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.

Healthy Lawn, Healthy Environment

Caring for your Lawn in an Environmentally Friendly Way

Picture a healthy green lawn: perfect for lounging, great for ball games and cookouts, a real asset to your home. But did you know that your lawn–and how you take care of it–can also help the environment?  Healthy grass provides feeding ground for birds, who find it a rich source of insects, worms, and other food. Thick grass prevents soil erosion, filters contaminants from rainwater, and absorbs many types of airborne pollutants, like dust and soot. Grass is also highly efficient at converting carbon dioxide to oxygen, a process that helps clean the air. Caring for your lawn properly can both enhance its appearance and contribute to its environmental benefits. You don’t have to be an expert to grow a healthy lawn. Just keep in mind that the secret is to work with nature. This means creating conditions for grass to thrive and resist damage from weeds, disease, and insect pests. It means setting realistic goals for your lawn, whether you or a professional lawn care service will be doing the work. (more…)
