Hi Earnest, thank you again everything looks great. Would it be possible to cut the grass a little higher. Seems too low for st Augustine but you would know best. Thank you again, your work is appreciated.

Easy, Affordable Lawn Care Services in Middletown

Cold winters plus hot summers can make it hard for a homeowner to care for their lawn. That's why LawnStarter offers all the lawn care services you could ever need in Middletown. Whether the sun is shining or the snow is falling, you certainly have better things to do than work in the yard, so let us handle that for you.


Most Common Grass Types in Middletown: The most popular grasses in Middletown are cool-season ones. These include Kentucky bluegrass, tall fescue, fine fescue, and perennial ryegrass.


Spring Lawn Care Tips: Make sure your irrigation system is working and evenly distributing water. Apply a pre-emergent herbicide to ward off any weeds before they take hold. Get your mower tuned up and sharpen the blades before the first mow –– those thawed-out grass blades are fragile and need to be cut, not torn. This is also a good time to dethatch, aerate, and fertilize.


Summer Lawn Care Tips: Keep cutting your grass, but try to do it only once a week at most. This lets the grass grow a little longer and have deeper, stronger roots. Water your lawn in the early morning, but be sure to not drown your lawn. Adjust the amount of irrigation water based on how much rainfall you've gotten.


Fall Lawn Care Tips: The most important thing to remember is to keep the leaves off the lawn. A thick blanket of leaves, especially wet ones, is a breeding ground for molds and fungi. You can let them stay on the grass if you mulch them first –– this lets the nutrients absorb back into the soil while also allowing air and sun to reach the grass. Overseed any bald spots in your lawn and apply another round of herbicide to stop weeds from germinating first thing next spring.


Common Lawn Diseases in Middletown: Dollar spot, summer patch, fairy ring, red thread, powdery mildew, necrotic ring spot, and rust are common molds, fungi, and diseases that cause your lawn to turn yellow, and eventually, if not treated, die. LawnStarter's pros will diagnose and treat your lawn if you need a hand figuring out the problem.


Common Lawn Pests: Sod webworms, grubs, beetles, carpenter ants, and chinch bugs are threats to your lawn's health. Keep them under control so they don't eat too much of the grass's blades and roots.


Other Outdoor Services We Offer: LawnStarter is so much more than just lawns. Our pros are equipped to build or repair your fence, pressure wash your driveway, clean your gutters, and lay a stone pathway. No matter what you need to make your outdoor area better, we can do it.


It's so easy to get started. Call, click, or use our app to request a custom quote. We offer great prices and convenient scheduling.
