Spring is almost officially here, prepare lawns
March is a stimulating month for all gardeners, a month of revitalization of the gardener’s spirit. This enthusiasm is fueled by the fact that March brings the first day of spring. Spring begins with the vernal equinox at 7:02 a.m., eastern daylight time, on March 20 in the northern hemisphere. This day is the symbol of changing seasons and finds the earth’s axis oriented in a manner, which causes the sun to be located directly over the equator. Days and nights are approximately equal and the sun rises and sets due east and west.
