Jessica C.'s lawn in Durham, NC

Arthur is a king crafter of a fine lawn. He is determined and came during the rain when other groups passed on and made sure I was taken care of. I plan on having him help me with more lawn care and landscaping.

Lawn tip of the week

Clay soils typically hold water better and are usually highly fertile, whereas sandy soil is free-draining and is great for preventing plants from being waterlogged in the winter.

And in case basketball isn't your thing, you can check out the Sarah P Duke gardens, which helped Duke rank as LawnStarter's best landscaped college on the east coast.

Once upon a time, I used to work a regular job. I only managed to stay with the pair of companies whom I was employed by for a few months before branching off, founding my own lawn care service provision business, and doing so well that I'm able to let my wife by an at-home, take-care-of-the-kids homecarer.

Questions and Answers


Are there watering restrictions in Durham, NC?

Odd-Even Watering Schedule The City of Durham has adopted requirements to help make our community a more sustainable place to live. These watering requirements are consistent with irrigation schedules in most of our neighboring communities. Landscape irrigation makes up a large portion of our consumption, particularly during the warmer months of the year. In fact, irrigation during summer months can increase demand on the treatment plants between 20% - 40%. By improving the efficiency of our irrigation practices, we can reduce consumption, save money, and preserve this precious resource. Schedule The mandatory outdoor irrigation schedule applies to all spray irrigation systems and allows customers to irrigate according to the following schedule: Odd-numbered addresses may water once on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays either before 10 a.m. or after 6 p.m. Even-numbered addresses may water once on Sundays, Wednesdays, and Fridays either before 10 a.m. or after 6 p.m. No watering may occur between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. on allowed watering days. No customers are permitted to water on Mondays.



Does Durham, NC have long / overgrown grass ordinances?

“Weeds and undergrowth over 12 inches tall provide a harborage for rodents, vermin, mosquitoes and other pests,” she said. “This increases the hazards of disease, injury or fire as well as creates hazards to the health, safety and welfare of your yard and your neighborhood.”
