Get Rid of Brown Patches With Artificial Grass

Brown, yellow, and barren patches on natural lawns are difficult to get rid of especially when you have pets. Not only are they hard to get rid of but it’s also frustrating to understand why the problem is happening. Patchy grass happens for numerous reasons.

Here are several examples of why this happens:

  • Water is scarce for the grass.
  • The grass receives direct sunshine for the majority of the day.
  • You fertilize your yard excessively.
  • Your soil is deficient.
  • Your sprinklers are set too high or you are overwatering.
  • You have dogs or other creatures that go to the potty in your yard.
  • You have an excessive number of trees in your yard.
    Pests have infested your lawn.
  • You’ve got the wrong kind of grass.
  • Your yard is infected.

Once you figure out why your lawn is dying you’ll have to find a way to fix it. The majority of the time you’ll want to figure it out fast before your entire lawn dies off. Often times it’s trial and error if you’re not a professional.

Here are several ways to get rid of brown patches:

  • You can reseed your lawn with grass seed to cover up the dead patches.
  • You can dig up your topsoil and replace it with more nutrient-rich soil.
  • You can use fertilizers that are designed especially for brown patches.
  • Instead of trying to repair the patch, you can just replace it with a new grass variety.
  • You can try using a pesticide that will kill off any insects.
  • If you have fungus gnats, you can spray your lawn with insecticides
  • You can use natural fertilizers such as compost
