Easy, Affordable Lawn Care Services in Chapel Hill

Chapel Hill’s warm and humid climate, coupled with its clay soil, can present some unique challenges when it comes to lawn care. However, with the help of LawnStarter, you can keep your lawn looking green and healthy all year round.

How LawnStarter Can Take Care of Your Lawn: Our local Chapel Hill pros can handle all of your lawn care needs, from mowing and fertilizing to aeration and overseeding. We use only the best equipment and products to ensure that your lawn receives the care it needs to thrive.

Common Grass Types: Bermudagrass, tall fescue, centipedegrass, buffalograss, Zoysiagrass, perennial ryegrass, and Kentucky bluegrass. 

Best Time to Plant Grass: It’s best to plant grass during the spring or fall because of these seasons' ideal temperatures.

Spring Lawn Care Tips: As the weather warms up in spring, start mowing your lawn regularly, fertilize it, and control any weeds that may have emerged.

Fall Lawn Care Tips: Continue mowing your lawn regularly, but at a slightly higher setting. You should also aerate and overseed your lawn to improve its density and health.


Common Lawn Pests: Chinch bugs, mole crickets, and grubs are just some of the common lawn pests you should look out for here. 


Other Outdoor Services LawnStarter Offers: In addition to lawn care, we also offer a variety of other services including sprinkler installation, tree trimming, power washing, and more.
