Stress-Free Lawn Care in Des Plaines

Before the arrival of the Europeans, the Ottawa, Potawatomi, and Chippewa tribes made their homes in this river valley. When the French arrived in the 1600s, they named the river La Rivière des Plaines or the River of the Plane Tree." The first European settlers arrived in the 1830s after the Treaty of Chicago was signed.

The city grew rapidly after World War II and the opening of Chicago-O'Hare International Airport. In 1955, the first McDonald’s franchise opened here, and in 2008, the Illinois Gaming Board awarded the state's last casino license to Midwest Gaming and Entertainment. The 140,000 square-foot Rivers Casino opened in 2010 with six restaurants. It now hosts dance parties at the Lotus night club.

Lake Opeka is the place to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. You can rent a paddleboat, fish, or play golf here. On a sunny day, it’s a good place to walk a mile or so and watch the water lap against the shore. The park also offers movies in the pavilion during the summer and carnivals in the fall.

The Harry Semrow Driving Range at Golf Road and Rand features 70 stalls for practicing your golf swings as well as a small miniature golf course. There’s plenty of parking and the prices are reasonable.

Mystic Waters on Miner Street is an excellent place to cool off. The water park has plenty of lawn space for a picnic, as well as lawn chairs on the pool’s deck. There’s a giant public pool, water slides, a kiddie pool. It’s a great place to take the kids for the day.

Take in a live show at the Big Noise Theater on Thacker Street. You'll see performers from Des Plaines showcasing their talent as well as a wide variety of professional plays and musicals. There are also many excellent restaurants in the neighborhood, so make a big night of it! Enjoy dinner before the show at any one of nearly 100 restaurants featuring everything from traditional American fare to Polish, Greek, Asian, Mexican and Middle Eastern food.

The Chicago area can be hectic, and you deserve to relax around Des Plaines on the weekends. There’s plenty to do here instead of mowing the lawn and pruning the hedges. Why not leave your lawn maintenance chores to the professionals, while you enjoy life. That’s why you need LawnStarter, the best lawn care service in the Chicago metro area. They also have a free mobile app for both Android and iOS to make your lawn maintenance even easier. Just put in your ZIP code, decide on your schedule, and choose the lawn care services you need. They can do everything from lawn mowing to trimming your trees. Click confirm, and they’ll be there to make your lawn and garden gorgeous.

Don’t waste any more of your time laboring over your lawn. Contact LawnStarter, and make your life easy.
