when will the grass be green?

Hey here in michigan the only snow in my area is the big snow piles. Currently only one company is out doing some sort of landscaping work. When do you guys think you will be out working?

We just got 10 inches of snow 2 days ago. I'm hoping we will be mowing after Easter

I usually think of greenup in Michigan to be about April 15--tax day. Write the check and get out there and try to get the cash in the bank before it clears.
I think you need high temps of about 65.
Your soil temps are not much different than ours.

We are at least 4 days behind last year as regards the Growing Degree Days Base 32.
