Noon Turf Care’s founders and principals Christopher and Matthew Noon donate a full year of complimentary lawn care for the silent auction at the “A Concert for Calle” fundraiser.
When the two founders of Noon Turf Care, Chris and Matt Noon heard of a sick little girl in their community that desperately needed funds to help pay for her care and the research of her rare and incurable disease they jumped on the opportunity to help. Tom Graf and his band “Aged Inventory” collaborated with the financial firm Standish to play a fundraiser show and Noon Turf Care was thrilled to help by donating a complimentary season of lawn care for the silent auction portion of it. The concert was a huge success and hundreds of people attended to raise the funds needed for cancer research. Principals of Noon Turf Care Chris and Matt Noon donate to dozens of these types of auctions per year to help raise awareness and funds for very important non-federally funded cancer research charities to aid the ones that need the most help.
“The concert and fundraiser ‘A Concert for Calle’ was a huge success and we were just happy to be able to lend a helping hand. Tom Graf of Standish did a tremendous job organizing such a successful event for Calle.” Says Noon Turf Care’s President, Chris Noon.

You spend precious time and money making your lawn look perfect, but in a matter of days, lawn pests can undo all your hard work. Common lawn pests like chinch bugs and mole crickets can turn your lush green lawn into a disaster with yellow patches and dead grass. However, it doesn’t have to be that way. If you suspect something is eating away at your grass, try a home test to see if one of the many common lawn pests is infiltrating your yard. A bucket of soapy water poured over a patch of your lawn will irritate the skin of bugs and bring them to the surface. Once you determine the cause, try a treatment plan to get rid of the pests. Of course, if you have a bigger problem on your hands call in the professionals..
Remember to take precautions when using at home pesticides and chemicals. They are often not safe for pets and may irritate a child’s skin, and yours, if contact is made. Always use protective clothing when spraying chemicals. Keep pets and humans away from treated areas for at least 24 hours.
These simple tricks can help keep your lawn healthy and free of pests. Have a recurring problem? For a stress free way of eliminating bugs and keeping them away, call Noon Turf Care and have us routinely check and treat for problems.
Noon Turf Care’s CFO and management team of 12 attended the Green Systems Annual Software conference where she was the keynote speaker. Stephanie Lee tells her inspiring life story where she overcame adversity and many challenges throughout her personal life and professional career to get to where she is today. She explains how she started at Noon Turf Care as an administrative assistant when Noon Turf was a small startup company with only 6 employees and worked her way up to CFO in 5 years where the company now employs over 50 professionals.
Lee was so successful early on at Noon Turf Care that owners Matt and Chris Noon offered to assist her in paying for her undergraduate degree to retain her employment at their company long-term. This past year Lee was named the CFO of the year by the Boston Business Journal.
Lee finished her speech by saying “The advice I can give younger professionals looking to work their way up in a company is as difficulties arise, just remember you’re stronger than you think you are. Never use the setbacks and losses in your life as a crutch.”
Noon Turf Care and its team spent 3 days at the conference attending software training classes, networking and learning new techniques they could apply to further improve their company. Everyone had a great time learning new software updates, team building and enjoying the fantastic Florida weather.

Many homeowners are intimidated by the prospect of pruning. Knowing that improper pruning can lead to a sick or otherwise compromised tree or shrub can be too much for some people, especially after they have invested so much in their landscape.
No matter how scary the idea of pruning is, it should be a practice you get into with comfort and regularity because a well-pruned plant is a healthy plant. Pruning improves the flow of moisture and nutrients through the plant, as well as allows thriving areas to receive most of the nutrition while dead or dying areas are removed from the plant, according to lawn care agents.
Pruning is one of the best practices you can perform on the plants in your garden and landscape. Lawn care experts say becoming proficient at pruning plants just takes experience and the right tools. Here are four basic tools that will take care of pretty much all your garden pruning tasks. You should keep these tips in mind when selecting your hand pruners, loppers, shears and saws:
- Don’t be cheap when it comes to investing in pruning tools. Good quality tools stay sharp longer, cut easier and will last longer, paying for themselves in the long run.
- Keep your tools sharpened to make cutting easier and to produce clean cuts that heal faster. A sharper pruning tool also puts less stress on your hand, according to lawn care professionals.
- Keep your pruning tools clean and clean the blades in between trees or shrubs. One pruning cut on a diseased branch can spread disease throughout your garden. Wipe the blade clean with rubbing alcohol. Don’t ever put your pruning shears away without cleaning them first.
