We recently worked with Lifestyle Outdoor to expand the landscape design in our backyard. Working with Justin Simpson and his team was a great experience. We were very pleased with Justin’s design recommendations. He listened to our ideas, and came up with a great plan that exceeded our expectations. He was very responsive and met all commitments when he said he would. The crew did an awesome job executing all the changes. We really appreciated how careful they were to ensure minimal impacts to our existing landscape, and how they cleaned up everything when they were done. We’ve gotten a number of compliments on our yard and have been happy to recommend Lifestyle Outdoor, and will continue to do so!Gary W.
Wonderful service, friendly workers – our lawns have never looked this good. The mowers take their time and don’t race through the yards.
Everyone seems to take pride in what they are doing. Justin you and your crew are great.
Turf Maintenance FAQs
We get a lot of questions about turf; here are some answers.
Whats the best way to kill grubs in my lawn?
The best ingredients to kill grubs are carbaryl or trichlorfon. Treatment should take place in spring or fall and you should ALWAYS wear rubber gloves and rubber boots when applying. You need to irrigate the lawn with a half inch of water and allow grass to dry before you allow anyone (human or pet) near the treated area. It can be an involved process and one that’s we recommend leaving to professionals.
Why do I have brown spots in my lawn?
A first thing to check is that your dog or your neighbors’ dogs aren’t peeing in your grass, because that will definitely cause brown patches. Grubs and brown patch disease are the two main causes. Brown patch disease can be caused by excess thatch, poor mowing practices, too much fertilizer, compacted soil, soil damage, excessive heat, and humidity. Through regular lawn maintenance we can prevent brown patch disease.
What is the best way to kill Bermuda grass?
Bermuda grass is an invasive weed to our mainly-fescue lawns in and around Kansas City. They do make specific herbicides designed to kill Bermuda grass if that’s a route you want to go. Some choose to go with solarization by mowing the Bermuda short, stretching plastic over it and anchoring the plastic in place with bricks or heavy stones, and allowing the sheets to stay in place for about a month or two. You can also choke them out with mulching.
What height should I mow my lawn?
For cool-season grass, which is most of what we have around KC, we always aim for about 2.5 inches for lawns. The trick is to mow often enough that you only cut the top third of the blade of grass, because that keeps it plush and growing. Grass cut too short can get tough and die.
