When we bought our current home, there was not much curb appeal to speak of. The previous owner had stopped paying for his mortgage payment a couple years prior to our purchase and he had stopped caring for the home all together. There was not much grass left on the lawn, what remained were just patches of brown grass. Because the house was under massive remodeling for several months before we officially moved in, we didn't worry about the lawn until we were settled into our new home. However, it was then, we were faced with the reality that our lawn is without a doubt the worst looking one in the neighbor.
We ended up hiring TruGreen to help us save our lawn. Within a couple of month, our lawn was growing back. The grass was lush and green. Even our neighbors made a point of coming to our house to tell us how amazing our lawn looked. We thought TruGreen did an excellent job with our lawn. We loved that after every visit, the specialist would leave a note on our door to inform us exactly what was done as well as his recommendations for the next visit.
