  • September Suggestions | Landscape Materials | Ken-Mulch | Louisville

    September Suggestions Now that we are near the end of the summer season, it is time to roll up your sleeves and get ready for this amazing weather we are about to have. September is all about renovating your lawn before winter, cutting back shrubs, dividing and transplanting perennials, bringing in houseplants and preparing your ground for late season planting. Renovating the Lawn Some of the worst times can be when you have no idea why your lawn looks so bad! This time of year is the perfect time to fix that. Here are a couple pointers to help rejuvenate your lawn. Dethatch: Dethatching the lawn will keep your lawn happy and healthy. Think of it as losing a little bit of weight during the winter, so you can be nice and skinny for the spring. Reseed: Reseeding your lawn in the fall has many benefits. Good seed-to-soil contact happens through natural moisture and frost that only occur in late fall and winter. It also repairs the wear and tear of a hot and dry summer. Top 3 Grass Seed for Fall KY-31 KY Bluegrass Creeping Red Fescue Fertilize: The fall is the most important time of year to fertilize your lawn. The reason why is because the morning dew is a natural moisture that helps the fertilizer absorb into your lawn. This process is essential for a bright green lawn for the spring. Cutting, Removing, Reusing for Fall Don't worry, this will be the last time this year that you will be cutting back any shrubs or plants! You will also need to divide and transplant your perennials! Shaping the Shrubs Shaping shrubs for the fall is like shaving before no-shave November . It will be the last time for a while that they will be trimmed so make sure they are nice and pretty! Before Trim After Trim Divide and Transplant Perennials Dividing and Transplanting your perennials can be a tricky task. Here are the three simple steps to ensure you do not kill and replant your beautiful perennials! Dig Them Up: It is essential that when you start this process that you do not kill the plant before dividing it or replanting it. When digging, try to not destroy the root system of the plant. Dig a wide enough area around the plant to make sure you do not damage the roots. Divide one, into many: Transplant: Transplant is just a fancy word for replanting! Enjoy your new perennials without even having to spend money! Dividing your perennials is the trickiest part. Once you have dug up your plant, shake the soil off of the roots, then start splitting the plant up. You can use a knife, shovel, or your hands. Try to keep the root system intact! Bring in those Houseplants! Most house plants will die if you don't bring them in on chilly September nights so make sure to bring in your colorful houseplants soon! If you see any plants that look like yours, BRING THEM INSIDE! Preparing Your Ground for Late Season Planting Preparing your soil for late season planting can be done in 3 simple steps: Till that ground up! Feed your soil! Water like you don't have a water bill! Till it up! Tilling your land is no fun task but by breaking up the soil, it will make planting easier, it will make your ground healthier, and it will allow new nutrients to integrate into the ground.

  • December Blog | Ken-Mulch

    December Decisions December is the slow time of year for landscaping. At least for most of us, especially here in Louisville at Ken-Mulch. Cold weather, snow, and sleet really make it hard for anyone to want to be outside working on your landscape. For those somewhat sunny days, here are some tips to keep in mind. We Are Back To Houseplants! If you do not have your houseplants inside by now, they are more than likely dying. Here are some pointers about houseplants that are hopefully already inside your home. Watering Houseplants You do not have to water your houseplants every single day. Depending on size and type of plant, the typical houseplant only needs to be watered every 7-14 days. Sunlight With Houseplants The recommendation for sunlight for most houseplants is 5-6 hours. Putting plants in window sills or near windows with direct sun is very helpful for houseplants. Checking Your Houseplants For Bugs When you bring in houseplants, sometimes you can bring in bugs with them. You want to get rid of these bugs as fast as possible because they can multiply fast in warm environments. The way you can get rid of bugs in houseplants is by spraying organic pest control or spraying water and soap mixture and see if that does the trick. Water Your New Plants! If you planted any new plants in late fall, find a few times a week to water those new plants. Even when it is cold, new plants need to be established and cared for no matter what the weather is like. Keep Raking The Leaves! Try to get the leaves off of the lawn before the snow ends up on top of it. Dead leaves are not good for your lawn and if you can get them up before a big snow comes, it will really help the health of your grass. In the spring, your lawn will love you if you pick up those leaves. We'll See You Next Year!
