We all want a blemish free lawn. One of the biggest complaints that we often hear from potential lawn care customers is that they have yellow spots in their grass. These spots can be little patches here and there or large areas of grass. There can be a few different reasons why your green grass is spotted with yellow patches.
- Drought – If your grass isn’t getting enough water due to drought or under watering, this can cause grass to turn from a healthy green to a dull yellow. If this is the case, water your grass in the early morning one to two times a week.
- Nutrient Deficiency – Lawns are living organisms just like humans and animals. Humans, animals, and lawns need their nutrients to be healthy. If you haven’t fertilized your lawn in a while, this could be the reason for the yellow, dead spots.
- Chemical Burn – Fertilizer, pesticide, or other chemicals applied incorrectly can burn your lawn. Be sure to fully read and follow directions when applying chemicals to your lawn. Water and patience is the best remedy for a chemically burnt lawn.
- Animal Damage – Urine damage can be from family pets, rabbits, or other animals that may make their way into your lawn. Again, the best solution for urine damage by animals is to water in the urine before it can set in.
- Lawn Disease – If none of the above seem likely reasons for why your lawn has yellow spots, lawn disease, or fungus, may be the cause. The best way to know for sure is to call your professional lawn care company.
