Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities

The landscape crew from Wallace Commercial Landscape has started their mowing schedule.

Residents are asked to remove personal belongings from the grassy areas on their scheduled mow day. In the event of inclement weather, mowing may be delayed one day.

Residents with fenced backyards must mow and otherwise maintain the yard inside the fence.

Part of the landscaping service includes work to maintain flower beds in front of homes as well as mowing. Residents who prefer to plant their own garden bed and/or maintain their own lawn should place a reflective stake in the garden bed or yard to tell Wallace which garden beds or yards they should skip. Residents can bag yard clippings and debris for Wallace to pick up curbside on designated mow days.

The Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities Self Help Store, 800 W. Warehouse Road, is currently closed to public walk-in service, but is still open for telephone orders with assigned pick-up days. Reflective stakes can be purchased for $5 per pair during normal business hours 913-651-3838. The stakes can be returned before or upon move out for a refund of the purchase price. If the stakes are damaged, they can be exchanged at the Self Help Store.
