Ah, summer.

Warm weather, cookouts, baseball games, and of course, vacations. Because what would summer be without a nice, relaxing vacation, right?

Whether you’re planning on catching some rays on Myrtle Beach, checking out the iconic Cinderella Castle at Disney World, or channeling your inner Clark Griswold and taking the family on a cross-country trip to Walley World, summer vacations should be fun and enjoyable.

Even at home.

If you plan on spending your vacation at home this summer, consider sprucing up your yard with these Kansas City, Missouri landscapers who will transform your outdoor space into a stay-cation paradise.

Rosehill Gardens

Respect, commitment, and integrity.

That’s what Rosehill Gardens prides itself on. Wouldn’t expect anything less from a company that’s been in business for over 100 years. That’s right, 100! Evert Asjes began the business in 1914 by mowing grass, planting flower beds and offering maintenance services to the mansions in the area. It was these roots that provided for future growth.

The rest, well, is history.

Now over 100 years old, Rosehill Gardens – which sells 90 percent of what it grows – has continued to inspire Kansas City’s landscapes. The company has multiple divisions, including landscape design, maintenance, irrigation and lighting, as well as a full-service retail garden center and over 1,000 acres at Rosehill Farms.

Rosehill Gardens handles residential landscaping, such as outdoor kitchens, walkways, paths and patios, as well as commercial landscaping, including parks, community centers, and colleges and universities.

K.C. Lawn & Landscaping has had the privilege of working with over 2,500 Kansas City homeowners since 2007.

“Landscaping isn’t our line of work, it’s our passion,” says the company.

Services offered include landscape, hardscape (i.e. retaining walls, paver patios, outdoor rooms/kitchens, fireplaces, and more), decorative concrete, and interior environments (i.e. basement floors, garage floors, commercial floors, concrete countertops).

K.C. Lawn & Landscaping is not a jack-of-all-trades landscaping company, and it’s just fine with that. It doesn’t mow, do turf apps, maintenance, or small jobs. Rather than doing that, the company instead focuses on “doing a few things and doing them better than anyone else.”
