The brown spots on the lawn indicate grass death or the agony of the grass in the brown area. There can be many causes that lead to lawn browning – some are easier to cope with, others more difficult to get rid of. Here are some major causes:
– Physical damage – if the blades of the mower are not sufficiently sharp, they hurt the grass blades during the cutting process, causing wounds that don’t heal quickly;
– Trimming – lawn that is cut too short is more sensitive to impact, it dries out faster and its roots are weaker, so it is more likely to die when the conditions are not ideal and it is too hot outside;
– Animal excrement – dog and cat urine, bird dropping, the excrement left behind by rodents that visit the house during the night are all very acidulous substances that are very harmful for your grass;
– Poor-quality soil – soil that contains too much clay, is poor in nutrients and contains buried debris prevent the lawn from getting the amount of minerals and other substances necessary for its health;
– Diseases and pests – grubs, chinch bugs, ants and snails can also cause your lawn to develop brown patches. For help with your lawn and garden, check out https://www.revive.com/how-revive-works/how-it-works/.
