It is that time of year again, spring! Our green-thumbed friends are busy restoring their gardens and lawns from the winter damage, but soon, crabgrass will be an issue. Between mid-summer and early fall, plants produce thousands of seeds. When the first frost comes, it kills the plants, and those seeds will remain dormant through the winter. When the ground temperature warms up, the seeds begin to grow. This is what causes crabgrass to rapidly grow during the warm summer months. The Simply Green Lawn Care Plus team has put together a short guide to help you prevent crabgrass from spreading, below. Check it out!
- Mow your lawn often to keep the grass a fairly consistent length.
- Crabgrass requires plenty of light to germinate, so keep the grass as thick and long as possible to create shade near the soil surface.
- Cut no more than one-third of the grass blade at one time when mowing.
- For established lawns, water frequently for long periods of time.
- Watering on an irregular schedule and only when needed promotes deeper root growth that is essential to healthy turfgrass.
- Fertilize your grass at least once a year, following the package instructions.

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.
