The Art of Mowing
Are you struggling with a lawn that has turned brown within days? Are you worried you might have a fungus or insects? The solution might be something much simpler – how you are mowing! There is truly an art to mowing your lawn. When Simply Green assess our clients lawn we ask a few questions, “When was the last time you mowed your lawn and how often do you mow your lawn?” Most people will mow their lawn every 14-15 days and see an entire lawn turn brown a few days after they move, if done incorrectly. The most common reason for lawns to turn brown or lose their color is because of improper mowing which can be frequency of mowing, improper mowing height and dull mower blades. Key points to remember: Cut, not tear, rule of thirds, change directions and height matters. (see image below)
If mowing isn’t the issue, your lawn could be effected moisture, disease or insects. However normally these issues are localized to parts of the lawn not the entire lawn. The exception would be a drought or heat wave. In addition, this season we have seen disease in Zoysia turf which includes Large Patch Fungus and Rust fungus which usually affects section of the lawn not the entire 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.
