Easy, Affordable Lawn Care Services in Detroit

Mild, rainy summers and cold, snowy winters make it difficult to keep your Detroit lawn healthy all year. If you need a hand with your lawn care, LawnStarter's pros have everything you need. We'll take care of all your routine lawn maintenance, and we also fertilize, aerate, landscape, and get rid of weeds.

Most Common Grass Types in Detroit: Cool-season grasses like Kentucky bluegrass, perennial ryegrass, fine fescue, and tall fescue are great options. They have varying levels of sun, water, and soil needs, so be sure to properly assess your property before selecting your grass type.

Best Time to Plant Grass: Late summer, between the middle of August and the end of September is the best time to plant cool-season grass in Detroit.

Spring Lawn Care Tips for Detroit: Once the snow is melted and ground is thawed out, it's important to rake your lawn to loosen up any dead leaf debris and get rid of snow mold. Tune up and sharpen your mower. The grass is fragile coming out of the cold, and if you mow with dull blades, you risk damaging your grass. Reseed, apply an insecticide, and fertilize your lawn.

Summer Lawn Care Tips for Detroit: Don't let your lawn get dehydrated. Water your grass lightly and frequently; it needs one-and-a-half inches of water per week. Apply a post-emergent, weed control on a day that isn't too hot and there won't be any rain. Mow your grass weekly at a height of about three inches, and leave the clippings on the grass. They return nutrients and nitrogen back to the grass.

Fall Lawn Care Tips in Detroit: As cooler temperatures move in, you need to prepare your lawn so it survives the winter. Reseed any bare spots that are larger than a soccer ball. Continue mowing as long as the grass is growing. If it's warm and there's still rainfall, you should still be mowing. Fertilizing in September or October is smart. It encourages deeper root growth, which is what you want as you enter winter because they'll withstand drought conditions and store nutrients. Compacted soil is very common after playing outside on the lawn all summer. To fix this, aerate your lawn to to improve oxygen and water movement.

Other Outdoor Services LawnStarter Offers: Looking for more than lawn care? Our pros also offer gutter cleaning, fence installation, powerwashing, and hardscaping.

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
