Demetria B.'s lawn in Birmingham, AL

James arrived on the scheduled date was very polite and professional! I was home when he arrived and he asked for any restrictions and wanted to ensure my yard would be to my expectations when he left. His crew went right to work to get my yard in tip top shape. I left the house with a yard looking like a jungle and returned to the yard looking AMAZING!

Joel W.'s lawn in Birmingham, AL

The yard looks fantastic! If Gregory can do it every time, I'd be fine with that. Looks significantly better than the last guys.

Demetria B.'s lawn in Birmingham, AL

So my first experience with lawn starter was no so great. The service person that arrived was kind of sketchy so needless to say i didn't know what to expect this time. Robert arrived and got straight to work! The lines were crisp in my yard and everything blown to the side. Not to mention he was very polite when we had to leave and he greeted us. The yard looks AMAZING!! Thanks Robert for your professional and quick service!

Easy, Affordable Lawn Care Services in Birmingham

Birmingham's long, hot, and humid summers are great for grass growing but hard for homeowners. When you'd rather be at the pool instead of working in the yard, LawnStarter has you covered. We offer routine lawn care, fertilization, landscaping, bush trimming, and more. We'll keep your lawn looking great so you don't have to.

Best Grass Types for Birmingham: Because of the hot summers, warm-season grasses do well here. Bermudagrass, Bahia Grass, Centipedegrass, and Zoysiagrass are some of the most popular choices. But with Birmingham's cold, wet winters, some cool-season grasses, like tall fescue, will also do well here.

Winter Lawn Care Tips for Birmingham: Whether you have a warm- or cool-season grass, you'll have to prep your lawn for winter. All grass types go dormant in extreme temperatures, so before the frost and snow move in, take care of a few lawn care chores to ensure the grass survives and comes back strong in the spring. If you have a sprinkler system, be sure to blow it out and turn it off to avoid any frozen and bursting pipes. Continue to mow the grass as long as it's still growing, and then give it a final, short mow between late January and early February. This is also a good time to apply fertilizer to your grass to give it a boost of nutrients and help it bounce back quickly come springtime.

Summer Lawn Care Tips for Birmingham: Sometime between late May and early June, you'll need to ramp up your mowing frequency and start cutting the grass weekly. Make sure your mower's blades are sharp so they actually cut the grass and not tear it. You may be tempted to cut your grass extra short to buy time between cuts, but cutting more than one-third of your grass's height at a time can be damaging and stunt its growth. Water your grass about 1-2 inches of water per week, but be sure to adjust that according to any rainfall so you don't over-water your lawn. At the end of summer, your grass and soil are going to be compacted after all the traffic it's had the last few months, so this is when you want to aerate. Breaking up the soil allows the sun, air, and nutrients to reach deeper, and gives it a better chance of surviving the upcoming cold temperatures.

How LawnStarter Can Keep Your Lawn Looking Great: Not only do our pros take care of the routine maintenance, we also aerate, seed, install sod, and landscape. Need tree or bush trimming? We do that too.

Other Outdoor Services We Offer: LawnStarter's pros do more than just lawns. If you need your gutters cleaned or your driveway powerwashed, we'll handle it. We also install and repair fences and create hardscapes like patios, walkways, and fire pits.

No matter what your lawn or yard needs to look good, LawnStarter has a pro for you. We offer convenient scheduling through our easy-to-use app and offer customized quotes. Just click, call, or use the app to let us know how we can help.

"What is your number one tip for fall lawn care in Birmingham?"

During the Fall in Birmingham, it's important that you clear your lawn of leaves and other debris. Leaves can become wet and mat down during the winter and then block sunlight in the spring, providing opportunity for diseases to attack your lawn. You can either rake the leaves and add them to your compost or chop them up by making a couple of passes with your mulching mower.
