Grubs Be Gone!
If your lawn is struggling with grubs, you’re not alone! At this time of year, grubs are looking for moist healthy lawns in which to lay their eggs. During late summer and into the fall, grubs feed on turf grass roots and can severely damage your lawn’s root system. One of the most common symptoms of grubs is the onset of skunks and raccoons feeding on your lawn. Here’s what you can do:
- Rake the affected area to remove dead grass, then distribute grass seed evenly over the area.
- Rake the grass seed into the soil, then cover with a layer of topsoil or compost.
- Keep the newly seeded area moist until seeds have germinated, and seedlings matured.
- Resume your regular mowing and maintenance routine!

At this point in the season, you’ve got a good handle on those pesky weeds that pop up here and there throughout your lawn. Now’s the time to ensure that your paths, patios, and driveways are weed-free as well. Hometurf is proud to use a selective weed control spot treatment to effectively target individual weeds, thereby reducing the unnecessary spraying of herbicides across a larger area.
It’s important to remember that traditional weed control, such as our selective spot treatment, is limited to treating weeds once they emerge. The long-term elimination of weeds also requires aeration and overseeding to improve the thickness of a lawn, which is shown to be the best defense against weeds returning.

Without sparking the end of summer scaries, now is the time to start thinking about what you can do to prepare your lawn for cooler weather. Hometurf’s fall add-on services are designed to promote root regrowth to rejuvenate your lawn after a sweltering summer, as well as to prepare your lawn for chilly winter weather ahead.
Hometurf’s De-thatching Service utilizes a mechanical power rake to remove heavy thatch buildup that can prevent poor nutrient uptake and improper drainage, halting the growth of new grass.
