As I write this column on Monday afternoon, I’m looking at a white landscape. But the snow is rapidly disappearing, and it is likely that a rapid growth of lawn grass is not far behind. That first spring mowing, usually in late March, begins your most important annual lawn duties.
The first mowing makes the lawn look spring-like and very attractive. So, when the first clumps of grass grow above the mowing height, mow, even if a lot of the yard doesn’t need to be mowed yet.
