Every year in St. Louis the spring weather never ceases to amaze me. This year we received little rain in April and tons of rain in May.
The spring weather affected the lawns in St. Louis in many ways. The little rain in April had the lawns looking like it was mid summer. Some were starting to dry out and the growing really slowed down. Hardly ever will I advocate watering your lawn in April, but this year a little watering would have been acceptable. Lawns only need a deep watering about once a week.
The heavy rains in May gave the lawns in St. Louis a much needed drink. The lawns are now growing like crazy. Try to keep up on the lawn mowing. Do not let your lawn get too out of control between each cut. Mowing too much of the grass blade off will damage the lawn.
Now is the time to get that second application of fertilizer on your yard. This will continue to feed your lawn with the nutrients it needs to stay green and healthy.
