Two Weeks Until Spring
Up here in Chicagoland, we’re getting a bit of snow today, but in just 14 days, temperatures will be reaching into the 60s with rain and thunder storms.
While there may not be a gradual transition from winter to spring, it won’t be late. Spring’s official date will hold true, and by the end of this month you’ll see some grass.
If you need a new mower this season, now’s a good time to start researching. Check the most current ratings and reviews at Mowers Direct.
Springtime is also a great opportunity to do some overseeding. Using an overseeder in springtime when the temperatures level out in the mid 50s is very beneficial to thickening your lawn.
Use a mulching kit with your mower on a higher setting through the first part of the summer and heavily water your lawn once per week to help the seeds take well.
