Full-service lawn care in San Antonio

San Antonio is notoriously warm in the summer and wet in the winter. This varying weather can wreak havoc on your lawn. Unless you’re an outdoor enthusiast, you are likely one of the 31% of Americans who don’t know how to grow a healthy, lush-green lawn.

Hiring the right professional doesn’t just save you time and stress, but it ensures that any and all treatments are performed correctly and with high-quality products that best support your lawn.

These are some of the TruGreen lawn plans offered to San Antonio Metro residents:

  • TruHealthSM Lawn Plan—Want a basic plan that keeps your lawn beautiful throughout the year? This TruGreen plan includes eight scheduled visits per year and comes with slow-release fertilization, lime soil amendment to ensure your soil’s pH levels are balanced, and pre-emergent and targeted weed control. It does not include aeration, which is recommended especially if you have heavy foot traffic (such as kids and pets frequently running on the lawn).
  • TruCompleteSM Lawn Plan—This service plan incorporates all of the TruHealth Lawn offerings, plus grass aeration, which helps breakdown soil compaction and lets your soil breathe and gives your lawn access to the right nutrients.
  • TruSignatureSM—In addition to all of the services included in the TruComplete Lawn Plan, this TruGreen service plan comes with a tree and shrub plan, which includes an additional four scheduled visits per year. Instead of paying separately for tree and shrub care, you can simply sign up for this comprehensive plan. TruGreen experts will prevent, target, and destroy any insects and diseases that threaten your lawn’s health.

Each plan comes with a free Healthy Lawn Analysis®◆, performed by a TruExpert PhD-certified specialist. You want a professional to evaluate all aspects of your lawn before performing a lawn service, and TruGreen does just that. The reality is that your lawn likely differs from your neighbor’s and should, therefore, receive its own tailored treatment.

TruGreen’s San Antonio deals

Looking for an affordable, professional lawn care company in Bexar county? TruGreen has over 60 successful franchises throughout the country, including in San Antonio, Texas. With over 40 years of experience, it’s no surprise that TruGreen is accredited and has an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau (BBB).

Lawn care services can be expensive, especially if you hire a contractor for individual services. For example, lawn aeration typically costs $0.10 – $0.35 per square foot, which is between $75 to $200 on average. You can do it yourself, but that means renting or buying a lawn aerator, and applying it at the right time of the season and day. You may have to water the lawn before and overseed after, depending on your lawn’s needs. The process is complicated and is best left to the professionals.

With TruGreen, you can purchase a yearly service plan that includes various lawn care services such as lawn aeration, but also lime applications, fertilization, and targeted weed control. Enjoy the following services and more, starting at just $29.95 (for your first application only):

  • Soil analysis and amendment
  • Fertilization and multiple visits
  • Aeration and overseeding
  • Targeted weed and pest control
  • Tree and shrub services

The costs of lawn care in San Antonio shouldn’t prevent you from enjoying a beautiful lawn year-round. For the cheapest lawn service available, TruGreen offers various discounts.

If you’re an active member of the military or a veteran, you may be eligible to receive a military discount on your TruGreen San Antonio lawn plan. Call 888.535.3193 and speak with a TruGreen customer service representative about TruGreen discounts.

TruGreen reviews in your area

TruGreen recognizes that all lawns are created differently and require different needs. This is why they offer tailored, customizable plans. For example, you can add a soil analysis or a 100% all-natural organic option to your plan. TruGreen aims to provide the best care for your lawn.

No matter which lawn plan you choose, you can expect trained specialists to visit your home every four to six weeks, leave a summary of the services performed, and provide additional lawn care tips.

These TruGreen San Antonio-area reviews show that this lawn care provider prioritizes customer service.

The yard is now being serviced every six weeks (instead of every four weeks), which works perfectly for us. There have been no weeds in between sprayings and, most importantly, the year of service actually lasts about a year instead of eight months.

“On time and professional.” — Daniel

“Very easy and painless. I don’t have to do much at all.” — Charles

“I don’t have weeds! They put down weed killer and fertilizer at the correct times.” — Dave

Lawn care tips for San Antonio residents

Lawn care can be time-sensitive, confusing, and expensive, especially if you don’t know where to begin. We offer some quick lawn maintenance tips for throughout the year. If you live in San Antonio, you likely have one of the following warm-season grass types:

  • Buffalo: This warm-season grass is drought-tolerant and has a bluish hue. Buffalo grass requires little maintenance compared to other grass types and can withstand a range of warm and cold temperatures. Buffalo grass is a soft perennial grass that doesn’t need to be mowed as often as other grass types. For lawn mowing, you can keep the grass at 3–4 inches.
  • Bermuda: San Antonio lawns need to be able to withstand heat, drought, and cold temperatures (with an average annual low of 57.6 °F). Bermuda grass is often used in the warm regions, including the southern parts of the country, because it’s tolerant of drought, and resistant to normal wear and tear. However, it’s quite persistent and can really spread, so it’s difficult to replace. Bermuda grass should be cut shorter than other grasses at 1.5–2.5 inches.
  • Zoysia: Although this is a warm-season grass, Zoysia can survive the cold temperatures of cool regions (like the Northeast), but similar to Bermuda grass, Zoysia can spread quickly (and take over your favorite flower beds), so you have to be monitor it year-round. Although it’s ideal grass for San Antonio’s warm weather, it requires a lot of maintenance. So, if you’ve just purchased a house with Zoysia grass out front, you’ll want to get a professional look and start on a lawn care plan right away. Keeping this lawn cut at 1.5–3 inches is best.

Warm-season lawns require a precise lawn care plan. Here are a few quick tips to keep in mind:

  • Planting warm-season grass is best done in the spring, before the peak growing months.
  • When it’s not raining, we recommend watering up to an inch each week. It’s best to water in the mornings or evenings before the sun has risen.
  • Warm-season grass goes dormant in the winter months, so don’t assume that brown-colored grass is unhealthy. It may, in fact, be very healthy. Consult with a lawn care expert to be sure.
  • Fertilizer treatments should be performed in the spring and if needed, again in the summer. If you use the wrong fertilizer or the right fertilizer at the wrong time, you could end up burning your plants, hurting your lawn, or disrupting your soil’s pH levels, which is particularly problematic for your warm-season grass.

Some of these lawn treatments can be tricky, which is why we recommend calling in the experts who are well-versed in lawn health.

 

Lawn mowing: DIY or hire a professional?

When it comes to properly maintaining your lawn, it’s hard to determine when to hire a professional or when to “do it yourself.” Though we highly recommend TruGreen for professional lawn care service, they do not specialize in landscape maintenance, so that means they don’t offer lawn mowing services. We breakdown the pros and cons to lawn mowing yourself vs. hiring a pro:

DIY

  • Lawn mowing is considered a landscaping service and is, therefore, not included in a professional lawn care plan. Instead of hiring another company, your best bet is to do it yourself.
  • When mowing your lawn yourself, just remember to use safety precautions and not cut your grass blades too short. This can hurt or destroy your lawn or lead to weeds.

Hire

If you’re part of the 42% of Americans who like mowing their lawn, then we encourage you to keep doing it. Just make sure you follow all safety precautions so you don’t join the 24% of Americans who have been injured by lawn mowing.
