Easy, Affordable Lawn Care Services in Dayton

Between the long, humid summers and the cold, snowy winters, your grass doesn't know what to do! If you're unsure what your lawn needs too, let LawnStarter help. We have a network of lawncare professionals ready to remedy your lawn. We take care of all the routine maintenance as well as the extra stuff, like aeration, fertilization, landscaping, and weed control.

Best Grass Types for Dayton: Dayton falls in USDA Hardiness Zone 6, so cool-season grass will do best here, but warm-season grass will also survive. Kentucky bluegrass, tall fescue, fine fescue, and perennial ryegrass are cool-season grasses that will stay green when the temperature is between 60-75 degrees F. Buffalograss is a warm-season grass that will stay green throughout the summer when the temperature is between 75-90 degrees.

Spring Lawn Care Tips for Dayton: Once the heavy blanket of snow has melted, your grass will need some extra TLC to come back to life. It's been compacted under all the snow, so aerating is one of the best things you can do for it. Spring is also the time you want to fertilize and get rid of weeds. As the weather continues to warm, if you notice any thin or discolored spots, lay down seed to encourage grass growth.

Fall Lawn Care Tips for Dayton: The falling leaves are pretty and fun to jump in, but if you let them stay on your grass for too long, they can cause your lawn to die. It's important to periodically clear your lawn of all the leaves and debris in the fall to make sure the soil can get the air, sun, and nutrients it needs. Continue to water and mow the lawn until the first freeze, and apply fertilizer to give the roots a boost of nutrients before winter sets in.

Lawn Pests in Dayton: Billbugs, chinch bugs, and white grubs can destroy your lawn if they're not treated. They eat the grass roots and/or the blades and cause your lawn to become discolored and bare. If you spot any pests in your yard, get rid of them right away, and if you need help, LawnStarter is just a call or click away. We'll identify the bugs and create a treatment plan to get them cleared out.

How LawnStarter Can Take Care of Your Lawn: From routine lawn mowing and edging to full-property landscaping, LawnStarter's pros will keep your lawn looking great. We trim and shape bushes, prune trees, weed gardens, plant flowers, aerate, dethatch, and fertilize. Reclaim your free time and let us worry about your yard.

Other Outdoor Services We Offer: Our pros can also build a fence around your yard, lay a patio, and install a firepit. We also power wash houses and driveways and clean gutters. Whatever outdoor services you need, LawnStarter has a pro for you.

Call, click, or download our easy-to-use app for a quick, custom quote. We offer flexible scheduling, great rates, and all the outdoor services you need to keep your curb appeal high and your expenses low.
