Easy, Affordable Lawn Care Services in Dekalb

Dekalb is known for its unpredictable weather, which can make it difficult to maintain a lush and healthy lawn. But don't worry –– LawnStarter is here to help. Our team of lawn care experts is equipped with the knowledge and tools to keep your property in tip-top shape, no matter the weather.

How LawnStarter Can Take Care of Your Lawn: Our pros will mow, trim, and edge your lawn, ensuring it’s well-maintained throughout the year. With LawnStarter, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy a beautiful lawn without lifting a finger.

Common Grass Types: Cool-season grasses, such as Kentucky bluegrass and fine fescue, are great choices for Dekalb lawns.

Best Time to Plant Grass: Planting grass in the fall allows it to establish roots before the hot and dry summer months.

Spring Lawn Care Tips: It's important to aerate your lawn to help improve soil health. This will also help the grassroots absorb more water and nutrients. Additionally, you should fertilize your lawn to give it a boost of nutrients and help it recover from winter damage.

Fall Lawn Care Tips: Prepare your lawn for winter by removing any fallen leaves and branches and overseeding bare spots to ensure a lush lawn in the spring.


Common Lawn Pests and Diseases: Grubs, chinch bugs, armyworms, brown patch, and powdery mildew can be treated with pesticides and regular mowing and watering.


Other Services We Offer: Aside from lawn care, LawnStarter offers other outdoor maintenance services, including power washing, gutter cleaning, and tree removal.
