Labor Day to mid-September (especially in shade) is the best time in Kansas City to seed your lawn and July is the best time to evaluate it.
TIME FOR A LAWN REVIEW
EARLY FALL is by far the best time to go all out for a fabulous lawn next spring.Our Garden Center landscape crews can aerate, verticut, seed and apply starter fertilizer for you. Please let us know ASAP if you need to sign up for these services since our schedule fills quickly, and you want to take advantage of the best time of year for success.
Some plants may have droopy leaves in the middle of the day if heat and wind kicks up.
AFTERNOON LEAF WILT
Plants droop when leaves lose more water thru evaporation than roots can supply. Assuming the plant is in the right spot for its sun/shade needs, it doesn’t always mean the soil is dry. Before grabbing the hose, wait until the next morning to see if they perk up. If so, they may not need water. Reduce the odds to overwater by putting your finger an inch or two in the ground near the plant base. If the soil is moist you can probably hold off on watering and check again in a few days.
Thank you for your business!
