A Lawn’s Awakening

As the seasons change and nature starts its yearly renewal process, homeowners eagerly await when their lawns transform from winter’s dull hues to spring’s lively greens. This transition is delightful in Texas and Illinois and signifies that warmer days are coming.


In Texas, the time of year when your lawn turns green depends on the state’s varied climates. Due to the prevalence of different grass types, such as Bermuda, St. Augustine, and Zoysia, the emergence of greenery can vary across regions. Generally speaking, in North Texas, grass will begin to green up in mid-April when soil temperatures are consistently above 75 degrees. This is the time when we recommend that you begin fertilizing.

Illinois, Indiana

Illinois and Indiana experience a delightful transition in their more temperate climates. The state’s popular grass varieties, such as Kentucky Bluegrass, Fine Fescue, and Perennial Ryegrass, typically come to life in the later weeks of April or early May. This is when temperatures rise and daylight hours increase, providing the ideal conditions for grass growth. You can generally start fertilizing in these areas in early March or April, weather permitting.

In Conclusion

The transformation of lawns from brown to green in Texas, Illinois, and Indiana reflects nature’s cyclical rhythm. Whether you live in the warmth of Texas or the more temperate climate of Illinois and Indiana, spring promises lush, green landscapes. Therefore, keep an eye on your local weather forecast, embrace the anticipation, and get ready to welcome the green revival in your own backyard.
