Spring is coming!
We have had a mixed bag of weather over the winter, snow, ice, multi storms and some really hot days helped by some warm winds pushing hot air up from The Azores, making the outdoor temperature almost tropical. Balmy for sure.
We are not out of the woods yet, weather wise so care must be taken not to rush into sowing grass seed for example. March and April can be cruel months, often with very cold winds and plenty of rain to boot.
If you engage a lawn treatment or care company, don't let them scarify until the lawns have natural growth to recover from the process. Their advice of scarifying in December - end February is simply wrong and cannot be condoned, as it is technically incorrect.
That way, you have a complete choice how you proceed with your lawns this spring time. Best get that lawn mower cleaned off and fired up as you are going to need it shortly.
