Saves You Money

In Florida, we know that keeping lawns green in the summer can be a losing battle. While there is a good amount of rainfall in Florida throughout the summer season, there’s the heat to contend with. Homeowners still spend too much money watering their lawns. Hydretain is designed to control and eliminate dry spots in your lawn. When the soil becomes compacted, the roots of your grass don’t receive enough water to keep the lawn healthy. Applying Hydretain to your lawn provides water to the deepest roots of the grass, keeping it hydrated even in the driest times of the year. This reduces the amount of water required to hydrate your lawn, which saves money.

Better Looking Lawn

Between the grass blades and the soil, a layer of thatch often builds in your lawn. Thatch consists of dirty, almost dead looking grass, roots, and organic debris. While it may not be visually attractive, some amounts of thatch are healthy and good for your grass. Hydretain helps keep the thatch layer properly moisturized. It’s also true that you can overwater your lawn, which damages your grass. When there is too much water, fungus and algae grow. Hydretain helps prevent this to promote the overall health of your lawn.

Environmentally Friendly

In a world where we’re making strides to better our environment, Simply Green does our best to use green landscaping practices. Hydretain is an environmentally friendly product. It is 100% biodegradable and contains no toxins that are harmful to the environment.

For information on how to get Hydretain for your lawn, please contact Simply Green. It’s time to take the next step towards a healthier and better looking lawn.

Tips For A Better Lawn This Winter!

Winter lawn care is essential for a healthy, gorgeous lawn in the warmer months. So how can you keep your lawn healthy this winter? Preparation is key.

Taking Care of Your Lawn Equipment

Of course, you want to make sure all of your equipment is ready for winter storage. With proper care, your equipment will be ready to go when spring arrives. Remove debris from any blades, sharpen and apply a thin layer of oil to prevent corrosion. Drain fuel tanks, change the oil and take care of any rusted spots.

Don’t forget about your sprinkler system. Frozen pipes can be devastating to your system. In general, it’s a good idea to check a frost line map. This will determine if you are in an area where the ground will get cold enough for the buried pipes to freeze. If you are unsure, it’s always better to be safe than sorry. In order to prevent the pipes in your sprinkler system from bursting, and your valves and fittings from freezing, you’ll want to remove the water from the entire system.

Keep Off the Grass

Winter lawn care is essential to a luscious and gorgeous lawn in warmer weather. During the colder months, your lawn is more sensitive to diseases and even injury. Don’t be tempted to pull out the edge trimmers or mower during the winter. This can damage the blades, root systems, and new growth.

Simply Green can help you get the lawn of your dreams, regardless of what color your thumb is. Contact us today for more information or get a free estimate! Check out more on our blog about your winter lawn equipment,

New Year’s Resolutions for Gardeners

If you’re a gardener, and you’re thinking of making a few New Year’s resolutions, why not make a few that apply to your favorite hobby? Resolving to make 2017 your lawn’s most beautiful year ever is easy to accomplish if you follow these simple tips!

simply green gardening care
Don’t over mow: In the winter, the grass is very susceptible to damage and disease. Your grass is dormant in the winter, which means it really doesn’t grow very much. So, when it looks like you shouldn’t mow, don’t! Keep the lawn healthy by giving it a break: Don’t mow, fertilize or edge.

Don’t mow wet grass, either: When spring thaws, we get a lot of rain. Make sure to allow the lawn to dry before you mow it. If you mow a wet lawn, you can damage its roots and even kill new grass. You could leave some ruts in your lawn, too, which never looks good. So, don’t get too excited when you see the green grass after the rains. Just let it dry.

Don’t walk on frozen grass: If you get a winter storm, stay off the grass. When the blades freeze, you can damage them by walking on them and they’ll break. Stay on your sidewalk if you need to head outside.

Think ahead: Plan your winter landscape maintenance in the fall and prune your trees and your shrubs before it gets too cold.

If you find that you’ve forgotten to perform fall maintenance tasks or if you find your lawn turning brown, contact a professional! Simply Green can help assist you in your New Year’s lawn resolutions. Read more on our blog for tips for a healthy winter lawn, or check full list of our services as we head into the New Year!

5 Tips for a Healthy Winter Lawn

toddler walking on grassIt’s unseasonably warm this December, which makes it hard to sit back and watch your lawn wilt and turn brown. Isn’t there something you can do? If you want a lush spring lawn, winter lawn care is a must. What’s on our winter landscape checklist?

Mow Wisely

Winter means dormant grass, which in turn means your lawn is more susceptible to injury and disease. Keep your yard looking great without weakening grass blades. Your final mow of the year should cut off no more than one-third of the grass blade.

Stick to the Plan

75 degree Christmases are a gift to Georgia gardeners, right? Only if you have a lot of self-control! Keep your lawn healthy this winter by staying away from lawn mowers, fertilizer, and edge trimmers.

Don’t Mow Wet Grass

Put a sticky note on your mower handle if you have to. Early spring means lots of showers, but mowing a wet lawn may damage roots, kill new grass, and leave some serious divots in your yard.

Keep off the Grass

In case we do get another Atlanta ice storm this year, remember: if you walk on frozen grass, you’ll damage the blades. Stick to the sidewalks instead.

Plan Ahead

If you’re done with winter landscape maintenance like lawn care and pruning trees and woody shrubs, it’s time to think ahead.

Is your thumb as brown as your grass? Simply Green helps homeowners and business owners cultivate healthy lawns. Contact us to schedule an appointment, and keep an eye on our blog for seasonal lawn care tips in Atlanta.
