1. Apply a grub control product in early summer
You’ll know you have a grub problem if your grass appears dead and brown and sits loosely on the soil. This is because the grubs eat the roots of the grass.
2. Know your grass type to determine watering and mowing standards.
Whether or not you’re fanatical about the look of your lawn, you should be aware of the grass varieties growing in your yard. Tall fescue, Bermuda, St. Augustine, Zoysia and other grass types require different irrigation schedules and mowing heights. Customize your maintenance plan to your particular turf.
