Lawn Care

EcoScapes eco-friendly lawn care solutions help create the beautiful outdoor space you love with healthy soil and grass roots for yards you can enjoy all season.


Lawn Care Services we offer to commercial and residential clients in Gretna include:


Our Gretna Lawn Care Program


We’ve developed a proven treatment program for rehabilitating chemically treated lawns. We start with a lawn analysis which lets us know the condition of your yard as well as what is needed for the grass to thrive. We then begin weaning the turf off the chemicals it has become dependent upon and detox the soil from pesticides and chemical based fertilizers.


Once detoxed, we can begin treating the soil with the exact nutrients needed to feed the grass and build a beautiful, safe and resilient yard. We can effectively create lush, green lawns with reduced use of chemicals. Just as chemicals are toxic to humans and animals, they also destroy soils ability to absorb vital nutrients and cover up potential underlying problems.


Our “Green” professionals are licensed and trained in using the safest and most effective product applications available.


Core Aeration & Over Seeding in Gretna


Aeration is important to maintaining a healthy lawn.  Aerating involves removing 2-3 inch deep plugs from the soil which provides many benefits to the overall health of your grass roots. Next to having us treat your lawn on a regular basis, aeration is the most beneficial thing you can do to improve the health of your yard.


Over-seeding right after aeration gives the best seed to soil contact, helps hold the seed in place, and helps to provide a damp environment for the seed to germinate. We recommend aerating and overseeding during the fall for best possible results!


Additional Lawn Care Services


Dethatching / Power Rake


“De-thatching” or Power Raking lawns refers to the removal of the layer of dead turf grass tissue known as “thatch” from the grass. 


Insect & Disease Control


At EcoScapes, we are licensed by the Nebraska Department of Agriculture for lawn treatments and outdoor pesticide applications. We have the experience and knowledge needed to identify issues and treat them accordingly with our eco-friendly products.


Drill / Slit Seeding 


Drill seeding is a process that uses a machine to cut grooves in the soil and place a measured amount of seed in that groove.  Excellent germination rates are achieved because the seed is placed down in soil at the proper depth.

Lawn Maintenance

Ongoing lawn maintenance is vital to the health and appearance of your yard. At EcoScapes, we provide maintenance services for your lawn from Spring through Summer and into fall and winter. Our lawn maintenance services are intended to keep your yard groomed and healthy at all times.

We have limited spots available in our schedule so give us a call today to insure your lawn is being serviced by Gretna’s finest.  Some of our lawn maintenance services include:


Lawn Mowing In Gretna


Proper mowing is critical for grass to thrive. Turf areas are mowed weekly, usually beginning in April and lasting until the end of October, with three additional “cleanup” mowing’s in November.


We do not believe in bagging the grass as it deprives the soil of additional nitrogen and nutrients available from the clippings. Mulching provides natural fertilizer and that is the EcoScapes way of maintaining your lawn.


Additional Lawn Maintenance Services


In addition to mowing, we provide the following maintenance services as part of our basic lawn maintenance program. Compare our service to the other lawn care companies around and you’ll quickly see why we stand above the rest.  


Debris Removal


Prior to each mowing, we inspect and remove any debris and litter found on your property.


Trimming or “weed eating”


Trimming is performed around the perimeter of the home, road signs, trees, landscape beds, utility poles, and other obstacles, taking special care to not damage trees or landscaping. Careful attention is given to ensure all grass is trimmed at the same height as the mower cut.




All sidewalks, curbs, concrete slabs, or other hard surface areas will be edged with a professional edger as needed to maintain a neat, clean appearance. This is done approximately once per month. All edge’s are otherwise cleaned up weekly using a string trimmer.


Clean /Blow off Hard Surfaces


At the conclusion of each visit, all walks, driveways and other hard surfaces are swept or blown clean leaving your property clean and well manicured.

Seasonal Services

Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall… each season brings a new set of challenges and opportunities when caring for your lawn.

History of Gretna, NE

Located in Sarpy County, Gretna is a bustling community on the outskirts of Omaha.


How it Began

Gretna Ne was originally founded in the year 1886 when it was purchased for $560 from the Lincoln Land Company. The city of Gretna was officially Incorporated in 1889.  In its earliest years, Gretna was an 80-acre plot of land constructed along the Burlington Northern Railroad rails. The Burlington Railroad was extremely important at the time because it made a connection between the city of Omaha and Ashland Nebraska. Prior to Burlington Northern, Forest City had been the local trading post and had existed since 1856. It was a busy and flourishing town up to this point but came to an end due to the railroad. What essentially happened is the residents of Forest City moved to this newly developed area closer to the railroad. This basically moved the town of Forest City to Gretna.


Origin of the Name

Gretna’s name was initially inspired from Scotland’s Gretna Green. This is because most of the early settlers of the community came from the Scotland and had Scottish ancestry. The name of the community was officially announced as Gretna on the 10th of July 1889.


Geographic Location

Gretna Nebraska is located on Hwy 6 and is approximately 30 minutes from downtown Omaha and a 40-mile drive to Lincoln. The Elkhorn River and Platte River are only a few miles away from the city which gives the residents of Gretna an easy escape from their daily routines. Kayoing, tubing, and fishing are some of the activity’s residents enjoy.


Modern Day Gretna

In present day, Gretna is quite large compared to its humble beginnings and has been growing rapidly since 2000. Gretna has seen many improvements and developments since that time and literally has the best of both worlds to offer residents. It has the benefits of small town living with a major metropolitan only a few minutes away.
