    Here in O.P. (J-Ville) things are slow, but promising. Weather has been decent, nice heavy rains, maybe we are in for an early spring, would be nice, I'm bored!!!!!

    Has to be all the rain. I never remember such a quick recovery from dormant. None of the subsequent cold weather seemed to affect the green up. Of course, the zoysia still looks terrible, but when doesn't it? ;)
     
  4. One of my nicest/ healthiest yards went from green to brown after one of the freezes. About 5-6 weeks later you would not have known it went dormant. All green and very healthy looking.

    This will be my last EOW week. 75% of my lawns needed cutting.

    Maybe not weekly cutting yet. But definately weekly visits. Lots of crap from the wind and rain lately. My SA lawns are green and showing growth.

  8. Oh ok I see. Yea, my nice yards are all healthy and green. I will be doing fertilizations next week on turf, prob cutting back plant material as cold weather doesn't look like it will happen again down here and fertilizing ornamentals as well.
