Keep Your Lawn Healthy All Year LongNovember 9, 2018, 8:36 am

lawn program

Don’t forget about your lawn this fall and winter! The fall season is the ideal time for prepping your lawn for the unpredictable winter weather and getting it ready for spring.

TenderCare’s Lawn Program features six applications designed to keep your lawn healthy throughout each season. Each application is unique to your turf type and local weather conditions and will ensure that your lawn gets the proper nutrients to succeed.

In the fall, we add fertilizer to prepare your lawn for cold conditions and use weed control to prevent dandelions, henbit and chickweed. In the winter, we continue to fertilize cool season lawns to prepare for spring green-up. We also add weed control to warm season lawns to target winter annual weeds. Learn more about our Lawn Program applications here.

We’ll make sure that your lawn lasts through each and every season! Pre-pay for our Lawn Program now through December 10 and get 10% off. Contact us for more information or to sign up for our Lawn Program.

landscape design project

Interested in redesigning your backyard or simply adding a few new features to your landscape? The time to start planning is now!

Our landscape design team will work with you to begin the planning process, so everything is ready for installation by the time warmer weather comes around. We’ll determine a solid timeline for your project, starting with our four-step design process:

Step 1: We work with you, the homeowner, to determine your end goal and the elements required to get there. Our designers will collaborate with you to incorporate your ideas and budget to create a beautiful, finished project.

Step 2: We will go to your home to take measurements and perform a site inventory. This allows us to draw up an accurate design and choose materials that match the site.

Step 3: Our designers draw a concept to present to you, and we’ll discuss any needed changes before the final plan.

Step 4: We draw the final plan and present it to you along with an itemized estimate to install the landscape design.

Then, we get to work! At TenderCare, we are experienced in all phases of landscape design and construction and will work to ensure that you have a beautiful, functional and lasting landscape that you’ll always enjoy. Learn more here.

In addition, we’ll make sure that your landscape is properly maintained as the years go by. Learn about our Lawn Program here.

It’s Time for Fall PlantingOctober 11, 2018, 8:22 am

fall planting

While spring might be associated with planting to brighten flower beds, fall offers many benefits for growing plants. Almost anything can be planted in the fall, and your hard work will be worth it when next spring arrives.

The cooler weather of fall is easier on growing plants (and gardeners!), and the soil is still warm, allowing for the roots to grow until there’s a freeze. It’s best to plant at least six weeks before the ground freezes to ensure that your plants withstand wintery weather.

In addition, fall planting can be more convenient. Pest and disease problems are less likely in autumn, and you don’t need fertilizer. Fertilizer causes plants to actively grow and expand, making them more likely to be damaged by the cold.

Ready to get started? Spring-blooming bulbs, perennials, pansies, cool-season vegetables (carrots, cabbage, lettuce, radishes, spinach, etc.), turfgrass, trees and shrubs all thrive in the fall. Take a look at our nursery to get inspired!

Finally, don’t forget to water! It can be easy to forget since the weather is cooler, but be sure to water your fall plantings if there hasn’t been soaking rain for 10-14 days.

If you have any questions about fall planting or would like to schedule service, contact us.

Get a Brisk Start on FallAugust 17, 2018, 2:44 pm

Colder weather will be here before we know it! Fall is the perfect time to give your lawn a fresh start. At TenderCare, we offer a variety of services for cool season lawns and landscapes damaged from the summer weather.

Fall is the ideal time to focus on your lawn. Core aeration loosens dry, compacted soil from the summer heat and improves growth, providing many benefits to your lawn. Aerating allows more air, water and nutrients to move to root zones and increases the effectiveness of fertilizer seed growth.

Another important lawn chore is overseeding, which helps to prevent thinning in your lawn and can fill in the patchy areas. Check out our Lawn Program here to learn how TenderCare will keep your lawn healthy and thriving throughout the year.

In addition to keeping your lawn in tip-top shape, now is a great time to start thinking about new landscape plantings. The cooler temperatures of fall are gentler on the roots of new lawns, trees and shrubs, and fall rainfall can give them the boost they need to start growing. There are also fewer insects and disease problems that can cause damage in the fall.

Schedule your fall chores today and we’ll ensure that your lawn is healthy going into the fall and winter seasons! Contact us to schedule service by calling 316-788-5416 or by filling out our contact form.

Enjoy Your Pool All Summer LongJuly 24, 2018, 8:22 am

pool maintenance

Summer weather in Kansas continues into September, so make sure your pool is splash-ready all season long with adequate pool maintenance. The sight of a clean, clear pool creates the perfect environment to jump right in!

It’s important to make sure your pool water is properly circulating and clean. Circulation will help minimize algae buildup and prevent cloudy water, but you should also do your part in regularly vacuuming, skimming and brushing your pool as well as keeping the filters clean.

Don’t forget to also maintain the right water level for your pool and ensure that it is properly chlorinated. The pH should be between 7.4 and 7.6, alkalinity should be around 100-140 ppm, and calcium hardness should be around 200-400 ppm.

At TenderCare, we help customers with as much or as little maintenance as they need. We not only want your pool to look nice, but we also want it to run efficiently. Our pool experts help with weekly pool cleanings, chemical balance checks, and pool openings and closings.

Learn more about our services here or contact us to schedule service today!

Make the Most of Your Small BackyardJune 19, 2018, 8:39 am

make the most of a small backyard

City living comes with smaller backyards, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice beauty or entertainment! At TenderCare Lawn and Landscape, our designers will work with you to determine the perfect solution for your space.

A small backyard can be maximized through simplification. Consider using outdoor furniture made of a lightweight, less bulky frame, built-in seating, and a hidden storage option. In addition, choose plants that are easy to manage and tall and narrow rather than large and wide. Plants like ivy and vines along your walls or fence will add greenery without sacrificing room in your backyard.

Another way to add appeal to a small backyard is by changing the elevation. Adding steps or an elevated platform can create added interest and an extra outdoor “room” to make the space seem larger.

You can also play to your smaller space by enclosing the area. Use vertical plantings or install a pergola to create more privacy and intimacy. Your backyard will feel more like an extension of your home and bring a coziness that you can’t get with a large backyard.

Finally, choose great lighting to illuminate your space. Sconces can highlight specific areas without taking up much room, and string lighting can add warmth to an enclosed space.

Let us help you design your dream backyard! Contact us via our contact form or call 316-788-5416 and check out our gallery of work.

Get a Jump on Summer ChoresJune 4, 2018, 1:32 pm

Don’t let your lawn and landscape get ruined by the summer heat!

Let TenderCare help you get a jump start on your summer chores. We offer a number of services to help protect your lawn and landscape from the hot, damaging temperatures.

To avoid a dry lawn, remember to evaluate your irrigation system and maintain a proper watering schedule. The best time to water is early in the morning or just before sunrise, so you can avoid overwatering. Remember, cool season lawns only need about one inch of moisture each week. If you have any issues with your sprinkler system, we can help! Learn more here.

It’s also important to check your lawn and plants for worms and fungus. Cool season lawns can get brown patch fungus in the summer, so it’s important to monitor. In addition, you should keep an eye on evergreens for bagworms and watch petunias for unwanted budworms. If you need help with insect control, check out our services.

Finally, we know you’ll be needing to mow a lot this summer. Fortunately, we offer mowing services so you can sit back and relax while we do the work! If you choose to mow yourself, remember to check the recommended mowing height for your lawn. For example, if you have fescue, raise the cutting height to 3 1/2 inches.

Let TenderCare Lawn and Landscape take care of your summer chores! Contact us to schedule service by calling 316-788-5416 or by filling out our contact form.
