FAQ About Lawn Maintenance in Winston-Salem

What's the best way to maintain your lawn?

In the Winston-Salem area, maintaining a lush, green lawn involves a number of things, from consistent mowing, to weeding, watering, fertilization aeration and more. The average lawn size here in Winston-Salem is 8,220 square feet, which typically takes 74 minutes to mow if you do it yourself.

Additionally, you'll want to fertilize your lawn 6 times per year, with each application tailored to that time of year. It's also a good idea to get a soil test done once every 2-4 years to ensure your soil isn't lacking key nutrients. Professional fertilization in Winston-Salem averages about $64 per application, and includes spot weed treatment.

Aeration is a process that relieves compaction, helps grass establish roots, and allows air and nutrients to reach the soil. Ideally, you should aerate once per year, every three years at the very minimum. Despite it's importance, only 9 percent of Winston-Salem homeowners get aeration. Aeration in Winston-Salem costs $141 on average, but depends on lawn size, and should be done in spring or fall.

Finally, watering is critical. You'll generally want to water in the morning before 7:20 am or in the evening after 5:06 pm so the water does not evaporate. Winston-Salem does have watering restrictions.

How much does it cost to have your lawn mowed in Winston-Salem?

While the average cost of grass cutting in Winston-Salem is $38.74, the price depends primarily on lawn size and mowing frequency.

Here is the average price in Winston-Salem by lawn size:

  • 1/8 Acre: $34.8
  • 1/4 Acre: $38.7
  • 1/3 Acre: $42.9
  • 1/2 Acre: $56.7

Here is the average mowing price by frequency:

  • Weekly: $31.38
  • Biweekly: $43.39
  • Monthly: $47.65

Two other factors that can increase price are corner lots and gates. In Winston-Salem, 64% of homes are on a corner lot, and 64% of homes have backyard gates.

Can I get fined for not cutting my lawn?

First, you'll have to check your Homeowners Association rules. In Winston-Salem, 59% of homeowners are part of a HOA, and most HOAs have restrictions on grass and overgrown bushes.

Questions and Answers


Are there watering restrictions in Winston-Salem, NC?

We could not find any records of watering restrictions in Winston-Salem, NC. Be sure to check your local government website for the most up-to-date information


Does Winston-Salem, NC have long / overgrown grass ordinances?

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.-- People in the Happy Hills neighborhood of Winston-Salem say they're tired of the city threatening fines for overgrown lawns, when the city does not appear to be keeping up some of its lawns to the same standards. Tim Rhodes says for years he's complained about city owned property along Liberia and Pitts Streets. City code says it is unlawful for lawns to grow over 8 inches tall.



"What is your number one lawn care tip?"

For mowing the lawn, setting the (standard residential) mower at its highest height prevents scalping and bald spots. It also helps the grass to appear more like a lush carpet.

I cut our zoysia grass about every two weeks, weather permitting (MD, U.S.A.). Each time, I cut the grass in different directions--horizontally, vertically, diagonally, box design from outer edge to center--to prevent permanent ruts from forming.

There's a very steep, sizable hill in our backyard. Cutting that first, then waiting a day or two to cut the front and sides has made mowing the lawn much more manageable and saved the expense of paying a professional lawn service, which charged a premium for the difficulty of maintaining the treacherous hill. It's also added two days of push & pull exercises and steps toward the 10k minimum goal on those days.
