Ah, the sight and scents of a lush, healthy, green lawn. Is there anything better? Not likely! But we don't always have the knowledge and expertise to make it look and feel perfect, no matter how hard we try.
Homeowners often consider, and wisely so, lawn maintenance services of some sort to help achieve that lush green lawn they will love. Yet every lawn is unique and has specific needs that must be met for it to thrive. Thankfully the folks at TruGreen® know that, which is why they offer tailored lawn care plans that will meet your lawn's specific needs
what does your lawn need?
The PhD certified specialists at TruGreen have identified some basic needs that every lawn needs to thrive, such as:
- Nutrients. Anything living needs the right amount of nutrients to survive, and your lawn is no different. It's not enough to water it and hope for the best. That lush, green color comes from healthy, nutrient-rich soil.
- Weed control. Nothing chokes the air out of your grass more than weeds. Your weed problem can range from pesky to downright problematic, and ignoring it and hoping it will go away simply won't do.
- Insect control. One problem area for many homeowners who wish their lawn was just a bit more responsive? Lawn damaging insects. They eat the grass blades, break up the soil and wreak havoc on what could be—and should be— your beautiful lawn.
- Maintenance. For your lawn to be healthy, it must be tended to with more than just water and food. Things like climate changes and weather variations— such as long hot summers causing drought or long winters causing aggressive snow and ice—make the overall health of your lawn harder to maintain. The experts at TruGreen know how your lawn can be affected by these conditions, and can recommend a year-round plan to ensure optimal lawn health.
Unfortunately, there is a fine line between lawn care that just gets the job done and on-going lawn maintenance services that result in exceptionally healthy, green lawns. Plus, there is one very important question to consider: Are you an expert? Only an expert will know exactly how to spot problems, identify what’s causing them, and determine how to address them properly and efficiently.
So how does TruGreen approach achieving a healthy, green lawn? Simply put, TruGreen understands that your lawn is unique and has specific needs that must be met for it to thrive. This is why they offer a range of science-based lawn plans designed to give your lawn the right help at the right time. Every TruGreen lawn plan begins with a Healthy Lawn Analysis®, performed by a PhD certified specialist, who then creates a tailored plan that will give your lawn exactly what it needs to reach its full potential. The best part is that the lawn care experts at TruGreen are committed to your lawn year-round, not just for the season.
