When we moved to Columbia, the home we purchased had a well looked after lawn. They had been using Trugreen. We picked up the contract and have been well pleased with the result. Our serviceman told us it's a 50/50 proposition, each of us doing our part. Well, it has worked beautifully...we have just been named Yard of the Month for October in the Turtle Creek Subdivision. We couldn't be more pleased. Everyone tells us our lawn looks like thick, plush carpet! Some of the best money we spend. When it comes time to sell, there will be no problems with this curb appeal.
