Is your Omaha lawn care plan battle-ready against weeds?
Omaha lawn care can be tricky, especially when it feels like a different season each day. Easter weekend was a prime example. Saturday, April 11th was a beautiful 70-degree day. Neighbors were out doing yard work and several commented that they were out to mow before the snow. You heard that right. Snow. Sunday’s temperatures were 30-40 degrees colder with 50+ mile winds and snow flurries. Although we can’t be certain about the weather from day-to-day, we can trust that days are getting longer; the soil is getting warmer and weeds will soon start to appear.
Now is the time to prepare to battle weeds. To have an advantage, it is good to arm yourself with knowledge about weeds common in the Omaha metro area. By learning how to identify common Midwest weeds as well as what you can do to protect your lawn, you can win the battle against weeds!
Which products are best for your lawn?

Happy first day of Spring!
Although this winter was milder than past winters, having a variety of warm days mixed with cold gave many an extended case of Spring Fever (including us here at Paradise Lawns). Weather is always unpredictable in the Midwest and warm weather, just because Spring has been officially declared, is not guaranteed. However, the days continue to grow longer; warming the soil until it reaches the right temperature to set new growth in motion. Let’s look at 5 things you can do this spring to set your lawn up for success this summer.
Timing is everything
This past Sunday, approximately 100 million people tuned in to watch the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers in the 2020 Super Bowl. Training and teamwork got them to the Super Bowl, but timing determined the winner in the end. Unless each throw, tackle or catch is timed just right, the play isn’t successful. The ability to know when the time is right is an important element in many aspects of our lives, not just when we play sports. However, it is often overlooked until failure results from poor timing. You may wonder why a lawn care company is talking about timing and the Super Bowl. Even though the two don’t seem to have much in common, both football and lawn care treatments need to be accurately timed in order to succeed. Fertilizing too early or too late may result in future problems, so timing is vital for your lawn’s success.
