Better Lawn Care in El Cajon

El Cajon is more than just a “box” outside of San Diego. We enjoy all the perks of living near a big city along with the benefits of being a smaller community.

Sure, the beach is less than half an hour away, but people come here to enjoy all the attractions our beautiful valley has to offer. The Water Conservation Garden on Cuyamaca College Drive is a great place to learn above California’s native plants and flowers and to take part in the butterfly release. Then tour guides will share their secrets about creating the perfect vegetable and rain gardens. Summers Past Farms has everything you need to start your herbal garden. Shop and stop to enjoy a quiet lunch when you’re through.

Heritage of the Americas Museum is a must-see for visitors. It’s an enormous collection of archaeology, anthropology, and art. The Native American artifacts and photos of are truly amazing.

Stop by Air Group One to learn everything about the U.S. Air Force. You can also take a trip on a WWII Warbird. The Bay Tour takes you over the San Diego Coastline for breath-taking views. The San Diego Aerospace Museum Restoration Facility on Kenney Street has a collection of vintage planes and jets. Watch while they restore these planes and then see them take off and land.

In the mood for gaming? Sycuan Casino has plenty of slots and card games but the locals come here for the sports bar and beer cheese. If you’re looking for cheeses, fresh baked good or produce, Sprouts Farmers Market on North 2nd Street is the place to shop. Sit on the patio and enjoy some coffee and a sushi roll.

If you live in El Cajon, you already know it's impossible to see and do everything here in just a few hours or days. You're lucky enough to live in one of the most beautiful cities in the country, but you might not have time to appreciate it if you're always busy with lawn care chores. Sure, you want a yard you can be proud of, but you also want the time to enjoy it!

That’s where LawnStarter comes in. We can help make light work of your weekend chores by taking on your landscaping tasks. From tree trimming to lawn mowing, we can tackle it all.
