Lawn Lessons

This is a sponsored post written by me for SheSpeaks and TrueGreen. You can read my full disclosure policy here.

There is a learning curve when you purchase a house. I have documented some of our lessons in my House to Home series. Living in Florida, it seems like maintaining the lawn is a constant challenge. We spend a lot of time outside, so keeping the lawn in top shape for playing is important.

We have the mowing, edging and trimming down, but probably get a less than passing grade on the rest of it. After 2 years of trying to manage the fertilization and weed control ourselves, we brought in TruGreen for help. In just a couple of months, they have started to fix the weeds and brown spots that were a little out of control.

Water and irrigation are another area where there is a lot to learn. Parts of our lawn are always wet and others are dry. This coupled with the crazy weather makes lawn watering a bigger job than I could have ever imagined. It seems like the perfect balance is an unreachable goal. I really want to get it right because that is good for both the environment and our pocketbook benefit.  Now TruGreen can help us with that too.

  TruGreen is adding Sprinkler Repair and Maintenance services to their portfolio of services. They can help with repairing and adjusting sprinkler heads, fixing leaks, system testing, rain sensor testing and other irrigation services. TruGreen will also help with system updates and renovations. Now we don't have anymore excuses for not installing the second water meter we have been talking about for a while.

Right now TruGreen Sprinkler Repair and Maintenance is available in select cities in Florida, Missouri, Nebraska, Arkansas and Tennessee. They will be growing to more than a dozen markets in 2016. 

More information about TruGreen and their Sprinkler Repair and Maintenance can be found at their website. Remember a healthy lawn is part of the foundation for living more of life outside.
