Trust Alcoa TruGreen for Lawn Maintenance
As strange as it may sound, there is such a thing as soil that is too fertile for its own good. If you find yourself in a constant battle with weeds and lawn disease despite lawn that keeps growing, you may already know this—at TruGreen Alcoa, we see it all the time. That’s why our Knoxville lawn maintenance services focus on keeping your lawn weed- and disease-free, plus killing mosquitoes to keep you and your loved ones safe.
TruGreen Alcoa Weed Control and Lawn Disease PreventionAfter our initial Healthy Lawn Analysis®,✦ where we check your soil’s pH balance and look for signs of insects, disease and weeds, our lawn maintenance professionals customize a plan to make your lawn as healthy as possible. This typically includes fertilization every 4 to 6 weeks as needed, plus our targeted weed control to ensure that your grass grows in dense and healthy to keep future weeds away. If needed, we’ll also apply a pre-emergent weed control to kill weeds before they even have a chance to get started.
If you have very fertile soil, the combination of high rainfall and humidity could make your yard the perfect breeding ground for lawn diseases. The most common lawn diseases in this part of Eastern Tennessee include Brown Patch, Lawn Rust and Red Thread. If we find any signs of fungus, we’ll work to restore your lawn’s health as quickly as possible.
If there’s lawn damage present, we may also recommend either our TruComplete® or TruSignature® lawn care plans, which include aeration and overseeding. These services ensure that your grass receives vital oxygen and nutrients while also planting the seeds so that new grass fills in thin or bare spots, giving you a thick lawn that’s naturally resistant to weeds and lawn disease in the future.
TruGreen Alcoa Protection Against MosquitoesUnfortunately, the mosquito problem in Tennessee has continually gotten worse—especially now with reported cases of West Nile Virus and the possibility of Zika moving north. To protect your family and pets, you could either slather on a ton of insect repellent directly to your skin every time you go outside and hope you didn’t miss a spot, or you could go with our Mosquito Defense treatment to help protect your family, guests and pets.
Our delivery systems are designed to get into the hiding spots and breeding grounds, killing mosquitoes where they live and protecting those who matter most. We’re able to eliminate mosquitoes in your yard within 24 hours, and our Mosquito-Free Guarantee✧ means we’ll perform a free reservice should you get bitten between treatments.
At Alcoa TruGreen, we believe in spraying your yard, not your kids, because our kids are so important to us. In fact, our Knoxville branch won the 2018 Lawn Stars Award from TruGreen, winning and raising money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital—just like you, we’re all here raising our families in Knoxville together. Now let’s do it on a beautiful lawn.
