Lawn Maintenance in Minneapolis

The dramatic weather swings of the Twin Cities can cause problems for your outdoor spaces, leaving your yard sodden or soggy during the warmer months. Frequently homeowners who maintain their lawns complain of weeds taking over their yards and gardens. The type of weeds that thrive in compacted soil can easily take over the landscape of your lawn without proper intervention.

The long winters in Minneapolis can leave lawns riddled with snow mold that spread and grow before the snow thaws. Luckily, the fungus is seldom severe and is relatively simple to resolve. Critters like moles and other underground diggers may wreak havoc on your lawn in the form of dead patches of grass and earthen mounds.

Children and pets can be detrimental to your yard too. High traffic lawns can cause the soil to become compacted killing the grass. However, why else have green spaces if your family can’t enjoy it? TruGreen specializes in knowing the environment in Minneapolis and how the weather affects your green areas and how to improve or repair the damage done by weather, diseases, pests, or excessive use.

Michael Chambers

I've been a TruGreen customer for several years and have always received efficient and professional service. My yard looks great and I'm very happy with their service.

            

Megan Flink

Great service initially, however after a few treatments I ran into some customer service issues. There were multiple times when someone failed to show up. After calling my local office and speaking to a manager things have been running smoothly since. Overall happy with my service, but have had some problems in the past.

            

Bill Haley

I am pleased with the service. My lawn went from about 85% weeds to about 15%. Unfortunately due to the drought this year and the water restrictions I am not able to water the lawn enough to keep it green so the lawn is turning a little brown. However, I'm very pleased with the amount of weeds that have disappeared.

            

Jared Dillon

I always get a courtesy call when service is due and they always come on the scheduled day. All of the people that come are very nice and professional. Very happy with my local service and would highly recommend.

Lawn Aerating Minneapolis

The winter months in Minnesota can cause serious problems for your lawn like fungus, thick thatching, or compacted soil. TruGreen understands the challenges Minnesotans face when maintaining their lawns.

Thatching is a term used to describe an accumulation of debris; it’s the layer of dead grass, roots, and dirt that collect and damage living grass. Thatching produces bald spots in your yard by keeping the grass from growing deep roots. Almost every lawn will need de-thatching annually, the long winters in the area may require more frequent de-thatching depending on how quickly the grass reaches a thickness of one-half inch.

A standard method in troubleshooting many lawn problems is aeration. Aeration allows water and air to reach the lawn thatch. An aerated yard is characterized by tiny holes giving the grass an opportunity to develop deep, hearty roots.

If the following issues describe your lawn, then your yard may need aeration:

  • A sodden yard which is consistently wet when you touch or step on it. Also, thatch may dry grass quickly causing it to be yellow and die.
  • New homes are often landscaped using topsoil which builds a superficial layer of grass with exposed roots planted on top of the first lawn.
  • Your yard is a high traffic area. Frequent lawn use by children and pets can lead to compacted soil which can kill your grass.

TruGreen trusts the research of horticulturists and agronomists to maintain beautiful green spaces in Minneapolis. Knowing the right time to aerate or de-thatch your lawn is vital to optimizing your yard.

Lawn Fertilization Minneapolis

Minneapolis is a city with a wealth of natural resources. The water-rich resources of thirteen lakes, wetlands, and the occasional waterfall make the soil in Minneapolis unique and an ideal biome for many plants, flowers, and tree species.

The soil in Minneapolis needs specialized fertilization. The universal treatments for more temperate areas won’t provide enough nutrients for the grass to blossom into a yard of oxygen producing grass. TruGreen provides EPA approved products applied at just the right point to help your green spaces flourish.
