Easy, Affordable Lawn Care in Carbondale

Looking out from the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail or listening to the Southern Illinois Symphony Orchestra is a delightful treat for your senses. Returning home to do lawn care? That probably doesn’t feed your soul. 

That’s OK. Lawn care is what LawnStarter pros are passionate about. We mow, trim, edge, fertilize, and more to give your lawn what it needs to perform optimally in all four seasons.

Here’s what lawn care is like in the Eclipse Crossroads of America:

About Your Grass

Carbondale lies in the transition zone, which means you can grow either cool-season or warm-season grasses. Cool-season grasses will survive the winter freezes and snowfall, but will turn brown in the summer heat. Warm-season grasses love the summer, but don’t expect them to stay green when things get chilly. Here are the most popular grasses for Southern Illinois:

  • Zoysiagrass: This low-maintenance, warm-season grass is perfect for high-traffic lawns. Mow it between 1 and 2 inches, and address any thatch accumulation.
  • Perennial ryegrass: This cool-season turf is excellent for establishing or repairing a lawn quickly. Mow it between 1.5 and 2.5 inches, and watch out for lawn diseases.
  • Kentucky bluegrass: This cool-season grass survives Carbondale’s cold winters. However, it requires frequent fertilization and mowing between 2.5 and 3.5 inches.

How often should you mow your lawn? Your Southern Illinois lawn care routine needs to adapt with the seasons and grass type. Mow cool-season grasses weekly in the spring and the fall, but hold off if they turn brown and go dormant in the summer heat. Warm-season Zoysiagrass requires weekly mowing from late spring through summer and possibly early fall.

Other Services We Offer

Our pros don’t just mow and fertilize. Here are some other ways we can make your yard shine:

  • Aeration: This service is perfect for reviving high-traffic lawns with compacted soil. After aeration, your lawn can absorb water, nutrients, and air more effectively, which promotes healthier growth.
  • Landscaping: Complement your lawn with a custom landscape design. We recommend incorporating some native flowers to add a pop of color.
  • Tree and shrub maintenance: Our pros provide routine trimming, pruning, and disease control services to keep your trees and bushes neat and attractive.  

Don’t spend your weekends on lawn care and landscaping. LawnStarter pros will do the dirty work while you cheer on the Salukis or unwind at Evergreen Park. We serve Reeds Station, Boskydell, and every other corner of Carbondale. Call, click, or download the LawnStarter app today for personalized quotes.
