A. Grass problems:

This includes crab grass, clover, dandelions, bent grass, compact soil and brown patch disease.


1. What to do now:

  • Aerate your soil 2-3 times before winter.

  • Fertilize your lawn so that the soil is primed and prepared for next season.

  • Apply a preventive fungicide

  • Seed with high quality seed

2. How to make sure it doesn't happen next year:

  • Seed with high quality seed (late summer and very early spring)

  • Aerate your soil in the spring.

  • Fertilize your lawn regularly.

  • Apply a preventive fungicide

B. Bug and Animal Damage:

This includes Chinch bugs, Japanese beetles, dogs and cats.


1. What to do now:

  • For external damage from larger animals you can reseed, fence off and fill any holes.

  • For bugs and beetles. You can apply oils and pesticides (try organic)

2. How to make sure it doesn't happen next year:

  • Plant the right seed that will hep fight and resit bugs and beetles.

  • Fence off areas for the animals to use (or stay out of).

  • Utilize organic pesticides and oils.
