Deep Root Tree Fertilization

Deep Root Tree Fertilization, or any landscape planting fertilization for that matter, is one of the most overlooked opportunities to keep your landscape thriving.

Most folks understand the importance of fertilizing their lawn. It just makes sense. But when it comes landscape plantings, shrubs, and trees… we often get a sort of confused look from folks when we ask about fertilization of these areas. 

Fertilizing shrubs, plants, trees will help keep landscape plantings strong. Strength is important as this helps safeguard against limb damage and debris that can often result from summer storms. Strength often comes from the ground up. Meaning, the upper portion or canopy of a tree need to have good-deep roots. Roots spread out and deep to secure water, nutrients and other needs to keep the tree thriving. 

While we target a Deep Root Tree Fertilization application at your existing trees, pairing this visit with a landscape bed pre-emergent or landscape bed fertilization is a win win. 

Deep Root Tree Fertilization applications starting around $85.00 and go up from their depending on tree quantity and size. Pairing these visits with other Turf Management or Tree and Shrub applications is a sure way to get more bang for your buck!

Platte City Mowing Service

Our mowing service routes are just about filled up for the season, but there’s still a few spots to add here in our hometown of Platte City. If you find yourself dreading the grind of mowing week after week, or simply want a professionally mowed and manicured lawn, our lawn maintenance teams are ready to help. 

It’s funny, quite often we hear feedback when meeting with new customers like, “Yeah, I see your trucks everywhere.” This is pretty cool and received as a compliment. I can remember the first time I pulled up to an intersection while in a Winkler’s Lawn Care truck and saw another Winkler’s truck drive by. Now a day, it’s a routine occurrence, but one not to be taken for granted.

When folks share with us that they see our trucks everywhere mowing here, landscaping there, fertilizing at the neighbors… well, I receive it as a bit of a challenge. A good reputation and a commitment to servicing customers year over year is what has allowed those types of moments to happen. Now, we have an even harder task of managing the work that is in motion and continuing to build on the trust and relationships that we have.

Knowing when to say the mowing route is full is just an example of that. The fact is, we can’t cut everyone’s grass. Nor do we want to! But, if your next door or right around the corner to a property we are already providing mowing services or turf management for… THEN absolutely, we’d love to take the lawn maintenance off your hands! Think of all the extra time you could spend enjoying your back yard instead of having to work in it!

Weekly mowing services starting around $40 per week. Occasionally, we can work in a vacation mow or mow for someone who is in need due to a mower repair. If you need a hand this summer with your lawn work, let us know. We’re here to help and keep your lawn and our city looking good.

Social Media for Landscapers

What’s going on here? Here’s a fine example of landscaping in action by Winkler’s Lawn Care & Landscape. At first, the tripod holding the laser may appear like a camera stand used by a film crew. In some cases, we may have a camera staged to track a project, but obviously in this landscape action shot the tripod is just a laser.

Odds are if we are on your property you’ll see our crew taking a few moments during the job to set up a camera. We may pause and to a few takes explaining what it is we are doing as we perform a particular activity for a project. We may also get some video or photos of our team interacting with customers and one another.  We do these things for many reason and these go beyond just some witty post on social media.  

One reason in particular is that by visually documenting the progress of a job, we are able to teach future generations of landscapers. Winkler’s Lawn Care & Landscape even has an education website of it’s own dedicated to training staff. 

Another reason we do this is that it makes our team more relate-able across multiple methods of social media. Sure, we may just be landscapers, turf guys, mowing dudes or whatever you label it… but we’re still people, not robots. When we capture goofy stuff during the day, we’re able to set our landscape team apart from other landscape companies out there. This has been a great social media tool to attract new folks to the team in terms of employment and also as clients. 

The videos we post on social media have also helped us improve the way we complete a landscape job. When we come to the table with a landscape bid or estimate for a patio… we know what it takes each step of the way. We’ve been able to capture standards to prove our landscape production rates taking what could be a “guess-estimate” into something more concrete. We like to think this is one of the things that makes our landscape team more professional!

So, through the winter months, we had a blast creating social media content for us landscapers on the website, facebook, instagram, and on youtube. As we move forward, there will be even more to come.

Alexa top ranked landscaper

Through the winter we asked Alexa a series of questions to see what she though about our company. One of those was, “Alexa who is a top ranked landscaper “. We were delighted that Alexa responded with, the phone number for Winkler’s Lawn Care a top ranked landscaper in Kansas City is 816-588-6434. 

This was a good memory for us and our team. A landscape project completed by a top ranked landscaper such as Winkler’s Lawn Care & Landscape may lead to many memories around a fire bit like the one shown above. 

The fact is, adding a landscape feature like a paver patio, firepit, and seating wall will more than likely increase your time outdoors enjoying the outdoor living space. It’s always a complement to hear from customers we’ve created these types of spaces for. We often hear how an outdoor living area was used to host a graduation party, birthday parties… or wonderful family dinners. An outdoor landscape area designed and installed by a top ranked landscaper can be just the space to need to enjoy time outside while kids run through the yard playing. 

…And, for when after the kids go to bed a fire pit can lead to intimate times with a spouse. Time to catch up on dreams, hopes, and plan the next vacation get-a-way. 

Do you need an outdoor living area to do this or have these kinds of moments… Nope. But an outdoor living area completed by a top ranked landscaper such as Winkler’s Lawn Care can certainly make things a little more enjoyable.
