A Cooler Spring...

Boy what a difference a year makes, last year at this time it was way too warm and the Bermuda grass was already greening up. This year we've had a couple of warm days but for the most part its been a cool spring. Nonetheless, the days are getting longer and soon spring will have sprung. 

What does this mean for your lawn? It means the Bermuda grass is about to begin greening up and the Fescue lawns will really begin to grow. If you are going to have a pre-emergent put on your lawn I'd try and have it done by April 15th at the latest, and if you want to use Round-Up much sooner than that. A lot of people are in a rush to have it done, but they commonly forget that crabgrass and other summer weeds will not usually emerge until soil temperatures are consistently above 55 degrees Fahrenheit, and by consistently I mean 14-21 days of above 55 degrees. 

Scalping, I've seen a lot of people out scalping already here in Enid, Oklahoma and to be honest I'm fine with it. We may still have a couple of cool nights that dip down into the 20's but I don't think we'll have any temperatures cold enough cause significant injuries to your grass. 

As we continue to spray lawns one thing we will have to watch is how fast the winter annual weeds will begin to grow. They are trying to finish out their lives and are doing so by growing rapidly and putting seed heads on. What does this mean for us, we'll simply have to put a little more chemical on and change what we use a little bit to ensure we do a thorough job controlling these hard to kill weeds.

-If you read this please let me know, feel free to ask questions, I'd love to try and answer them.

how the one who died would love her like no one else would, I kind of think the prophecy was fellfillud. Kai loved her more than anybody else would. Kellan loved her like that too, but kai was always honest and he actually died so the person she loved more than him would live and make her happy. Honestly, I don't know if kellan would do that. He would probably be there to comfort her after, but I don't know if he would die for him. He would probably be mad she chose him, then be there when he's gone. Bug idk kellan surprises me sometimes I wish there would be more books from lexis pov after the break of dawn! I love her character so much! Shes the most interesting. I like mel, but she doesn't seem as interesting. Ive been reading this series since the first book came out and I always have to check on here for when new books to come out. I don't want that to end!!!!!!
