Budget-Friendly, Expert Lawn Care Services in McAllen

LawnStarter offers budget-friendly lawn care services tailored to McAllen's diverse landscapes. Why work up a sweat doing yard work when you can stroll La Plaza Mall or enjoy birdwatching near this bustling hub city? Leave your lawn to our experts.

Our local pros understand this one-of-a-kind Texan city, from regional lawn pests and diseases to the most suitable grass for your McAllen lawn. We'll take care of everything!

Best Grass Types for McAllen

Warm-season grasses are the best option for McAllen, where water conservation is crucial due to the warm and hot climate.

  • St. Augustinegrass: Well-suited for the warm coastal climate of McAllen, St. Augustinegrass forms a lush, green lawn. In addition to being heat-tolerant, it is a relatively low-maintenance grass with broad, flat blades.
  • Bermudagrass: Perfectly suited to full sunlight, Bermudagrass is heat-resistant and drought-resistant. It's the standard choice for lawns, parks, and sports fields in McAllen.
  • Zoysiagrass: This grass is heat-tolerant and adaptable to different soil types. The grass forms a dense, attractive lawn with only an inch of water each week.
  • Buffalograss: Native to the region, buffalograss is the most well-adapted grass for McAllen lawns. It is drought-tolerant, low-maintenance, and easily handles the South Texas heat.
  • Centipedegrass: This grass is known for its heat tolerance and low maintenance requirements. It suits McAllen's warm climate and thrives in slightly acidic soils.

Consider water requirements, heat tolerance, and maintenance preferences when selecting a grass type for your lawn.

Common Lawn Pests and Diseases in McAllen

McAllen has its share of pesky lawn pests. Brown patches and weak turf could mean problematic insects have nested in your yard.

McAllen Lawn Pests:

  • Chinch Bugs: These minuscule insects drain the sap out of grass blades, turning them yellow and potentially killing the grass.
  • White Grubs: These larvae feed on grass roots, causing brown patches and weakened turf.
  • Sod Webworms: These moth larvae chew on grass blades, causing visible damage.

Lawn diseases in McAllen are caused by fungal pathogens that thrive in warm and humid regions. Overwatering, poor soil drainage, and inadequate air circulation can create favorable environments for fungal growth.

McAllen Lawn Diseases:

  • Brown Patch: A fungal disease resulting in circular brown areas on the lawn, prevalent in McAllen's warm, humid conditions.
  • Take-All Root Rot: This soil-borne fungus causes roots to rot, resulting in wilting and dying turf.
  • Gray Leaf Spot: This fungal lawn disease is characterized by small, dark lesions on grass blades, causing the grass to look unhealthy.

Due to McAllen's humid climate, you must monitor your lawn frequently for signs of pests and diseases. Regular maintenance, timely intervention, and efficient watering are essential to managing these problems. LawnStarter pros have the tools and know-how to treat and prevent these common McAllen lawn issues.

Other Outdoor Services We Offer

LawnStarter is here to be your one-stop shop for all your outdoor needs. Ask one of our friendly pros about these supplemental services:

  • Irrigation solutions: In the Rio Grande Valley, water conservation and efficient irrigation solutions are imperative. Our custom irrigation setups prevent lawn diseases while conserving both water and money. 
  • Yard cleanup: McAllen yards take a beating as tropical storms and hurricanes roll in off the Gulf of Mexico. LawnStarter will have your landscape looking as good as new.
  • Xeriscaping: These unique, eco-friendly landscapes are perfect for local wildlife. Plus, they require minimal maintenance. Ask your local pro about xeriscaping for a water-wise, low-maintenance landscape that attracts birds like the Great Kiskadee and Altamira Oriole.

Imagine having a beautiful lawn and garden without the hassle of heavy equipment or hard work.

I'm so happy to have Doug & Heather doing my yard work, as they did a great job at my house on Treyburn. They also did a great job at my new home, but we would like it cut a bit shorter in the future, please. I'm grateful they didn't leave lawn clippings all over sidewalk and drive and that they were sure to cut the patch of grass in the dog pen!
