Our Services

Lawn Care (maintenance)

Great lawns start at the roots, which is why it’s so important that your lawn is healthy and well maintained year round, not just during the growing season.

Hedge Trimming

We can help keep all those hedges and shrubs from getting out of control. Gards Lawn Maintenance will trim them down to size, and get them into shape, literally.

Flowerbed Mulching

Spring is coming and it’s time to start thinking about mulching your flower beds for the summer. Natural mulch is extremely beneficial for a flower bed.

6- Step Fertilizer and Weed control program

At Gard’s Lawn Maintenance we don’t just make your lawn beautiful we also create a healthy turf area for you to enjoy all year long. We have partnered with suppliers that provide us the most cutting-edge fertilizer and weed control products available. The suppliers we use are in the transition zone (the same zone as us!) so with our partnership we are able to create a very region specific fertilizer and weed control program for the Kansas City area.

Step 1

Our first fertilizer and weed control step is a pre-emergent crabgrass and other broadleaf weed control such as dandelions, clover and chickweed the fertilizer will also help wake the yard up from its winter dormancy. This service will be performed very early in the spring.

Step 2

Our second step of the fertilizer and weed control program is a broadcast post-emergent spray to help control any breakthrough from the first treatment. This will be the only broadcast treatment performed unless we notice other issues such as POA annual, fungus or other conditions conducive to turf damage.

Step 3

This is the second pre-emergent control measure for crabgrass and other weeds. There will also be another slow-release fertilizer to help the lawn establish a healthy root system prior to the hot summer conditions we have in the Kansas City area.

Step 4

This is another root building fertilizer treatment and is also a preventative grub control treatment. This step is vital to help the lawn care program succeed, your grass will likely still go dormant if it’s a cool season lawn however it will bounce back much quicker in the fall!

Step 5

This will be the fall restoration fertilizer, as your yard begins to come out of summer dormancy this will help it bounce back as quickly as possible and help it come back to a green color. This is also a fantastic time to address aeration and over seeding which is a service we over at a discounted rate for our fertilizer and weed control clients.

Step 6

This fertilizer and weed control treatment is your winterizer fertilizer, this is a very slow-release fertilizer that is designed to be applied in the late fall/ early winter to help slowly supply nutrients to the yard. It is designed to be applied with some leaves on the ground so do not worry if you haven’t raked the yard yet. It will get to the soil through disturbances such as wind, rain and foot traffic.

During the 2023 season we had excessive drought conditions in the area, so we were able to see side by side comparisons to our program vs our competitors and diy programs. During our observations we noticed that the lawns that were being treated with 4 step programs and even one that were 7 or 8 steps that the leaf blades on the grass were nice and big with very weak and small root structures. When excessive heat and drought conditions come about that is when you see the difference between our program and the generalized programs big companies or diy programs are built on.

When you have a “top heavy” lawn typically that is an indicator of a heavy liquid fertilizer or too much nitrogen being applied to the lawn. When you introduce too much nitrogen it forces the blades to grow and expend all its energy on that as opposed to building the root system which will create a healthy robust lawn.

Our Latest Projects

Core Aeration

Core aeration is an important part of keeping your yard healthy especially with the clay soil we have in Excelsior Springs, Kearney and Liberty area. Clay soil is very difficult to have a healthy environment to grow healthy turf due to how easily it compacts and lets water run right off it. How we solve that issue is by using a professional grade core aerator to pull 2”-4” plugs out of even the nastiest rock-hard dirt!

When those cores are pulled and left in the lawn to break down you are supplying your soil with nutrients, allowing the soil to hold moisture, and allowing air to reach the root system and promote deeper growth. All of that naturally promotes a healthier lawn and makes your soil softer which will increase the success of any fertilizer or soil amendments you may want to put down.

Core Aeration

Over-seeding is an important service to have a great looking lawn year-round. In the Excelsior Springs, Kearney and Liberty area we have hot summers and cold winters. Those two conditions really shorten the life expectancy of the cool season turf types we typically see here.

Overseeding helps to replace that grass that has died off in the last year, this is typically something you will want to have done at least once a year. There are two prime times of year you will want to have overseeding performed, the first is right around early fall and the second is in the early springtime. You want to have your grass seed develop a healthy root system before it has to stand up to harsh winter or summer conditions.

All of our seed is a premium product and is guaranteed to be 100% free of weed seed and crop seed. We do not deviate from this due to the quality issue observed from inferior quality seed.
