Easy, Affordable Lawn Care Services in Riverside

Riverside has a lot to enjoy, such as museums, gardens, and parks. Don’t waste time mowing your lawn. Let LawnStarter do it instead.


The Most Common Grass Types in Riverside: Bermudagrass, tall fescue, and Kentucky bluegrass.


Spring Lawn Care Tips for Riverside: Aerate your lawn to break up thatch and let essential nutrients reach the roots. Check your soil to see if it’s healthy (between 5 and 8.5 pH). Add a fertilizer best suited for your soil. Consider grasscycling, which is when you mow the lawn and let the cut grass clippings fall back onto the lawn. This will give your lawn a boost in energy.


Gardening Tips for Riverside: Understand what weather your plants like and when to plant them. For example, cooler-season vegetables can be grown throughout the winter and thus can be planted in the fall. Rotate crops from year to year to prevent disease. Use companion planting, which is when you plant vegetation next to each other so that each grows better. Look out for insects that can cause trouble. Add a rain barrel to collect rainwater and runoff. Riverside goes through a period of drought in the summer, so having this water lets you keep watering plants into the drought season.


Common Lawn Pests: Black cutworm, fall armyworm, sod webworm, white grub, and billbug.


Common Lawn Diseases: Anthracnose, bipolaris leaf spot, curvularia blight, dollar spot, fairy ring, fusarium blight, gray leaf spot, pink snow mold, pythium blight, red thread, brown patch, rust, southern blight, spring dead spot, summer patch, and take all patch.


What Services Do We Offer?: LawnStarter’s pros not only offer a wide range of lawn care services, we install and repair drainage, clean gutters, and remove trees and tree stumps.

ASK THE EXPERTS

"What's your number one tip for improving the backyard of your home?"


Trimming the weeds and tall grass is a simple thing which can quickly transform the appearance of your yard.

After mowing your yard, a quick trim with a string trimmer of the grass and weeds that your lawnmower missed will work wonders for your yard. Trimming around the perimeter fence, around tree trunks (be careful to not dig into the bark), and along any other raised driveways or foundations will quickly convey the message that your yard is tranquil and in-control. It's the attention to detail, like making your bed, that reflects the impression that this space is cared-for by someone. And it's cheap and easy!
