I’ll be raking for the first time this spring tomorrow (4/7). We had snow on the lawn until this week. We also had some very strong winds and rain that led to many tree branches falling. The yard needs a lot of work. I’ll be raking for days and will likely also mulch because there is a half-off sale locally. Will need to swap all of the snow removal gear with the lawn equipment. Then the patio furniture, etc. I also need to get some lettuce started in the bed, so that will need some work later this week.

Time to get the ice packs, heating pads, and Advil ready, as well as the rakes and shovels!

Way of schedule here for any previous seasons. Hard to believe how much things of come alive already and it’s only the first week of April.

The lawn has never been this green so early in the season. Already on my third cut.

I like your posts/videos, but where do you live? I'm in LI, NY so my situation might be different.

Our temps have been typical, but we are expecting some strangely warm weather next week, maybe even hitting 80F at end of week. As much as I can’t wait each year for Spring I’m not a fan of going from 50 to 80 degrees suddenly.

Also, no rain. It’s too early to turn on the irrigation system as we could easily freeze again before the end of May.

On a positive note I got 20 2 cu.ft. bags of premium mulch at our local Lowes. Might pick up some more. $2.00/bag.
