What Our Customers Are Saying

Should I water my lawn today?

It's way too cold to water your lawn today! Once the snow has melted and the temperatures have risen, keep an eye on your grass. If it looks yellow or droopy, it's time to turn on the sprinklers and make it rain.

Detroit lawn care services

Motor City, the birthplace of motown, the largest and most populated city in Michigan, that's right Detroit -- we're looking at you!



Prep your lawn for the freezing cold


What better time to visit Detroit than when it is transformed into a winter wonderland? While the snow is dazzling, it's not the best for your lawn! Detroit is considered a colder climate zone. It is the only major U.S. city that is north of Canada. The winters are long and freezing cold, so it's super important to not only prep your yard for winter, but to maintain your lawn during the cold seasons.


Fall brings rainfall, and most grass starts to grow in September and October until the temperatures start to freeze. For winter prep, you should consider laying down mulch in the fall to protect it from freezing under the snow. While weeds don't grow much in the winter, the mulch will protect your lawn into the spring. Lawns are susceptible to freezing in Detroit, and mulch can help keep lawns warmer and delay plant dormancy. Dormancy is a natural part of the grass life cycle.


Did you know your grass can grow mold, especially in freezing conditions? Detroit snow removal services can help prevent your lawn from essentially getting sick! Mold lives under the snow during winter, and as it melts away, you will notice a matted look to the turf with a strange grey or pink hue. Fertilizing in the spring can also help prevent snow mold.


Springtime in Detroit


Spring in Michigan starts in mid-March and temperatures quickly climb from freezing cold to 50 degree weather. The frost can continue into May. Some days can be sunny and warm but many days receive rainfall. While dormant, grass should only get one inch of water per week, including rain. Detroit averages 133 rainy days per year, which means it rains over a third of the year! The days slowly get warmer and warmer, but random snow storms can last into April. The unpredictability of spring makes caring for your yard tricky!


Not only do you have to worry about the cold temperatures, but the rapid changes in weather can be an inconvenience for your yard as well. Temperatures in Detroit are never consistent, large fluctuations are very common. Spring afternoons can reach 70 degrees, the nights and early mornings commonly drop into the 30s. The same goes for winter, fall, and summer; unexpected rain or snow can throw your lawn care routine off if it isn't managed by a professional.


Keeping your lawn lush in the hot summer sun


The Detroit River is one of the four major straits that connects to the Great Lakes. Because of a direct connection to fresh water, lawns have the ability to grow very quickly in spring and summer. Keeping your grass moisturized and nurtured during summer is one of the most important aspects of the season. Light, frequent watering each week will help keep your grass healthy and happy. Be sure not to water too much or too deep, this is a waste because the water quickly goes deeper than the short, summer roots. The best time to water is in the morning or early afternoon, because you don't want the grass wet if the evenings get too cool. This can cause mold the same way rain or snow can. Summers in Detroit are not that long, so why spend your precious free time pushing a bulky, noisy mower or breaking your back over a rake?


Not only does the grass grow lush and green in spring and summer, but so does crabgrass! Crabgrass is an invasive weed and can take over your entire lawn if you don't get it quickly under control. For a regular homeowner, it can be nearly impossible to eliminate. Not only is it challenging to remove, but it can also lead to many other lawn care problems. Crabgrass is known to be an indicator of other, more severe lawn issues such as disease, pests, and excessive dryness. When grass dies or thins out due to these issues, crabgrass tends to grow in its place. Once crabgrass has begun growing on your lawn, it will spread out and invade even healthy areas of the lawn. The start of a crabgrass invasion also tends to cause other weeds to begin growing in the area, as well. It takes a plan to get rid of crabgrass, and we recommended reaching out to a professional to handle the issue.

The grass in Michigan is different than the grass in other states, so hiring someone who knows what type is grass is best grown is important.

Lawn Love is here to help! Using satellite imaging technology, we can determine the estimated cost of the work. Each lawn is different, and your quote will be personalized to ensure you are satisfied with what you are getting.

Lawn care in Detroit can be challenging for a homeowner, especially if you don't have time to keep up with the sudden weather changes common to Michigan. No matter the time of year, the weather can change suddenly and result in quicker, thicker grass growth. Overgrown and hazardous lawns can be the result, but not if you choose Lawn Love.
