River Forest Lawn Care Needs

River Forest, IL is a Midwestern town with unique and challenging lawn care needs. Luckily, the local River Forest TruGreen office can help a fellow Illinoisan out.

From fertilization and lime application in the winter to targeted weed control and tree/shrub fertilization in the summer, TruGreen PhD certified specialists have the expertise to give River Forest residents a vibrant and healthy lawn every season of the year.

River Forest, IL is part of the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 5b, which means the average annual minimum Winter temperature is -15 to -10 degrees (F). Illinois’s annual precipitation of 39.2 inches ranks 27th in the country, while its average annual temperature of 51.8°F ranks 23th in the country. As a result, River Forest residents often choose to plant geraniums, lantana, and petunia as well as echinacea, bee balm, and phlox in their yards. This hot and dry climate for River Forest leaves lawns exposed to drought and pests like hunting billbug, white grubs, japanese beetles, and elm bark beetles, meaning that consistent lawn and pest treatment is crucial for keeping trees and lawns healthy. Below are additional climate statistics to keep in mind for your local River Forest lawn care needs:

  • Avg. Spring Temp: 51.6
  • Avg. Summer Temp: 73.4
  • Avg. Fall Temp: 53.8
  • Avg. Winter Temp: 28.3
  • Avg. Annual Temp: 51.8
  • Annual Precipitation: 39.2 in.

The Science Behind How TruGreen Works

Our Agronomists

Your lawn care needs can vary greatly depending on where you live. The problems and solutions for lawn care are influenced by factors such as region, climate, and season. That’s why TruGreen has a team of expert agronomists who know and continually research the condition of your region to provide you with the solutions you need for your yard. Additionally, these scientists instruct our team of TruGreen specialists in the TruExpert Certification Program. This allows every specialist to have a thorough understanding of advanced lawn care techniques, products, and equipment. That means every TruGreen service is conducted with the right equipment in the right way at the right time.

Our Specialists

Because your lawn has specific needs, it’s best to approach it with a scientifically-tailored solution. We take the time to certify our lawn care specialists through a rigorous training which requires annual recertification, giving them a TruGreen PhD. That ensures that our specialists develop and maintain their expertise so they can provide you with the results you want. After graduation and certification, TruGreen specialists are ready to evaluate your lawn using the TruGreen Healthy Lawn Analysis®. That analysis allows your specialist to tailor the science-based results to perfectly meet your lawn care needs all year round.


Is my TruGreen service guaranteed?

Yes! All TruGreen customers benefit from our Healthy Lawn Guarantee®. That means we’ll come out to service your property as many times as needed between scheduled visits to make any necessary changes so you’re satisfied.

What’s the timeframe between applications?

While it does depend on your plan, typically applications are applied every 4-6 weeks.

Does TruGreen use dry granular or liquid materials when treating my lawn?

TruGreen uses both dry and liquid materials. The type of material we use depends on the time of year as well as what is best for your lawn. You’ll know exactly what we’re using because each time we service your property, we’ll leave a service ticket listing what we used during our visit.

When can pets and families return to serviced areas?

After a service, we advise customers to let the application dry before allowing families and pets to resume enjoying their lawns. That typically means 1-2 hours after treatment. However, the drying time can vary significantly depending on temperature, wind, cloud cover, and other factors which could delay drying time.

TruGreen River Forest Reviews

My lawn had clover weeds, crab grass and other weeds as well as bare spots. I didn't have time to care for myself. I started late in the season yet the change has exceeded my expectations. I am very pleased with the elimination of almost all the weed issues I was having. My lawn looks great and well on its way to a healthier and greener lawn. I look forward to a second year with TruGreen.

TruGreen has eliminated the Creeping Charlie that took over my backyard, and the mosquito control services have made outdoors liveable (and have prevent mosquitos entering the house whenever my dog goes out). Service professionals are polite and, most importantly to a dog owner, remember to shut the gate when they are done. Very happy with the service.
