Better lawn care for the Motor City

As the largest city in Michigan, Detroit offers hundreds of things to do, see, and explore. While the city is most well-known for its ties to the automotive manufacturing industry, Detroit, or “Motor City,” as it’s affectionately known, offers so much more to residents and visitors alike.

Sports fans can enjoy a game at Comerica Park, home of the Tigers. Outdoor enthusiasts will appreciate William G. Milliken State Park and Harbor, where a waterfront park showcases a scenic lighthouse, riverwalk, trails, and picnic areas.

Detroit is also a great place to explore if you have children. The city is home to Belle Isle Aquarium, a relic dating back to 1904 that features an extensive collection of marine life, but the aquarium is most notable for its large population of gar fish. The Michigan Science Center is a dynamic experience for children as well, offering interactive exhibits and even a planetarium.

The city also features many historic attractions, such as the Michigan Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument. This statue pays tribute to Civil War heroes and is located in downtown Detroit. Fort Wayne is another must-see stop, offering tours of the 19th century post as well as reenactments and community events.

Once you’ve worked up an appetite, be sure to visit one of the city’s dozens of breweries. There are multiple spots to grab a brew and a bite, with Atwater Brewery and Tap House and Jolly Pumpkin Pizzeria and Brewery being two of the city’s most popular with locals and tourists alike.

There’s so much to do in Detroit, so wherever your interests and passions take you, be sure to dedicate plenty of time to enjoying them. With everything there is to see and do, why spend time doing chores, such as mowing your lawn? Instead, entrust your lawn care needs to the professionals by contacting LawnStarter.

We are the premier lawn care service in the Detroit area, and will work with you to make all of your landscaping dreams a reality. Don’t hesitate another moment. Install the LawnStarter mobile app or log on to our desktop website and schedule services with the click of a button. All you need to do is give us your zip code, and from there we can provide you with a customized list of services, prices, and potential start dates.

Once you confirm, we will be on our way over to mow your lawn, take care of your flowers, or even trim your trees. We consider any and all special requests. No job is too big, or too small, for our skilled technicians to handle.

So why wait? Contact LawnStarter today, and get back to enjoying everything Detroit has to offer.

Questions and Answers


Are there watering restrictions in Detroit, MI?

Residents are asked to voluntary limit outdoor water use to odd / even days, based on the last number in their addresses: --Homeowners with addresses ending in odd numbers, 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9, should water lawns, fill swimming pools, or wash cars only on odd numbered calendar dates. --Residents with even number addresses, 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8, are asked to follow the same procedure using even numbered dates.



Does Detroit, MI have long / overgrown grass ordinances?

The two problems are more often found hand-in-hand, forcing cities from Grosse Pointe Woods to Warren to pass new ordinances or beef up mowing budgets to quell the abundant noxious grass complaints from residents. The issue is also sprouting up in Howell, which has a liberal grass height of 13 inches before it's in violation

Looks good. Just need to check the area above the pond. There is a walkway up there that does need mowing. It's done moss with grass combo. I do want to keep the moss as it is very shady up there but the sparse grass up there does need cutting. Many thanks!
