Chicago’s finest lawn care tech company

On the shores of Lake Michigan, Chicago, IL is one of the largest cities in the United States, as well as one of the finest places to live. This city is filled with stunning architecture, dazzling exhibits, and multiple museums. Make time for everything Chicago has to offer this weekend.

The city’s skyline is punctuated by multiple must-visit skyscrapers, including the John Hancock Center and the Willis Tower. For another historic, artistic perspective on the city, make sure you visit the Art Institute of Chicago and the neo-Gothic Tribune Tower.

Chicago is also a great place for naturalists to explore. The city is home to the Field Museum, one of the country’s premier natural history museums. Millenium Park is a great place to toss a Frisbee with the dog or take a relaxing walk. This park is also home to the impressive Cloud Gate sculpture. The Gold Coast district is another great spot for hiking, biking, and enjoying the lakeside scenery.

Sports fans will have to put a visit to Wrigley Field, home of the Cubs, on their lists of must-see attractions. For shop-a-holics, North Michigan Avenue, featuring the Magnificent Mile, may be a better spot to visit.

Chicago may be known as the windy city, and your lawn care should be a breeze, too. However you choose to spend your weekend hours, you should spend most of them enjoying this tremendous city. You work hard, and deserve to play hard, too.

Questions and Answers


Are there watering restrictions in Chicago, IL?

Despite restrictions across Chicago area, water use is taxing suburban systems



Does Chicago, IL have long / overgrown grass ordinances?

Any person who owns or controls property within the city must cut or otherwise control all weeds on such property so that the average height of such weeds does not exceed ten inches. Any person who violates this subsection shall be subject to a fine of not less than $600 nor more than $1,200. Each day that such violation continues shall be considered a separate offense to which a separate fine shall apply



"What's your number one tip for improving the quality of your grass?"

Applying water too rapidly causes runoff, as grass can absorb only so much water at a time. When runoff happens, soil, fertilizers and pesticides can wind up in nearby waterways. Also, over-irrigation can push nutrients deep into the soil and away from plant roots. Watering deeply and infrequently – about twice a week and 4 to 6 inches deep can help prevent under-watering or overwatering.
