How to Get the Perfect Lawn: TruGreen Irrigation Service

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/TruGreen.

I’ve been living in Florida on and off for 15 years and in that time I’ve always wondered what the secret is to those homes with the perfect lawns. Since our weather here tends almost always to be beautiful, we spend a lot of time outdoors. We use our backyard for family time to play catch football, relax in the hammock, or to sit around the fire at our homemade firepit. We live life outdoors, and it’s important for us to have a lawn that’s nice, especially since we live on a golf course and the lawns in my neighborhood that aren’t sufficiently knowledgeable about their irrigation systems stand out. Fortunately, for us we were introduced to TruGreen’s new Irrigation Services.

TruGreen Sprinkler Repair and Maintenance™

Currently available in select cities, such as metro Orlando, TruGreen brings decades of lawn care expertise to our yards with services such as repairs, system openings, and winterization. It’s an amazing service and since working with TruGreen, I’ve learned a lot that most homeowners don’t know about their lawns. The great news is this service is already available in select cities in Florida, Missouri, Nebraska, Arkansas and Tennessee, TruGreen Sprinkler Repair and Maintenance will be launching in more than a dozen markets in 2016.


My Personal Experience

I want to share my personal experience with our local TruGreen office in Orlando. When I thought I was signing up to get the service I wasn’t sure what to expect, but a nice sales representative came out and when he went to test my system, it didn’t turn on. I had no idea it wasn’t working because I had tested it only a week before and it seemed to be working fine. He put a call in and shortly thereafter a technician came out and realized our unit was dead and had to be replaced. We set up an appointment and the team came out and took care of replacing the unit and installing an updated rain sensor for us. The price for that service and repair was far less than I had anticipated and the new system works flawlessly. All this work was done and it didn’t require me being at home, which is a bonus.

Your annual Maintenance Plan includes:
  • Spring irrigation opening:  Prepares your system for use in the warmer months
  • Backflow testing:  A mandatory requirement by the State of Tennessee
  • Summer tune-up:  Mid-summer inspection to ensure your system is optimal
  • Pre-winter irrigation closing: Helps prevent cracked and broken pipes during freezing weather
TruGreen Irrigation Guarantee
  • All parts and labor are guaranteed for 2 years from date of installation*
  • FREE spring opening and winter closing during the first 12 months after installation

If your lawn means as much to you as ours this is definitely worth the small investment. There is so much more to having a nice lawn then turning on a sprinkler. Are you getting full coverage? Are you using the right heads? Do you know how much water your lawn and plants are actually getting? Do you know how to adjust your heads? How many days a week can you legally water your lawn? TruGreen takes care of all these things and more, so you don’t have to. You have a to live life outdoors, let TruGreen worry about the lawn.

  1. We are still working on remodeling our home and once that is complete, we are going to start landscaping. I envy riding past yards and it just looks so perfectly manicured and green! This would be an awesome investment once we do begin our landscaping!

  2. We used trugreen all last summer and had no idea there was an irrigation service.
    I wonder if they just don’t offer if here? Something to look into for sure for when the snow melts. I am ready to be done with the snow and cold that’s for sure!

  3. You are so lucky to live in Florida! It’s a gorgeous state! I was always amazed by how green the lawns were. Now I know the secret.

  4. I can’t keep anything alive, with the exception of my kids. I wish there was trugreen out here! I’d hire them for sure, and stop envying my neighbors yard!

  5. We definitely need an irrigation service. Remembering to water the lawn every day is inconvenient and time-consuming. This would be a great service to have installed.

  6. We got irrigation installed several years ago and it certainly helps during hot summers. It was not cheap though since we’re on 3 acres.

  7. We have a very healthy lawn. The irrigation plays a vital role in maintaining its beauty.

  8. I think it would be nice to invest in their system since they have a service guarantee for two years. This would definitely keep your lawn green and healthy.

    Truegreen sounds like a great irrigation service company for sure. It is so hard to get a great company you trust and who have great deals. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Sounds like a great service. I am lucky that I live in a complex that takes care of all the green around us. But this is a great option for those who don’t have that kind of service.

  11. I grew up in the Orlando area and remember how important a nice green lawn was! Now I live out in the country and we don’t worry about it too much 🙂

  12. This is great info. We really need to work on our lawn this year something terrible because dogs…Hopefully Truegreen may be an option for us to look in to!

  13. Having a nice lawn – especially with spring coming up – is so important! I will definitely remember this once the snow all melts! 😉

  14. I do not have a lawn but I would so love to have one some day, back home in Zambia it was important to have a nice lawn but irrigation systems where always a problem glad to hear trugreen offers a nice service

  15. I love your image of the open valve! We are truly blessed to be in Florida aren’t we?

  16. These are such wonderful tips and you are so lucky to live in Florida! Great post!!

  17. I am so ready for the snow to melt and have green grass to play on. We just got finished putting in our sprinkler system and planting our yard last year. Now on to some landscaping!

  18. I think a proper irrigation service is important in maintaining a healthy lawn & you need to make sure you are ready to spend on it. Trugreen sounds like a wonderful option to go ahead to get the best we need.

  19. I live in a condo down on Marco Island, I truly miss taking care of our lawn and gardens! MY son uses Truegreen for his lawn care.
