Des Plaines Lawn Care
Are you looking for the finest lawn care in Des Plaines? Emerald Lawn Care is a local, family-owned company servicing the northwest suburbs of Chicago since 2002. We are results-focused, and our goal is to get you the best possible lawn in an environmentally responsible manner. The way we accomplish this is through education. There is nobody in Des Plaines as focused on lawn care education as Emerald Lawn Care.
Des Plaines Lawn Care Education
It is probably no surprise that the weather and soil quality will likely have the largest impact on the quality of your lawn. Following that, YOU will probably have the greatest impact on the health of the turf. How can that be? The answer is good lawn care practices, but how do you learn these? As part of our service, we advise you how to maintain your lawn properly to maximize its health and appearance.
All Emerald employees attend both local and national lawn care education events, we encourage our employees to get their industry certification form the most highly regarded certification program in the country, we are active members of several lawn care associations, and all field employees are licensed by the state of Illinois to apply pesticides. And we share everything that we learn with you! So what can you do to improve the quality of your lawn?
Good Des Plaines Lawn Care Practices
When caring for lawns in Des Plaines, or any area with cool season grasses such as Kentucky Blue Grass or fine fescue, the following practices will ensure the best possible lawn:
1) Cutting height – 3 1/2 inches or higher! The taller the cut, the healthier the lawn. There is a one-to-one relationship between the height of the grass and the depth of the roots – the higher you cut, the deeper the roots.
2) Don’t remove more than 1/3rd of the grass in a single cut. It will shock the plant and slow its growth.
3) Mulch your clippings. You will conserve nutrients, reduce thatch, and save time and money in the process. You will have a greener lawn using less fertilizer, since mulching promotes natural biological activity due to the increased organic matter, and you don’t need to bother with bagging your clippings, saving you time, money, and aggravation.
4) Water 1 1/4” every week. Mother Nature will help you with this in April, May, and usually June, but in July and August she needs a little help. Watering during the hot months will keep your lawn healthy and green. Be sure to water only in the morning if possible. Watering after 5pm will promote disease development.
5) Keep your blade sharp! A sharp blade helps keep your lawn from drying out and makes it more disease resistant.
6) Aerate in the fall to reduce compaction and thatch. Emerald Lawn Care provides this service if you don’t want to do it.
These are all things you can do to dramatically improve your lawn, and this is before we have even talked about Emerald Lawn Care’s fertilization and weed control program! The last piece of the puzzle is to call Emerald Lawn Care for the best lawn care service in Des Plaines!

“I chose this company because of the positive Yelp reviews and competitive pricing, and I haven’t been disappointed. The weeds in our lawn disappeared within a couple of weeks of the first application. The lawn became much less patchy and the grass softer, even in our shady back yard. I noticed some weeds here and there this week, and literally had it on my “to do” list to call today and ask them to come for a touch up. They beat me to it. They came and sprayed today, and left a note to say they’d done a complimentary application because they had noticed some returning weeds. Wow!”
