When the New Year comes around, it’s easy to start making promises to yourself that you may or may not keep. Our recommendation? Stop making promises to yourself and start making them to your lawn! We’ve got the resolutions along with tips on lawn maintenance to ensure that you have the best lawn year yet.
Resolution #1: Make a Plan!
Having a plan for taking care of your lawn is the first step in having a beautiful lawn in 2020. Ensure your lawn stays healthy all year long by creating a lawn care calendar to keep track of mowing, watering and raking. Now is also a good time to check out which TruGreen plan is right for your lawn’s needs. 
Resolution #2: Keep an Eye on Things!
You’ll want to inspect your lawn throughout the year for problem areas like pests, weeds or disease. These issues can come on suddenly and wreak havoc on a lawn that is unmonitored. If you are able to spot and treat these issues early, there is a better chance of your lawn thriving in 2020. Want a second set of eyes?

Resolution #3: Water is Your Friend (Well, Your Lawn’s Friend)!
We all know how important watering your lawn is, but we also want to be conscious of when and how much we are watering throughout the year. Here’s our favorite trick: take an empty tuna can and place it on your lawn. Set a timer and keep an eye on the can as your sprinklers run. Once the can is full of water, turn it off. Notice how long it took to fill? That’s the amount of time you should be watering your lawn about 2-3 times per week. Live in an area that sees heavy rainfall? You’ll want to adjust your watering schedule accordingly to give your sprinkler a break when mother nature does the watering for you.
Resolution #4: Help Your Lawn Out!
Lawns are living creatures and need to eat too! In 2020, you’ll want to be sure you’re providing your lawn with the proper nutrients to help it grow green and lush. That may feel overwhelming, but luckily you’ve got a friend in the biz. Lean on your TruGreen professional to help you come up with a fertilization, aeration and seeding schedule that will see your lawn throughout the year.
Resolution #5: Live Life Outside!
Lastly, this is the most important resolution we encourage you to make in 2020: spend more time outside! With a healthy and beautiful lawn, you’ve got the perfect backdrop for any activity you can think of doing like spring picnics, summer barbecues, fall festivities and those winter bonfires that keep you toasty and full of S’mores. Not to mention the endless games of tag, the kite flying, the ball kicking and TONS of other activities the whole family can enjoy.
This is the year of clear vision, and we can’t wait to see your vision for a healthy lawn come to life. At TruGreen, we’re here to help you live life outside to the fullest and you can count on us.
