Sometimes the downtime of the winter season and the Holidays can help our minds wander. This is a great reminder to get back to the basics. After all, this is just grass! It grows in the cracks in the sidewalks! Most lawns I see that need imporvement aren't being mowed frequently enough, are over- or under-fertilized, and are very compacted. Use this time in the winter to plan out an optimal fert program. Get your mower ready for spring and resolve to mow it frequently enough in the summer, even though its tough to keep up with. Core aerate in the summer (St. Aug, right?). It's just grass! Don't overthink it!
