Prior to moving into our new home a few months ago, we took care of every aspect of our lawn care. From maintenance to grass cutting to trimming and blowing, it was all our responsibility.
However, the previous homeowners had used a lawn care service called TruGreen. While the homeowners still cut the grass and did all the basic lawn care, TruGreen would come in and fertilize the yard, as well as treat for weeds and help to maintain the overall health of the yard.
This is a service we decided to continue when we moved into the home. Why? Well, in short– the yard looked incredible. The grass was lush and green. You know, the kind of grass you just want to sink your bare feet into. We figured that they must be doing something right and wanted our yard to continue looking incredible and inviting.
Over the past few months, I am became acclimated with TruGreen, their services, and what they have to offer. It’s pretty awesome, I have to say. You see, TruGreen takes a scientific approach to lawn care, personalizing their services to fit your lawn, grass type, soil, usage, and climate. They develop lawn plans to ensure that your yard is getting exactly what it needs, when it needs it.
TruGreen understands that the lawn is one of the first things people notice about a home. This is true, take it from me– someone who just spent lengthy amounts of time searching for a new home. It truly creates the curb appeal of a home. In fact, according to TruGreen’s Lawn Lifestyles National Survey of America, 53% said “the quality of the homeowner’s lawn can tell you a lot about the quality of the home overall.” I could not agree more.
The problem is that summer can tend to take a toll on lawns. Between entertaining friends and family, BBQ’s, late nights around the fire pit, and kids playing outside all day long– the yard is well-worn and well-loved. How do you go about regaining that lush, beautiful lawn you once had?
That’s where TruGreen comes in.
Their certified lawn specialists can help you to get your lawn back on track. They will help you identify the type of grass you have, which is essential to eliminating brown spots. They will also help to determine other causes of brown spots and ways you can remedy them. TruGreen can also help you understand the proper mower settings for your specific yard.
- Fall lawn tip #1: Use corrective pruning in the fall to prevent dead or overgrown plants from detracting from your home’s personality. Proper pruning in the fall can enhance a plant’s growth in the spring.
- Fall lawn tip #2: Help your lawn breathe through fall core aeration to strengthen roots. And give lawn, tree and shrub roots a good fall feed to provide them the energy to prepare for a hard spring workout. Roots continue active growth before the dormant winter months and store reserves needed for growth in spring.
We have been very pleased with the service we have received from TruGreen. I have seen them tailor and change services based on weather, as well as what our lawn is currently doing. They always call before coming and leave friendly notes when service is completed. I look forward to a continued relationship with TruGreen and hopefully adding additional services in the spring.
I encourage you to check out TruGreen and see how they can work for you and your lawn.
