How to Choose the Best Grass for Your Lawn
Planning Your Atlanta Lawn Care
While it’s still cold and wintry here in Atlanta, now is a good time to start planning any upgrades you’d like to make to your landscaping. One of the best ways to ensure your lawn looks its best is to choose the appropriate type of grass for your yard.
- Perennial Ryegrass – Rye has a fine to medium leaf texture and a medium shoot density. It thrives in a wide range of soils but performs best in moist fertile soil. It establishes itself quickly, but has a poor to fair recuperative ability. It tolerates cold well, but does poorly in high heat. Overall, it has a medium level of maintenance required.
- Bermuda – Bermudagrass has a fine to medium leaf texture and a high shoot density. It does well in a wide range of soil types, but it preferes fertile soil. It establishes itself quickly and has an excellent recuperative ability. It does very well in hot weather but poorly in cold temperatures. It tends towards a medium amount of maintenance required.
- Fescue – Fescue has a coarse to medium leaf texture and lower shoot density. It thrives in a wide range of soils. It is fairly fast to establish itself and has a good wear resistance. It does very well in hot weather and performs fairly in cool weather, so it’s generally an excellent grass for Atlanta weather and requires a low to medium amount of effort to stay healthy.
Of course, selecting the proper grass is only the first step. It’s equally important that your new grass is properly cared for. Overseeding, core aeration, water management, and weed control and fertilization are just as important.

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.
