I used TruGreen for a year and my lawn looked awful in the front yard so I discontinued the service. I had a horticulture expert look at my lawn to see what was up with it. The centipede grass was actually DEAD! The lawn was killed by Mole Crickets. Now, why would TruGreen treat weeds and not tell me the true situation? I would leave notes for the technician where he left his hang tag sign that he had visited while I was not at home. I wanted to ask him some questions so I left him a note on my door to please call me so I could be there next time. The next time he left his hang tag note at the back door instead of the front! He probably saw my note so he used a door he had never left anything on before! I called the number for questions. Well, they know nothing and cannot help you at all.
I also had the Horticultural treatment for my shrubs. Well, my Camellias have a disease so bad it isn't funny at all.
My advice is DO NOT use TruGreen! It is a total rip off!
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
