The grass is finally turning green in Plainfield!

Our first lawn care step has finally begun!

Well, it’s about time for Spring to arrive! After what seemed like the winter that would never end, we are finally seeing 60 degrees in the Plainfield, Naperville, and Bolingbrook areas. Most of the yards are starting to turn green, and with the coming rain and high 60s or low 70s this weekend, it should really kick start everything – bushes, lawns, and trees will get their wake-up call from Mother Nature.

Punxsutawney Phil Was Wrong!

Winter is Hanging on for Dear Life

If you remember Ground Hog’s Day this past February 2nd, the most famous ground hog, Punxsutawney Phil emerged from his hole and did not see his shadow, signaling an early spring. Apparently someone was blocking his sun. Winter is hanging on for dear life in northeastern Illinois, and according to the 10-day forecast, the best day we are going to see is day 10. The first day of Spring, March 20th, has a predicted high temperature of 23 degrees. Hang in there, because we are hoping for everyone’s sake that this dreadful weather will not last much longer.

Dreadful Winter Damage is Happening Now

As if the cold temperatures, snow, and ice weren’t annoying enough, many of our lawns were damaged by the snow plows during the most recent winter storm. Be sure to read up on this problem and several other causes of winter damage to your lawn on our winter damage page in the lawn problems section of
