Here are some of the common causes of brown patches in grass and what U.S. Lawns can do to help.
What Causes a Brown Lawn?
Although your first thought when your property’s lawn goes brown might be that it isn’t getting enough water, there are actually a wide variety of causes of brown or dead spots. Here are some of the common culprits behind a brown or patchy lawn:
- Animals: If your business Is located near a residential property, you might have dead or yellow spots caused by pets, most of the time dogs, urinating on the grass.
- Pests: There are many pests that can damage your turf. From grubs to grasshoppers to gophers, and anything in between, pests can make their homes in your lawn and kill your grass.
- Thatch: This loose layer of dead and living matter provides insulation against extreme temperatures, but too much thatch can cause problems.
- Disease: Things like root rot, fungus, brown patch, and mildew can all be seasonal problems or even symptoms of overwatering.
- Mower Problems: Whether it is dull mower blades hacking at your grass or scalping – cutting grass too short with a blade that is set too low – a lawn mower can be a culprit.
- Chemicals: From gasoline to bug spray, there are a wide variety of chemicals that can damage your lawn. Even incorrectly applied fertilizer or pesticides can turn your turf brown.
