TruGreen Launches #TRUGAMEDAY to Kick off Tailgating Season and Offers Tips to Keep America's Lawns Healthy This Fall

America's number one lawn care provider is offering football fans a chance to show off their team spirit.

Memphis, Tenn (PRWEB) August 28, 2014 - The countdown to football season has begun, and Americans everywhere are gearing up for tailgating, watch parties and friendly football on the lawn. This season, TruGreen, America's number one lawn care provider, is offering football fans a chance to show off their team spirit and win big prizes.

Running through September 21, 2014, TruGreen's #TRUGAMEDAY promotion encourages customers, fans and followers to upload a photo showing their TRU team spirit and share with friends and family via Facebook. Entrants will be entered to win one weekly prize ($750 value) that will be chosen at random. They can receive additional entries for sharing with friends. At the end of week 4, one grand prize winner will receive a TruGreen Ultimate Game Day Package with all the items needed to throw a game day watching party worthy of their favorite team ($1200 value).

"There is nothing better than a friendly backyard football game on a crisp fall morning and showing your true team spirit by cheering on your favorite team," said John Hasselle, TruGreen Marketing Manager. "Whether it's NFL, college or Friday night high school games, we believe the start of the football season is always reason to celebrate."

"Fall isn't all about football, though. Fall is also the perfect time to fertilize your lawn," Hasselle continued. "Lawns benefit from a fertilizer applied in the fall to foster new shoot development and recovery from summer stress. A green lawn this fall promotes accumulation of food reserves important to deeper root growth and quicker spring green-up."

The professionals at TruGreen also recommend the following lawn care tips to get your lawn in shape this fall:

Aerate the area. Aeration, creating tiny holes in the lawn, lets water soak in, stimulating root growth and improving fertilizer absorption.

It's OK to go "over"board. Overseeding, the spreading of grass seed over existing grass to increase density or promote growth on bare spots, can vastly improve a lawn's appearance after a rough summer.

If it's still growing, keep mowing. Don't think fall means the end of mowing. To guarantee you have a healthy lawn in the spring, continue to mow regularly while the turf is actively growing.

Don't leave the leaves. Falling leaves are a colorful reminder that fall is in the air, but leaving layers lying around can suffocate your lawn. It's best to either remove the fallen leaves or mulch them with a mulching mower. You can compost the leaves you collect and use them to nourish plants and shrubs, which also reduces the impact on your local landfill.
