Winterize your lawn equipment!
As we enter into the chilly holiday months ahead, it’s time to start getting your lawn equipment back into the shed, garage or indoor space for safe keeping. Safe keeping means protecting your equipment so it’s usable next spring! Your lawn equipment will benefit from some TLC before they hibernate for the winter months ahead. Here are a few tips to get you going on cleaning and prepping your equipment. Get started now and you will be thankful you did when everything works perfect next spring!
- Drain oil from all of your equipment. When any tool or machine that uses oil is not being used for a long time, it can cause the oil to get sludgy which will make the engine not work as well as it should, or at all.
- Replace broken, old or missing parts. Make sure your equipment is in tip top shape before storing it away for the season.
- Check your fuel filters, you will most likely have to replace them. Having a dirty fuel filter will only make your equipment harder to maintain in the future.
- Get rid of the dirt and rust. Cleaning up your mower is so important before you store it. The amount of dirt, grass, etc that get’s in and around it can ruin your equipment if not properly cleaned before storing.
Hope these helpful tips will get you started on storing your equipment this winter!

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.
