He went above and beyond! He had to pick up the slack of last weeks person and we really appreciate it.

-Caroline m. in Kensington, MD


Excellent and prompt service. Got into a pinch fast because my previous lawn company quit on me when my two week cut was due, which can leave me in a tough spot with my HOA. Lawnstarter was competitively priced & came out within a couple of days.

-Mathis K. in Kensington, MD


Edward does an outstanding job! If I have a trash can at the curb, he brings it in, he goes that extra step! It never goes unnoticed and is always appreciated!!!

Worry Free Lawn Care for Kensington

With a population of fewer than 3,000 residents, Kensington is most frequently regarded as a sleepy little farming town. However, this historic town has so much to offer. As a major commuter suburb, it’s close enough to work and a number of attractions. If you haven’t taken the time to explore Kensington, make a resolution this year to get out and enjoy this dynamic town.

Kensington is best well known for its contributions to the arts. Art galleries abound here where local studios feature prominent glass works, metal, sculptures, and more from local artists. The Kensington Arts Theatre is another popular venue, offering live shows and musical performances on a regular basis.

Kensington is also home to one of the state’s most beloved Farmer’s Markets. Open Saturdays throughout the year, rain or shine, this open-air market provides a place for local and regional vendors to sell baked goods, fruits and vegetables, meats, crafts, and more. Each summer, the Kensington Historical Society also hosts a concert series in Howard Park across from the Farmers Market.

If you live in Kensington, you might find it a challenge to squeeze in a visit to all of the city’s top attractions. This is especially true if your to-do list is jam-packed. Make a new list with want-do-do activities and leave the outdoor chores to someone else.

At LawnStarter, our goal is to free up your time by taking care of all of your lawn and landscaping needs. We can handle anything from lawn mowing to flower care, with the sole intent of creating the lawn of your wildest dreams. And We’re just an app-tap away.

The LawnStarter mobile app allows you to enter your zip code and receive a list of services available in your area, along with potential start dates and prices. You pick the items that work best for you, and as soon as you confirm, our friendly technicians will begin making a plan to develop your lawn care package.

No time? No problem. With LawnStarter, you can reclaim some of that lost time and get back to enjoying everything the great city of Kensington has to offer.

Hey Mike, the cut looks great. The only thing I noticed was that my side gate was left propped open with the rock. If we can just make sure it's shut, I'm good! Doesn't have to be locked. Also, I noticed that only one yard of the neighbor house/duplex was mowed, so one side was uncut. Can we add that side of the house to the service? I'd just like to get all the grass on both properties cut (both units). Let me know if we need to renegotiate the service fee! Thanks for your help!
