Common Lawn Management Problems

Thin Turf - Excessive Weeds - Dead Areas

Here are some common lawn management problems and ways for you to investigate them yourself.

THIN TURF - Thin turf can be a result of many different problems, be sure to see grass and nutrition categories. If the soil, water, grass and nutrition are all in good ranges then the problem of thin turf is usually management related.

Inspect the turf closely and look for torn leaf blades after mowing. This will cause turf to be thin and shows that your mower blades need sharpening. Also be sure you only cut off 1/3 of the grass leaf blade at a time or less.

DEAD AREAS - If dead areas appear and all the above categories are in good shape, management is usually to blame. That means the problem is man-made. Try an on-line consultation.

Thin or dead turf.

After the problem that caused the thin turf has been addressed by looking over the previous four sections of Soil, Grass, Water, Nutrition now is time to replace the dead or damaged grass.  Thin or dead turf can be plugged with good grass from healthy areas of the lawn.  These new plugs will spread out and eventually cover the dead area with new, healthy grass.

The Best tool for transplantation grass from a healthy area to a thin or dead area is the Tubular Turf Plugger.
