Year after year, the weather roller coaster of mid-Missouri always keeps us on our toes. With record heat over the month of September and then an early frost in October, your lawn had some ups and downs.

In Missouri, the weather is so unpredictable! The weather also very much impacts everything from insect populations to plant health. One thing you can count on as spring heads into summer, though, is that things will start happening in the dynamic, ever-changing environment that is your lawn and landscape.
