Our Naperville Residential Lawn Maintenance Services

Spring clean-up

To keep your lawn looking great, it’s important to take care of it all year round. At winter’s end, we offer full-service clean-ups as part of our yard maintenance services. We clean up and blow out all the beds and lawn areas, edge out all of the flowerbeds, trim back plants and get everything looking nice for the beginning of the season. We also encourage our customers to add on some perennial bed clearing and shrub pruning as this is the ideal time of year to clear out debris and make way for new growth. Every property is unique in its requirements for spring clean-ups and we will tailor a plan that best suits your specific property. We offer not only residential service but also focus on Naperville commercial lawn care.


Mid-to-late spring is the perfect mulching season. It’s when the soil warms up from the super cold temperatures it experienced all winter. Doing it too early may slow down the warming process, which the soil needs to do its job. Having the right amount of mulch is critical to the health of your landscape plantings. Mulch helps keep moisture in the ground at the roots while organically decomposing over time, depositing nutrients back into the soil. Mulch also helps prevent weeds from taking hold. We install premium hardwood mulch throughout all the flower beds, which looks beautiful (on top of all the health benefits for your soil and garden).

Weekly lawn mowing

There are several reasons to hire Ware Landscaping to mow your lawn on a weekly basis. Of course, the health of your turf is number one. Grass plants are living organisms and for them to thrive, it’s best when ⅓ or less of the grass blade is removed with every cut. This will also reduce the amount of thatch that builds up over time. Properly maintained lawns tend to have fewer weeds and of course, have a lush, full, beautiful appearance. Our weekly lawn mowing service includes clearing up seasonal debris and edging patios, driveways, and walkways.

Summer clean-ups

Lawns are natural coolants in the summertime. You may not realize this fact, but grass can be 30 degrees cooler than asphalt and 20 degrees cooler than bare soil. So summer clean-ups are one of the ways we can ensure your family gets maximal yard time this summer. This is when we trim the shrubs, weed the beds, and edge out the flowerbeds. Edging is so important because it helps prevent grass from growing into hardscapes and gardens.

Organic fertilizer program and weed control

Weed growth and inadequate soil quality will hurt the health of your flowers, plants, and trees. This is why weed control and fertilizer applications are needed to mitigate damage done by these harmful elements. And you can rest assured that the fertilizers and weed controllers we use are safe for kids and pets. Your residential lawn maintenance contract will ensure weeds stay under control and your property stays looking pristine.

Fall cleanup

One thing is for sure in the suburban Chicago area: the leaves always fall! Autumn is actually the ideal season to prepare your lawn for the chilly months ahead. Our experienced staff knows exactly what kind of TLC your yard needs now to show off its best next year. Beyond just the superficial leaf raking, we also include getting plants pruned back and ready for winter.
