Not Sure What’s Wrong with Your Lawn? We’ll Help You Figure It Out

Not sure if it’s the drought that’s done your yard in? Signs of drought damage include brown, dry grass and bare patches on the lawn. These aren’t the only things you might be seeing. Crabgrass and other broadleaf weeds are powerful, persistent plants that can establish a foothold even during severe drought conditions. Some homes in our area have issues with grubs, moles, and other lawn damaging pests. And sometimes it’s the actual soil that’s the issue: if it doesn’t have the right nutrients, your grass isn’t going to grow.

How can you tell what the problem actually is? Let one of our lawn experts take a look at your situation. They’ll come to your home and assess the situation. With years of experience and significant industry training, our team knows how to identify the root cause of many lawn problems. After diagnosis, the next step is to suggest treatment options, including seeding hardy, drought-tolerant grasses, fertilizing the lawn, aggressively containing crabgrass and other weeds, and more.
