DIY Lawn Care vs Professionals at TruGreen – See the Difference!

My husband and I are DIYers when it comes to most things. We take on many home remodeling projects and plenty of outdoor projects including tree removal, landscaping, and gardening. Although we love having a lush green yard, we have never been able to attain it on our own. We started using TruGreen a couple years ago and cannot believe the difference it made. We are receiving lawn care service this Summer to show you the results and facilitate this post. We thought we were doing all the right things as home owners for years and years but we didn’t have the science-based solutions that TruGeen does!

We started out with very weak grass that was filled with lots of crab grass and weeds. TruGreen came out to give us a Healthy Lawn Analysis by a TruGreen PhD certified specialist 2 year ago. He took samples of our yard from various spots to come up with a scientific plan that was truly unique to our yard – it even differed from the back to front yard! They have it down to a science!

TruGreen took care of the weeds right away with a +Nitrogen +Phosphorous +Potassium Fertilizer to our yard. You can see exactly where TruGreen was and wasn’t used because the weeds start where TruGreen ends! Compare our yard now to our neighbor’s yard below – our yard use to look even worse than our neighbor’s before TruGreen!

Our TruGreen specialist Charles does an amazing job on our lawn every summer. It takes him only about 1/2 hour once a month or so to get our lawn in shape and keep it that way!

The thing about DIY lawn work is that we are not all trained to know our exact lawn care’s needs.  If we get it wrong, there is no money back or satisfaction guarantee. With TruGreen, you’ll love your lawn with their 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Many DIYers do their own work to save money – we do this for many, many projects around the house. However, TruGreen lawn plans start at just $194.25 a year   – count it up, don’t you spend that much at your local garden store buying all the fertilizers with mediocre results – and your own labor?
