Common Weed Control Mistakes
Weed control is essential for maintaining a healthy lawn. But even the most diligent homeowners can make mistakes that allow weeds to take over. Here are some of the most common weed control mistakes and how to avoid them, and if you’re looking for an Atlanta lawn care company to keep your lawn looking its best, contact Simply Green Lawn Care.
Not Mowing Enough
Mowing your lawn on a regular basis is one of the best ways to keep weeds at bay. But if you’re not mowing often enough, weeds will have a chance to take over. Aim to mow your lawn at least once a week, and more often if necessary.
Not Mowing High Enough
When you do mow, be sure to set the blade high enough. If you cut your grass too short, it will be more susceptible to damage and weeds. The ideal height for most lawn grasses is 3-4 inches.
Not Watering Deeply or Infrequently
Deep, infrequent watering is the best way to water your lawn. If you water too often or not deeply enough, your lawn will be more susceptible to weeds. Water your lawn deeply and less often to encourage deep rooting.
Not Fertilizing or Aerating
Fertilizing your lawn is important for maintaining a healthy lawn that can compete with weeds. Be sure to fertilize at least once a year, and more often if necessary. You should also aerate your lawn. Aerating your lawn helps improve drainage and allows nutrients and water to reach the roots of your grass.

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.
