Parkville Landscaping Basics

In Missouri, Parkville is a beautiful little oasis for anyone looking to purchase a home. Parkville landscaping is an important part of keeping these homes beautiful with a high home value. The landscaping in the Kansas City area is prestigious and often based around the many fountains the city holds. However, not every home needs to go all out. Here are some basic Parkville landscaping needs to get your home started. 

Drainage

The midwest maintains a large rain season in the spring. Without the proper drainage system, your lawn can be washed away time and time again with each rainfall. This can cause foundation damage and more cost in lawn repair in the future than the initial drain. Take the time to have your lawn evaluated for any drainage issues before it causes you more problems in the future.

Mulch

Mulch is the foundation of many landscaping beds. It holds moisture and nutrients that releases to the plants slower to promote their health and growth. Some plants thrive more in rock than mulch. Make sure to consult your landscaper before planting to ensure the correct plants for your Parkville landscaping bed.

Fertilizer

Lawn care basics include regular mowing and regular fertilizer applications. For the midwest area 7 applications a year is the recommended amount to keep your grass green and healthy. The applications are a combination of pre-emergents, slow release, and pest reducing chemicals. All 7 applications combined create a stable grass growth. It is not the only thing your lawn needs, but it is one of the most basic and important items in lawn care.
