We started using Left Side this year. We have used a number of different companies in the Cedar Valley to do our lawn care, and we have tried to do it ourselves. We have dogs, and board dogs so to say that our yard takes a lot of abuse is an understatement. Within one year of working with Caleb, our lawn is looking the best it ever has. Caleb takes the time to listen to what your issues and needs are and works to find solutions to meet those needs. He has cutting edge equipment that no else around has. You will not be disappointed if you choose to work with Left Side Lawn Care.

I started using Left Side Lawn Care last year after years of not being able to get my lawn under control on my own. I couldn't believe how much progress there were able to make in such a short time! Thank you!!

I started using Caleb in 2020 simply because I was tired of "doing my own" weed and pest control. By the end of the first summer my lawn looked better than I was EVER able to get it!! The lack of creeping charlie being the most noticeable difference! I love that he is super knowledgeable and sensitive to being good stewards of the earth. I highly recommend his services!!

We started using Left Side just over 2 years ago because our lawn was thin, had dead spots and tons of weeds. Caleb had loads of knowledge and information to share, but I didn't know what half of it meant so I just told him to do his thing. In just the first year we noticed how few weeds we had and our grass was growing in twice as thick. Last year our lawn was put to the test because of no rain and it held up better than anyone we knew! We receive compliments from every visitor we have and I honestly couldn't be happier with how perfect it looks. There's no question Caleb will be the only one taking care of our lawn for years and years to come.

We were new to the Cedar Valley area and hired Left Side Lawn Care to do their 6 step application for our lawn after we bought our house. We have been extremely happy so far with all of the treatments as well as the customer service provided by the company. You can tell the owner is truly passionate about lawn maintenance and he provides an excellent service at an exceptional cost. I highly recommend going with them for any current or future lawn care services!

We contacted LSLC this Spring to see how much it would cost to control our creeping charlie issue. In Summer's past, the creeping charlie has taken over about 75% of our backyard and we just wanted lush green grass to walk in. Caleb responded right away to my email and was out that same week to look over our yard and talk about pricing and programs to treat it. I appreciate his communication letting us know when he will be out next and payment is easy. Our yard has never looked better since Caleb has treated it and given us tips on what we can do as homeowners to help our grass grow! The creeping charlie is practically gone!! Highly recommend his services and feel that he offers his services at a great price as well! I am so happy we reached out to him!

More About Caleb

Having farmed all of my life, I believe where lawn care problems and solutions both evolve begin right beneath us in our soils. My mentality has always been one that thinks about generational sustainability to come, and our WHY. I have spent over 15 years perfecting my craft; I am an artisan, and each lawn is a blank canvas.

A strong premise on applying organic fertilizers, beneficial bacteria, amino acids, and soil amendments help create an innovative plan for a sustainable environment for turf to grow. A soil driven approach utilizes organics compounds necessary to increase the organic matter that synthetic fertilizers have taken away of from years of use. Organic chicken litter, beneficial bacterias, amino acids, humic acid, fulvic acid, micro nutrients, and other natural ingredients found within our soils such as calcium to chelate nutrients for uptake and utilization for grass to grow, thicken, smother weeds, and create a natural immunity for turf to fight against brown patch, summer patch, and dollar spot lawn fungus found too often in Iowa lawns.

Turf offers so much more than just merely aesthetics; it creates oxygen for our bodies to breathe, a ground temperature “cooling effect” in hot weather, and a natural process of water filtration from rain that enters the water table. Pictures are worth a thousand words, so when you are ready to paint your canvas, call Caleb at Left Side Lawn Care to discuss a lawn care fertilizer and weed control plan that fits you, your family, and loved ones (including pet friendly alternatives)!

We are called to be stewards of our environment, and I believe it starts here. Lets keep creating excellence in the ordinary!
