Customer Support Product Use Statement

Product Use Statement

Families consider their lawn an extension of their home for personal activities and enjoy many benefits from a well-cared lawn. Promoting healthy growth and minimizing damage caused by pests and weeds often requires judicious use of fertilizers and EPA-registered products applied by trained, licensed specialists. TruGreen does not purchase or plan on using seed or any grass that is classified as a Genetically Modified Organism (GMO).

Each year our scientists evaluate products using a "weight of the evidence analysis" to consider risks to our employees, children and pets, and the environment. We consider the following:

  • Registration
    Each product that we use on lawns must be registered with the EPA for use of lawn and landscapes before we evaluate it for TruGreen services.

  • Allergies
    We do not approve products that are known skin sensitizers or that may produce allergic reactions.

  • Carcinogens
    We will not approve products containing known or probable human carcinogens as defined by the U.S. EPA, the National Toxicology Program, or the International Agency for Research in Cancer.

  • Groundwater
    We do not approve products known or thought likely to leach to groundwater when applied to lawns.

The products we approve for company use contain the same ingredients found in lawn care products that tens of millions of homeowners buy annually at lawn and garden outlets. We ensure these products are applied safely according to federal, state and local regulations. The specific products applied to your landscape are detailed on your invoice with each treatment.  Additional health and safety information can be found at the National Pesticide Information Center, a cooperative program of the U.S. EPA and Oregon State University.
