GET A FREE FULL LAWN EVALUATION
We will start with a FREE full lawn service evaluation and provide you a recommended plan based on that evaluation. With your input and concerns, we then put a plan in action. You are an integral part of this plan and throughout the season, we will work together to make sure that you are satisfied and your lawn is healthier. GrassRoots Lawn Service stays on top of all the new requirements and keeps equipment well-tuned. Our technicians are constantly educated in order to meet the highest quality requirements.
Large residential and commercial mowing
We accept residential and commercial mowing customers only if their lawns are being treated either by GrassRoots Lawn Service or another licensed company. We do this so our equipment does not transfer untreated lawn problems to our current customers.
Overseeding is the spreading of seed and is typically done in conjunction with aeration. This is done for many benefits, such as allowing new grasses to replenish the older lawn and to alleviate some of the diseases and insect problems caused by hot, dry summer days.
This is the second application of the season and usually done April through May, when the dandelions start popping. It is our only liquid application. It helps control a variety of weeds such as dandelions, clover, etc. It is important to remember that any liquid application only kills the weeds it touches and weeds do emerge throughout the year. If a customer is on our basic plan, our technicians do spot spray for weeds, FREE of charge, while doing the other applications.
Mulching and edging
We do offer bed prep, edging, and mulching. Our technicians meet with customers on the job site to discuss ideas, products, and costs.
Aeration is the removal of small 2”-3” plugs in the soil/grass that will benefit the lawn by reducing water runoff and puddles, reduce soil compaction, enhance thatch breakdown, and ease drought/heat stress.
Insecticide, grub control and prevention
This application is normally done in June. It is a pelletized preventative grub application that remains on the lawn for approximately 8-10 weeks and slowly works its way into the lawn's soil to prevent grubs from taking hold.
Snow removal services
GrassRoots Lawn Service does snow removal for customers, but we only take on a limited amount so we can get to them in a timely manner. Those of you who wish to remain on this list and those who would like to be added to the list, please call us at 717-821-7701 or use our contact form so we have everything in line for the first day of snowfall!
Why is Lawn Care Important?
Having a healthy lawn is not just for good looks, it is also important for several other reasons.
Firstly, people benefit from trees, grasses, and shrubs, and lawn maintenance can make a big difference for you and your family. A quality outdoor space can be utilized to relax and enjoy your surroundings, increasing your wellbeing. Not only that, but a well kept lawn increases your property value.
Secondly, a well maintained lawn benefits the environment. Its healthy root system provides erosion and run off control and will help to purify water, making it cleaner and healthier. Not only that but your lawn can help produce more fresh oxygen, increasing your air quality as well.
Thirdly, your yard can also help keep your outdoors cooler, making it easier to maintain the temperature in your home during those hot summer months.

Winter Lawn Care Tips
When your lawn freezes throughout winter, the turf goes dormant, calling for a different kind of lawn care routine than you would normally do the rest of the year. During the winter there are cool-season weeds that will thrive if not controlled properly. If you only have a few of these types of weeds, spot-treating them would be effective. However, if your lawn has too many weeds for spot-treatment, try this simple two step winter lawn care weed elimination plan:
It is important to keep mowing your lawn through the winter to the proper height. This is because most winter weeds can not survive regular mowing so they will die off on their own. Make sure to use a bag attachment on your mower so any seed from the weeds does not spread and regrow.
Make sure you mark your calendar for the following September to remind yourself to apply a pre-emergent herbicide. This will eliminate the recurrence of winter weeds next year.
