    I just received my copy of consumers report and at the last page of the section of goofs, glitches and rip-off there's a picture from trugreen that consumers reports says it's has been computer generated.

    I know you can actually turn a lawn from night to day, it's just hard to believe a so well know company would use this kind of tricks to atract customers, or maybe they don't know!

    I do agree, but having thousand of customers nationwide why do this kind of tricks? when you can actually make it happen for real.

    Trugreen is a marketing company, not a lawncare company. They're all about making that telemarketing sale.

    I rank them right up there with health spas and used car lots.

    I got that flier from TG that was mentioned, I said the same thing to my wife, the lawn was obviously "computer painted"

    IT WAS FLUORESCENT GREEN!

    Trugreen does some of the best cutting around here. Fert apps. might not be great, but they get the job done.
