Another TruGreen Guy
We get lots of comments from other lawn care professionals here, sometimes we approve them sometimes we just delete them. Believe it or not they aren’t always “Family Friendly.” It seems like we get at least one comment from Trugreen employees per month and yesterday we received this from a person who claimed to be a Trugreen sales person. I guess I don’t completely disagree with everything he says but I certainly would take issue with a couple of his claims.
I know one thing for sure, employees of Trugreen, whether they are lawn techs, sales people or managers work about as hard as anybody does at any job ANYWHERE. It’s a production driven system and a great career path. In the past I’ve applauded Trugreen for introducing their own “Tru Natural” program. As they say, “a rising tide raises all ships.”
I’m acquainted with more than a few people who either work at Trugreen now or have in the past. Heck, I even worked there for a brief period of time back in 1996. Yes, it’s true the Trugreen products and programs do work. When the program is delivered appropriately it works very well. There are hundreds of thousands of happy Trugreen customer’s out there and they continue to be the world wide leader in lawn care. I just happen to think we can do the same exact thing, create healthy turf, without using so many chemicals and pesticides.
I guess I just don’t know why their employee’s keep sending me messages!

I am a door-to-door sales rep. for Trugreen, so I see at least 100 lawns per day. I speak from experience when I say that 100% organic lawns look like crap. They’re full of weeds because there is no effective organic weed killer in existence. Yet, people will pay through the nose for the stuff simply because it’s labeled “organic”.
It’s so stupid.
Trugreen products actually work. Yeah, they use chemicals, but so what? There are chemicals in everything, everywhere. The human body is made up of millions of chemicals. What’s the big deal?
