Proper Lawn Care Maintenance with the Support of TruGreen!

Posted by Jenna | Thursday, August 22, 2013

 **I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for TruGreen. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

During the summer months, our lawn becomes an outdoor living space where we entertain and spend a lot of time with family and friends. From BBQs to pool parties, we have many fond memories each year! Spending so much time in our yard means we want our lawn to look its best once summertime begins. Unfortunately, summer can be one of the toughest time to maintain a beautiful, green lawn though. No matter how hard my hubby and I try, we often still see brown and bare spots.

That's why I am thankful for TruGreen. For those who aren't familiar, TruGreen is an industry leader and the nation's largest professional lawn care company. They want to help educate homeowners on proper summer lawn care in order to give you striking curb appeal and even help raise a home's value! 

TruGreen's specialized lawn services are designed to specifically meet your lawn's needs at key stages throughout the year based on climate, grass type, soil condition and usage. A certified lawn specialist can develop a tailored lawn plan to give your lawn exactly what it needs at the right time. How neat is that?! 
When we were selling our home a couple of years ago, we got comments that the curb appeal could have been better. I feel like we could have sold our home more quickly had we taken advantage of TrueGreen services and tips! The curb appeal of our current home is what we loved and noticed right away when we saw it for the first time.

I'm thankful for TruGreen and the benefits of their services can have for lawns, trees and shrubs year round! Not only does it help lawns look great, but having a nice yard truly does enhance curb appeal! They've even created three new summer webisodes where licensed contractor and TV host, Jason Cameron, talks about how your home can be judged by its lawn. The series of episodes includes useful tips from its website.

I found the summer episode two to be very interesting. I really didn't realize that bare spots can occur from too much water. We tend to water our grass a lot during the summer time (daily) to help it come back from the harsh winter weather, but I've learned that may not be helping it. In this episode, Cameron shares simple tips for proper watering of lawns, including placing a one-inch deep empty food can in the middle of your yard to measure depth of water collected each watering cycle. The recommendation to water in the early morning also makes sense, since watering later in the day may leave sitting water and cause problems with root rot or fungal diseases. You can check out the webisode's been very eye-opening for us!

Although hard to believe it's that time of year already, Fall is nearing. I have also learned more about how fall is the ideal time to prep lawns, trees and shrubs for spring's growth cycle and the next home buying season. here are a couple of tips:
  • Fall lawn tip #1: Use corrective pruning in the fall to prevent dead or overgrown plants from detracting from your home’s personality. Proper pruning in the fall can enhance a plant’s growth in the spring.
  • Fall lawn tip #2: Help your lawn breathe through fall core aeration to strengthen roots. And give lawn, tree and shrub roots a good fall feed to provide them the energy to prepare for a hard spring workout. Roots continue active growth before the dormant winter months and store reserves needed for growth in spring.

    I'd also like to hear from TruGreen about the things they teach people about lawn care. I know that I have a lot to learn especially the specifics including the science of lawn care. :)

    I like the fact that lawn care is also being discussed here. There are lots of people who have issues with this and it's a big deal because lawns are sometimes the safest place our kids can play.

    Hi Jenna!

    It's amazing how some basic knowledge can go a long way. Before, I also didn't know about aeration, lawn seeding and the like! And that there are proper seasons for those activities. :-)

    I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get set
    up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Tied to suburban expansion and the making of the family unit tasteful, the garden is a vital part of the association between the characteristic environment and the built urban and suburban space.
