  • 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. Feed Your Soil! Feeding your soil is essential during the fall because of the natural moisture that the fall season brings. Using organic fertilizers like Okolona Mix, Pine Fines and/or Compost can be great for your soil during this time of year.

  • June Blog | Ken-Mulch

    Welcome to Summer It's summer time! The sun is shining, school is out, and it is time to water those plants! June is the beginning of a dangerous time for plants. Why? Plants can be infested with summer bugs. Plants can also die easily because you may not be watering them enough. In this months blog, I hope we can help you keep all of your plants healthy throughout these hot summer months. Watch Out! The Bugs are Back! Watch out! The bugs are back and they are coming for your plants! There are three bugs that you should be concerned about during the summer months. The June Bug, the Japanese Beetle and the Bagworms. June Bug The June Bug only appears a few weeks per year. It is a small bug, but can do a lot of damage to your plants. They do not bite humans, but they feed on your plants during the night. Although these bugs are nocturnal, they are heavily attracted to light so it would be easy to spot them on your porch at night. ​ To get rid of these pests, it is best to hand pick them and drown them in a bucket of soap and water. Other than that, you can swat them or kill them in any way you deem necessary. Japanese Beetle Japanese Beetles are pack hunters. They travel in very large groups starting in June and prey on your plants all throughout the summer. ​ You will know that your plants are being invaded by Japanese Beetles because they leave holes in the leaves of your plants or you may find a sudden brown patch in your lawn. ​ The easiest way to get rid of these pests are through beetle traps and a chemical called Sevin. You can also hand pick them and drown them in water and soap. Bagworms Bagworms attack both deciduous and evergreens, but their favorite plants are junipers, arborvitaes and pine trees. ​ You can easily spot a bagworm cocoon because it looks like a pine cone. Unless it is on a pine tree, you would know that this particular object is not supposed to be on your plant. ​ You can get rid of bagworms by simply cutting the cocoon off of your plant or you can spray the plant or tree with a bagworm repellent. The best time to spray is in June because the bagworms are small and vulnerable. Get Rid of Those Weeds! This time of year the weeds are spreading like wildfire. You need to keep up with your landscaping and lawn if you want it to be clean. Make sure that you pull the entire weed out, including the roots. Weed Preventers -Preen Garden Weed Preventer -RoundUp Spray Weed Preventer -Bonide Spray Weed Killer Water Them Plants!!! Your kids need water to live every day, so do your plants! This time of year it is best to water your plants twice a day. Once in the early morning and once in the evening when the sun is starting to go down.
