The North Carolina High School Athletic Association has named TruGreen as its preferred lawn care vendor.
The NCHSAA’s partnership with the nation’s largest lawn care company will allow athletic directors, principals and other school officials throughout the state to have consistency in their sports turf programs, meaning the quality of their fields will match the excellent play that takes place on it.
“This partnership is about providing high schools throughout North Carolina with consistency, ensuring each one has a high-quality playing surface,” said Kevin Haddox, TruGreen Region Commercial Sales Manager. “Historically, various organizations, volunteers or even coaches have tried to maintain the state’s athletic fields, but the wide variety of approaches has returned unreliable results. Our proven lawn care methods will be used throughout the state and will guarantee athletic programs have a playing field that is ready for the season ahead.”
TruGreen’s relationship with the NCHSAA will involve the use of TruGreen’s Sports Turf Program. This advanced approach to lawn care uses sophisticated equipment to apply products, sand and other materials needed to promote the existing turf and eliminate weeds, crabgrass and other imperfections in the playing surface.
“We are certainly pleased to add TruGreen to our corporate partner family and look forward to a long and healthy relationship,” said Charlie Adams, executive director of the NCHSAA. “We believe this company will be able to provide some excellent services for our member schools.”
TruGreen has seven branches throughout North Carolina and employs more than 500 across the state.
TruGreen is the largest lawn care company in the world. Combined with our commercial services business unit, TruGreen LandCare, we serve more than 3.4 million residential and commercial customers across the U.S. TruGreen is headquartered in Memphis, Tenn., and services customers from 350 locations across the United States and Canada.
