TRUTCO is unmatched by any other lawn care service or company in Jacksonville.
With our monthly lawn care service we will prepare treatments on site, right at your home, to make sure your turf gets the attention it needs to look its very best. The “pre-printed” approach that many of our competitors use has led to poor customer satisfaction, poor results, and has given the entire lawn pest control industry a bad name. We give our customers personal attention and are the most responsive lawn care service in Jacksonville.
Each month, we will mix a treatment based on turf color, thickness, insect populations, disease presence, weather conditions, time of year, and weed varieties. We will contact you before each treatment and use your feedback in the next days application. Listening to our customers helps us solve and prevent problems fast, while we are there, the first time.
Our lawn care programs are all inclusive with straight forward pricing.
Our lawn care service includes everything needed to maintain your lawn for one low straightforward price. Unlike our competitors, we don’t charge extra for necessary insecticide, fungicide, crabgrass, or sedge treatments. We charge less per application, show up more frequently, and contact you before each service. Because we are a small Jacksonville based company, we are able to better train and empower our lawn care technicians to evaluate and make decisions in the field regarding what lawn treatment will be administered that day.
It is not only our mission to make your lawn look great, but also to be easy to do business with. Trutco’s monthly lawn care service has no contracts. Our service is results driven. We don’t make false promises, and long term relationships are our goal. We will always tell you the truth and we are going to do whatever we can to keep you 100% happy.

In february we are applying another pre-emergent weed barrier for crabgrass prevention this year.
It has been a very cold winter for your lawn. We have had several freezes and nearly all lawns are dormant. A dormant lawn is not strong enough to prevent weeds naturally and we are applying another pre-emergent weed barrier as a result. This application must be applied before soil temperatures reach 72 degrees and crabgrass begins to germinate. Next month we are able to resume fertilization and will begin to restore color to your turf.
In addition to the pre-emergent weed barrier, we will continue to treat active large patch and active insects during each monthly lawn care service. Fungicides must be reapplied every 28 days. Insects are active year round but the threat of damage is greatly reduced in the winter. Dormant, slow growing turf is not a very good food source. Reducing irrigation is the best prevention for large patch. You can expect your lawn to lose color this time of year. This is a natural part of your lawn’s life cycle.
Continue watering once each week, and water each zone for 45 minutes. Watering for longer durations (45 minutes – 1 hour, rather than 20-30 minutes per zone) will encourage deeper root growth. Mowing at 4 inches will also encourage a deeper root system. We are always here to help you troubleshoot any issues that may arise. Good cultural practices are going to prevent common problems from occurring in your lawn.

If you live in Jacksonville, you know proper watering & regular mowing practices are critical to keep your lawn healthy and green.
Here are some basic tips to help you maintain your turf this fall.
If you have not already, reduce your irrigation to only water one time each week for the fall. Each zone should run for approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour. The objective is to put out 3/4″ to 1″ of water per irrigation. Check our links for up to date weather and rainfall for your zip code. Proper watering is critical to keep your lawn healthy so adjust your irrigation with rainfall and fungus presence. Be sure to check coverage regularly because a uniform spray is very important. JEA offers free irrigation assessments for Jacksonville residents. If your lawn had dry or hot spots, then it may be necessary to hand water to account for any weakness in your irrigation system.
Proper mowing is the largest contribution a homeowner will make to a successful weed management program. Remember to mow high; 4″ lawns are always GREENER, prevent more weeds, and have stronger roots than 3″ lawns. Maintaining your lawn at 4″ will enhance our pre-emergent weed control applications, improve turf density, and shade necessary light from reaching the soil for weed germination.
