That layer of brown, ugly grass across the lawn is not dormant, it's dead! This blanket effect blocks the early sun warmth to the new grass down below. It's time to get out the mower and "short mow" your lawn down to 1.5". Be sure to pick up the clippings and you'll see fantastic green all the way across your lawn. This opens up the lawn so it can grow thicker and healthier more quickly and be beautiful all season long! We also make sure you start your mower up right for the season and discuss the importance of a sharp blade at all times on your mower.
