Because Life Is Better On Your Lawn
Why should I choose Higher Ground Lawn Care & Lighting?
Organic Hybrid Annual Lawn Program
Round 1: Winter Application - January/February
Application of spring pre-emergent to prevent spring/summer annual weeds, post-emergent for existing weeds, and potassium to feed roots for breaking dormancy preparing for spring green-up.
Round 2: Spring Application - March/April
Application of slow-release nitrogen organic fertilizer, released by temperature, not moisture, for sustained, environmentally ethical feeding of the turf all season long. Spot treatment weed control as needed. Apply annual fire ant control if added to the annual plan. ***Preventative Fungicide applications for St. Augustine lawns.
Round 3: Late Spring Application - May/June
Application of our 2nd pre-emergent treatment blended with liquid organic fertilizer consisting of liquid humates, seaweed kelp extracts, chelated iron, microbial metabolites, and a low supplemental amount of conventional liquid nitrogen for rapid green-up along with spot treatment weed control as needed. Preventative treatment for grub worms if added to the plan.
Round 4: Summer Application - Mid-June/July
Application of liquid organic fertilizer, iron plus a conventional liquid organic fertilizer with several micro nutrients along with spot treatment weed control as needed. Inspect for lawn pests such as chinch bugs, grub worms and fire ants (treatment quoted separately, if needed).
Round 5: Late Summer - July/mid-August
Peak of summer heat, no fertilizers going down to mitigate abiotic heat stress and potential fertilizer turf burn injury. Only weed control applications.
Round 6: Fall Application - September/October
Application of winter pre-emergent to prevent winter annual weeds, liquid potassium to relieve heat stress coming out of summer and enhance winter root development with carbohydrates, liquid iron to hold green color without pushing more top growth via subsequent nitrogen application. All this sets up turfgrass and roots for quick and healthy spring growth. Spot treat weeds as needed. ***Preventative Fungicide applications for St. Augustine lawns.

Special Lawn Care Services
A weed is any plant somewhere you don’t want it to be. We use pre-emergents and post-emergents to control your broadleaf and grassy weeds. The best defense is a strong, dense and vibrant turf grass due to maintaining healthy soil biology. We take special care to examine your soil, assess your lawn and ensure we’re applying the proper treatment to make your yard healthy and green again. And for those extra tough weeds, we use selective herbicides to target these without harming your primary turfgrass.
From fire ants, grubs to mites, ticks, fleas and more, we help your lawn defend against these common pests and stop them from causing trouble in your outdoor space.
Our team is experienced in understanding how to safely deal with common pests you come across on your lawn.
Landscaped Bed & Ornamentals Plan
For your shrubs and smaller ornamental trees, we offer foliar feeding and systemic pesticide applications. We apply this three times per year.
Liquid applications that are curative and preventative to prevent turf fungus, the disease that can eat away at the roots and foliage. This treatment controls Brown Patches, Fairy Rings, Grey Leaf Spots, Rust, Root Rot and more.
Monthly All-Natural Mosquito Services
Our product is an all-natural product controlling crawling and flying insects made up of Rosemary, Geraniol and Peppermint oils. It means it is a very safe insecticide for use around your family and pets, but still very effective. One of the best features is that it has no aquatic toxicity. We can apply near or over water for spiders, mosquitoes and other water-dwelling pests with no worries about harming aquatic life. It targets aphids, ants, bees, boxelder bugs, centipedes, cockroaches, crickets, darkling beetles, firebrats, fleas, ground beetles, fowl mites, mites, millipedes, mosquitos, pillbugs, silverfish, sowbugs, spiders, ticks and wasps and many others. We offer quarterly perimeter general pest control services.
Organic Concentrated Granular Compost Topdressing/Soil Amendment
Tremendous soil improver and plant nutritional booster. Excellent for reducing plant water use and is used extensively on turfgrass areas. It can be used as a organic fertilizer too. Inexpensive and easy to spread compared to organic compost topdressing services. It is an amazing soil conditioner and greens plants quickly. Loosens clay soils better than gypsum and is cheaper to use. It is also used to revitalize beds. You will also find a big reduction in annual weed problems.

Helping Your Property Shine!
Landscape & Architectural Lighting
At Higher Ground, we devote significant time and resources to learn and develop lighting techniques using products that will create truly breathtaking designs for your home. Our training by Nite Time Decor teaches us the concept of a “lighting portrait”, where the lighting designer will use the characteristics of each property to create a unique look, using varying levels of light, and properly-placed lighting fixtures. You will be amazed how beautiful your home looks in the darkness and using smart lighting, you will be able to control the lights from the comfort of your sofa.
Christmas Lighting & Decor
There is nothing like beautiful sparkling lights in the holiday season. But we understand that putting up the Christmas lights takes a lot of time and effort — and not necessarily time you have during such a busy season when you want to spend it with those that matter most.
Let us help bring the cheer this Holiday season! From your personal home, local church, apartment complex and more, we will help your property sparkle. We only use commercial outdoor grade LED technology with a host of color options for both residential and commercial properties in and around Grand Prairie. Tap on one of the buttons below to see how we can help you today or click here to learn more about our holiday lighting service!
This is sometimes known as Bistro Lighting. This kind of lighting provides lighting over your patio or your outdoor living area so that you can enjoy your backyard after the sun goes down. In addition, we also provide a smart custom color changing Patio Lighting option for that special event that integrates and is controlled using our Decor Smart app platform.
Smart Permanent Lighting
We use PermaLites 365 to provide you with a custom lighting solution that you can control anywhere - anytime. It is almost invisible during the day, uses around 1/3 of the power that current LED C9's use, while being brighter at the same time. Using the Decor Smart app via bluetooth or remotely via a wifi gateway, you can create your own lighting event with Permalites for any and all Holidays or parties year around. This system has individual addressable smart diodes that can create cool color effects for any occasion. Just think of it, no more having to DIY or hire a lighting contractor year after year for your Holiday Lights either and you can change colors anytime you want or keep it classy with just warm white! This is just one product of many of our color changing lighting solutions that integrate and can be controlled on the Decor Smart platform.

Life’s Better Outside!
Well you guessed it, Higher Ground was born in response to that very question. I have always wanted my own business and I love the outdoors. It seemed to be a natural fit not to mention all the fond memories as a child I have playing barefoot on my grandfather’s cool lush grass under a big oak tree.
However, I wanted to be different from the run of the mill lawn care company out there. As a Christian, I wanted this to be a purpose driven business with a higher calling:
- To be environmentally ethical, encouraging organic methods as much as possible keeping our pets and children safe.
- Making a lasting impact by fighting injustice where we live.
Our Scripture: The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever. Isaiah 40:8
