When selling your home, making money is as important as saving money!
When my husband and I were out looking to purchase a home a few years back, one of the things I checked for was a well maintained yard. Personally, I did not want to spend a lot of money on lawn repair, I wanted to move to a house with nice thick grass, limited weeds, and established beds around the home. We were fortunate to find a great house that had all of these things, plus it was really clean and had nice upgrades on the inside.
Recently TruGreen commissioned a Lawn Lifestyles Survey that revealed that the majority of Americans surveyed (72 percent) said “it takes seconds to form a first impression about the outside of a home” and those impressions take root, as over one-third (38 percent) said “once I’ve formed an opinion about a home’s appearance, it is hard to change my mind.” In fact, more than half of Americans surveyed (53 percent) said “the quality of the homeowner’s lawn can tell you a lot about the quality of the home overall.”
Invest in your lawn ongoing and improve home value.

*TruGreen’s Lawn Lifestyles National Survey was fielded from January 3 – 9, 2013, using the field services of ORC International (Opinion Research Corporation). The online omnibus survey was conducted among a nationally representative sample of Americans aged 18+ (n=2,000), with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.2 percentage points at the 95 percent confidence level. For questions that were asked among homeowners who are personally responsible for making decisions regarding their lawn care (n=829), the margin of error is plus or minus 3.4 percentage points at the 95 percent confidence level.
