New Year’s Resolutions for Gardeners
If you’re a gardener, and you’re thinking of making a few New Year’s resolutions, why not make a few that apply to your favorite hobby? Resolving to make 2017 your lawn’s most beautiful year ever is easy to accomplish if you follow these simple tips!
Don’t over mow: In the winter, the grass is very susceptible to damage and disease. Your grass is dormant in the winter, which means it really doesn’t grow very much. So, when it looks like you shouldn’t mow, don’t! Keep the lawn healthy by giving it a break: Don’t mow, fertilize or edge.
Don’t mow wet grass, either: When spring thaws, we get a lot of rain. Make sure to allow the lawn to dry before you mow it. If you mow a wet lawn, you can damage its roots and even kill new grass. You could leave some ruts in your lawn, too, which never looks good. So, don’t get too excited when you see the green grass after the rains. Just let it dry.
Don’t walk on frozen grass: If you get a winter storm, stay off the grass. When the blades freeze, you can damage them by walking on them and they’ll break. Stay on your sidewalk if you need to head outside.
Think ahead: Plan your winter landscape maintenance in the fall and prune your trees and your shrubs before it gets too cold.
If you find that you’ve forgotten to perform fall maintenance tasks or if you find your lawn turning brown, contact a professional! Simply Green can help assist you in your New Year’s lawn resolutions. Read more on our blog for tips for a healthy winter lawn, or check full list of our services as we head into the New 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.
