Easy, Affordable Lawn Care Services in Long Island City

Long Island City is home to several waterfront parks that overlook the Manhattan skyline. This, combined with a thriving arts and culture scene, means you don’t have time to do lawn chores.

Long Island City’s humid subtropical climate gives it warm and humid summers and freezing, snowy winters. This can make lawn care quite a chore.

That’s why LawnStarter offers professional lawn care services. Our pros know NYC’s climate and offer affordable and customizable lawn care services, rain or shine. Whether it’s fertilization, aeration, or bush trimming, we do it all. So go explore the city - we’ll handle the lawn.

Best Grass Types for Long Island City

Long Island City is in USDA Hardiness Zone 7b, meaning the grass, plants, and trees need to survive minimum temperatures of 10 to 5Β°F. As a result, only cool-season grasses can thrive here. Popular varieties include:

  • Fine Fescue: Has moderate to high drought resistance and doesn’t need frequent mowing. However, it doesn’t like heavy foot traffic.
  • Kentucky Bluegrass: It has the best cold tolerance of the cool-season grasses and quickly recovers from wear and tear. However, it has a low shade tolerance.
  • Perennial Ryegrass: A medium to dark green grass that handles foot traffic well, but not shade, heat, or drought.
  • Tall Fescue: A low-maintenance grass that tolerates heat and drought. However, if it takes damage, it takes a while for it to recover.

How Often Should You Mow Your Lawn? Mow weekly in spring, summer, and fall. Stop mowing in winter.

Common Lawn Pests and Diseases in Long Island City

In addition to general lawn care, our pros will keep your lawn safe from pests and diseases like:

  • White Grubs: They feed on the grassroots, causing the grass to die. Animals and birds can also ruin your lawn by digging and eating the grubs.
  • Chinch Bugs: Feed on plant juices to turn grass blades yellow and then brown. They are most active in sunny, dry areas.
  • Dollar Spot: Caused by excessive moisture, brown patches the size of a silver dollar form and damage your lawn.
  • Brown Patch: These patches are on the edges of lawns, and look like smoke rings. Poor air circulation, overfertilization, and overwatering make them worse.

Other Outdoor Services We Offer

Hand your landscaping needs to our pros. We take care of everything your landscape needs.

  • Aeration: Our pros energize your soil to promote new, healthy growth.
  • Fertilization: We give your lawn the nourishment it needs to survive Long Island City’s climate.
  • Landscaping: Whether you need a new flower or vegetable garden or xeriscape, our pros will design the landscape of your dreams.

Just call, click, or download the LawnStarter app, and you’ll get quotes right away. Let LawnStarter’s pros take over your lawn chores so you can enjoy events at MoMA PS1 or see a Broadway show at Times Square.
