Lawn Services

Lawngevity Landscape & Design offers an array of services to ensure that your lawn is the greenest on the block.  Distributed throughout the growing season, we promote healthy lawns with both preventative measures and individualized services throughout the warmer months as well as on an as-needed basis.

  • Thatching: Performed in the spring, thatching removes a layer of above-ground roots and stems that can prevent air and nutrients from reaching the soil in lawn areas

  • Aeration: Performed in the fall, aeration removes plugs of soil from the lawn, providing air to the roots and helping them reach deeper into the soil to mitigate the stress of the spring thaw and summer heat

  • Seeding: We will select the best seed for your conditions and expertly spread it with our professional equipment

  • Revitilization: In some situations, a lawn may need a fresh start.  When necessary, JLS can remove the damaged lawn and either seed or install sod to give you a healthy, weed-free lawn


  • Sod: We offer a “turn-key” sod installation process from start to finish including all the necessary ground preparation, topsoil, grading, and installation of Tall Fescue/Kentucky Bluegrass sod.

Maintenance/Lawn care

Q. What is the best day to have my property maintained?
The best days to have your property maintained are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays for homeowners (Monday for corporate clients). Why Wednesday? Well, except for approximately 6-8 weeks in the Spring when turf is at its peak growth, there is very little difference in cut appearance come the weekend.

Q. Do you catch or recycle the clippings?
Wherever and whenever we can we recycle the clippings back to the turf as grass blades, and leaves being 80% water and nutrients, are the very best compost for building long-term highly organic soil. We only catch when an area is too small or we may get too many clippings in gardens. If we choose not to catch your grass clippings, be assured even if we have to do a double cut based on a 7-day mowing cycle, there will be no extra charge to you, and you will always have a high quality appearance.

Q. I have to have my property cut on Friday. Can you accommodate me?
We base the scheduling of our clients on the following: Open availability for existing or new route: Route density and efficiency: With the price of fuel and labor, we route just like UPS and Federal Express.  If you must have Friday, there will be an added cost if it does not fit our existing route, just as next day air will cost you extra with UPS.

Q. I’m having an event or party, can you pay special attention at my property?
Please let us know 7-10 days ahead and we will provide weekly service the day before your party. With 14 days notification we can also provide a detail crew service, mulch, pruning and seasonal color so that your property will look its best before your big day!

Q. How much water does my lawn need in the summer?
Cool season turf, which is the dominant turf grass in Northern New Jersey, requires approximately 1" of water from your sprinkler, irrigation system or Mother Nature or a combination per week.

Q. What size mowers do you use?
The size of the mower used is based on the size of each given area of lawn. A good landscape company will have many different size mowers with deck sizes from 21" to 52" or larger. The right machine is as important as the qualifications of its operators.

Q. At what height do you cut the lawn?
From late April to late November we use a 3" mowing height. This is when your lawn is most actively growing. It is also in the recommended range of height of cut by Rutgers University, one of the world’s leading turf research Universities in the world. During early Spring and late Fall we will lower the height of cut to 2.5 to 2.75.

Q. Why is mowing at the right height and alternating patterns of cut so important?
The right height will cause less damage to the blade of grass so the plant is under less stress. This in turn will allow for better vigor which in itself will help shade, fend off weeds and protect against insect damage.

Q. How often do you sharpen your mower blades?
We sharpen our blades on average about every 12 to 15 working hours, so about ever 8-10 mowing hours 3 to 4 times per week.

Q. Do you provide shrub pruning?
Yes, we do.  Full time clients can sign up with their yearly agreement or by mail. Full-service clients get first availability.

Q. Do you provide commercial grounds maintenance service?
Yes, we do we service small to large retail store locations, condominium complexes, and commercial warehouses. First impressions are just that, and how your business looks from the street can speak volumes about your image.

Q. What types of maintenance plans do you offer?
We provide many types of maintenance plans depending n the customers need and budget.  Please call for a customized plan.

Q. Do you provide seasonal color?
Yes. We provide spring bulbs, summer annuals, fall mums and more.

Q. How can a well-landscaped home help to sell my home?
According to appraisers and realtors, a beautifully landscaped home will sell fast and for more money.

Q. How do plants and trees help?
Plants and trees absorb ozone-damaging pollutants, produce oxygen and help keep temperatures down and according to the Plants for Clean Air Council; efficient landscaping can reduce heating and cooling costs by up to 20%.

Q. How is a lawn helpful to the environment?
A turf area 50' x 50' can absorb enough carbon dioxide and hydrogen fluoride and convert it into enough oxygen to support a family of four

Q. How much will it cost me to hire your company?
This all depends on the services you desire. We are a legitimate year round company with well trained and fully insured employees. We use a multiple, overhead, recovery system to disperse and recover our overhead, labor and equipment costs, plus add fair professional profit. To find out more, give us a call.

Q. What type of training do your employees receive?
All employees go through a full day of orientation at least once yearly. We also perform tailgate training and have safety talks throughout the year.

Q. When and how should my shrubs be pruned?
The following is a basic guideline for pruning. When present, damaged or diseased shrub-limbs and branches should be removed. Most flowering shrubs and ornamental trees, should be pruned after blooming and before the next year's buds set. Prune whenever possible for plant health and to keep the natural shape of the plant. Some ornamentals and vines require dormant pruning in late winter. We highly recommend hand pruning over shearing.

Q. Why should I have mulch on my property?
Mulch provides the following benefits for planting when done correctly: For shrubs and ornamental trees, a mulch base of 3"-4" is recommended. It helps to keep weeds in check, retains moisture in the soil and adds organic matter to the soil as it decays. Woody, ornamental and evergreen trees do not need or want their soil cultivated around their roots.

Q. How about mulching annuals or perennials?
Mulch should be limited to 1"-2". Ideally a mulch compost mix would be a better choice. Unlike ornamentals, annuals and perennials like loose, tillable soil, so too much is not good.

Q. What type of mulch do you sell and install and what is the cost?
We sell Triple shredded root brown mulch, black and red dyed mulch, Cedar mulch, Canada Hemlock mulch, Playground mulch and more!  Pricing is based on site conditions and quantity. Bed preparation is extra.
Q. What are some of the most import things a lawn in Central Jersey needs?
Proper mowing height should be kept at 3" with a sharp blade, adequate deep infrequent watering, core aeration once per year and 3-4 lbs. of nitrogen per year.

Q. How often should I water?
Turf grass should be watered 3/4" - 1" per week. Shrubs and trees should receive deep watering 1-2 times per week. Annual and perennials should be watered 2-3 times per week. This answer is for established landscapes.

Q. What type of program do you offer for fertilization and control of weeds?
As different people have different expectations of how they want their lawn to look and also what they want to spend, we offer a 6 application program. Please call for more information.
