Fall is a common time of difficulties for people with lawns. It is also one of the busiest times of year for TruGreen Lawn Care, as this is when people are most in need of their service. It is very important to properly prepare a lawn during fall, so that it is able to survive the long and often harsh winter. True Green has therefore developed a number of tips that people can apply themselves in terms of their fall lawn care.
A Fall Lawn Service
What you need to do to your lawn depends on how healthy it is. However, generally, it will require:
- Insect control.
- Crabgrass control.
- Weed control.
- Core aeration.
Once you have done that, you will be ready to prep your lawn for winter.
You may believe that your lawn is in really good condition, but it is generally still recommended to over-seed and to aerate the core. You should do this at the same time, as they go hand in hand. Essentially, you will unplug the soil so it isn’t as compact anymore, and you then seed it so that it will look lush come springtime.
Over-seeding will only work, however, if your soil is healthy. Hence, you may need to purchase some new top soil to really get your lawn going. Do not be tempted to purchase cheap bags of soil, however, as those usually have diseases in them, and even weeds. Furthermore, low quality soil doesn’t have a lot of nutrients in, and therefore won’t do anything good for your lawn.
If you can, purchase a bulk bag of soil instead and go to a reputable garden center for this. By buying in bulk, you will make quite significant savings. Plus, you will have enough immediately to treat your entire lawn. An added benefit is that it is delivered straight to your door, which in turn means that you won’t have a car that is covered in bits of top soil for months, no matter how often you have it valeted.
By now, you may have realized that maintaining a good lawn, be that during fall or during any other season, is quite a lot of work and not one without expenses either. The alternative, therefore, is to hire a company like True Green to do the work for you. While you do have to pay for these services, you also have to pay for materials if you decide to do things yourself, and you have to put a price on the time you spend doing it as well.
So why should you choose True Green? A quick search for their name will reveal hundreds of positive reviews from their many clients. Spend some time reading all these reviews and, as a prospective customer, take the time to comment on them as well. If you are doing your research and you find a particular review helpful, letting the reviewer and the company know about this is always appreciated.
