Fall Grass Seeding
Help Your Lawn Beat the Heat
Few things compare to the beauty of a thick, green and lush Fescue lawn! In order to have that kind of beautiful lawn, annual seeding is required. Unlike Bermuda, Fescue grass does not regenerate from year to year. Fescue grass naturally thins and can become sparse, especially during the hot Kansas summer months.
How it Works
Typically, we begin seeding our customers’ lawns in mid-September. This is the best time of year as the daytime temperatures are beginning to decline but the soil temperatures are warm enough for seed germination. We core aerate the lawn, apply the proper rate of a high quality Fescue seed blend (one with 0% weed seed) and end with a starter fertilizer.
When To Fescue Seed Your Lawn
Fall is the best time to seed your lawn. The seeding window begins in September and starts to fade in late October.

Lawn Core Aeration
What Is Core Aeration?
Over time the top 2-3 inches of soil becomes compacted by water, drought, extreme temperatures and daily to extreme traffic. Compaction restricts the movement of water, oxygen, and nutrients to the roots of the plants. Limited movement of these crucial items causes root growth to be restricted, turf health decline, and turf to thin. Clay soils are especially susceptible to compaction and would greatly benefit from aeration yearly.
A Core Aeration is the process of removing small cores 1/2 to 1 inch in diameter and about 2 inches deep. If the soil if very compacted and dry it is best to water the lawn to 2-3 inches for optimal results.
The cores are removed and placed on the top of the soil by the aerator, the cores will break down returning the soil and the nutrients back to the lawn. Before the cores break down, the lawn will have a messy appearance. To reduce the messy appearance the cores can be raked to break them up quicker.
For extremely compacted soils a double aeration can be done.
When is The Best Time to Aerate Lawns?
Aeration is best for this type of turf when performed during early Fall and early Spring, it is most commonly associated with overseeding of the lawn.

Tree and Shrub Care
Tree and Shrub Spraying
We don’t recommend fertilizing your trees and shrubs that are in the turf as they are also receiving the fertilizer that the lawn is getting. We don’t want to over fertilize, stress or harm your trees and shrubs. For those trees that could use some additional nutrients and/or look like they need some extra attention give us a call and we will happily assess your trees and shrubs. The Premier professionals can come up with a plan for your exact trees and shrubs that will be beneficial in all areas.
Tree injections are the future in creating healthy trees while limiting the impact on the environment. We can inject your tree with nutrients, insecticides, or growth regulators to help your tree and its needs. Injections are usually best done in Spring or Fall and can last up to two years after treatment.
Kansas gets hit hard every year with damaging Bagworms that attack trees and shrubs. Premier is also your solution for Bagworms treatments. Those pesky worms usually arrive in June and July each year.
Landscape Bed Weed Control Programs
At Premier, we offer a complete Landscape Bed Weed Control program. It consists of an analysis of the type of weeds present; this is important because you may have annual or perennial weeds, which require different control strategies. We then create a plan to control them through a series of 4 or 5 applications. The applications are scheduled for specific times during the growing season and use both pre-emergent and post emergent weed control products. These programs control certain weeds before they emerge and become problems and also controls weeds already present. It is a superior program guaranteed to control all of the tough weeds in your landscape beds!
