Reason for Lawn Damage

A healthy, well-tended lawn is a beautiful thing, but like any planting, it can experience a variety of problems. Chewing insects, like grasshoppers, may attack grass blades, and burrowing critters, like gophers, may munch through grass roots and cause green tops to die. It’s not too difficult to spot dying patches of lawn. It is often a challenge, though, to detect what is causing the problem and how to treat it. Learn about common lawn pests and the symptoms they cause, along with some tips on treating the problem.
