Story City: Detailed Landscape Lighting, Hardscaping & Mulch

MasterGrass workers installing Landscaping in Story City IA, laying out a beautiful flowerbed with precision and care.

Though small in stature, Story City fits a lot of arts, culture, and personality into our 2.8 square miles. Full of Scandinavian culture from generations of immigrants settling here, people love our annual Scandinavian Days celebration, which includes delicious foods, beers, rides, and games.

For much of Story City’s history, we were known as Fairview. When the first post office was established in 1881 and townspeople found out that there was already a town with that name, they chose to honor former Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story, best known for his antislavery opinions and (today) being the only Supreme Court Justice ever to be portrayed by another justice on film (in Steven Spielberg’s Amistad).

What Can MasterGrass Do for Your Story City Yard?

Landscape Lighting

What’s one thing you can do to improve your yard’s safety, security, looks, and value? Add landscape lighting. By lighting your yard, you not only expand the time you can entertain, but you make your safer for the people there because they can see where they’re going. You also improve property value and decrease the risk of property crime by making your home a less attractive target.

Hardscaping

Many of your favorite areas of your yard aren’t grown but manufactured. So whether you want a walking path to guide you to your gardens or a retaining wall to keep them in place, a fire pit to gather around, or an outdoor living space, Mastergrass has the experience and skill to build you your dream hardscaped outdoor living space.

Lawn Care

Your lawn needs more than an occasional mow to stay healthy. Part of regular lawn care is creating those bold edges that act as a frame for your yard while preventing it from expanding into your driveway. Likewise, we trim after a mow to complete all the detailed work and finish with a good blowout to ensure you don’t have ugly grass clippings marring the appearance of your Story City home.

Mulch

Just because your mulch isn’t alive doesn’t mean it’s not a vital piece of your landscaping puzzle. Not only does the contrast of your mulch help your plants stand out and look better, but it provides those same plants with many valuable benefits. Mulch acts as an insulator and weed barrier. It also ensures your plants retain water and, as it breaks down, becomes food for your plants.

Seasonal Cleanup

Everyone knows that fall brings a lot of leaves that need removal. But the other seasons come with their own cleanup needs. So before each new season starts, you should call Master Grass to clean up the plant debris and remove plants that have died to make room for the new life each season brings. It also keeps your yard looking neat and clean!

Tree Trimming

Towering above the rest of your yard and looking as strong and majestic as they are large are your trees. But as strong as your trees are, they still need a little help from you and MasterGrass to stay healthy. Regularly trimming keeps your trees healthy by stimulating growth. Pruning is also vital to a tree’s health since it removes the unhealthy parts.
