Easy, Affordable Lawn Care Services in Independence

With an average of 43 inches of rain annually, plus hot summers and snowy winters, keeping your lawn healthy is a challenge. You need to know how much to water it, when to fertilize it, how short to cut it, and what to do to protect it from the snow. We know you're busy and have your own schedule to keep track of (not to mention the kids)! That's why we offer affordable and convenient lawn care and outdoor services. LawnStarter's pros will handle it all, from mowing and blowing leaves to landscaping and trimming trees.


Most Common Grass Types in Independence: Lying in a transition zone, Independence can host both cool- and warm-season grasses. The best grasses for our city are turf-type tall fescue, Kentucky bluegrass, fine-leaf fescue, and Zoysiagrass.


Summer Lawn Care Tips: Your lawn needs about 1 to 1.5 inches of water per week, including rainfall, but check specific amounts for your grass type. Always water in the early morning before the sun gets hot to prevent water loss from evaporation. Like water needs, each specific grass type has a perfect height, but on average, mow your grass to 2-4 inches high. The most important thing to remember though is to never cut more than 1/3 of the grass's height at once.


Fall Lawn Care Tips: Continue cutting your grass as long as it's still growing –– until the first hard frost. Fall is the best time to aerate your lawn, ensuring enough water, air, and nutrients can reach the root system, preparing it for winter. After you've had your fun jumping in the leaves, rake them away. Keeping a thick layer of leaves on the grass suffocates it and invites molds, fungi, and pests. If you want to keep the leaves on the grass, mulch or mow them so the pieces are small enough to let air and water through. Finally, in mid-to-late fall, apply a granular fertilizer to your lawn, giving it a nice boost of nutrients before the freezing cold.


Most Common Lawn Diseases in Independence: Discolored grass and bare spots can be caused by a variety of diseases, including brown patch, powdery mildew, red thread, snow mold, fairy ring, and dollar spot.


Most Common Lawn Pests: Grubs, chinch bugs, armyworms, and sod webworms eat the blades and roots of your grass, causing severe damage if left untreated. Not sure how to get rid of them? Call LawnStarter. We'll have a pro on the way in no time to identify and treat the pests plaguing your lawn.


Other Outdoor Services We Offer: Besides routine lawn care, weed control, lawn disease and pest control, and fertilization, LawnStarter's pros install landscaping, clean gutters, build and repair fences, and power wash houses and driveways.


If you have a yard, you need LawnStarter. We'll handle all your outdoor-related chores and keep your property looking pristine all year long. Call, click, or download our app for a quick and customized quote. We can have a pro at your house ready to work within a few days.

Hello, everyone! My name is Brandon Caruthers, and I'm with B.C. Lawn Care. I started my own business in 2016 with just a pickup truck, a push mower, and a weed eater. Since then, I've upgraded my equipment to include a big, wide cutting, line laying, 50" toro and a leaf blower. I take pride in my work and I value repeat customers.
