Our Lawn Care Services in Indianapolis
Designed for Indianapolis area lawns, our services solve your lawn’s toughest challenges. Your lush lawn is only a few steps away.
Lawn Pride of Indianapolis approaches your lawn's health and vitality from several angles. Our service includes everything necessary for your grass to grow lush, thick, and green.
The Lawn Pride 7-Application Lawn Care program includes the following services:
- Seven fertilization applications, timed to best support your lawn's growing needs
Turfgrass is a heavy feeder that relies on extensive fertilization to look its best. We provide the nutrition your grass needs to resist pests and thrive. Our time-release fertilizer is loaded with the macro- and micronutrients that build robust roots and lush green leaves.
- Crabgrass and weed control
Weeds aren't just unsightly. They steal vital resources your grass needs to thrive. That's why weed control is an essential part of our services. We time our weed control to disrupt the development of various Indianapolis weeds and eliminate them. In the spring we use two applications of pre-emergent herbicides to deter the growth of grassy weeds like foxtail and crabgrass. We apply broadleaf weed control throughout the season to remove nuisance weeds such as dandelions and more stubborn weeds.
- Lawn surface insect control
We include surface insect control in two of your weed control applications at no additional cost. This service helps eliminate insects that are damaging your lawn's surface by feeding on it.

Why is lawn care important?
Regular lawn care protects and builds your property value. Of course, a lush, thick lawn boosts your home's curb appeal, but it also contributes to the health and beauty of the neighborhood. The pests that burrow into your lawn don't respect property lines. They'll tunnel right into your neighbor's grass. So lawn care makes the neighborhood safer and more enjoyable.
Lawn care also prevents the spread of invasive weeds like crabgrass, ground ivy, and foxtail. These weeds are unsightly, and they compete with your lawn for precious resources like moisture, nutrients, and oxygen. They can also attack our loved ones with allergens, and spiny seed pods can burrow into the ears, nose, and paws of an unsuspecting pet.
When is lawn care season?
Although your lawn's needs change with the seasons, a beautiful lawn requires proper care throughout the year. Fertilization from early spring through the fall is essential to strengthen the grass roots. Aeration is best in the fall, though lawns in severe need of aeration and dethatching can also be performed in the spring. Pest, fungal, and grub control all require year-round applications to maintain your lawn's health. And your lawn needs mowing throughout the year.
Certainly, some times of the year are busier than others. But in Indianapolis, lawn care is an all-year enterprise to ensure you enjoy a thick, lush green lawn.
What is Lawn Aeration and How Is it Done?
Lawn aeration is critical for the health and vitality of your lawn. But what is it? Lawn Pride uses a hydraulic core aerator to penetrate your lawn, removing small plugs of soil, roots, and grass. These plugs are dropped back into place, so your lawn's initial appearance is unchanged. But cutting out the plugs breaks through the thatch in your lawn, allowing water, nutrients, and fresh air to reach the grass roots easily. Aeration also opens up the root zone and promotes more vigorous root development for a thicker, lusher lawn.
What Is Lawn Thatch?
Thatch is a loose, intertwined layer of organic matter that develops between turfgrass and the soil surface. Thatch is made up of living and dead roots, shoots, stems, and leaves that have yet to break down and decay. A small amount of lawn thatch is beneficial in Indianapolis because it insulates the root zone from temperature and moisture fluctuations. Aeration will break through an extensive thatch buildup to keep your lawn healthy.
What Other Services Does Lawn Pride Provide?
In addition to our exceptional 7-Application Lawn Care in Indianapolis, we provide many other top-tier services to ensure your lawn receives all the treatments it needs for healthy, gorgeous growth.
- Aeration & Overseeding
With aeration and overseeding, we puncture holes in the soil and spread grass seed over the existing lawn. Our fall aeration service loosens the soil for successful seed planting so that the roots grow deeper and can more readily receive the nutrients, moisture, and oxygen necessary for a stronger, lusher lawn.
- Grub Control
By feasting on grass roots and the essential nutrients in your soil, grubs starve your lawn, leaving it sparse, limp, yellowing, and vulnerable to infection by fungi and pathogens. We eliminate the grubs that devour your grass roots and suck the nutrients from your soil.
We treat your lawn for fungal growth and diseases that can leave yellow or brown patches throughout your grass. Our specialists will determine the type of fungus infecting your lawn and use the fungicides that are most effective at attacking them.
- Pest Control
We control the pests that hide within your lawn to bite unsuspecting visitors. Our pest control even extends to gophers, moles, and voles that burrow into your lawn, leaving soil mounds and trails of browned, dead grass behind them.
- Perimeter Pest Control
We also offer perimeter pest control to eliminate pests that are hanging out outside your house before they are able to invade your home.
Can your lawn care service permanently eliminate weeds?
No lawn care service can eliminate weeds permanently. Weeds are vigorous plants that strive to live and reproduce. However, if you are experiencing more weeds between lawn care visits than usual, adjusting your mowing can make a big difference.
If you keep your lawn too short, it encourages weeds to thrive. For lawn care in Indianapolis, we recommend cutting your grass to 3.5 inches. The taller your grass grows, the better it can out-compete the weeds in your lawn.
Another concern with weed breakthrough is the change of seasons. Your Lawn Pride service professional can advise you on seasonal weed control.
What lawn care recommendations do you have if my grass is not suitable to flourish in my region?
If your lawn is struggling, we would first consider local environmental issues. For instance, if the sparse grass in the shade is cast by a tree, it may be beneficial to prune back the canopy to allow more sunlight to come through. In the event of a drainage problem, our lawn service would focus on correcting the irrigation, deflecting the water, or installing a better watering system.
If the grass variety is not suited to your climate, replacing it with a more compatible grass strain or introducing a suitable seed to the existing lawn could result in the lush growth you’re looking for. Another possible solution is to landscape around the area where the grass fails to thrive.
Our lawn care service in Indianapolis provides solutions tailored to each client’s specific needs.
