

May is also Deck Safety Month, a great reminder to inspect your current pergola or shade cover. Check to see if there’s any wood that’s decayed, rotted or if there are loose connectors. TenderCare is happy to update your current pergola or even replace it!

With Memorial Day coming up, there will be extra time to schedule service and get started on your lawn and landscape projects! View our gallery of arbors and pergolas here and contact us to schedule service.

Start Spring PlantingApril 6, 2018, 8:25 am

As spring arrives, garden soil warms up and makes it the perfect environment for vegetable seeds to thrive. April is a great time to plant peas, peppers, carrots, and beets. Herbs like basil, oregano, thyme and sage also thrive as the weather gets warmer.

If you’re looking to brighten up your landscape this spring, plant bare root perennials, summer-blooming annuals, flowering shrubs, and citrus trees this month. These will grow and bloom during late spring and throughout the summer to keep your garden looking beautiful.

Remember to be mindful of the unpredictable Kansas weather this time of year. Protect your plants from extreme wind by using stakes and making a temporary windbreak with burlap or a plastic screening. Keep an eye out for sudden cold snaps, too. It helps to water before a freeze because the water insulates plants and helps them withstand cold damage. You can also place an old blanket or cloth over plants to trap soil heat during chilly nights.

If you’re wanting to improve your landscape this spring, we can help! See our selection of nursery plantings here and don’t hesitate to contact us for questions or to set up service!

Schedule Your Fall ChoresSeptember 8, 2016, 1:02 pm

TC.Blog.FallChores.916.header

Fall is just around the corner, and it’s never too early to plan your needs and schedule your lawn renovation! TenderCare offers a variety of services that are great for restoring your lawn and landscape that may be damaged from the summer heat.

Fall weather is the perfect atmosphere for planting lawns, trees and shrubs. The cooler temperatures are gentler on developing roots, and the natural water supply from rainfall during the fall can give your plants the best start to growing. There are also fewer insects and disease problems that can damage new trees and shrubs in the fall.

Another service that should be done to lawns each fall is core aeration. Core aeration loosens compacted soil and improves growth, providing many benefits to your lawn. This allows more air, water and nutrient movement to root zones and increases the effectiveness of fertilizer and seed growth.

In addition to planting and core aeration, we can also treat your lawn and landscape with slit seeding or hydroseeding. Schedule your fall chores today to ensure that your lawn is healthy going into the cooler seasons! Call 316-788-5416 or send us an email.

Extreme Temperatures and Your LandscapeNovember 19, 2014, 12:55 pm

Like people, landscape plantings need time to adjust to extreme temperatures. Temperatures in Kansas vary greatly, especially during October and November. They plummet at night, and some cold weather temperatures struggle to even reach freezing. South Central Kansas will likely see some damage come Springtime from the extreme and rapidly changing temperatures. While many plantings will adapt to Mother Nature, others will struggle this Spring. Some plantings, like Crape Myrtle, may actually die back to the ground and require pruning to remove dead wood. It is important to not prune too early and give plantings time to recover. In many cases, being patient will pay off. Previous year’s growth may be sacrificed, but older plantings have well established root systems and will recover. Each plant is different and should be analyzed by late spring to determine what is best for long-term success.

This Spring, be sure to check the bark on trees for splitting. This can sometimes happen from extreme temperature swings when the plant has not had the ability to enter a progressive dormancy period. So, dead branches, or existing plants, show little or no new growth above ground. Start checking to see if the growth comes from below the ground near the base of the plant. If so, it is a good sign!

When Mother Nature deals us one of her evil tricks, it is best to not overreact. Rather, be patient and call your landscape professional, as needed, to help assess your options. Unless a branch is broken or is in imminent danger to a structure or blocking a road, wait it out. Let ice melt off of bent branches, and let them return back to their original form. Shaking frozen branches is never a good idea.

Remember to water newer, less established lawns, trees and shrubs during periods of dry, winter weather. Any time temperatures are above freezing and the ground is not frozen, give new plantings a drink to help keep them alive. Check the soil around your lawn and landscape with a screwdriver. You should be able to insert it into the ground, but if not, chances are that things are dry. Generally, a good soaking once every 14-21 days during dry, winter months will suffice.

Don’t forget: the number one rule regarding plantings this Spring will be patience!
