There are many common problems that homeowners face when caring for their lawn. Here are some of those problems and how to diagnose them:
Grass Eating Grubs
Do you have areas of dead grass in your yard? White grub may be your prime suspect. Grubs kill your grass by eating the roots and working their way through your lawn.
Dog owners may often find small patches of dead grass in their beautiful lawn. This could be caused by the dog’s pit stop.
Dandelions & Other Weeds
Those little yellow flowers are certainly not ideal for adding color to your landscape. This is a very common problem to lawns everywhere. When the weeds take over, let the war begin!
The actual definition of thatch is “a tightly intermingled layer of living and dead stems, leaves, and roots of grass, which develops between the layer of green vegetation and the soil surface. Too much thatch hinders grass growth and limits the effectiveness of fertilizer. You will want to have this removed before tackling other lawn treatments.
