Easy, Affordable Lawn Care Services in West Des Moines

Maintaining a healthy, lush lawn in West Des Moines requires proper attention and care because of our warm summers and cool winters. But with LawnStarter, you no longer have to worry. Our pros can take care of all your lawn care needs.

How LawnStarter Can Take Care of Your Lawn: We can handle everything from mowing, fertilizing, and aeration to pest control and lawn disease management.


Property Maintenance Code: Homeowners must keep their weeds and grass less than 10 inches in height.

Common Grass Types: Kentucky bluegrass, fine fescue, and tall fescue thrive in our climate.

Spring Lawn Care Tips: Aerate the lawn to improve soil quality and water retention. Also, mow regularly to keep the grass at a moderate height.

Fall Lawn Care Tips: It’s best to fertilize the lawn to promote root growth in the fall to prepare the grass for winter. You should also overseed your turf to fill in bare spots.


Common Lawn Pests and Diseases: Grubs, armyworms, chinch bugs, brown patch, and dollar spot can damage your lawn.


Other Services We Offer: We also offer many other outdoor services, including tree and shrub care, mulching, and hedge trimming. Our team of experts can help keep your entire property looking its best.

I started this company because I enjoy helping people and I love working outside. I do lawn care for those two reasons alone. I'm an Army veteran and get the job done right with the right equipment. Except for my military time, I've lived my entire life in Iowa.
