Your Plant City TruGreen Lawn Care Experts Have You Covered
The Florida sun can be unbearably hot and unforgiving to people—imagine what it’s doing to your lawn. Between the scorching sun, random downpours and extended droughts, it’s hard trying to maintain a healthy lawn in Central Florida. Luckily, your Plant City TruGreen lawn care professionals know every trick in the book—mainly because we wrote it.
Maintaining Grass in Plant City—TruGreen Lawn Care 101The first thing you have to understand about Florida lawns is that no two are alike. That’s why we spend our entire initial visit performing our Healthy Lawn Analysis®.✦ During this inspection, we take soil samples to measure the pH balance and check for missing vital nutrients. We also walk your yard looking for weeds and signs of insects or lawn disease.
Our results help us create a path forward for your lawn. Using lime, nutrients or other amendments, we create the perfect fertilizer for your grass and then set up a schedule for fertilization visits, typically once every 4 to 6 weeks. For any weeds that we find, we start off with targeted weed control, applying safe but effective herbicide that kills the entire weed—right down to the root—but leaves your grass unharmed. To make sure that the weeds don’t come back, we use a pre-emergent application that doesn’t give weed seeds a chance.
Recommended Plant City Lawn Care From TruGreenDepending on the lawn care plan that you choose—plus other available services, which our experts may recommend based on your lawn’s needs—your interactions with us will be unlike anyone else’s. Our sole focus is on getting your lawn from where it is now to where you want it to be with as little headache as possible for you. Some of the ways we accomplish this include:
- Our Mosquito Defense. If you’re worried about diseases like West Nile Virus or Zika, our TruGreen Mosquito Defense application can turn your yard into a mosquito-free zone within 24 hours—and that’s backed by our Mosquito-Free Guarantee✧✦
- Aeration and overseeding. Compacted soil doesn’t allow your grass’s roots to get enough oxygen. Aeration allows air, water and nutrients to easily penetrate the soil, leading to a healthier, greener lawn with less thatch. If you have thinning or patchy grass due to sun damage, lawn disease or insect infestation, aeration could be a good time to overseed your lawn, which helps grass grow thicker and denser. Our TruComplete® or TruSignature® lawn care plans both include annual aeration services.
