The Best Lawn Care in Hempstead

Does it get any better than Hempstead? We’re a short drive from both the Long Island Sound and the Atlantic Ocean, the theaters and museums of the city are just west of us, and if you don’t mind a slightly longer drive, the vineyards and beaches of the Hamptons are an hour east.

Can’t seem to fit those things into your schedule? Maybe you’re spending too much time on chores like yard work. Don’t. Let LawnStarter handle the dirty work so you can have the lawn you want and also get back your time for more interesting pursuits.

We know lawn care, and here are some of the things you should know to get started:

The Best Grass Types for Hempstead

  • Perennial Ryegrass: This is a fast-growing grass that creates a thick, deep green turf. It's often mixed with other grasses for its ability to improve lawn durability.
  • Kentucky Bluegrass: It thrives in fertile soils, requires only moderate watering, and has a rich green color and fine texture.
  • Tall Fescue: This is an excellent, drought-resistant alternative to Kentucky bluegrass.
  • Fine Fescue: Fine fescue has a fine texture, is low-maintenance, drought-resistant, and thrives in poor soil.

Pro Lawn Mowing Advice: Here in Hempstead, you’ll have to mow during three seasons but you can take the winter off while the grass goes dormant. Cut no more than a third of the grass blade at a time, and be sure to use a sharp mower blade to avoid tearing the grass.

Pests and Lawn Diseases in Hempstead

A good cut, a little water and occasional fertilizer are enough to keep a lawn looking great, right? Wrong. They are important, of course, but you must also have a strategy for pest and disease control. Here are some of the main pests and diseases to watch for:

  • Snow Mold: When the snow melts, you might find this fungal disease making itself at home on your lawn.
  • Chinch Bugs: These tiny insects cause yellowing and wilting. 
  • Grubs: They resemble tiny worms and feed on grass roots, causing brown, patchy lawns. Worse, animals like skunks and racoons dig up your yard to get at them.
  • Brown Patch: This fungus thrives in humid conditions, leaving large, discolored patches.
  • Dollar Spot: Dollar spot thrives in wet conditions and forms brown or yellow, coin-sized spots. 

Other Services We Offer

Yes, our pros mow, edge, and handle other regular lawn maintenance chores. But we offer other services designed to keep your grass and entire yard in tip-top shape.

  • Aeration: This is important for making sure water and nutrients penetrate the soil and reach the roots efficiently. 
  • Weed Control: Weeds crowd out grass. We stop them in their tracks with the industry’s most effective weed control solutions.
  • Fertilization: Fertilizer provides the nutrients your grass is missing. Just remember that New York State law prohibits fertilizing between Dec. 1 and April 1. 
  • Custom Landscaping: A lush lawn is great, but it becomes greater with the right landscaping touches. Our pros have talent and knowledge to put the finishing touches on your yard.

LawnStarter is a full-service lawn care provider with the knowledge and expertise to do the job right and a track record of reliability. So spend the day at Hempstead Lake State Park, or do some window shopping at Roosevelt Field. Just leave the dirty work to us. You can book service by phone, web or app.
