It’s Time to Lower the Blades
The first day of spring is just a couple of days away, and already we have been experiencing some of the signs of the season in recent weeks. We love this time of year at Simply Green Lawn Care, located in Lilburn, GA. Flowers are in bloom and the sun is shining. We wrote recently about about our spring lawn care checklist, but another thing we should be paying attention to is the length we are cutting our grass. Now is the time to scalp those lawns!
So how do you scalp a lawn properly, and why?
- Firstly, make sure you have warm season grass, like bermuda or zoysia. Cool season grasses, like fescue, will not benefit from cutting it shorter this time of year.
- Before you start, make sure all of the leftover frost from winter is gone (this will not be a problem this year). If frost still exists, you could actually do more harm than good.
- You might wonder, just how short you need to cut for it to be considered scalping. Put your mowing blades on its lowest level to efficiently scalp your lawn.
- The act of scalping your lawn removes dry and dormant turf, and can actually help prevent weed problems during the coming months.

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.
