Gas lit Fire Pit and Patio

Our landscape design guys come up with some pretty cool projects. Last year we were able to work on this project for a homeowner in Weatherby Lake area of Kansas City. The project features a gas lit fire pit, wall block seating walls both made from Belgard Retaining Wall stone. A set of flagstone slabs created an stepping stone pathway to a paver patio. A light mix of native plants framed the patio area separating an upper and lower set of retaining walls. 

The front and sides of the home received a little bit of landscape enhancement work as well. These areas had some drainage features installed to carry excess rain water away from the home keeping the basement dry! The front landscape beds were enhanced with natural stone to create a natural stone edging which separated the mulch beds from the turf regions. 

It’s not every day that we get to do a Gas lit Fire Pit and Patio. So, when we do, we value those opportunities and want to make an impact through providing these type of landscaping services that goes beyond just a “one-off” project. This project is one of those times that we’ve built a good relationship with the homeowner and more landscape opportunity is in the works!

A fun noteworthy perk to this project is how while we completed the work we were able to meet and build relationships with other homeowners in the cul-de-sac. As we write this, a meeting for followup landscape work is set for later this week. We also happen to have a landscape meeting scheduled the same day to discuss a paver patio and other landscape work with a neighbor adjacent to the proud owner of this Gas lit Fire Pit and Patio.

Mowing Service Near Me

When we hear from new customers we often ask, “How did you hear about us?” If the answer isn’t from a neighbor or friend, the response is usually something like, “I googled “mowing service near me.””
 
So, if you are looking for a mowing service near me, we’re glad you found us. We’ve been around a bit, 20 years actually.  We also plan to be around many more!
 
If you’re new to Winkler’s, there are a few things that we do a little differently than some mowing services out there. For one most of our customers receive 2 or 3 different types of lawn and landscape services beyond just mowing services. They value having a knowledgeable company onsite and one that has an office staff in place to help manage questions that come up throughout the season. 
 
To be honest, most of our customers have been with us many seasons. Over half of the 800-1000 customers we service in a given year have been using Winklers Lawn Care & Landscape for 3 years or more. (we do not mow for 800-1000 customers, that is across all services we provide)
 
In an industry that typically has a high turn over rate, we have been fortunate to build a lawn care & landscape brand that is the neighborhood “go to” for many neighborhoods throughout Platte City, Parkville, Gladstone, Liberty, Smithville, and Kansas City. It just seems fitting then, that we would be the mowing services near me (you).
 
What is the catch… we don’t take on more properties than what our mowing crews can effectively handle. Just as we expect our customers to be choosy about finding the right fit for them, we have to be choosy about what clients we service. 
 
A few seasons back, we began only providing services for customers that we provide turf management (fertilization and weed control) service for. This was tough. We felt it was the right thing to do because it is not fair for us to carry weeds from a non fertilized and weed controlled property to one that is working hard and paying extra to keep weeds out! 
 
Too, lawns that are fertilized and watered, typically grow a little more in a season. This allows our staff to have more consistent work through the year. As a result, Winklers Lawn Care is able to attract an employee a higher caliber to provide these services. Lets face it, a good employee can’t afford to live of of 7 or 8 months of work. 
 
If you think Winkler’s is the mowing service near me (you), that you would like to have provide your lawn or landscape services, let us know. Click here to contact a mowing service near me (you).
