Easy, Affordable Lawn Care Services in Durham

Durham is home to Duke University, one of the most prestigious universities in the world. In fact, we ranked Sarah P Duke gardens as one of the best-landscaped colleges on the east coast. Durham also offers great nightlife, wonderful beer, and southern cuisine.


One thing’s for sure: you shouldn’t worry about your lawn when there’s so much to enjoy. LawnStarter's pros will treat your lawn to keep it green and healthy. Need landscaping or lawn aeration done? We do that too.


Common Grass Types in Durham: The top five most common grass types in Durham are Bermudagrass, tall fescue, perennial ryegrass, Zoysiagrass, and Kentucky bluegrass.


Spring Lawn Care Tips for Durham: Tune up your lawnmowers, leaf blowers, and hedge trimmers. Clean your yard of debris, including branches, twigs, pet waste, and leaves. Make sure your soil is healthy by aerating it, removing weeds, and carefully fertilizing it.


Fall Lawn Care Tips for Durham: Don’t fertilize, as grass should only be fertilized when it's actively growing, and the grass goes dormant before the winter season. For the same reason, don’t water your lawn. Some weeds, like Florida betony and wild onion, grow in the winter, so be sure to check your garden for weeds.


Common Lawn Pests: Grubs, sod webworms, cutworms, ants, ticks, aphids, mole crickets, spittlebugs, and chinch bugs are the pests you need to watch out for in your Durham lawn.


Common Lawn Diseases: Dollar spot, brown patch, large patch, and fairy ring cause discoloration in your lawn. If you notice any areas of your lawn that are turning brown or yellow, treat them right away. And if you need a hand, our pros will identify and treat the lawn disease for you.


How LawnStarter Can Take Care of Your Lawn: In addition to landscaping, lawn aeration, and mowing, we offer cleanups, fertilization, mulching, pool cleaning, and patio work.


Durham is one of the nation’s fastest-growing college towns with lots to do. So go out and enjoy what Durham has to offer. Don’t worry about the lawn; just call, click, or download our app, and we’ll take it from there.

Questions and Answers

Local Regulations
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.
Local Regulations
Does Durham, NC have long / overgrown grass ordinances?
β€œWeeds and undergrowth over 12 inches tall provide a harborage for rodents, vermin, mosquitoes and other pests,” she said. β€œThis 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.”
