    Our many 5-star reviews are your quality assurance

    Classy grass is honestly ran… upfront and honest about pricing, customer minded, and quick to get the job done. They’re first responder owned, takes the best care of their employees (this matters to me), supports local like no other business I’ve seen… and with all that… does an even better job for their clients. My yard is impeccable, I couldn’t do it better if I tried.
    I can not recommend them enough!

    Thank you so much for doing such a great job on my yard. Your company also had great communication and had the job done the next day after taking a look at it for the bid. I really appreciate you guys!

    Becky L.

    You and your crew came through for me in cleaning up a section of my yard that was a mess.  Then you put down new sod, which now looks great.  Your lawnmowing team did a great job for me all year AND your wife was so helpful in keeping the weeds in check. I trust your company implicitly. Thank you!

    We highly recommend Cody and his snow removal! He is very dependable and is always planning ahead with salting and plowing before our patients arrive. He often works through the night to make sure each of his customers’ lots are handled.  We are always grateful to arrive at work to find he had already been there!

    Frequently Asked Questions

    No matter if you live in Decatur or the region, professional lawn maintenance services offer plenty of benefits, including:

    • Expertise: Lawn care experts understand your lawn’s unique needs, promoting its health.
    • Time savings: Outsourcing grass cutting and other types of lawn maintenance frees up your time without sacrificing quality.
    • Quality products: Professionals have access to effective products for lush lawns.
    • Consistency: Regular lawn maintenance ensures year-round beauty.
    • Personalized approach: Tailored treatments address specific lawn challenges.
    • Property value: A well-maintained lawn enhances property value.
    • Environmental benefits: The finest industry practices and advanced methods reduce chemical usage and promote soil health.

    Lawn cutting frequency depends on factors such as the type of grass and the weather conditions. Once a week is usually enough for grass cutting, especially for fast-growing grasses. However, slower-growing grass requires mowing every 10 days. If you have any questions or need further information, don’t hesitate to give us a call!

    Regular lawn maintenance, proper fertilization, and targeted treatments are your best defense against weeds and pests. Without them, you risk creating a haven for destructive insects like fire ants that can wreak havoc on your lawn and other types of landscaping in Decatur.

    While spring is a popular choice for lawn maintenance and landscaping projects, don’t underestimate what fall has to offer, especially for tree, shrub, and grass plantings. During this period, you get to enjoy warm days, cool evenings, and increased rainfall, which create ideal conditions for these plants to thrive.

    With fall plantings, you’ll have a generous window of six to eight months for their roots to establish themselves before the warmer months roll in. Plus, you’ll deal with fewer weeds, and the soil stays pleasantly warm. On the other hand, if you’re planning to grow perennial and annual flowers, spring is the season to look forward to for their best results.

    To winterize your lawn effectively, follow these steps:

    • Start with lawn aeration to improve soil compaction and promote deep root growth
    • Apply a winter-specific fertilizer late in the fall to strengthen roots
    • Regularly remove fallen leaves to prevent smothering and other issues
    • Ensure proper drainage to avoid waterlogged soil, which can harm grassroots

    However, depending on your lawn’s size and specific needs, professional lawn care and maintenance might be needed during the coldest months.

    While many weed killer products recommend staying off sprayed lawns for just 6 to 24 hours, it’s important to be aware that chemical residues can persist on surfaces for up to 48 hours after application. So, it’s wise to exercise caution and wait a bit longer before letting your furry friends roam freely on the treated lawn.

    However, removing weeds before they have a chance to spread seeds is the most effective approach. Feel free to contact us and count on us to use only the best products for our lawn care and maintenance services in Decatur and nearby areas.

    As a family-owned business with a tradition of caring, Classy Grass is committed to exceeding customer expectations. Our full lawn maintenance in Decatur, Mt.
