Terrence is great! Talked with him about the work to be done, and the finished product looks great! Believe there needs to be a improved communication between the website directions and the crew. But great job!

LawnStarter's Mobile App

Easy, Affordable Lawn Care Services in Washington DC

The United States capital has regular winter snowfalls but hot summers. This, combined with DC being as electrifying as NYC, makes growing and maintaining a lawn a huge time-sink. That’s where LawnStarter, which offers services like landscaping, mowing, and fertilization, comes in.


Common Grass Types in Washington, DC: The five most common types of grass in Washington, DC are Bermudagrass, tall fescue, Kentucky bluegrass, centipedegrass, and Zoysiagrass.


Spring Lawn Care Tips for DC: Rake your lawn to wake up the grass after being dormant and compacted all winter. Overseed, fertilize, and dethatch, but skip aerating. Apply fresh mulch, start up the irrigation system, and bring out your lawn mower. It's also a good idea to clean the gutters, prune and trim your bushes, and apply pre-emergent herbicide to ward off the weeds.


Fall Lawn Care Tips for DC: Keep mowing until the grass stops growing. Water when needed as long as the temps don't drop below freezing. Rake often, aerate, apply a nitrogen-rich fertilizer and seed to fill in bare or burned spots, and eliminate lawn pests.


Common Lawn Pests: Cicada killer wasps, white grubs, mining bees, sod webworms, scoliid wasps, chinch bugs, and green June beetles.


Common Lawn Diseases: Brown patch, dollar spot, leaf blight, and rust are common issues homeowners have to deal with when they have a lawn. You'll notice bare and/or discolored patches of your grass. Be sure to treat the problem right away to stop the spreading of the disease, but if you're not sure what to do, reach out to LawnStarter. Our pros will identify the diseases, mold, or fungus and create a tailored treatment plan.


How LawnStarter Can Take Care of Your Lawn: LawnStarter offers routine lawn maintenance, bush trimming, leaf removal, weed control, fertilization, and aeration. We also offer landscaping, tree trimming, and sod installation services. Working with LawnStarter couldn’t be easier –– just call or click, and we’ll send you an instant quote.
