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 +/-).
