Here at Turf Shield Lawn Care, we’re all about providing top-notch professional lawn care services for our customers. We take pride in serving our community any way we can. Usually that means fertilizing lawns, controlling undesirable weeds, getting rid of fire ants and other annoying lawn pests, or protecting trees and shrubs from damage and disease. But occasionally, when given the opportunity, serving the community means giving something back to those who have given us so much to be grateful for. That’s why we are proud to announce that we will be joining Project EverGreen and their GreenCare for Troops initiative.
Project EverGreen is a national non-profit organization that is committed bringing communities together through lawn care-based projects. Their philosophy is that by leading and supporting the creation, renovation and revitalization of managed recreational and athletic green spaces, together we can make the world a little bit healthier and happier for everyone.
Project EverGreen launched the GreenCare for Troops program 10 years ago. Their original mission was to provide complimentary landscaping and lawn care services for the families of active duty military personnel as a way of saying “thanks for your service”. In addition to active military personnel, the program was also intended to serve and post 9/11 disabled veterans. By taking care of the basic yard and landscaping needs like mowing, edging, small tree and shrub care, fertilization and more, GreenCare for Troops hopes to provide safe and green areas for these families to enjoy without doing any of the heavy lifting required.
It is an honor for us to participate in such a rewarding program with a partner like Project EverGreen. It’s just a small token of our appreciation for the service men and women who have done and continue to do so much to keep us safe and secure.
