Your lawn and ground cover should look beautiful
Our lawns are usually the most visible and beautiful part of our landscaping. So, when lawn problems start, it makes a big impact on the appeal of our property. There are many causes of problems in our lawn and ground cover.
- Weeds: There are many weeds that can invade and slowly, but surely, take over your beautiful lawn. For example, dandelion, white clover, chickweed, or grass like weeds such as crabgrass, foxtails, stinkgrass, among many others.
- Dead Patches: Dead patches have many origins too, including insects such as the cutworm, bluegrass billbug, chinch bugs, and greenbugs. Additionally, dead patches in your lawn can be caused by chemical or fertilizer burn, urine damage, and fungi.
- Powder on Grass or Rust: Your lawn loses its beauty when it has a powdery mildew or rust, which is a very common disease among residential lawns.
- Thin Turf: Thin turf can be caused by many issues, such as: drought, heat and cold, leaf spots, shade, soil problems, thatch, and traffic.
- Off-colored: When your lawn becomes dark or yellows, it looks unattractive. The causes of this can come from a fungus, such as fairy rings, a dull lawn mower, inadequate nitrogen in the soil, or an iron deficiency.
- Holes: Holes in your landscape are usually caused by gophers, voles or moles in Southern California. The most common of course is the gopher. Gopher holes can devastate a beautiful landscape and lawn. Read more about gophers here.
- Mushrooms: Mushrooms in your lawn are a sign of problems that must be dealt with effectively. They are also unsightly.
- Moss and Algae: These conditions are usually caused by poor soil conditions that don’t allow your turf to grow well.
