When localized areas of
dead or dying grass show up in your lawn, fix these by patching.
What to look for
- Isolated damage caused by insects, diseases, or abiotic (environmental
or nutritional) disorders
- Localized areas invaded by weeds
- Dead areas from an excess or lack of water as a result of poor
coverage by sprinklers
- Low areas allowing water to puddle instead of drain off
- Burned spots caused by herbicide or fertilizer spills or dog
If the problem is localized, you can patch your lawn following
the recommended steps. However before you begin, be sure to find
the cause of the problem and solve it.
