Easy, Affordable Lawn Care Services in Columbia

Columbia's long hot summers and mild winters make it fairly easy to keep a great-looking lawn all year. But it's not always easy and does require time and commitment. If you're looking for help, tips, or a partner in lawn care, LawnStarter's pros are at your service. We offer routine lawn maintenance, landscaping, weed control, and more.

Spring Lawn Care Tips: Before the heat of summer sets in, there are a few important tasks you need to do to ensure your grass thrives all season. In the spring, the grass isn't growing very fast yet, so start mowing, but only once every week or two. Make sure your mower's blades are sharp; otherwise, you could be tearing the grass, not cutting it, and that is damaging to the lawn. Start watering your lawn, but not too much. Watering infrequently but deeply is best. The water should be able to reach about 6 inches deep into the soil. When you do that, check your soil and don't water again until the top 2 inches are dry. Late spring is also a great time to dethatch, aerate, and fertilize.

Best Grass Types for Columbia: While cool-season grasses can survive in Columbia, warm-season grass tends to do much better. Choose bermudagrass, Zoysiagrass, centipedegrass, or tall fescue to have a thick, healthy, green lawn most of the year.

Common Lawn Pests: Sod webworms, chinch bugs, and white grubs are all dangers to your lawn's health and good looks. Given enough time, they'll destroy your grass. If you notice discolored areas of your lawn, call a lawn care pro. LawnStarter knows how to identify and treat all lawn pests and keep your lawn strong.

How LawnStarter Can Take Care of Your Lawn: We provide routine lawn care, including mowing, edging, and blowing away debris. We also offer dethatching, aeration, fertilization, over-seeding, and weed control services.

Other Outdoor Services We Offer: Looking for more than lawn care? Our pros also power wash, install hardscaping like fire pits, walkways, and water features, clean gutters, and build fences.

For all your lawn and outdoor service needs, LawnStarter is here for you. Our pros will take care of your to-do list and give you back your free time. We offer instant, customized quotes for anything outdoor-related. Just call, click, or download our app to get started.
