  • Proper mowing is key to a healthy lawn year round

    With last week’s article focusing on spring fertilization of lawns, this week’s article will continue the discussion with mowing lawns.

    The first mowing, usually in late March, makes the lawn look spring-like and very attractive.  Subsequent regular mowing hardens the grass for drought and heat stresses later on.
