Easy, Affordable Lawn Care Services in Ankeny

Ankeny has hot, humid summers and cold, snowy winters. If you’re struggling with taking care of your lawn in such a climate, or if you don’t want to, call LawnStarter and hire one of our pros, and we’ll take over.


Most Common Grass Types: The most common grass types are Kentucky bluegrass, fine fescue, perennial ryegrass, tall fescue, bentgrass, and rough bluegrass.


Summer Lawn Care Tips: Cut only a third of the grass blade when you mow the lawn. Give your lawn about an inch of water per week (less if it's rainy). Avoid seeding, fertilization, and weed control. Leave your grass clippings on the lawn to give your soil an extra boost of nutrients.


Vegetable Growing Tips: Grow cold-season vegetables early. Consider growing warm-weather vegetables inside. Use mulch and black plastic to warm the soil. Grow nutrient-dense vegetables, avoid planting after July, and add frost protection.


Common Lawn Diseases: Leaf spot, red thread, pink patch, anthracnose, brown patch, fairy ring, summer patch, snow mold, rust, and dollar spot.


Common Lawn Pests: White grubs, billbugs, armyworms, cutworms, chinch bugs, aphids, and ants.


Other Outdoor Services We Offer: In addition to lawn care, LawnStarter’s pros offer services ranging from patio work to lawn seeding. Name it, we do it.


Call us, click, or download our easy-to-use app to get started. We’ll send you a quote and hook you up with Ankeny’s best lawn care pros.
