Our back yard lawn is an outdoor living room for my family and where we do most of our entertaining until it gets cold. For us, the back yard was one of the main reasons we purchased our home. We couldn’t get past the scenery.
When we moved in, our yard was a mess. Actually, mostly a mud. We had to reseed the majority of it and then we had mostly weeds for the first year.
Did you know that the quality of your lawn can tell people about the quality of your home overall? It makes sense and could be a huge factor if you are selling your house. I know that it helped us sell our past houses because the owners told us how much they liked the lawn and gardens. What does your yard say about your house?
We spend a lot of time in our back yard in the Summer and Fall. Whether we are dining on the patio, playing on the playground, or just entertaining in our yard, it gets a workout.
Especially during the Summer months, our lawn sees wear and tear from tent camping, sports, motor toys, and more! Not to mention our puppy running full force after deer on a nearly daily basis! I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for TruGreen. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
I’m glad that we have a lawn plan from TruGreen to keep our lawn healthy, thick, and cared for.
We have been using TruGreen for 3 summers now and love the difference. It has increased our enjoyment of our entire home and I know it has improved our curb appeal! It has motivated me to garden more too, which makes it even more lovely. Having a healthy, green lawn gets kids outside playing more too! Check out how thick, green, and healthy our lawn is now.
TruGreen offers some great tips for homeowners to keep your yards cared for year round. One great tip I just learned for enhancing your lawn is to avoid mowing in the heat of the day. We normally don’t anyway because it is the hottest time of day! However, when you mow in cooler temperatures of the day, it allows the cut grass to bounce back after being cut. It also helps to avoid brown, dry spots in your lawn.
We have seen the TruGreen difference over the past couple years. Our yard is thick, green, and healthy now. Before, it was thin, weedy, and unhealthy.
Fall Lawn Tips
Just because Summer is coming to an end doesn’t mean you should give up on your lawn. In fact, now is the time to prep your lawn for next Spring’s growth. We have always hired a location company to aerate our lawn too to strengthen roots – it is very much worth it!
Also, it is the prime time for fertilizing. Don’t guess on it, call TruGreen and take a scientific approach – you’ll see the TruGreen difference. A TruGreen lawn specialist will come to your home, analysis your soil and lawn, and come up with a specialized lawn program for your yard’s needs. We did this 2 years ago and learned exactly what our yard needed – it was different in the front lawn and the back. We would have never known this on our own.
