Many people are amazed with my lawn, rose bushes, and flowering perennials. Over the years neighbors and friends have asked, "What Are Your Secrets"? Lawn is turf type cool season fescue.
Over the next couple of months I am going to try share my tidbits, suggestions, and best products. Please avoid going off topic and posted any pictures or non related information. This is intended to be short and sweet messages, so others can easily refer and not get bogged down on filler information.
For the month of March, it was abnormally warm early on which required crabgrass preventer to be out done earlier than usual, followed by with some snow last week, but late Spring is back starting this Saturday with temps going to the mid 70s, nearly 15' above normal and then above normal temps for the next 10 days.
First application is fortunately already down so I know I'm covered from those already warm days. 2nd application will follow in 90 days.

This weekend I will be needing to cut my grass for the 2nd time this season. I like to catch it for a clean look and really have no choice given the thickness of the grass. Mowing height is 3.5".
I have already been spot treating weeds as needed.
