When I purchased my home three years ago, I inherited a lawn that was full of issues such as persistent crabgrass, creeping charlie and a multitude of dandelions overflowing from the next door neighbors failure to even mow his lawn more than twice per season. (I hate renters, but that is another article.) I spend a small fortune each year putting down seed and fertilizer to try to get the front and back yards to look somewhat pleasant, but I always feel like I am behind the eight ball.
So this year, I decided to hire TruGreen to aerate, seed and fertilize my lawn. I had seen my neighbor's success with lawn care services. His looks like the 18th hole at pebble beach. Mine aspires to be the course in Caddy Shack at the end of the movie after all of the explosions. Unfortunately, I did not ask my neighbor which service he used before contacting TruGreen.
