It’s the time of year again that lawn can easily start to have issues, at least in certain regions of the nation. With such powerful heat waves, lawn can generally start to die of too much heat. But there are plenty of other common lawn issues that often afflict a lawn that can strike any time throughout the year. Nobody likes to stroll outside to a massive dead patch. Diagnosing lawn issues properly can really help bring your lawn back to life.
The biggest grass malady is poor soil. That is the bane of any weak or dying plant. That and shortage of water. If your grass is planted in poor soil or if you aren’t watering properly, you’ll find your grass growing in thin and patchy. Work out a better watering schedule and try and find methods of fertilizing more.
Another of the biggest lawn maladies out there is rabbits. Rabbits can ravage grass, eating one section of lawn down to the nubs and destroying it before moving on. Rabbits aren’t grazers who run around a lot on the grass. Conversely, they regularly stay in one place, usually a spot where they think they’ll be able to leave quickly from danger.
Pet urine may also be the source of plenty of Issues. If your lawn is dying in regular, circular patterns, you could have a pet that has staked out your lawn as a preferred area to mark their territory. Even if you do not have a dog of your own, you may have a neighbor who walks their dog by your house each week who lets their dog use your lawn as a pit stop.
A last lawn killer are grubs and worms that live underneath the surface. These grubs consume the roots of the lawn and will ultimately lead it to fully die. If you can pull up clumps of your lawn with little effort, that is to say, if there are not roots left on the end of your dying lawn, then you might want to invest in a bottle of grub poison. Even dead lawn will typically still be moderately hard to pull up. The roots will still be intact. Hope these tips help.
Common grass problems can take an otherwise healthy plot of grass and make it into an ugly eye sore. If your lawn is really not in good shape though, you may want to consider laying sod.
