My lawn right now looks yellow.
I finally learned how Bossard does this. He mentioned it in an article a couple of weeks ago. He turns on the sprinklers (because the city water is actually warmer than the ground in late March) and then coats the entire outfield with a thin layer of activated charcoal. After this, he puts tarps over the grass. All three of these things help heat up the ground and bring the dormant grass back to life.
