The Science Behind How TruGreen Works
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.
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.
