EXTENSION CONNECTION: Spring lawn problems require patience

Published: Wednesday, April 17, 2013 at 06:52 PM.

Consistently warmer nights will allow soil temperatures to warm, which improves turf root growth, nutrient availability and lawn recovery.

If your lawn has not made a comeback by late spring or early summer, replant dead, declining areas.

Whatever you do, do not use lawn maintenance practices that do not work in Florida and contribute to your lawn’s demise.
