The Best Lawn Care Schedule for Midwestern Lawns

St Louis and St Charles area lawn care experts share their routine for lawn care services

As we are winding another lawn care, landscaping and mowing season down, we wanted to take time to share our recommended lawn care schedule with clients and friends. We have found that this is a useful framework for homeowners looking to plan out their home and lawn maintenance projects for spring. With our years of servicing and mowing client lawns, we've worked out a rhythm that works well with the St Louis weather and area lawns.
