Photo of Justin W.'s yard after getting lawn care in Gainesville, VA
Jim did a great job again this week! After getting home from a crazy day in the office, I don't have to worry about trimming the lawn (which could have been a hastse with all the rain from the last week). Now I have a decent amount of time to spend with the wife and kids! Having Jim take care of the mowing and trimming affords me the opportunity to enjoy more family time on weekdays. Thank you!

He has done an excellent job. Thanks so much! I read the quote for the shrubs and mulch. We are happy with the pricing but things have come up and we're probably looking to get it done next month. Thank you for your hard work.

His crew is always on time and the lawn looks great! I get weekly service done and it never looks to short and nothing is ever missed. I would recommend this crew to anyone who wants their yard/grass looking tidy at all times! They always put the trash cans back where they go too :)

LawnStarter's Mobile App

Easy, Affordable Lawn Care Services in Gainesville

Gainesville’s climate is known for its hot summers and cold winters, which can make it difficult to keep a lawn looking its best year-round. However, LawnStarter is here to help with all your lawn care needs.

How LawnStarter Can Take Care of Your Lawn: Our services include mowing, trimming, edging, fertilization, weed control, and more. We use the latest technology to provide a seamless customer experience, from booking services to payment and feedback.


Property Maintenance Code: Residents must ensure their grass and weeds do not exceed 12 inches in height. 

Common Grass Types: Tall fescue, Kentucky bluegrass, and perennial ryegrass are excellent choices for your Gainesville lawn.

Best Time to Plant Grass: Fall is the best time to plant grass here. The cooler temperatures and higher rainfall create ideal conditions for seed germination.

Spring Lawn Care Tips: During this season, it's essential to fertilize your lawn to promote growth and prevent weeds. It’s also a good idea to aerate and overseed to improve soil health.

Fall Lawn Care Tips: Remove leaves and debris from your lawn to prevent mold and disease and prepare it for the winter months.


Common Lawn Pests and Diseases: Grubs, armyworms, and brown patch can damage your lawn.


Other Services We Offer: LawnStarter also offers power washing, tree cutting, gutter installation, landscaping, and other outdoor maintenance services.


Don't let lawn care stress you out in Gainesville. Call LawnStarter or download our app to receive an instant quote for your lawn care needs.

The front yard looks great Robert- thanks for getting the whole front yard this time. It looks great. Please be sure to get the driveway area on King's street covered on your next visit- it is also part of this property. The part of the property behind the wooden fence is not necessary to mow- there wasn't a gate installed, and the property owner decided to xeriscape it anyways. Everything else needs to be mowed at each visit.
