Hire the Best Lawn Care Service in Traverse City

You can ski on snow-filled mountains or chill out on Traverse City’s freshwater beaches. There aren’t many cities with as diverse of a range of outdoor activities β€” and weather.

Unfortunately, this range makes lawn care difficult in the Cherry Capital of the World. Freezing temperatures and ample snowfall may make a skier's paradise, but your landscape needs professional assistance to thrive.

LawnStarter’s pros will give your lawn proper care to mitigate the lake-effect snow and freezing temperatures to bring it safely into the spring. From the nippy winters to the short, warm summers, our pros mow, trim, fertilize, and more to keep your grass healthy.

Here's what lawn care looks like in Cherryland:

Best Grass Types for Traverse City

Because temperatures can fall as low as -10 degrees Fahrenheit, cool-season grasses grow best in Traverse City. Our pros recommend:

  • Kentucky Bluegrass: This grass species is about as popular as the cherries. KBG is the most commonly used turf in the Mitten State, producing a blue-green hue and dense, soft texture. 
  • Tall Fescue: It is disease-tolerant and performs well in shade. This turf has a deep root system that also makes it drought-tolerant. 
  • Perennial Ryegrass: This grass type performs best when used in a mix. Many combine ryegrass with KBG for quick growth and durability.

How Often Should You Mow Your Lawn? Our experts recommend mowing weekly from April through November when the grass is growing. Gradually reduce your mowing frequency when the growth slows between October and November.

Common Lawn Pests and Diseases in Traverse City 

While snow can provide insulation for grass, too much snow can result in certain fungal diseases. Here are some of the most common pests and diseases that plague the Coast Guard City.

  • Chewing Insects: Billbugs and armyworms chew on grass, causing it to turn yellow or brown.
  • Sucking Insects: Watch out for pests that suck the juices from your grass like vampires. They leave behind damaged, yellow, or brown turf.
  • Fungal Diseases: Red thread grows in high humidity, and the snow cover causes lawn diseases like gray snow mold.

Other Services We offer

Not only do our experts handle mowing, trimming, edging, and other lawn treatments that beautify your grass, but they also provide a suite of landscaping services. Additional services include:

  • Walkways: Lead guests to your entryway and other areas of your property with paved walkways. Stones and pavers come in a variety of colors, sizes, and shapes to reflect your personality.
  • Mulching: Retain moisture and enhance soil in your garden beds with organic mulch. Mulch adds texture, color, and visual interest to your landscape.
  • Tree and Shrub Maintenance: Ensure your privacy hedges, specimen trees, and shrubs are neat, trim, and healthy whether they are covered with snow or not.

It doesn’t matter if you’re located closer to one of the wineries or out near the lighthouses, LawnStarter’s pros can handle your lawn care and landscaping needs.

Hand over your chores today and start enjoying your warm (but short) summer, without having to worry about lawn care. Call, click, or download the LawnStarter app today for your free quotes.
