Easy, Affordable Lawn Care Services in Portsmouth

Portsmouth is known for its mild climate, but that doesn't mean lawn care is a breeze. If you want to have a beautiful lawn without the hassle of maintaining it yourself, let LawnStarter handle all your outdoor chores.

How LawnStarter Can Take Care of Your Lawn: Whether you need regular maintenance, seasonal care, or more specialized services, we have the expertise and equipment to get the job done right. Our pros do it all, from mowing and edging to fertilization and weed control.

Common Grass Types: Bermudagrass, tall fescue, centipedegrass, buffalograss, perennial ryegrass, and Kentucky bluegrass thrive in our area.

Best Time to Plant Grass: Spring and fall are the best seasons to plant grass because the weather is mild and the soil is moist.

Spring Lawn Care Tips: Spring is when pests can become a problem. Keep an eye out for pests like grubs and chinch bugs, and take action if necessary.

Fall Lawn Care Tips: Leaves can suffocate your grass and prevent it from getting the sun and air it needs, so it’s vital to rake them up regularly to keep your lawn healthy.


Common Lawn Diseases: Your Portsmouth lawn can be susceptible to brown patch, dollar spot, and powdery mildew.


Other Services We Offer: We also provide outdoor services such as garden care, tree trimming, landscaping, gutter cleaning, and more.


To get started with LawnStarter, all you need to do is call us or download our app. We’ll provide you with an instant customized quote for your lawn care needs.
