The Art and Science of Mowing the Lawn
Mowing the lawn may have once been the province of bored kids hoping to make a few bucks, but not anymore! If you want your yard to look really great, it’s time to approach mowing like any other great art.
First of all, you need the right tools, and they need to be in good shape. Your lawnmower blades should be sharp and the lawnmower should be in good working order. You’ll need sunscreen and bug spray for yourself, and long pants and good shoes to protect your legs and feet.
How much should you be mowing at one time? That depends on the type of grass you have. In general, cut more during peak growing season. For cool season grasses that means spring and fall; for warm season grasses, that means summer. For best results, never cut more than about a third of the height of the grass at one time. Mowing encourages growth, which requires water, so mow less if you find your area in a drought.
In general you’ll want to mow at least once every seven days. If you find yourself falling behind, don’t hack away too much of the grass height at once. Remember to still follow the “one third” rule, amd just mow more frequently until you catch up. Finally, remember to take care of yourself after you mow. Have a cool drink and a shower, take some allergy medicine if needed, and then enjoy your beautiful lawn!

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.
