Brown Spots on Lawn
If you are a homeowner that has experienced brown spots on your lawn and wondering what it is, you are not alone. It can be frustrating with constant lawn maintenance and your lawn still doesn’t look the way you would like it to. There are many different reasons why brown spots will show up on the lawn and several ways to treat the lawn and restore it such as:
• Dog Urine
If you have a dog, dog urine can cause brown spots in the yard. Yes, I know, gross, but when dogs urinate on the ground, it burns the lawn due to the acidic and nitrogen content in the urine. It’s easy to recognize brown spots on the lawn as they will have brown centers and dark green outer rings. If you are experiencing this, trying Scotts EZ Seed Dog Spot Remover which can help repair up to 100 dog urine spots. The Scotts EZ Seed also helps to prevent the lawn from continued disease.
Weed dieback occurs when crabgrass, foxtail, and bluegrass begin to die. This can be a result of high food traffic areas resulting in dead weeds. A professional gardener can help patch up these spots by applying a fungicide treatment.
If critters such as raccoons, chipmunks, and squirrels have invaded your yard, it’s time to take action. These animals can dig, causing the yard to look horrendous. Usually, these wild animals are digging to look for food. A grub problem could be the reason why critters are invading the lawn, but this is not always the case. If your lawn is healthy, you may have about five grubs per square foot, however, a much larger invasion can attract more wild animals. Applying an organic grub control can help reduce the grubs and further prevent the wild animals from digging in your yard.
Overdue Lawn Maintenance
If you have a busy schedule, it can be hard to keep up with the demand for lawn care. Neglecting your lawn can lead to disease, critters, brown spots, and excess thatch buildup. If this is the case, hiring a professional can help take care of your lawn.
If you are experiencing brown spots on your lawn, take control of the situation now before it gets out of hand. Contacting a company, like Bailey’s Lawn Care, can help restore your lawn back to normal. If you do not wish to contact a lawn care company, with some work and time, there are several methods and products on the market such as Scotts Lawn care to restore your lawn back to normal.
