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.
We get a lot of questions about winterizing; here are some answers.
What is winterization?
Any preparation done to protect against the damaging effects of winter counts as winterization. Spreading mulch around some plants, trimming, covering grills and patio furniture or moving them indoors, raking up acorns, wrapping some trees or shrubs, and moving potted plants indoors are all examples of winterization.
When should I winterize my lawn?
In Kansas City, we are mostly working with cool-season grasses. It’s best to winterize cool-season grasses with two separate applications of an appropriate fertilizer. One fertilization should be in the early fall, the second would be, typically, mid-November.
Should grass be left short or long for winter?
Part of winterizing your lawn is trimming the grass to the shortest point it’s been at all year. If you want to break out a ruler (which we won’t judge), you’d want your grass to be about 2.5 inches high. This will allow it to continue providing nutrients to the roots while preventing frost from matting up and killing the grass.
Should gardens be covered in the winter?
It’s a good idea to cover your gardens or flower beds with a layer of mulch. This protects the soil but doesn’t suffocate it.
