Your Lawn Care & Lighting Specialists

At Higher Ground, we take an organic, wholistic and balanced, common-sense approach on our lawns and a well-thought-out design/build process with our lighting offerings.

Our turf, ornamental, and lawn pest services focus on improving soil biology by using top-of-the-line, time-tested Organic granular and liquid foliar fertilizers. We feed existing soil microbes and add more by using Humates, Yucca, Seaweed Kelp, Molasses, Compost Tea, Hydrolyzed Fish for organic N-P-K, Amino Acids, Vitamins, Bio-Inoculants, Root Stimulants, Trace and Rock minerals, Beneficial Bacteria/Fungi/Mycorrhizal strains and even Bat Guano (poop) plus much more. All this revives and improves our living soils to feed our turf and ornamentals as nature intended vs. bypassing that process with synthetic salt and petrol-based fertilizers, which deprive and deplete soil plus locking up nature's best offerings, causing ongoing and worsening weed, disease, and pest issues.

Our Lighting service offers many forms of Outdoor Lighting options using the most up-to-date leading-edge technology for a smart app, BlueTooth, and wifi-controlled color-changing lighting in the forms of Landscape & Architectural, Bistro/Cafe and Holiday Lighting & Decor. We never go cheap on materials or cut corners and employ the best teams to get the job done right.

We aim to provide old Fashioned 5-star service and responsive communication along with a great host of high-quality products that deliver results, period. If we fail to meet that standard or make a mistake, we make it right! You can take a look to see what our customers are saying about us here from our verified customer reviews.

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

Special Lawn Care Services

Outside of our annual program, we also provide a range of other special services to care for your lawn.

Weed Control

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.

Pest Control

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.

Higher Ground Lawn Care & Lighting family

Life’s Better Outside!

Hey there! Thank you for visiting us here at Higher Ground Lawn Care & Lighting. My name is JP and I’m the owner around here. My wife and I started this company on the side of my full time job as a way to save more money. Little did we know that my job would be eliminated very soon presenting me the question: Do I go get another job and build someone else’s business or start my own?

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:
  1. ​To be environmentally ethical, encouraging organic methods as much as possible keeping our pets and children safe.
  2. Making a lasting impact by fighting injustice where we live.
We want to serve our customer’s properties as if they were our very own, promoting beautiful outdoor spaces encouraging family and friends to spend more time together outdoors, while glorifying the Lord who made it all.

Our Scripture: The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever. Isaiah 40:8​
