There was a mix up with the address and he mowed the lawn down the street from me. When the mix up was found he was at my place within 15 minutes and had everything done super fast. Amazing work! Amazing customer service!

Independence lawn care

Independence, Missouri, was the site of two critical battles in the Civil War. Today, however, it's a much more peaceful place. But if you feel like you're losing a battle against your yard, then it's time to make a change. At Lawn Love, we have the knowledge and expertise required to help you properly manage and maintain your property. From choosing the right grass and plants to mowing, we can help you make peace with your yard in no time.


What Grows in Independence?


As with any place, the weather patterns, seasons, and climate of Independence play an influential role in determining what grows best. If you're looking to fortify your yard, consider these grasses that are native to Missouri:


  • Bermuda
  • Zoysia
  • Fescue
  • Kentucky Bluegrass


Grasses in Missouri are divided into two categories: warm season and cool season. Bermuda grass is classified as a warm season grass. Warm season grasses grow primarily in the spring and summer. They are more tolerant of heat, direct sunlight, and minimal water than other types of grasses. Bermuda produces a lush blanket on your property. It is a green, healthy, and vibrant grass. Because of its aesthetic appeal, it's a top choice for parks, golf courses, athletic fields, and public areas.


Zoysia is also a warm season grass. It is dark green and forms a lush, healthy blanket on your lawn. Zoysia features fine, elegant blades that are quite durable, despite their physical characteristics. Another advantage of Zoysia is that it can prevent weeds from growing by forming a dense ground cover.


Fescue is a cool season grass. It does best with partial shade and needs adequate water for optimal health. Fescue should be mowed when it reaches a height of two-three inches. Left unattended, Fescue can reach a mature height of up to three feet. Since Fescue's growth slows in the summertime, you can apply a round of fertilizer in the fall and late spring to give it a jump start.


Kentucky bluegrass is also a cool season grass. Like Fescue, it grows primarily during the fall and early spring. Even in winter, it retains some of its delightful blue-green color. It can survive drops in temperatures and grows well in shaded areas. Kentucky bluegrass thrives in Missouri, but its adaptability makes it a hardy and popular grass in other parts of the US, too.


Along with grasses, you can add some attractive native plants to your Missouri property as well.


  • Missouri Primrose
  • Black-eyed Susan
  • Butterfly Milkweed
  • Prairie Blazing Star


According to the Missouri Conservation Department, Missouri primrose reaches a full height of two feet. Its flowers may close during the day, but they open at night to attract pollinators.


Black-eyed Susan flowers from June through October. It reaches a mature height of 12-24 inches. It thrives in rocky areas and tolerates full sun. It is best known for its yellow flowers with a prominent black center.


Butterfly milkweed, as the name suggests, is a favorite among butterflies. The title includes several species, including 15 native to the area. Butterfly milkweed grows on well-drained soil and can withstand drought.


Prairie blazing star reaches a full height of 3-4 feet. It produces tall, picturesque purple flowerheads. When mature, the plants can produce up to 10 stems or more. This is an adaptable, attractive species commonly used in landscaping.


Attractions in Independence


Once you've made peace with your yard, it's time to get out and enjoy the great sites Independence offers.


Uptown Farmers Market


Starting in May, local farmers and residents convene uptown twice a week for the farmers market. Each week you'll find a selection of fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables. Artisan bakers and local vendors are on hand to supply freshly baked goods and homemade products.
