Home Landscape Maintenance Services for Year Round Beauty
Your lawn and landscaping require regular care to keep them healthy and pleasing to the eye. We provide that care on a dependable basis.
Before we begin your mowing schedule, we’ll clear away all leaves and debris left over from the winter months, leaving your grounds ready for expert care and unhindered growth.
Pruning and Trimming
We’ll keep your trees and shrubs in shape! They’ll have an orderly look and improved health as we trim back growth to exactly the right size.
Landscape Weed Control
Weeds will be removed from any landscape features, and they'll be more often prevented from growing in the first place. We can even deliver aquatic weed control, controlling pests such as Japanese Beetles.
Total Lawn Care
We’ll develop a custom plan with the care that fits your lawn’s needs, with the mix of fertilization, aeration, pest and weed control that helps it stay at peak health. Mulching, dethatching, and other beautification services are also available. Find out more about these services on our Commercial Applications page.
Clean, Precision Mowing & Trimming
Every blade cut, every edge trimmed, every line straight. Your grounds will have straight lines, and all areas will be thoroughly string trimmed. Plus, we’ll clean every surface before we’re done, so no clippings are left behind.
As the leaves start coming down, we can easily add raking, pruning, and other cleanup to your schedule, keeping your grounds looking sharp all through autumn.
Expect the Best from Sparrow
Instead of putting more aggravating items on your lengthy to-do list, leave the maintenance to us and spend your time with family or just relaxing. We’ll make it look orderly and attractive leaving your property clean when we’re done.

Hear It from Our Customers
“When I bought my house, the yard was something of a wreck. I knew it would need a zone by zone approach and some professional attention. Sparrow helped my lawn and landscaping look great! Everyone on their crews is reliable and highly knowledgeable, and their work is worth every penny.”Lynn J.
“After I was diagnosed with cancer, I was focused on my treatment. As a result, my yard was largely neglected for two years. I called on Sparrow for the help I needed, and they delivered! They maintain my colorful landscaping, have planted and cared for trees, and also take care of my lawn. I have found them to be considerate and attentive to every detail on the property. They reliably stick to their schedule, but when treatment has made it difficult for me to be home, they’ve gladly adjusted. I can enjoy looking at my property, but all the credit goes to them. The Sparrow team is amazing and awesome, and I recommend them highly!”Nancy Jessen
“I was Sparrow’s first customer, because I had seen the work their founder, Mark, did before he started the business, and could tell he was dedicated to high quality and the best possible customer service. I had them build a brick patio at the back of my home. They did a magnificent job and it still looks great.Larry Hughes
I later had them design and build a berm in the yard of my next house, with a block border, ornamental bushes and flowers. They helped me solve an erosion problem on the property, removing stone and railroad ties and replacing them with healthy new sod. I’ve also counted on them for tree removal and to build a brick walkway. I can’t say enough good things about Mark and his crew and I highly recommend them for any work you need done at your home or business.”
“The Sparrow team did a great job building beautiful retaining walls and large flower beds for my home. They also perform monthly maintenance on my landscaping.Shelly
My yard is rather large, and often I would come back from traveling and find my home looking like a disaster. I’d feel overwhelmed at all the work that had to be done. Since I’ve had Sparrow handle the maintenance, my home looks amazing and I have total peace of mind about my yard. The Sparrow team always does a great job, and they always ask if there’s more they can do. Do yourself a favor, and call them today!”
“I count on Sparrow to advise me on the health of my lawn and to handle my lawn applications. They apply fertilizer, aerate and overseed it as needed. When I first called them, I had brown patches, which they quickly identified as being the result of fungus growth, ironically from overfertilization. They not only developed a plan to get rid of the patches, but the whole lawn looks significantly better, much healthier and greener.Dovie Anderson
The Sparrow team is personable, easy to work with and tailors their approach to my needs. They account for the amount of work I want to do myself, and always do a great job.”
“We rely on Sparrow for a number of services on our property. They built a patio for us at our previous home, and planted beautiful perennials. When we moved to our new home, they did a fine job building a new stoop and brick walkway for our back door. They planted trees for us and keep our yard looking great with lawn and landscape maintenance and weed removal. My husband John uses Sparrow for snow removal at his business and has been very satisfied.Emily Hartman
The Sparrow team is friendly, professional, timely, never leaves anything unfinished (even temporarily), and stand by their work 100%.”
“I’ve worked with Sparrow as a homeowner and as the Executive Director of Youth Development at the Family YMCA of Northwest Illinois. They did a great job beautifying my property after we put on an addition and added a pool, and they helped us with leveling and new rock when we replaced our shed. I have them work on my property at least every other year, beautifying it, removing shrubs and laying down new mulch.Stephanie Diehl
Speaking of mulch, I always had a difficult time finding someone who could handle the mulch on our playgrounds at the YMCA. We need mulch that’s properly screened so there’s no debris in it that might hurt the children, and some landscapers aren’t willing to seek it out. Mark and the Sparrow team not only get us the right mulch, they get it spread on the playgrounds so quickly and efficiently that the kids don’t miss a moment of play.
I highly recommend Sparrow, and I wouldn’t go anywhere else!”
“I was an early Sparrow customer and have been sold on them ever since. Their first job for me was replacing my concrete front steps with brick, and they did an excellent job. When we added onto our house, they worked closely with our building contractor, gave us a wonderful front patio, and redid all the hardscaping in the backyard.Today, I rely on Sparrow for all my mowing, landscape planting, and maintenance. Everyone on their team is knowledgeable, personable, and just plain nice. They’re even good to my dogs! I recommend them highly for your lawn and landscape needs.”Marilyn Smit
