5 Tips for a Healthy Winter Lawn
It’s unseasonably warm this December, which makes it hard to sit back and watch your lawn wilt and turn brown. Isn’t there something you can do? If you want a lush spring lawn, winter lawn care is a must. What’s on our winter landscape checklist?
Winter means dormant grass, which in turn means your lawn is more susceptible to injury and disease. Keep your yard looking great without weakening grass blades. Your final mow of the year should cut off no more than one-third of the grass blade.
Stick to the Plan
75 degree Christmases are a gift to Georgia gardeners, right? Only if you have a lot of self-control! Keep your lawn healthy this winter by staying away from lawn mowers, fertilizer, and edge trimmers.
Don’t Mow Wet Grass
Put a sticky note on your mower handle if you have to. Early spring means lots of showers, but mowing a wet lawn may damage roots, kill new grass, and leave some serious divots in your yard.
Keep off the Grass
In case we do get another Atlanta ice storm this year, remember: if you walk on frozen grass, you’ll damage the blades. Stick to the sidewalks instead.
If you’re done with winter landscape maintenance like lawn care and pruning trees and woody shrubs, it’s time to think ahead.

Hello, I didn't catch my service techs name today, but wanted to let you know what a great job he did today, please pass this along. His service was wonderful and he was very polite, I truly appreciate it. Keep up the good work! And thank you!
I have been with these guys for one whole season. 99.9% of the weeds are gone. The grass has never been so green. They have lived up to their name.
My lawn looks awesome and I have had neighbors walking their dogs tell me the same! Thanks Simply Green!
Simply Green always does an excellent job and are very customer oriented. The technicians are more knowledgeable than those of other companies I have tried.
Please let your staff that serviced my lawn aeration and fertilization yesterday know that they did an EXCELLENT JOB! My lawn is doing better than it ever has. And because of them and the rest of the techs that come out to my house, I'll remain a loyal customer of Simply Green. Great job!
I just had another comment this morning on how good our fescue lawn looks, which happens several times a week. I walked out in our back yard this AM and couldn't believe it was the same yard as what I dealt with last year. We have a good lawn maintenance crew that takes care of mowing and edging, and we have a good company that takes care of weeding, feeding, and shrubbery & trees. I enjoy telling friends and neighbors about your service. Thank you and keep up the good work!
Happened to be home and Ben was treating the yard. He took meticulous care in the treatment. Please convey my thanks to him.
