I was out today to rake my lawn and I have many brown spots. I started raking over the brown spots and all the dead sod just seperated from the ground and rolled up. I can send photos to anyone that is interested and can think they cvan help. Thanx.

Could it be grubs? I get spots and use the grubx and it seems to work.

sounds like grubs to me. grubx would be the proper treatment.

if they are japanese beetle grubs, there's something specific for them - can't remember the name of the product at the moment, tho.

any good garden center would be able to help you out. and the package for the jb grubs has pictures on it of what the grub looks like (it's a pretty darn BIG grub, considering the size of the beetle)

edit: just saw it in another post. milky spore for japanese beetle grubs.

[wavey] Hello everyone. I'm a newbie here to The Gardner's Forum. I have a lawn question. Last week after a full year, my husband and I decided to put up a fence to block our 3 dogs out of most of the back yard. They really trompeled it down to dead grass and dirt. We have been watering it really well after fertilizing and seeding it. Already I am seeing a difference.

Is there anyway to speed the growing process, and when can I mow the already thick established grass without harming the new sprouts?

Take care and thank you.

Fertilization will speed things along. I use a granular organic fertilizer made from poultry manure. I also spray every 3 weeks during the summer with a mix recommended by Jerry Baker:

1 cup ammonia
1 can beer
1/2 c. dish soap (lemon scented Ajax)
1/2 c. liquid lawn fertilizer (fish emulsion and
seaweed mix)
1/2 c. corn syrup

If you can, wait till the new grass is 3 inches tall before you mow.

johnCT, no it's definately not a grub problem, it's 3 dogs running/playing problem. But, I think we're making a comeback with it. Thank you.
