Spring is Near, Start Scalping Your Lawn

It’s still pretty cold outside, in fact, it seems that it is snowing or freezing every other day. Here, at Simply Greenspring is the last thing we are reminded of when we step outside this March. This doesn’t mean that spring lawn care procedures should not be followed though. It’s cold now, but in the coming weeks, we will see the sun begin to shine again and weather will begin to feel like spring. One thing we all need to do in spring, is to start scalping our warm season lawns!

So how do you scalp a lawn properly, and why?

  • Before you start, make sure all of the left over frost from winter is gone. 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.

Have used Simply Green for over a year now for weed control & fertilization. Their service & products have helped improve the appearance & health of my grass in this short time. Taffari has been the technician the last few visits and he is great - super knowledgeable & able to answer my questions. On the last visit Taffari had the service manager reach out on a concern and it was addressed & resolved the same day.
