Rain Sun Rain Sun Rain Sun…shutterstock 99111170 72 resi

With all the rainy weather we are having this spring, you may feel like you can’t keep those weeds under control.   

No worries, we are here to help!  We have lots of options to help keep weeds away while the rain stays for a little longer; and keep your grass looking green even after the rain has stopped.

We suggest 3 things that can help you keep your yard looking splendid!

  1. Make sure you are fertilizing your lawn so it has all the proper nutrients. Where do you find someone to do that with your busy schedule?  Right here!   We have a 6 step program that you sign up for once and we take it from there.  It includes weed control!

  2. Have your sprinkler system turned on and ready to go, even if you think you may not need it right away.  It is best to have it started so when you do want to use it, it’s working and covering everything properly.  (Don’t worry, we do sprinkler activations too!)

  3. Rain sensors are a great help so you don’t have to worry about your lawn getting over watered during this rainy season.  Rain sensors will keep your system from running when it has had enough moisture from Mother Nature.

holiday lighting 8.2It is only November but you may have already missed out on new Holiday Lighting. We already have had to turn away new customers. We don’t want you to keep missing out on the charm of a well-lit home for the holidays!

‘The sooner the better’, ‘The early bird gets the worm’ or in this case a customized holiday light display for your home! 

Distributors tend to run out of products early and so by the time you are ready to think holiday lights, they are out of many of the things you were hoping for to make your holiday sparkle.

So even though you aren’t quite ready to think about the holidays when it’s still warm out, we recommend you set up your free consultation with us as early as August or September so that you can get all the things on your wish list. 

Mark your calendars early next year to have your home be the one to inspire holiday envy in your neighborhood!

Nebraska Medical Center Tree Planting for 1 Year Anniversary of Gwen's Liver Transplant 

NMC Tree Planting 1 small


Yesterday, September 24th, was a heartwarming day at the Nebraska Medical Center & for the Rohrig family.  It marked the 1 year anniversary of their daughter Gwen’s liver transplant at just 2 weeks old.  SunCo’s landscape maintenance team had the honor of being present to plant the tree to memorialize the anniversary.   A strong oak tree was intentionally chosen by Mandy, the mother, to grow big and strong just like Gwen!

Strong Hold Orphanage, Haiti

Every year we get a note from Jarrod, a former Employee of SunCo, who takes a week out of his busy life to go to Haiti for mission work. He asks that we help him support the Haitian people, and we ask him how we can best do that. This year his response was to donate toward the women of Haiti. There are very few orphanages for girls in Haiti and that is what his group was going down to help with this year. Haiti Girls2

They have now opened an orphanage which is housing 10 girls, and are planning to build a second orphanage in November. We appreciate all the work that Jarrod and the Strong Tower Orphanage does for Haiti and will continue to support him in any way possible.

Spring is here but there's still a bit of a chill in the air!

Spring is here, and that means we all want to run outside in our summer gear and bare feet.
One day that might be great, but not so much the next with the chill that comes and goes.
Nebraska spring can be unpredictable as we all know, but we have a great solution for you.
Want to be outside as much as possible but still stay warm? We can help with a new outdoor space! Our friendly landscape team creates custom paver patios with fire features, for those nights when you're just not ready to go inside but need to stay warm. We want your outdoor space to be just as beautiful and cozy as your indoor space - let's create outdoor envy in your space!

Happy Arbor Day from SunCo!

Arbor Day is near and dear to the people of Nebraska, as we are the Arbor State. 


Here are some helpful tips from Mike at SunCo on planting a tree:

  • When planting a tree, you will want to start by overdigging your hole by about 6" in all directions to ensure that the soil is loose and its roots can grow. 
  • For Evergreen trees, the base of the trunk should be placed 3-5" above the original soil surface.
  • For Deciduous trees, the base should be planted with the trunk 1-2" above the original soil surface.
  • You can add root stimulator to the soil, though it's not required.
  • Be sure to water, water, water!
