Turf Tek Lawn & Landscape “Custom-Quality.”

Founder and President, Dustin Young, founded a lawn & landscape company in 1996 known to many as One Guy & a Mower.  Due to the growth of the company, in 2001 Turf Tek Lawn & Landscape replaced the name of One Guy & a Mower.  After all, it doesn’t make much sense to call yourself One Guy & a Mower if you’ve got more than one guy!  The only thing that changed though was the name.  When we say “Custom-Quality” that’s what we mean.   We are a full service firm offering a wide variety of services that are custom tailored to your needs.  Our services range from: mowing, landscape design and installation, irrigation, power washing, aeration and verti-cutting, fall clean-ups, retaining walls, accent lighting, finish grading, shrub trimming, landscape renovation, new lawn installation, and more!  If it involves the exterior of your home or office, we do it!  Our unsurpassed quality and close attention to detail still remains today just like it did back then.  Founder and President, Dustin Young, is a 2002 graduate of Lee’s Summit High School.  After graduating Dustin enrolled in the Horticulture and Agribusiness program at Metropolitan Community College’s Longview Campus.  Having taken these classes, Dustin passes along the latest and most up to date green industry practices and know how to you.

Water Deeply But Not Too Often

Watering properly will help your lawn grow deep roots that make it stronger and less vulnerable to drought. Most lawns are watered too often but with too little water. It’s best to water only when the lawn really needs it, and then to water slowly and deeply. This trains the grass roots down. Frequent shallow watering trains the roots to stay near the surface, making the lawn less able to find moisture during dry periods. (more…)
