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.

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.

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!
