Professional Lawn Care Services in Merrick

Merrick is a vibrant suburban community on Long Island, known for its family-friendly vibe and tree-lined streets. The city experiences a humid subtropical climate, characterized by cold winters and hot summers, that makes lawn care a labor of love.

The high humidity puts landscapes at a higher risk of disease and pest invasions, plus the soil and weather variations put your lawn through the wringer. Dealing with all of these headaches rarely counts as a fun day, so let LawnStarter help.

Our pros will mulch, mow, edge, feed, and aerate your lawn. They’ll also make as many cosmetic tweaks as you like to make your Merrick landscape stand out.

Here’s what lawn care looks like in Merrick:

Best Grass Types for Merrick

Merrick’s climate transitions between cold and warm seasons, so lawns here thrive with hardy cool-season varieties that are well-suited to the Northeastern United States.

  • Perennial Ryegrass: A rapid germinator, perennial ryegrass tolerates foot traffic and develops a fine texture. However, this grass will go dormant in the heat without irrigation.
  • Kentucky Bluegrass: Known for its green, lush appearance, this grass is very cold-tolerant and withstands a variety of soil conditions. 
  • Fine Fescue: Fescues are a blend of grass species, including creeping red fescue, that creates shade-tolerant, fine-textured lawns. This grass is not foot-traffic-friendly but doesn’t need to be mowed often.

How Often Should You Mow Your Lawn? Mow your Merrick lawn once a week in the spring and fall, and transition to mowing every one to two weeks in the summer as growth slows.

Common Lawn Pests and Diseases in Merrick

If you don’t want to multiply your lawn problems, here are common lawn pests and diseases to look out for:

  • White Grubs: They cause brown patches in the lawn by chewing on the grass. These small beetle larvae can wreak havoc on healthy, but humid, lawns.
  • Chinch Bugs: With their straw-like contraptions, these tiny insects will suck the sap out of your grass and leave yellow and brown patches.
  • Powdery Mildew: A fungal disease, it manifests as a chalky substance on grass blades and makes your turfgrass weak. 
  • Fairy Ring:  Another fungal nuisance, it leaves brown or dark green rings in the yard. Fairy ring is often accompanied by mushrooms, and our pros recommend immediate treatment

Other Outdoor Services We Offer

LawnStarter makes sure all of your lawn and landscaping needs are met under one booking. Our additional services include: 

  • Weed Control: Make your lawn inhospitable to pesky weeds. Let our pros treat your lawn with the right and most effective weed control solutions.
  • Landscaping Design: Do you wish to add some pizzazz to your outdoor space? Our pros will create the landscape of your dreams.
  • Overseeding: Don’t ignore the bald spots and help your lawn bloom into a lush and thick haven. 

From the streets of Merrick Woods to Merrick’s waterfront and Harbor Green, LawnStarter brings you top-notch lawn care services. It’s time to put down your gardening gloves, let our experts take over, and spend a day at Jones Beach.

All you have to do is call, click, or download the LawnStarter app today to get your free personalized quotes. LawnStarter is here to make lawn care easy-breezy.
