There are a lot more aspects to lawn care than just fertilization and weed control. That’s why at Showcase Lawn Works we go above and beyond the competition to give our clients much more than traditional lawn care services. As a locally-owned business, we want to help you turn your landscape into what you’ve always imagined it could be, a showcase yard. To accomplish this, we offer our customers custom landscape designs so they can achieve their landscaping goals.
Our menu of landscaping services includes:
Cleaning up your yard in the spring and fall can be a real chore. In order to help everyone in our community, we offer seasonal cleanup to give our clients a hand with their leaves, sticks, grass clippings, and other seasonal lawn debris.
Pruning is an essential step in proper tree and shrub care. Without it, trees and shrubs can become overgrown and untamed. This can make your landscape look sloppy and unkempt. Pruning not only makes your ornamentals easy on the eyes, but it also benefits the plants by redirecting nutrients to other parts of the tree, giving it that extra boost of health.
Mulching adds another layer of beauty to your landscape, but it also has numerous advantages for your plants and gardens. At Showcase, we use mulch made from organic materials such as manure, leaves, and other compostable materials. Some advantages of mulching are:
- Mulch retains moisture so you don’t have to water as often.
- Organic mulches also double as fertilizers
- Mulching acts like a blanket for your plants in the winter.
Whether you are designing a new yard lawn from scratch or just want to fix a specific area of your lawn, we offer sod installation and seeding programs to help you get the lawn you want. An effective way to repair thin or dead areas is through our slit-seeding technique which inserts seeds directly into the dirt where it has a greater chance of germinating while also being protected from the wind and foraging animals.
At Showcase, we use state-of-the-art slit-seeding equipment for fast, effective results. Combine with our overseeding program to make your lawn thicker and more resistant to pests, weeds, and diseases.
Our landscape design service is perfect for the creative homeowner that has a vision for their landscape but can’t execute it. After we meet with you and carefully go over all the details of what you want to accomplish, we will get to work planting trees, shrubs, edging, or building a patio.
For construction or any other specific designs please call us for more information.
We get a lot of snow in Pennsylvania and it’s not always easy to remove it ourselves. If you don’t have someone to do it for you, you could become a prisoner in your own home. When the cold months return, call Showcase Lawn Works and get set up with a snow removal program so you don’t ever have to worry about shoveling or plowing again.
As a finishing touch to our variety of lawn care services we also offer traditional lawn mowing. More and more people are choosing to relax this summer by letting someone else do the work for them. This saves on gas and lawn mower maintenance. When you get on our lawn mowing schedule you can expect to see us promptly each week to receive a professionally mowed lawn in any pattern you desire.

When it comes to lawn care, we strive to use the latest and greatest products that are both beneficial to the environment and your wallet.
Aeration and overseeding are fast and effective methods of restoring or establishing new lawns. Aeration helps reduce soil compaction and thatch buildup so your grass can get oxygen, water, and nutrients to its roots. You can combine with our overseeding program to bolster the strength of your grass to be hardier against, pests, diseases, and weeds.
Here in Southeast Pennsylvania, our soil tends to lean towards the acidic side. Most types of grass grow best in soil with a pH balance around 7. When pH falls below 5 it can greatly reduce the growth of your grass. At Showcase, our lawn technicians will test your soil pH to determine the amount of lime and the number of applications needed to properly balance your pH to bring your soil acidity levels to the proper range of 7.
Grubs are the number one culprit for lawn damage in Pennsylvania. These insects live under the soil and feed on the roots of your grass, causing it to brown and die. That’s not the only issue with grubs. They are also a staple food for moles, raccoons, skunks, and birds who won’t hesitate to rip up your turf to get at these tasty worms. For our area, late June and July is the ideal time to treat your lawn to prevent grubs. At Showcase, we have years of experience battling grubs with our granular grub killer and preventative applications. Contact us today to speak with a lawn care technician to discuss a program that will eliminate grubs and prevent further damage to your lawn.
Mosquito, Flea & Tick Control
Are you tired of battling mosquitoes, fleas, and ticks in the summer? It can seem like a never-ending battle but with our special treatment program, we can eliminate the threat of these annoying insects with an outdoor perimeter spray that will kill the bugs on contact. For best results, our lawn technicians will make 4 visits throughout the spring, summer, and fall to ensure your yard is safe from these invasive insects.
