FAQ About Lawn Maintenance in Ellicott City

What's the best way to maintain your lawn?

In the Ellicott City area, maintaining a lush, green lawn involves a number of things, from consistent mowing, to weeding, watering, fertilization aeration and more. The average lawn size here in Ellicott City is 8,966 square feet, which typically takes 81 minutes to mow if you do it yourself.

Additionally, you'll want to fertilize your lawn 6 times per year, with each application tailored to that time of year. It's also a good idea to get a soil test done once every 2-4 years to ensure your soil isn't lacking key nutrients. Professional fertilization in Ellicott City averages about $68 per application, and includes spot weed treatment.

Aeration is a process that relieves compaction, helps grass establish roots, and allows air and nutrients to reach the soil. Ideally, you should aerate once per year, every three years at the very minimum. Despite it's importance, only 8 percent of Ellicott City homeowners get aeration. Aeration in Ellicott City costs $100 on average, but depends on lawn size, and should be done in spring or fall.

Finally, watering is critical. You'll generally want to water in the morning before 7:26 am or in the evening after 5:04 pm so the water does not evaporate. Ellicott City does not have watering restrictions.


How much does it cost to have your lawn mowed in Ellicott City?

While the average cost of grass cutting in Ellicott City is $43.55, the price depends primarily on lawn size and mowing frequency.

Here is the average price in Ellicott City by lawn size:

  • 1/8 Acre: $34.6
  • 1/4 Acre: $36.5
  • 1/3 Acre: $40.5
  • 1/2 Acre: $51.3

Here is the average mowing price by frequency:

  • Weekly: $35.28
  • Biweekly: $48.78
  • Monthly: $53.57

Two other factors that can increase price are corner lots and gates. In Ellicott City, 62% of homes are on a corner lot, and 30% of homes have backyard gates.


Can I get fined for not cutting my lawn?

First, you'll have to check your Homeowners Association rules. In Ellicott City, 52% of homeowners are part of a HOA, and most HOAs have restrictions on grass and overgrown bushes.

Unfortunately we were not able to greet/ meet Joseph when he arrived to cut our grass. I can say that when we first saw our freshly cut lawn we were pleased that it no longer looked "wild". He mowed and edged the lawn as we had requested and are very pleased. We will definately continue to use LawnStarter throughout the spring and summer!

None of the lawn around the back of the property has ever been edged however I have not mentioned it previously. This is the area opposite the koi pond and around the garage. It may not be easy to edge because there are plants in the area and this may be excluded because it's considered part of the flower beds and not the lawn. Other than that the work has been great.
