I got a lawn assessment from TruGreen and their report indicated that
I have layered soil--what is it? They did the free inspection while I
was at work. They also identified two invasive weeds. Not bad.
I would be more interested in the 2 soil types. "Layered" is
self-explanatory for most. And, I would be interested in the soil depth of
both layers. And, if the depth of those layers are generally the same
throughout the area of the lawn.
The "invasive" terminology is what raises a flag for me. Invasive if the
lawn is not mowed regulary, or invasive irregardless of cutting the lawn
yea, thanks. They want $40 to throw fertilizer on my lawn once a
month--the call it an application. What I really wanted was that lawn
inspection because I wasn't sure if I had fungus or the lawn was just
underwatered. I can't tell the difference. That and they also
identified some weeds, spurge and oxalis (that weird little three leaf
clover-looking weed). It was good to read about them.
I'm not signing up for their service but I took advantage of the free
lawn inspection. At least now I can stop throwing fungicide and
concentrate on watering, weed removal and mowing.

40$ to put fertilizer on your lawn? I would take that deal, but I have
an acre to fertilize. How big is your lawn?
A bag of weed and feed fertilizer costs around $25-$30 for enough to
cover 15,000 sq ft of lawn.
Figure your property acreage, minus the footprints of the house,
driveway, and other non-grass areas, and see which is cheaper.
