Tips For Your Lawn This November!
Take advantage of the autumn air and get out in your lawn and spruce it up! In today’s post we have included some wonderful tips from the Simply Green team for you to take advantage of this time and get out and improve your lawn! If it’s a fresh mowing, fertilizing or just need to control those unwanted weeds, we have a few hints to get you moving!
1. Get the rake or blower out of the shed it’s fall! With leaves falling as the seasons change, make sure to remove all leaves from your lawn as it blocks the sunlight from reaching the grass. If you have new tall fescue seedlings best to use a leaf blower instead of a rake. A rake can pull the fescue seedlings out of the ground.
2. Make sure to mow but remember to use the “1/3 rule”. You can mow in the cold weather as long as the grass isn’t wet or has frost. If your fescue needs mowing and seedlings have been up for 3 weeks mow fescue at 3”-3.5” be sure your lawn mower blade is sharp. For warm season turf this is not the time to lower your mower height. Allow your warm season turf to go dormant a little taller than your normal mowing height.
3. Keep your equipment in order. Storing your lawn mower, tools, gardening equipment, etc for the winter months ahead can be a task. Make sure that you drain the mower of gas or add a gas fuel stabilizer like Sta-Bil (follow the instructions on the label) and clean all the equipment to save you time and money come spring.
4. Great time to apply dormant oil also known as horticulture oil to your ornamental trees and shrubs. Horticulture oil suffocates or penetrates the outside cuticle of the pest. Helps control aphids, scales and a host of other plant eating insects. Best to apply when temperatures are between 40-70 degrees F. and no forecasted freezing temperatures for the next 3-4 days. Do not spray on your new pansies!. Read and follow the label.

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.
