Easy, Affordable Lawn Care Services in Princeton

In addition to Princeton University, Princeton has spacious parks, hiking trails, and Carnegie Lake. It doesn’t take a college education to know there are outdoor activities that don’t involve a lawn mower.

Princeton’s hot, wet summers and cold, snowy winters combined with nor’easter activity create a difficult lawn care routine.

Not for LawnStarter, though. If there was a Master’s degree in lawn care, each of our pros would have one. They’re well-educated in New Jersey’s climate and use that knowledge towards affordable, high-quality lawn care.

Best Grass Types for Princeton

Princeton is in the northeastern region of the United States, so only cool-season grasses can thrive here. Below are the most common varieties:

  • Kentucky Bluegrass: This cool-season grass thrives in colder temperatures and is often mixed with fine fescue for optimal growth.
  • Fine Fescue: This cool-season grass is drought-tolerant and is commonly mixed with Kentucky Bluegrass.
  • Perennial Ryegrass: This cool-season grass is resilient in cold weather and can withstand heavy foot traffic.
  • Tall Fescue: This cool-season grass is low-maintenance and tolerates heat and drought, but is slow to recover from damage.

How Often Should You Mow Your Lawn? Mow weekly during the growing season (spring, summer, and fall).

Common Lawn Pests and Diseases in Princeton

LawnStarter’s pros supplement your lawn with protection from common pests and diseases, such as:

  • Chinch Bugs: These small critters feed on turf, creating yellow patches in your lawn that eventually turn brown.
  • Billbugs: These insects eat at your lawn, causing brown spots and thinning turf.
  • Pink Patch: This disease causes pink patches (about 2 to 6 inches wide) to form in a yard.
  • Rust: True to its name, this disease causes your grass to look like it has rust on it.

Other Outdoor Services We Offer

In addition to lawn care, LawnStarter will take care of any landscaping woes you might have:

  • Bush Trimming: Our pros remove the parts of the bush that are disease-ridden and dying, preserving the health of the rest of it.
  • Sodding: We lay grass to create a fresh, new lawn.
  • Mulching: We put down mulch on your soil, giving it nutrition and keeping weeds from growing.

Whether you live in Bustleton, Hiltonia, Central West, or anywhere else in Princeton, you’ll benefit from LawnStarter’s extensive lawn care education. Giving us tenure is easy - just call, click, or use the LawnStarter app, and you’ll get quotes instantly. No strings attached.
