The unbeatable heat of summer makes yard work a task few want to take on. As the weather cools down, taking care of your outdoor spaces can start becoming a creative, rewarding experience rather than a grueling chore. Many Omaha businesses are getting geared up to transform your outdoor areas into spaces that you can see yourself spending time in. Whether it is adding an outdoor fireplace or getting a jumpstart on your garden, the possibilities for this new season are endless!

Nothing Runs Like a Deere!

 The very heart of a live landscape is the establishment of a healthy lawn. No matter how much you invest in fancy plants and trees, they always look their best when they are adjacent to green, lush grounds. Regardless of the size of your yard or your landscaping project, AKRS Equipment can provide an extensive array of John Deere equipment you need to get the job done right. AKRS offers John Deere turf, compact utility tractors, and compact construction equipment, plus a host of attachments to accomplish any yard or acreage project.

When it comes to choosing a mower or keeping up with lawn maintenance, AKRS is in your corner. The John Deere equipment they sell offers the lowest cost of ownership in the industry, and their mowers have, over the years, proven to operate longer with fewer repairs and maintain their value better than any other product on the market. AKRS even has a service available to keep your equipment in top working order.

“AKRS Equipment offers a Ready to Mow Service in the Omaha and Lincoln communities, where we will come to your home or business and perform routine maintenance on-site and ensure that your equipment always performs well,” said Turf and Commercial Equipment Sales Professional Nick Wessel. “For larger repairs, we offer pickup and delivery to one of our AKRS locations.”

For commercial mowing, one of the hottest trends in mowers is the John Deere QuikTrak Stand-on Mower, which AKRS offers. These stand-behind mowers serve up advanced   maneuverability and speed to allow you to mow more and feel less fatigued at the end of the day. On the residential side, the John Deere line of Lawn Tractors provides mowing with a variety of attachments to make landscaping chores simple and easy.

“Customers can stop in at their convenience and learn what equipment best fits their needs,” Nick said. “The earlier they pay us a visit, the sooner we can get them up and running with the guidance and equipment they need to maintain the best lawn in the neighborhood. Come see us and take a test drive on any John Deere product. After all, Nothing Runs Like a Deere!”

Pool Prep

It may still be warm, but before long, temperatures will steadily decrease and pool season will come to an end. Before that happens, make sure your pool is ready to close for winter by contacting Strawberry Springs Pool and Spa to help you ensure that your pool is properly maintained and protected for the winter.

Their winter pool closing service includes a thorough vacuuming and removal of debris, water balancing, draining water to an appropriate level, winterizing the plumbing system and equipment, using environmentally safe anti-freeze, installation and inspection of the winter cover, and more.

In six months when you’re ready to take the winter cover off, be sure to contact Strawberry Springs to help you open your pool and prepare for the spring. They also offer other services, including weekly maintenance, weekly chemical maintenance, jetted bathtub repair, hot tub moving, in-ground pool construction, and more, so that you can be a happy swimmer all year long!
