Lawn Care & Landscape Reviews

Search engines have a significant impact in how potential lawn care or landscape customers find landscape companies. Lawn Care & Landscape Reviews are even more critical in connecting customers to good companies. We like to think that we’re a top ranked landscape company, but we really need the help of our customers to help prove this. 

Over the years, we have had tons of nice feedback from existing landscape or lawn care customers. We have placed customer testimonials around the website and shared on facebook from time to time. However, the best way for these lawn care reviews to be captured and shared is through customer reviews on facebook or reviews on google.

If you’ve been a customer and are up for providing a review, we would be hugely grateful!

Here’s how to do so on Google:

2.  Click on blue box in upper right hand corner called “write a review”
3.  Check the stars you approve as appropriate – 5 stars being the best
4.  Click on Share details and type in your review
5.  Double click on photo if you would like to upload a photo of your finished job/ or property
6. Click on the “post” button

*If you have troubles doing so, give our office a call and we can walk you through it!

$25 Gift Card




As promised, we wanted to reward our existing customer base for helping grow our business. We had some fun today as we were out performing turf applications and came up with an idea to give away some gift cards for referrals. Check out the video we made here to learn more: https://www.facebook.com/WinklersLawnCareKC/videos/1912277325480690/

Here’s how it works…

Step 1) Refer Winkler’s Lawn Care to someone you know that is in the market for a fertilization and weed control program. You can even do this by commenting with their name on the comment section of the video link above!

Step 2) “Like” the video AND “Share” it to your personal facebook page. Again, the video link is: https://www.facebook.com/WinklersLawnCareKC/videos/1912277325480690/

The prize… if a referral you send to Winkler’s Lawn Care & Landscape enrolls in a Turf Management Program for the season, we will send you a $25.00 gift card to Sonic. Send multiple referrals… get multiple gift cards. 

*Disclaimer… The deadline for having folks sign up for the Turf Program is April 1st, 2018. The video mentions 1 gift card… We decided that wasn’t enough. We’re giving away 10 gift cards valued at $25.00 each.

Landscape Maintenance Visit

Landscape Maintenance Visit


There are just too many months between spring and fall for landscape plantings to grow without the guidance of  a little tlc. To help customers maintain an attractive landscape all season long, we off stand alone landscape maintenance visits and ongoing monthly landscape maintenance visits. 

Unless your landscape is a one of a kind garden comprising of thousands of square feet of landscape beds or hundreds upon hundreds of landscape plantings… a monthly landscape maintenance visit can likely be performed in an hours time by our landscape maintenance crews. 
A typical monthly landscape maintenance visit would include services such as:
Landscape Bed and Tree Ring Weeding
Selective pruning and shaping of landscape plantings
Removal of debris and disposal of organic material from landscaped areas
Pre ergent weed control application to suppress future weeds from popping up
Spot spraying of hard to control weeds, like grasses, that can take over a landscape bed
These landscape maintenance services give our landscape maintenance crews an opportunity to inspect your plantings on a regular basis and from there identify if additional services may be needed. Additional services like Tree and shrub applications can be performed to manage outbreaks related to pest issues such as bagworm or fungal outbreaks as needed.
And, from time to time, it may be noticed that a drainage issue has developed or a plant is in need of replacement. With our experienced landscaper staff onsite we can communicate these concerns pro actively to help you make the right decisions to properly manage your property. 
Give us a call or schedule an appointment for a landscape maintenance visit or to receive an estimate on landscape maintenance visit pricing. Click here to Contact Winkler’s.

Mulch and Landscape Pre-emergent

Mulch and Landscape Pre-Emergent

#mulch 🚛🚛🚛👊💥

Posted by Winkler's Lawn Care & Landscape, LLC on Friday, March 2, 2018

Replenishing your Mulch beds or topdressing your mulch and landscape pre-emergent is by far one of the easiest ways to add curb appeal to your home and show you landscape plantings that you care… let alone your neighbors. Our landscape crews have been unloading mulch trailer after mulch trailer to topdress mulch beds for customers. A bag of mulch is about 2 cubic feet, a wheel barrow of mulch holds about 4-5 cubic feet, and a trailer… well, a trailer of mulch can safely haul around 8 yards of mulch. That is about 220 cubic feet of mulch, or 48 wheel barrows, or 300 scoops using a tine pitch fork!

What is all of this rambling about? Winkler’s Lawn Care & Landscape knows mulch. You could say, we get mulch… we give mulch, we delivery mulch, apply mulch, sell mulch, and if it’s windy… we might even sail mulch. 

We completed some research with our friend Alexa through the winter… you know, Alexa the internet voice that answers questions you have ranging from what should I wear to Who is a top ranked landscaper in Kansas City. 

Kansas City is a much bigger town than little ole Platte City. Change the same questions to Alexa, Who is a top ranked landscaper in Platte City and sure enough, Alexa will respond with Winkler’s Lawn Care & Landscape and give our number out. Our hope is, that organically, we can build the right online presence so that when existing or new customers are asking Alexa who to call to get my mulch freshened up, Alexa will refer Winkler’s Lawn Care & Landscape for Kansas City as well as Platte City. 

From our perspective this is pretty cool. It’s also weird. We’ve never done work for Alexa, so why would she know to refer Winkler’s Lawn Care and Landscape? We’ll leave that question to the tech nerds. 

Now, when it comes to questions about mulch… We would love to hear from you. One question in particular is, when should I apply pre-emergent, or should I apply pre-emergent to my landscape beds? 

Absolutely! Applying a landscape bed pre-emergent will help keep your mulch beds weed free late into the season. The timing of this weed control application should be early, say March, and again in 6-12 weeks. We recommend multiple applications per season for best control of weeds in landscape beds.

Weed Control and Fertilizer

Weed Control and Fertilizer

How can I get rid of crabgrass in my yard? Ask A Landscaper.

Crabgrass. 😡😡😡 Josh dives into the steps you can take to annihilate the great ruiner of lawns known as crabgrass.

Posted by Winkler's Lawn Care & Landscape, LLC on Friday, March 2, 2018


Through the Winter months we dove into several of the questions that we are frequently asked and created a series called “Ask a Landscaper.” This was a fun project and utilized all of the staff and their experiences to create landscape content that was applicable, educational, and even fun! 

Crabgrass and Pre-emergent weed control is discussed in this video. It’s an excellent starter to gain understanding in Weed Control and Fertilization processes. If you’re looking for how tos in terms of weed control and fertilizer, check out other videos we have online at our youtube channel or peruse the site. 

Thanks for stopping by. If there’s more we can do to help you with your lawn maintenance or landscape needs, let us know. Round one of our Turf Management Program is underway and targeted at getting rid of crabgrass while giving your lawn a little dose of nitrogen fertilizer to make it green up!
