Hire the Best Lawn Care Service in Athens

Whether you’re enjoying a weekend at Bear Hollow Zoo or taking in the charm of the historic district, a well-kept lawn is an essential part of the Athens experience.

LawnStarter offers affordable services for mowing, trimming, edging, and fertilizing, so your lawn dreams can become a reality without breaking the bank.

The short, cold winters seem like they last forever, and you still have to tend to your lawn care chores. With the hot Athens’ summers and the falls and winters yielding unpredictable highs and lows, it may be best to let our professionals keep up with your lawn care management.

Here's what you need to know about lawn care in the Classic City:

Best Grass Types for Athens 

Warm-season grasses grow best in this northeastern region of The Peach State. Popular varieties include:

  • Centipedegrass
  • St. Augustine
  • Zoysia
  • Bermudagrass

Pro tip: St. Augustinegrass is one of the best warm-season grass types for shady lawns.

How Often Should You Mow Your Lawn? Your mowing frequency depends on your grass type. Some varieties grow faster than others. Typically, we recommend mowing weekly in the spring, summer, and fall but reduce your frequency to bi-weekly mowing in the winter.

Common Lawn Pests and Diseases in Athens

Athens’ temperate climate makes growing grass fairly easy. Unfortunately, it also means lawn pests and diseases also thrive in Classic City.

Lawn Pests: Fall armyworms, Japanese beetle grubs, mole crickets, spittlebugs, fire ants, and southern chinch bugs are some of the pests that plague Athens lawns.

Lawn Diseases: Unfortunately, there are many lawn diseases in Clarke County that homeowners should look out for. These include brown patch, dollar spot, Pythium, take-all root rot, slime mold, nematodes, and gray leaf spot.

Other Outdoor Services We Offer 

Our lawn management pros can trim trees and shrubs, remove stumps, and pressure-wash driveways. LawnStarter’s landscapers can also extend your living space by building patios and decks complete with a fire pit or outdoor fireplace. And, don’t forget the walkways to lead your guests to your new outdoor space.

Whether you are located near the University of Georgia, Sandy Creek Park, Whitehall, or Winterville, LawnStarter is your one-stop shop for lawn care services. Reach out for a customized instant quote today.

From bush and tree trimming to landscape design and lawn treatments, LawnStarter has you covered so you can spend more time with your family.
