Choose TruGreen Memphis for Lawn Care
Because Memphis is one of the wettest cities in America, local homeowners face two big landscaping problems: weeds and lawn disease. The muggy Tennessee summers provide the perfect humid breeding grounds for both, especially on top of the large amounts of rainfall we get. So though your grass will grow, it won’t always be the healthiest—that’s where TruGreen Memphis comes in.
How TruGreen Lawn Care in Memphis WorksThe first thing that we do with new customers is send our PhD-certified experts to your home to perform a Healthy Lawn Analysis®.✦ We’ll check your yard to see how the climate and rainfall are affecting your lawn’s health, plus perform a pH balance test on your soil to make sure your grass has the best growing environment possible. Depending on what we find—insects, disease, lack of nutrients—we’ll formulate a scientifically backed plan to make your lawn the healthy, green patch of relaxation it should be.
- Soil amendment. If your soil isn’t optimized for grass growth, nothing else you do to take care of it is going to work very well. Our lawn care professionals start off by adding the nutrients and minerals healthy lawns need to grow then come back every 4 to 6 weeds as needed to make sure all of your levels are still good.
- Killing weeds. A healthy lawn naturally “weeds out” weeds on its own, so our goal is to help your grass grow dense so weeds can’t compete in your yard. To do that, we first apply targeted weed control to kill what’s there now then come back with pre-emergent herbicide as needed to make sure weeds don’t return.
- Get rid of lawn diseases. Our large rainfalls, short winters and muggy summers mean your lawn is almost always at risk for lawn fungus—especially the three most common Memphis lawn diseases: Brown Patch, Fairy Ring and Dollar Spot. We’ll help you get rid of any current lawn diseases then make sure your grass has access to the nutrients it needs to grow strong so it can resist diseases in the future. Our tree and shrub service can do the same for your landscaping, keeping it not only disease-free but insect-free as well.
- Mosquito control. With all the Memphis rainfall and humidity, yards can easily become overrun with mosquitoes that breed anywhere standing water is found. TruGreen Memphis knows where these bloodsuckers hide and can virtually clear your yard of mosquitoes in less than 24 hours with our Mosquito Defense treatment, giving your family peace of mind when it comes to Zika and West Nile Virus. If other harmful insects are a problem—like ticks, fleas, chiggers, spiders and ants—our TruShieldSM Tick and Flea Control service can help make your yard safer for your loved ones.
So whether you want to raise your curb appeal or just live a better life outside, we’ve got you—and the city of Memphis—covered.
