Cheri J.'s lawn in Ruskin, FL

Sergio A.'s lawn in Ruskin, FL

We have just started with LawnStarter and Tyler has done an amazing job. Refreshing that somebody comes out and doesn't try to upsell and have you have services done that are not necessary. Is very honest and knowledgeable. The lawn looks amazing. Couldn't be happier.

-Sergio A. in Ruskin, FL

Jim B.'s lawn in Ruskin, FL

First mow using Lawn Starter. It looks great, they came in the afternoon as I had requested and hoped but was told it would depend on the schedule and was not guaranteed. They also blew some leaves off the back deck that I was not expecting. Thank you for that. Over all off to a great start.

Simple and efficient lawn care for Ruskin residents

On the shores of the Little Manatee River rests the small city of Ruskin, FL, but its personality is anything but quiet. This scenic town is home to a major Amazon facility as well as one of the first LEED-certified schools in the state. If you are lucky enough to live and work in Ruskin, you are no doubt aware of all the exciting things to do and see, but have you considered these attractions for your next weekend excursion?

For a quiet family experience, head over to the Ruskin Family Drive-In to catch a movie on a warm summer night. This theatre features old classics and new blockbuster hits, so make sure you check the schedule regularly to find the perfect movie. Grab a bite to eat, first, or you could cook your own dinner using the fresh produce you select earlier in the day at the MiraBay Farmer’s Market.

Cockroach Bay Aquatic Preserve is a great spot to check out by boat. If you’re interest in birdwatching, go in the spring, or head out on a hiking adventure on the park’s system of hiking trails. For a guided adventure, pay a visit to Camp Bayou, where you can explore a preserved portion of Florida's original habitats and engage in educational tours and demonstrations. If you want to head out into the wild on your own, there are multiple boat rentals and guided boat tours where you can simply enjoy nature, or go scouting for dolphins and whales.

Once you’ve worked up an appetite, don’t head back home for dinner. Instead, stop at one of Ruskin’s many delicious eateries. The Dog House and More has a large menu of American, seafood, and sandwich offerings to please the whole family at a moderate price, wile Old Castle Tavern features more upscale eats that are perfect for date night.

Ruskin may be teeming with things to do, but mowing your lawn should be nowhere near that list. Don’t spend your precious weekend time laboring over your lawn. Instead, contact the premier lawn care service in Ruskin–LawnStarter Lawn Care.

LawnStarter is the name to know for all things lawn care. We offer a range of services, including tree trimming, lawn mowing, and flowerbed maintenance. We can accommodate any special request, and are happy to work with you to make sure the services you select fit within your budget in schedule. In fact, we make it easy by offering the easy-to-use LawnStarter mobile app. This app is available for both Apple and Android devices, and allows you to schedule, cancel, or even modify services once you’ve installed it on your phone.

We want to make sure you are happy with your lawn, as well as with how you choose to spend your weekend hours. Contact LawnStarter as soon as possible, so you can get back to experiencing everything Ruskin has to offer.

Questions and Answers


Are there watering restrictions in Ruskin, FL?

Water use restrictions are designed to help us smartly manage the community’s water supply throughout the year. Here you’ll find when you can water your lawn, special exceptions for newly planted landscaping, rules on washing your car, and more. We’ve also included tips on low-flow irrigation and other ways to keep your yard looking healthy while cutting water use.



Does Ruskin, FL have long / overgrown grass ordinances?

We have no records of city or county-mandated long grass ordinances in Ruskin, FL. However, 76% of customers in Ruskin report having overgrown grass restrictions mandated by their Homeowners association.


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

Mow your lawn higher and more often: When the sun is out in full force, it can be tempting to cut your lawn as short as possible so you can get by with having to mow less. Don’t fall into this trap--keeping your lawn cropped too short can cause unnecessary stress on your lawn, especially in intense heat. Instead, mow your lawn higher and more often so your grass can look its best. It may require a little extra work on your part, but your lawn will thank you.

They did a great job. A couple things for next time: there is a small patch of grass on the front right if you're facing the house that my neighbor actually prefers to cut when they do their lawn because it is just a small extension of theirs. So Jonathan can leave that alone next time. In exchange if he'd be willing to cut the small portion of the front left while that house is for sale that would be awesome (it brings down the rest of the yard). Thanks!

Did a great job considering how tall the grass had become. On next cutting I would like oak leaves to be blown out of beds and some trimming around tree circles. Previous mowers let most areas to get out of hand. I would think this would be part of future mowings.
