South Plainfield TruGreen Lawn Care Overview
Lawn care can be frustrating—you do everything that the experts tell you to do and still don’t get the results that they promise, whether mowing, watering, adding lime, etc. That’s because sometimes the problem runs deeper than the surface. Our lawn care experts at the South Plainfield TruGreen branch have extensive experience in getting to the root of your lawn’s problem—starting with your soil.
What to Expect on Your First Lawn Care Visit From TruGreenBecause no two lawns are alike, our South Plainfield PhD-certified specialists will come out to your home to perform a thorough inspection called the TruGreen Healthy Lawn Analysis®.✦ Our guys explore your entire yard, looking for signs of insect infestation and lawn disease while identifying every type of weed you have growing in your yard. We also perform a scientific pH balance test to see if your soil is too acidic.
When we’re done, we’ll know every single thing that we have to do to your lawn to give you the greenest, healthiest outdoor space possible. Then we get started. Using our calculations, we’ll add minerals and nutrients to your soil to adjust the pH balance and make your yard more conducive to growing thick, healthy grass.
South Plainfield Insect and Weed ControlAt the same time, we’ll start removing any weeds we find in your lawn, using a targeted control method to kill them where they grow. Then we’ll follow up with a pre-emergent technique designed to keep new and old weeds from coming back. This includes South Plainfield’s most notorious weeds: Crabgrass, Yellow Nutsedge and Dandelion.
Speaking of notorious, we’ll also root out any White Grubs from your lawn—the infamous beetle larvae capable of destroying your lawn’s roots from beneath the surface. White Grubs can bring a number of other predators, such as raccoons and possums, that like to root around in your lawn and dig for these “tasty” morsels. That means the White Grubs have to go—and we get rid of them with specialized tools to deliver our White Grub killer right to where they live.
Other services we offer, such as aeration and overseeding, are perfect for recovering from some of the more rampant lawn diseases found in Plainfield like Snow Mold, Brown Patch, Rust and Dollar Spot. Aeration ensures that your soil is less compacted and that your grass roots are receiving life-essential oxygen and nutrients, while overseeding fills in the thinning and bare patches that can be caused by insect and disease damage.
