Take a look at that Forsythia over there, it’s trying to tell you something…

Spring is finally here!!


A sure sign that spring has finally arrived is when the forsythia bushes bloom and take on an awesome yellow color.  Even though the forsythia’s great vibrant yellow color only lasts a few short weeks, here are a few lawn and landscape related special events that it’s bloom usually signifies.


  • Soil temperatures are beginning to warm above 50 degrees+

  • Cool season turf grasses are finally beginning to grow.

  • Perennial broadleaf weeds, especially dandelions, are coming out of dormancy and are springing back to life!

  • Crabgrass seed will begin germinating in open, bare soil areas in the very near future.  Try to apply a grassy weed preventer at this time.

  • The odds of accumulating snow and/or sub-freezing temperatures are becoming less likely to occur from this point forward.  Winter is over!!

  • Lawn and landscape clean-ups, dethatching and core aeration should be well underway.

  • Irrigation systems are being opened/turned-on for the season.

  • Even though turf grass seed should be ideally planted in the late summer/early fall for best results, if planting in the spring, now would be the time to do so (next 4 weeks +/-).
