Is it time to scalp

Post by bwright » Wed Feb 13, 2019 2:03 pm

I can see some flecks of green in my mostly straw colored Bermuda lawn. This is both next to cement, and in the field of the lawn. A digital probe thermometer (for a smoker) shows a soil temp of 58-59 degrees 3" deep.

Is it time? Can I break out the old trusty Toro and scalp on down?
