Every spring, Mother Nature’s alarm clock for our lawns changes. The soil temperature determines each Turfgrass variety and when they will wake up. My neighbor’s lawn is an older variety of bluegrass and they have already cut the lawn three times this year.
The lawn shown above is a 50/50 mix of Bluegrass and fescue (the perfect blend) and it received its first cut of 2016 on March 26. Some total fescue lawns have not been mowed yet, because tall fescue is a southern grass that prefers very warm soil conditions before coming out of dormancy.
