Portage, MI is a Midwestern town with unique and challenging lawn care needs. With over 19,649 households and an average yard size of 6,259 sq. ft., there’s a lot of lawn to maintain. Luckily, the local Portage TruGreen office can help a fellow Michiganite 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 Portage residents a vibrant and healthy lawn every season of the year. Having a lush green lawn in the spring and summer requires work throughout the year, not just during the seasons where you get to enjoy it the most.
Our team knows just what your yard needs because they’re local. They understand what works in Portage and can take local climate, soil, and other factors unique to Portage to create a custom lawn care plan. For example, the most common grass types in Portage are Kentucky Bluegrass, perennial ryegrass, and fescue grass. Our local experts know these (along with other types that may present) and know what your yard needs and how to care for it. Each TruGreen plan is tailored to your yard’s specific soil condition, grass type, and your usage.
Plus, our lawn care plans come with a Healthy Lawn Guarantee®, which gives our TruGreen Portage customers confidence that when you purchase one of our lawn care plans, you will be satisfied with the results.

In addition to lawn care services, TruGreen offers all of the above services in Portage. Below are details on our tree and shrub care as well as our pest control services.
TruGreen Tree and Shrub Care
If you’re looking for the ideal yard in Portage, you’ll want tree and shrub care as well as lawn service. This maintenance need often goes overlooked. But having a landscape that flourishes with trees and shrubs will not only enhance the overall appearance of your property, it will also help its property value. TruGreen in Portage, MI offers a variety of services for your trees and shrubs that are backed by science. Our service starts with a Tree & Shrub Evaluation conducted by a local TruGreen Portage PhD certified expert. They’ll determine what your landscape needs are and will tailor an approach to give you the yard of your dreams.
TruGreen Mosquito Control
Enjoying your lawn can be ruined by a common pest: mosquitos. These biting insects are a nuisance that can make being outside in your backyard uncomfortable. TruGreen in Portage offers a solution with our Mosquito Defense lawn treatment services. Our TruGreen technicians will spray your yard with professional mosquito repellent, eliminating those biting pests from your yard in 24 hours.
All yards are different which means sometimes mowing and watering just isn’t enough to get the healthy, lush lawn that you want. We have a team of PhD-certified specialists who pride themselves in serving the Portage community by creating and maintaining beautiful lawns. They will evaluate your lawn in order to create a plan that’s tailored to your specific needs based on your type of soil, the condition of your soil, the grass type you need, and the Portage climate. All of this is backed by our Healthy Lawn Guarantee. Additionally, we offer mosquito treatment — the TruGreen Mosquito Defense, which is an innovative mosquito control formula. That formula gets rid of biting mosquitoes within 24 hours of the first application.
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.
