The two pics give an idea of the problem. My lawn has a slope, the grass
on which looks in very poor condition and has done for the last 2
I water regularly and cut with a Qualcast cylinder, not too short as
being on a slope it's easy to "scalp".
From the pics, could anyone offer any quick advice on what the problem
Many thanks in advance.
Looks scalped to me. Different type grasses can be cut differently but
I don't think most can be cut too short. See how your neighbors look
and maybe cut to their length.
Maybe you are watering too frequently instead of deeply to encourage
My lawn tends to look like this in heat of summer almost going
semi-dormant, to recover in fall.
I had a problem a few years ago that looked exactly like your photos.
Mine turned out to be grubs. I understand they eat the roots and the
I had to apply a couple of applications of grub eliminator (what ever
brand it was - I think Bayer).
Just my $.02 worth. Good luck.
Could be grubs or other insects or disease. Impossible to
determine just from a photo. You can lift back about a
square foot of turf in a few spots and look for grubs around
the root zone, a couple of inches down. If you have more
than a few, then that could be it. Also, when they eat the
roots, the turf can be pulled up easily, almost like carpet.
