Happy August! With high heats still continuing and scattered storms throughout the summer, your grass is most likely growing at an incredible pace. Do you feel like you need to mow every day? This could mean that you aren’t mowing the most effective way possible. Did you know? There is an actual “Art of Mowing”. In today’s post, we have included a few #trustytips to help you make the most out of mowing your lawn.
Cut your lawn and try to avoid tearing your grass. Mower blades must be sharp or instead of cutting your lawn you will be tearing your lawn. If your leaf blades have brown tips 2-3 days after you mow, could be your mower blades need to be sharpened.
Remember it’s all about the “Rule of thirds.” Mow your lawn at least every 7 days in the growing season. Never mow more than one-third of the grass leaf at a time.
To catch or not to catch? If you are mowing at the correct height every 7 days, you do not need to catch your grass clippings. Clippings contain beneficial nutrients for your lawn and do not build harmful thatch.
Change it up! Change your mowing direction each time you mow. This ensures a more even cut and grass blades will be less likely to develop into a set pattern.
Mowing Height matters. Mowing height is extremely important. Know your grass type and mow at the correct height, depending on the time of the year.

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.
