Easy, Affordable Lawn Care Services in Plainfield

Plainfield is in zone 5b according to the USDA Hardiness Zone map, which means that the plants, trees, and grass you plant need to withstand temperatures as low as -15º. Taking care of a lawn in Plainfield requires a lot of effort. Between the hot summers and cold winters, it can be hard to remember what your lawn needs at the different times of year. LawnStarter can help! Our pros are ready to maintain your lawn, trim your hedges, plant flowers, and get rid of weeds.


Most Common Grass Types in Plainfield: Since the winters get so cold here and the hot summers are relatively short, cool-season grasses are the better option. Kentucky bluegrass, bent grass, tall fescue, creeping red fescue, buffalo grass, and perennial ryegrass are popular choices for the greater Chicago area.


Summer Lawn Care Tips for Plainfield: Apply an herbicide in April or May, before the weeds start to appear. Your cool-season grass may turn yellow and go dormant in the summer, but you can prevent that by continuing to water your lawn throughout the hot months. It will need about one inch of water at least a few times per week. And remember: water in the early morning or later evening to prevent water evaporation. Mow your lawn frequently, but no shorter than 3 inches. And let it grow to 4-5 inches before cutting it. Be sure your mower's blades are sharp, otherwise you risk tearing the grass instead of cutting it, which is harmful.


Fall Lawn Care Tips for Plainfield: In the fall, you can keep your grass shorter –– about 1.5 inches high –– and you don't have to mow nearly as often, since the growth slows down a lot. If you have weeds, get rid of them now so they don't overtake your lawn. Aerate your lawn to ensure it receives ample water, sun, and nutrients to keep it alive throughout the winter, and then overseed it. This is also a good time to fertilize. Check for grubs –– if you find more than 12 in a square foot, you may want to apply a treatment to get rid of them. Otherwise, they'll go further down into the ground, causing more damage to your turf. Finally, rake your lawn to remove all the leaves before the first snow. This makes it harder for molds, diseases, and fungi to grow.


Common Lawn Diseases: Summer patch, necrotic ring spot, and brown patch will cause your lawn to become discolored and eventually die if left untreated.


Common Lawn Pests: White grubs are the most common and damaging lawn pests in the area. Northern mole crickets, sod webworms, and chinch bugs are also common.


Other Outdoor Services We Offer: When you need more than lawn care, you can still count on us. We have pros who build fences, decks, and hardscaping. We also offer power washing, gutter cleaning, and so much more.


LawnStarter is your go-to for all your outdoor service needs. We offer quick and customized quotes, so give us a call, click, or download our app to get started.

I enjoy landscaping and have a lot of experience! I offer a wide range of services so please reach out and let me know what kind of help you may need.
